The Green Building | Brooklyn WeddingJuly 30, 2014

posted in Engagements, Published, Weddings


It’s been quite the year here in Brooklyn.  Each month I love learning the ins + outs of this unique + artisan cove of New York.  What I’ve learned is that Brooklynites like all things artisan + all things local!  I got together with a lovely team of Brooklyn Wedding Vendors + we created the ultimate Brooklyn Wedding at The Green Building right around the corner.  Ara from Rock Paper Scissor Events made what was in my mind a reality + so much better than I could have hoped for!  (Ara…you’re amazing!)  You can see the whole post today on Style Me Pretty.



It was so fun to have newly engaged fashion blogger, Brynn Watkins, as our bride for the day!  And how amazing does she look in her gowns from Gabriella Bridal Salon?


Linsey from FaceTime Beauty rocked it on the Hair + Make-up!  Ow ow!





Brooklyn Caterer Loren of Naturally Delicious made the most yummy local summer cuisine…MY MOUTH IS STILL WATERING! (And I may have nibbled on the yumminess in-between shots:)


Swiss Cottage Designs created lovely + simple invites.  Swoon.

The Room on Main Wedding | Aaron + BiancaJune 18, 2014

posted in Weddings

My heart is full as I look over the moments from Bianca + Aaron’s wedding.  They met their freshman year of high school and nearly 10 years later they are like two giddy school kids around each other.  Their love is infectious; it’s contagious; it’s special.  I am honored to have been apart of this day!

Soho Lifestyle | David + MeganMay 20, 2014

posted in Engagements, Lifestyle


Love is epic, adventurous, unabashed, messy, loyal, breathtaking…life changing.

Sometimes you cross paths with people that have this sort of love; it hits you like a weight and then lightly lifts you off the ground.  This sort of love is contagious.

Meet David and Megan.  They have this love.  This love that changes things, creates, inspires.  I’m better for having crossed paths with them, and so grateful to have photographed their unique journey:)

Style Me Pretty Feature | The Highline Hotel Radiant Orchid WeddingMay 8, 2014

posted in Fashion, Published, Weddings


Last December when my sweet from Emily + her husband Aaron were visiting from San Fran they stayed at this old seminary turned hotel in Chelsea.  I was instantly intrigued, and upon exploring the space with Em + taking our Christmas card pics there for our fashion blog I knew without a doubt that The Highline Hotel was a space I wanted to create in.  Fast forward a month and I began thinking of ways to mix my two passions:  fashion + wedding photography.  What better way to do both than incorporate Pantone’s Color of the Year:  Radiant Orchid?

For the fashion forward bride who wants to incorporate pieces of Radiant Orchid my suggestion:  stay with classic silhouettes and add pops of color in your details.  From jewelry to nail polish to bouquets, to lavender mimosas there are a 1,000 different ways to incorporate orchid into your wedding.  If you’re feeling a bit adventurous go bold like our bride + bridesmaids did!

This shoot took a village + I am beyond humbled and grateful at the amazingly creative + talented ladies that came together to make this shoot happen.  Thank you for helping to make this vision a reality + 100 times better than I could have ever hoped for!  If you don’t know these fabulous people, get to know them!  And brides if you’re still looking for NYC vendors…these are your gals!

Be sure + check out Style Me Pretty today for the full feature on this shoot!

West Village Engagements | Neil + StefanieApril 30, 2014

posted in Engagements, Lifestyle


Neil + Stefanie’s love story is one of epic proportions.

Living oceans apart literally (Neil is from South Africa + Stef from Southern California) their worlds collided 8 years ago when Neil was visiting some friends in the states.  Both developed little crushes on the other, but with little time + lots of distance they parted and went about their lives.  Fast forward some time, and Stefanie moved to Uganda (yes this woman is beautiful + she’s a world changer) to do development work, and on a trip to South Africa wouldn’t you know that her and Neil’s paths crossed again, and this time the spark turned to dating.  After just a few weeks Stef headed back to Uganda, then back to the states.  They tried and tried to make it work, but it seems the timing was just off.  So even though they both cared for each other deeply, they stepped away from their relationship.

BUT…and don’t you love buts in stories?  I sure do.

But then, time went by, Stefanie and Neil both pursuing different worlds and different dreams. Stef’s led her to none other than New York City where she moved in with some dear friends of Neil’s.  (Coincidence…I don’t believe in those).  And they just so happened to be Team Neil if you know what I mean.

This time, years later, even though an ocean still separated them, Neil was all in and began pursuing Stefanie from South Africa.  He flew out for the holidays, and I think it’s safe to say that within the first few days both of them knew this was it.

Time can be our greatest ally; it develops our souls, our dreams, our purpose…

A few weeks ago, Neil flew to the states, picked up Stefanie on a layover in NYC, and they both went to her home state of California.  Neil pulled off an amazing proposal at sunset in Laguna Beach (I mean really…this guy) complete with a celebration with her family and closest friends, and then back to NYC to celebrate coast to coast.

And so it begins…or shall I say their journey continues.

Just hours before Neil left the states to head back to South Africa I was honored to photograph their engagements in West Village + on The Highline.  I sort of really love these two, and am so excited to share these images with y’all!
