When Michelle came down this flight of stairs I caught the moment when she saw her friends and family with her dress on.. it was a wonderful point in time and the start of what would be a fabulous wedding. She looked stunning and that dress was pretty awesome I love this shot. More to come from this wedding at Buttermilk Falls Inn, a gorgeous wedding venue in New York.
What a special, unique wedding this was. When Jasmine and George came to me they told me about their Victorian, steampunk themed idea for a wedding, I tried to visualize it as we met but it wasn’t until the day their wedding came I really got to see all the creativity and effort that they both put into this amazing wedding. From her seriously awesome hot pink hair and shoes to that stunning dress and the handmade timepiece lapels this wedding was just so kick-ass!
The Foundry in Long Island City provided a wonderful backdrop for their vision and from the DJ to the ceremony it was just one big awesome success.
Thank you so much to Rock-N-Roll Bride who recently featured this wedding on their blog, I was honored to have these images appear there in a blog post. Enjoy the photos.

Photo of the Day today is from that special wedding I did in Boston this past fall.. a traditional Chinese wedding with a couple who LOVED photography. I felt like if it was up to them we would have spent all day running around town taking photos!
Also as a sidenote if you’re around and online tonight and would like to hear me talk a bit about photography, I’m honored to be doing an interview with a bunch of Google+ photographers you can check it out HERE.
Todays photo of the day is from a wedding at the Newark Museum in Newark, New Jersey. What a cool wedding this was and the fact that Sarah and Drew chose the Newark Museum for their wedding was pretty awesome. Being able to walk around these amazing rooms and take photos was a great opportunity. One of my favorites from the day was this particular shot we took before the reception got started. I really enjoyed their wedding and look forward to posting more photos soon!
Jeffrey proposed out of the blue to Briana over pizza and some vintage champagne.. after she said yes, Jeffrey had a town car waiting for her to whisk her away to France for a winery tour. What a wonderful way to start their story.
I met Jeffrey a few years ago through the restaurant scene in New York City while he was the GM at a restaurant named Scarpetta.. we had a good time hanging out during a few photo sessions and when he told me he was getting married and wanted me to photograph his wedding I was honored.
The entire day was awesome from their Central Park ceremony to being whisked away in a vintage NYC cab to the foodie lovers paradise of a wedding reception at the The Stanard Hotel (formerly known as the Cooper Square Hote). Negroni’s to drink, a stacked raw bar bursting with oysters and shrimp, and suckling pigs or “porchetta” as they’re called. There was a jazz trio during the cocktail hour and then some lively dancing out on the rooftop deck overlooking Manhattan, late into the night. Besides being filled with great food and drink, the room had so much happiness and love at this wedding. Thanks to Bonnie Burke for coming through with her excellent second photographer duties.
Thank you to the lovely Briana and dapper Jeffrey for having me photograph their special day, it was a total pleasure. Now onto the images from this perfect day.
