3 West Club Wedding

I’ve had the pleasure to photograph several weddings at the 3 West Club in midtown Manhattan and wanted to share this beautiful day starring Francesca and Gregory. Their wedding took place this past winter and they were a joy to work with. I don’t have to tell you beautiful Francesca looked you’ll see for yourself but she was also so sweet..She and Greg loved my ideas for photos and were up for anything.

 

Francesca and Gregory’s day started at a midtown Manhattan church named St. Malachy’s (also called the Actor’s Chapel). The interior space was quite stunning with high vaulted ceilings and an interesting setup of the pews, a bit unique which I liked. The ceremony was quick (which I also like haha!) and we headed straight to 3 West to do some formal photos and get right into the cocktail hour then dinner and dancing.

 

3 West club is one of my favorite venues they just offer some amazing backdrops and I love the location.. the cocktail hour is on a gorgeous balcony and gives us some great views.. I think we really got some beautiful shots of this winter wedding I hope you enjoy!

Queens County Farm Museum Wedding – A fall wedding in NYC

Marie and Joseph had a beautiful wedding this past fall at the Queens County Farm Museum in Queens, New York. Their gorgeous  sunny wedding began at Bethlehem Lutheran church in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn followed by a quick stop at the Verrazano bridge for a few photos, and then off to the Queens County Farm where we got to enjoy the beautiful grounds, weather, and pretty peacocks just roaming around.

 

Marie is an attorney and Joe is an electrician and they met (this is really cute) at a science fiction convention where they went to watch Mystery Science Theater 3000 movies.  Joe proposed to Marie in Philadelphia on the top steps from Rocky. I love how they used the robots from MST3K as their cake toppers and check out that amazing vintage car, a 1959 Ambassador Rambler.

 

The day was awesome, we got a ton of unique, beautiful wedding photos. And thank you to my second photographer Ryan Dearth for supplying some great images to compliment mine. Enjoy!

Wedding Crashers – Brooklyn Wedding Fair

For the second year in a row I participated in a Brooklyn Based wedding fair called Wedding Crashers. Before my first fair last year I had never done one..they all sounded a bit cheesy and I just didn’t like the idea of being in a Marriott trying to meet potential clients..but when I heard about this one at the Park Slope Bell House and who some of the other vendors were, I wanted in! Last year I gave a speech on what to look for in a wedding photographer this year I focused more on staying in my booth and meeting some awesome couples with amazing sounding weddings around Brooklyn and beyond.

A few of my favorite vendors that were there:

Naturally Delicious – I’ve been lucky enough to photograph a few weddings where

Nine Cakes – beautiful looking and tasting wedding cakes / cupcakes

The Ketubah – I took a few nice photos of their Ketubahs which are among the nicest I’ve ever seen.

One Girl Cookies – yum yum.. just did a wedding of theirs at the Metropolitan building and their desserts were beautiful

The Engagements – Kick Ass Wedding Band

Rock Paper Scissors Events – wonderful wedding decoration/planning

Root Stock and Quade – beautiful stuff

Tammy Golson Events – a great New York City wedding planner

Lion in the Sun – they make lovely invitations and thank you cards

I took a few photos before the show really got started..
