Because you are more photogenic than you think! The No. 1 concern of my brides and grooms when I first discuss their wedding photography with them:“We’re not photogenic”It’s not a thing. If it were a thing, I would tell you my husband is the King of “not photogenic.”God has a sense of humor.Not photogenic = […]

Romance In Full Bloom At This Classic Chinoiserie-Inspired Wedding Margaux & Will’s wedding was a real celebration of getting all of their family and friends together in one location. This may sound like every other wedding, only this group of people is from every corner of the world. Most of these people had never even […]

Victoria and Neil are high school sweethearts, and last week they tied the knot! When I arrived at the Park Chateau, there was an enlarged photo from their prom, and next to it, a more recent photograph from their engagement session! Now, they need to add their wedding photo to this triptych to complete their […]

New Year’s Eve Wedding at Natirar Typically my New Year’s Eve consists of my little family asleep on the couch (and floor). That leaves me to toast myself at the start of the new year. We’re not what you call “party animals,” although sometimes my kids are in fact just animals. I digress. So, when […]

Scenic Views and Comfort Foods The art of wedding planning, because that’s really what it is, shouldn’t be vague. Every wedding is different, because the two people you’re celebrating are unique! Their wedding details and every other component should be unique as well, and Ali and Josh definitely added their personal taste (pun intended) to […]

From day trips to West Point to weeklong trips to the Adirondacks, I have such fond memories of the New York State Thruway. […]

Ali & Brad’s Greek Wedding I’ve been looking forward to this wedding all year! Ali and Brad’s wedding was my first Greek Orthodox wedding, so we decided from the start, that I would attend their rehearsal the night before so I could watch them go through the motions and learn about this beautiful ceremony! There […]

Going to the Chapel I’ve been spending a lot of editing hours watching wedding movies in the background, and love seeing what Hollywood assumes a wedding should look like. It’s always different (and always missing photographers), but aside from no photographer, they’re much like every wedding I get to photograph! No two weddings are the […]

There are just some brides that you get to know really well, so that by the time the wedding day comes around, you’re already friends. That’s how I would describe my relationship with Cara. Leading up to the wedding day, there were several emails, texts, direct messages, etc. and I absolutely loved it! I first […]

Love, Light & Laughter filled Wedding Day I met Alison and Jonathan for the first time only a few short weeks ago! I knew I loved them from the moment I recommended a sunrise engagement session for the amazing light, and they said yes without any hesitation! Not only did they arrive cheerfully on that […]
