cindy + john: the wedding

several of my friends were guests at cindy and john's wedding. one of my best girlfriends was a bridesmaid. it's really amazing how the more comfortable you are, the better the photography is going to be. i think it takes some of the pressure and stress out of the job and allows you to really just have fun with it. it's really important to get to know the people you're working with!









i really liked this image when i took it. when my beau pointed out to me that the trees behind them make a heart with their linked hands, i liked it even more. do you see it? cool stuff.




one of my favorite images ever...




fonthill castle in doylestown, pa was a really amazing location. how often do you have a castle as a backdrop? it had been raining all weekend until the morning of the wedding - and it held off until half way through the reception. perfect timing, allowing for some perfect pictures!

joy + michael: the wedding

joy and michael's wedding day was PHOTOLICIOUS! it was truly a lot of fun; and they are an adorable and incredibly kind couple.

joy and michael were married at smack mellon, an art gallery in brooklyn. both joy and michael are very creative and put together most of the wedding details themselves, from the dried lavender and cotton branches to napkins with random typewritten facts about the couple. homemade cookies made by the bride and her bridesmaids served as guest favors. michael shared a surprise slideshow of images he had taken around new york of various friends, family members and strangers wishing the couple good luck on whiteboard speech bubbles. joy’s dad is an alaskan fisherman (featured on discovery’s deadliest catch) and provided crab he had caught himself for the reception. he also wrote and performed an original song on the harmonica for the couple.

with their creativity and ours combined, we created some really beautiful images.

we started out at gramercy park hotel.





and then took a cab over to smack melon.





this has to be one of my favorite venues - if only because the surrounding neighborhood is so fantastic for cityscape portraits:











the space is flooded with light from windows looking out on the east river and manhattan bridge.





lindsay thorne shot with me. here are a few of her spectacular images:
