Shooting Melanie and Matt's engagement session was a TON of fun. They picked out a bunch of hot spots that they frequented when they lived in the Upper West Side in New York City. They chose the subway station they always got out of, the supermarket they always shopped at, the cafe they always got their sweets on and then the gardens they used to take strolls in nearby their old apartment. This entire engagement photo shoot was everything that represented their relationship-- and that's what made it so special. Even just being a part of the New York City traffic jams was all part of their lifestyle. Not to mention- I love shooting in the most unique places- supermarkets O__O!! Working with these two was so easy and fun and these photos definitely capture their relationship and personality. I love what I do and I love being a New York City wedding photographer. Here are some of my fav shots! Enjoy!
These two lovebirds met in Oxford (yes, the one in the UK). Jen was there, studying for her masters, and James was there, studying for his PhD. Jen is from New York City, and James is from the UK. They fell in love while rowing together on the same team- so they share an affinity towards boats. They are the funniest, quirkiest couple I've photographed with yet. I knew Jen since HS, she's a friend of mine at LaGuardia High School. Since then, she's gone all over the world to study ancient artifacts, go on digs, and write up our history! I have a friend that is a REAL archeologist! I love it!! And she is now at Brown University doing her Ph.D and studying all the ancient works of our earth! It is SO cool. Jen and James really wanted a "New York City" wedding. It was small and intimate affair at Central Park, but afterwards, they wanted to get photographs to remember their time in New York City together. We hit up pretty beautiful spots in Central Park, and then stopped by the Metropolitan Museum of Art (for history, of course!) and then some over in Brooklyn. (Where Jen is from!).
It was such a beautiful day, a beautiful wedding ceremony and a beautiful group of people to spend time with. I’m so happy that they chose me to be their New York City Wedding Photographer!!! I'm so happy for Jen and James and I wish them the best on their journey as husband and wife!
So happy to have been able to photograph with Alice and Jason Wu for their big wedding day in July. I photographed their engagement session before! It was a gorgeous outdoors ceremony with many friends and family. The day couldn't have been any more perfect. It was a cool summer morning and the day went so smoothly. I've known Alice and Jason since before they even dated, and now they were married. It has been such a journey and such a beautiful one at that. I am so very happy for them both. I could tell that Alice's father had a bittersweet moment, letting his only daughter go, but I could also tell he was proud, happy and more than willing to allow her to be given to such an honest, faithful and strong man, Jason. After walking his father down the aisle, her father, right before giving up her hand, gave a heartfelt speech. It was a speech that evoked many tears (I seem to cry at every wedding I shoot and then again when I edit ;__;), a speech that was spoken out of love..and a speech that really touched Alice's heart. It was beyond beautiful! I am so happy to have been there to witness such a glorious day and moment, and would like to share some of my favorite shots from the day with you all! Enjoy!
