Marc and Talia took a trip to New York City from British Columbia, Canada for a photo session with me a few weeks ago. I was honored that they chose me to be their photographer on this crisp winter day before Christmas, especially hearing how Marc had done his research on wedding and engagement photographers in New York City (he threw out a few big names out there so I was humbled I got the gig). I’m happy to say they loved the photos and I was able to deliver the vision they were going for. Marc and Talia were so much fun we just kept shooting and went from the West Village to the subways to downtown Manhattan, ending with a walk on the Brooklyn Bridge. The colors of the day and the enthusiasm of these two made it a pleasure to be their photographer.
If you’re going to ask me where’s a beautiful place to get married in New York City, I have a few recommendations… I’ve had the pleasure to shoot at some awesome spots all over NYC, Long Island, and New Jersey, but a really special location is the NY Botanical Garden, which is an Abigail Krisch property. If the time of year is right and you can have your ceremony outdoors its just such a beautiful backdrop..and the trees and flowers offer some wonderful, vibrant colors.
And from the first photo of Michelle you know I was as happy as Greg was because she looked stunning and so comfortable in front of the camera. Her dress was gorgeous and the weather was perfect for a wedding. Combine these things together with a rowdy, fun group ready to dance (and drink a few shots) and I have some of my best photography to date.. From the silly faces to the endless dancing and laughter it was hard to decide which photos I wanted to post but I think we got some gems here in this beautiful fall wedding…
Oh and a quick funny story. Greg and I share the same last name just randomly, no relation. He had found me online earlier this year when he proposed to Michelle and I took a few photos for a quick proposal/engagement session. I’m honored they came back to me for the photography of their wedding..ok no more talking enjoy the photos!
Where to start with this amazing wedding. Megan was a stunning bride. Her elegance and grace perfectly complimented the spectacular backdrop of the historical Chelsea Mansion in Long Island. The weather for this summer wedding was perfect and everyone had a great time. Megan and James both work for MLB (Major League Baseball) so they went with a theme for the tables with different ball players and the corresponding numbers on their jerseys (cute idea). Some other great shots include the adorable kids, some running around in costumes, capes, and some falling into the pond and having to spend the rest of the evening wrapped in towels! In a touching moment the bride actually delivered her father’s speech because he was too choked up to read it. The evening ended with laughter, dancing, and sparklers.
And what a great compliment that a fellow photographer was the one who referred this wedding to me. Bill Wadman is a phenomenal portrait photographer, so I was honored that he recommend me (check out his site if you have a minute you’ll see what I mean).
The grounds made for a perfect setting for photography, blending my photo journalism with some formal portraits with my hasselblad. I had a wonderful time at this wedding and think we made some very lovely photos together.
Enjoy viewing them!
I met up with Miguel and Andrea on recent late summer afternoon, to photograph their engagement session. From my first shot of them I knew they were going to be awesome in front of the lens, and I was right — we got a ton of cool photos.
We started in the Meat Packing District of NYC at Pastis, and walked around the Highline for a bit then hopped a cab and shot over to the West Village. I wanted to do a few photos on some of those beautiful streets. I shot a bit of film with my Hasselblad to really give some mood to their photos. I love how these photos turned out and can’t wait for their wedding next year….
Also, Rock Paper Scissors events, (a New York City wedding planner) just featured a few of these shots on her lovely looking blog you can check out here. Enjoy the photos!
When getting married in NYC there are so many amazing venues to choose from, but a few special spots that I really like are when couples choose to get wed in one of our beautiful New York City parks. I’ve been lucky enough to photograph weddings around the city at the Central Park Boathouse , Bronx Botanical Garden, and the Brooklyn Botanical Garden.
Lauren and Brad had a beautiful fall wedding at another great choice for a Park Wedding at the Picnic House in Prospect Park and the day was just lovely from start to finish. The ceremony was held at the gorgeous St. Augustine Church in Park Slope, Brooklyn. Check out the massive interior, it was really a sight to see.
Brad looked sharp and Lauren was striking in her beautiful non-traditional wedding dress. Everyone had a great time and really took advantage the cool autumn Brooklyn air while enjoying a game of bocce. There were heartfelt speeches, vintage taxi cabs, and delicious cupcakes. Overall it was a wonderful wedding and I was honored to capture their day.
