LES Engagement // Sam + Matt

I have not posted an engagement session in a LONNNNGGG time, so I thought this little Lower East Side session would be a perfect way to kick of Valentine’s day! I love everything about this one, and how New York it feels. It feels like a time capsule of Sam and Matt’s lives, and that makes me happy. Wishing you all so much love!

The Foundry Wedding // Caity + Alex

This is from my last wedding of the year shot at the Foundry in LIC, and I couldn’t be more overjoyed to shared this one with you today! Caity and Alex are one of those dream couples that just trusts the process the whole way through and manages to enjoy the heck out of every moment, while making everyone around them feel great along the way. Everyone who worked on this day commented over and over about how much we loved this couple, and that there couldn’t have been a better way to end out the year, than with such a lovely couple! Thanks so much to Jose Rolon for sending these beauts along, and to Lara my trustee second who rocked this one this me!

The Wythe Hotel Wedding// Brad + Brian

Getting to work with clients like Brad and Brian is what makes our jobs and lives such a joy. When they reached out to us, we knew immediate that this was a fit, since they had a clear vision, and it involved have lots of FUN! No fuss, no muss, just a good time with their friends and family at The Wythe Hotel, one of our favorite venues! The love that they share comes through clearly in the photos captured by Shannon and Carly, and I am obsessed with the party pics, and the glow in the dark elements that they threw in, which clearly added to the celebration! Thanks for having us Brad and Brian! Congrats!

This has been quite a year for us, and I am delighted to share this gorgeous wedding at The Foundry with you!!! These two just kill me!

I love that she went with something other than white, and I would love to see more risk takers like her!! The bouquet just complements her look so beautifully, and Hiyeran is not too shabby himself! Don't they make such a cute couple!? We love weddings at The Foundry, and we still have more to share!! This gorgeous one shot by Shannon, and stay tuned for more!

When people slay like this, it’s very difficult to even come up with something to say, when the photos speak for themselves! Lindsey, I am obsessed with your look, and that cape!!! Damn!! Slay all day! Ryan, come on, just look at those dreamy eyes, and lumberjack beard. If this isn’t one for the books, I don’t know what is!! Like I’ve said, Brooklyn weddings are the best, and there is a new venue in town! The Box House Hotel has been around, but they have a new addition, to their rooftop with Glasserie Events, and it doesn’t get much better! Look at those views!

Fort Tryon Park Japanese Wedding//Keiko + David

When Keiko reached out to us about her wedding, I was so delighted to hear from her! She is one of my past clients, who is part of a really amazing string quartet called Attacca Quartet. I’ve done several photo shoots for them, so we were already familiar with each other’s work! Unfortunately I wasn’t available for their date, but Carly was there to capture every moment, and the photos make me feel like I was there! When Keiko told me she was going to have a Japanese ceremony and would also be wearing a kimono, I was thrilled! I’ve never been part of a Japanese wedding ceremony, so I really didn’t know what to expect! I’m so happy that Carly captured it all in such great detail, and that even the fall colors matched her kimono! The whole event is so special, and I love all the little moments including the sake ceremony, and sake bottles dressed to look like them! Congrats Keiko and David! Thank you for sharing your special day with us!

Brooklyn Wedding at Hotel Indigo and 501 Union// Erica + Harry

What can I say?? These two are gorgeous, magical, and were an utter delight to work with, and they threw one heck of a party! I can’t tell you how much I love working in Brooklyn, and working with such great clients is truly a blessing! Also, I’m not sure if I have ever met a more enthusiastic groom! Seriously, I think Harry was more excited about getting married than any other groom I have come across! He cracked me up the whole day, and Erica served all the beauty all day! Oh, and those shots at the end of the night are my fave! Love you both, and big congrats!

Brooklyn Wedding Photographer // Liberty Warehouse Wedding

I am absolutely delighted to share this wedding with you today! This was one of those weddings, that just seemed like an absolute dream looking back on the photos! Catherine and Arthur had a big church ceremony in Manhattan, and then invited all 350 of their guests to hop on a water taxi to Brooklyn, where they celebrated their big day in style at the Liberty Warehouse. There were so many special parts of the day, like the fact that Catherine wore a third generation wedding dress, which was first worn by her grandmother, then by her mother, and now by Catherine. Then they gave all of their friends and family a true New York experience by hoping on a water taxi, and taking a moment to pass by the Statue of Liberty for everyone to get a good look all during magic hour! I’m pretty pleased with how this came out, and Viva Max, did the best job putting this whole day celebration together! Thank you Catherine and Arthur, this one is truly for the books!
