Village Club at Lake Succes Wedding – Lindsay and Ray

I’ve been meaning to post this wedding for awhile now but with my busy schedule I just didn’t get around to it..until today and I’m glad I did! 🙂 Lindsay and Ray had a beautiful wedding on Long Island and I knew after getting some awesome engagement photos together (like this one) we’d make some special wedding photographs. The church was in a really cute spot in Brookville NY called The Church of St. Paul, The Apostle. Then the reception followed at The Village Club of Lake Success, in Great Neck New York.

Lindsay looked gorgeous with that beaming smile and infectious laugh, and Ray has this sense of humor which really plays well with my style of photography. You can see how much fun this wedding was, everyone was laughing and dancing like crazy, the band called New York City Swing, was really awesome and got an ovation when they stopped for a quick break. I think we caught some really special moment and with my blend of wedding photo journalism and a few special posed portraits (love that elevator shot) I think this one came out awesome… Oh and thank you to the talented Luke Blanco, my second photographer for the day. Let me know what you think thanks for stopping by!

New York Times Editorial Assignment – Fat Radish

Today, Sam Sifton (the restaurant critic for the New York Times) reviewed Fat Radish, a new restaurant on the Lower East Side of NYC. His review is HERE on the New York Times website.  He gave it a nice one star review (which is good rating to get on their scale for a restaurant like this).  I got the assignment and went to shoot it last week.. I love the vibe of the restaurant and the overall atmosphere. The lighting is very dim and tricky for photos but I think I managed to get a few really cool shots.

Some of these dishes below include Monkfish Vindaloo; Crabmeant Gratin; Hamburger; and Rilletes
