Fall wedding at Jasna Polana

A Fall Wedding at Jasna Polana Can anyone else quickly read a couple’s dynamic just by watching them interact? When I first met Alison and Mike, I got the feeling that they had grown up together and felt so relaxed and comfortable in each other’s company. I couldn’t imagine them apart. Besides ending our engagement […]

A Wedding Day Hunt It may not be customary for the bride and groom to see each other on the morning of their wedding, but I don’t know if a fox hunt is customary before the wedding either! However, seeing as Bart is the huntsman of the Essex Fox Hounds, how could they not?! I […]

Stacy, Fil & Roo say “I do” Before their adorable puppy Roo became the third wheel, Fil and Stacy’s history began circa late 90s when the only social media available required you to be anchored to a computer: AIM. So, naturally, this is how they exchanged information while at a middle school basketball game. This […]

A Proposal at the Met I’ve had the privilege of following Marybeth and Chris’ engagement longer than they’ve even been engaged, and their proposal story was epic. Marybeth’s cousin is my good friend, Kelly Joyce, so naturally I knew about the proposal even before it occurred. Kelly was parked in the Metropolitan Museum of Art […]

A Summer Wedding at Fiddler’s Elbow Sometimes we don’t get a chance to do an engagement session, whether it’s because of lack of time or distance. I think Rebecca and David fell into both of those categories, but I was so thrilled that we at least got to meet over coffee in the spring. I […]

A Summer Wedding at Natirar How often do you get to work with your friends? I work with mine every day. I’m not just talking about my photo friends (who are amazing!), but also my brides! I am so fortunate to have incredible brides who share so much of their wedding process with me, and […]

Sweet Summertime Wedding I often think to myself, why don’t I write my blog posts the day after the wedding? I have such a great memory of the events as soon as I start uploading the images, and then even a week later they start to fade. That’s when I start writing, forget, revisit the […]

Cara & Adam Life in the West Village I’m not big on vacations, as my husband can attest to, but I do love mixing “business with pleasure.” So, a weekend in the city with James, AND a whole bunch of NYC sessions was right up my alley! We started Saturday morning with Cara and Adam’s […]

summer wedding at natirar mansion

A Great Way to Start Memorial Day Weekend I met Nicki and Jason for the first time at their engagement session at this very spot on the hill behind the Natirar mansion last fall. I was so excited to meet them and they were such an enthusiastic couple, I knew their wedding day would be […]

A Wedding in May I arrived at Sam’s house as the girl’s were getting ready, met her amazing bridesmaids and got settled into the group before heading onto the party bus to Natirar. The girls were in their matching gray robes and relaxing with some White Claw spiked seltzer (the official beach drink, in my […]
