brooklyn botanical gardens

april 26, 2008

carolyn's mom was visiting new york for the weekend. the cherry blossoms were in bloom and we just couldn't resist those cotton candy clouds of frosty pink.





these guys were also quite stunning.



and i found this happy little guy on my way home...

new york comic con

april 19, 2008

if you've never been to the new york comic con, it's a not-to-be-missed experience. especially for those of you with kids. you can dress up like your favorite superhero or supervillan. it's a day of fantasy and fun. oh, you thought i was still talking about the kids?

i went with patrick mcgoohan... i mean, number 6.





stan lee certainly had a smashing time - check out that smile!



lilly was sad she didn't get to go...

sue + dan

april 5, 2008

sue and dan got married in tribeca at the bikini bar - just down the street from where i spend 90% of my waking hours! i was second shooting for mantas-wright photography. the couple wore leis made from fresh orchids and shipped directly from hawaii. they incorporated their love of surfing and tiki bars, friends and family into all the details of the day. we had a great time!

happy birthday, hoover

april 9, 2008

i took hoover out for a classic - yet casual - new york evening on his birthday. a walk across the brooklyn bridge (during which i forced him to wear a sticker that said 'whoo hoo!' and gave him up to the mercy of the crowds while i took pictures) and dinner at grimaldi's pizzeria.





we met up with jae and jacob after dinner. fun was had by all!

vegas, baby

march 16, 2008

i just got back from a photastic week in las vegas. at brian dorsey studios, we'd spent weeks preparing for the wppi convention. it was my first time in vegas and my first time as part of an intensive photo convention. i met a lot of the faces from the world of new york wedding photography and we ended up winning several awards in the 16x20 competition.

we stayed at bally's - and my room had a view of the bellagio fountains!



we celebrated st. patrick's day in typical irish fasion.



and our last day there, brian and i took a walk down the strip. here are some of my favorites...









thanks, brian!
