joy + michael

i don't know if i already mentioned how adorable joy and michael are... it's hard to be around the two of them together without smiling. how lucky they are to have found each other - and to have made it work!

i met them at city hall and snapped some shots of their quick ceremony:




so happy to be married!



then we took a stroll around the neighborhood, stopping to play wherever we felt so inclined. here, for your enjoyment, are some of the shots we ended up with:


my favorite:




look familiar? i adore this storefront.








these two kind of belong in a magazine, don't you think?


mustache kisses!




what a fantastic shoot! thank you, joy and michael, for sharing your love with me. i can't wait for the wedding day!

joy + michael - preview

joy and michael got married at city hall today!!

it was the first time i'd been there to shoot and i must say, it was madness. the place was full of energy, and EVERYONE (at least everyone I saw) was smiling and happy. what a great way to start my day!

it was really strange to see everyone lined up and waiting for their names to be called, waiting to get into one of these two tiny rooms and get married. the place is a long hallway full of beautiful chandeliers and warm light, couches and computer terminals (where you sign in and/or register for a license, i guess). it's an experience!

after the quick ceremony, joy and michael and i ran around tribeca to take some pictures. it was FREEZING, but they were good sports. here's a sneak peek.... more to come :)
