Catskills, NY Wedding Photography – Full Moon Resort

I’m really excited to share one of the most fun weddings I had the honor of photographing at the Full Moon Resort for a wonderful couple named Eve and Josh.  When I met with this engaged couple and found out I would have the chance to photograph a weekend long wedding in upstate New York, I was super excited. We started out with an engagement session in Brooklyn and after seeing how those photos came out I knew they were going to be perfect for my style of photography.

Everyone had such an amazing time at this wedding….from hysterically funny speeches to musical performances, and short films (this was a seriously talented group of people). There was a bbq rehearsal dinner, a gorgeous ceremony, and after parties every night. And all this before the really fabulous wedding reception. The food was delicious, the wedding tent was picture perfect and Eve looked simply stunning as you can see. Eve and Josh laughed and danced with everyone, and just showed the kind of emotion and spirit a photographer like me wants to see when capturing their special day.

Enjoy the photos..I know there’s a lot of them but I was there shooting almost 2 days and didn’t want to miss any of these special moments!

This is probably my favorite wedding photo from the weekend:

Brooklyn Engagement Session – A walk through Prospect Park

Marne and Josh met up with me a few weeks ago to take some amazing engagement pictures in Prospect Park, Brooklyn. I gotta start by saying how much fun it was to work with both of them, Marne was making me laugh the whole time…she has a great sense of humor (as is evidenced by one of her silly faces below). The weather was perfect for photos, we got some great diffused light as well as some late day sun (nothing beats that for photos). Their wedding is coming up in November at Temple Avodah in Oceanside, NY and if our engagement session is any indication of how the photos are going to look..I think it will be an awesome day.

John Leguizamo, Shake Shack, Edible Queens, and the New York Mets

When I got the call for this assignment I was excited to hear it was going to be my first magazine cover..and when I found out it would be with John Leguizamo I was even for into it, as I’ve always enjoyed him from his films to the HBO specials he’s done. The story was for Edible Queens, a NYC based food magazine where I’ve been doing a lot of photography recently. We went to Mets stadium and John ate some Shake Shack Burgers and some sushi for the story.

The shoot was great and John was a lot of fun to work with, and afterwards the Mets people treated us all to some Shake Shack burgers and fries, so how could you complain (its one of my favorite burgers in the world).

Then to top it off the in house photographer at the Mets asked me during my shoot if he could take a few shots of John, so the Mets would have some photos to use.  I always try to be friendly to fellow photographers so I made sure he got a few good ones in. Afterwards he came up and thanked me and said, “Hey anytime you want to come to the stadium and sit down with the press photographers let me know and I’ll have you come in and take some shots.” How could I pass that up? So last week I made it to the Mets vs. Colorado game with Johan Santana (one of their ace pitchers) on the mound. It was an awesome game and I got a chance to try out a 300mm lens which was pretty cool (brings you close to the action). Now I just hope no one gets mad at me for saying I’m a Yankees fan 🙂
