Wedding

Ayasha and Adrian - Manhattan City Hall Wedding

Adrian and Ayasha's wedding in Lower Manhattan's City Hall is what wedding photography is all about. I loved capturing their happiness, nervousness, and the pure excitement of watching this couple get married. There were no big catering halls, cakes, and complicated dresses to cloud the focus of the day.

Throughout the day I was always capturing both the little and big moments as they happened. I also directed some shots when appropriate.

Kayla + Matt - Gatsby On The Ocean Wedding

Perfect. September 7th, 2019 was a perfect day for Kayla and Matty’s wedding with cool temperatures, a nice ocean breeze, and good spirits all around. Long Island’s newest wedding and event space, Gatsby on the Ocean at Jones Beach made the perfect backdrop to their wedding day.

Venue: Gatsby on the Ocean

City Hall Wedding - Katia + Joe

I love photographing simple weddings and a New York City Hall wedding is my definition of “simple wedding.” Katia and Joe made the jump on Friday August 23, 2019 in downtown Manhattan at City Hall. Post ceremony, we met for family photos and a private couples’ session in Lower Manhattan. Our shoot incorporated the hustle and bustle of the big city, and the contrasting calmness of it’s parks. This was definitely a nice break from the country club and catering hall weddings I often photograph.

Lisa + Ralph Long Island Backyard Wedding

“Simple. We’re really simple and we’re an easy going couple, Jonathan. We don’t want flashy! We’re going to have BBQ, so please eat, and our friend’s band will play. It’ll be fun!”, is exactly what Lisa told me over the phone back in February. Post wedding, I 100% agree.

Any wedding with dogs is a GREAT wedding in my book!

Location: Mt. Sinai, NY - Lisa and Ralph’s Backyard

Laura + Andrew's Brooklyn Wedding

Congratulations Laura and Andrew! Photographing your wedding day, your friends, and your families was amazing. Your wedding day is one of my favorites for so many different reasons. The main reason, I love Brooklyn, is Monika used to live there. Brooklyn is where we spent the past several years exploring and discovering all the things (Prospect Park, the food, the brownstones…) that make it so great. It made me miss Brooklyn a lot.

Laura and Andrew also love Brooklyn. It’s where their relationship too blossomed, it’s the place they both call home, and it’s where they will live together with Laura’s two boys.

When I first met Andrew and Laura they explained their wedding day was going to be super simple. They didn’t want a big production. This was not going to be a 12 hour day with getting ready, bridesmaids and groomsmen galore, and schedules. They were right. It was super simple and relaxing (for everyone!).

The wedding was at the Brooklyn Society For Ethical Culture in Park Slope right across from Prospect Park. Andrew and Laura found the space just by walking by and they chose the venue because it’s an empty canvas. You can make it what you want. Meaning you have to bring in your own food, caterer / event planner, and music. Of course, they made it a very Brooklyn wedding and they made it very them.

There was an awesome Blue Grass band, Citigrass, playing the whole afternoon and evening. For cocktail hour and dinner there was Dinosaur Barbecue. And lastly, for dessert there was Brooklyn’s very own and tasty Ample Hills Creamery.

Mark + Robyn Ketubah Signing

Venue: Kimpton Hotel Eventi

One hot summer Friday evening in July I met Robyn and Mark in their beautiful hotel room at the Eventi Hotel in Midtown Manhattan. Robyn and Mark, with family at their sides were busy getting ready. They were about to start their wedding weekend by signing a very important license signifying their marriage through Jewish law and tradition.
