happy earth day!

I wanted to take a minute out of my day to say Happy Earth Day to everyone! While I am still new to the world of gardening, composting, and in general getting my hands dirty creating a sustainable backyard (and even having a backyard in general!), I have always cared about the environment and do everything in my power to preserve it. After all, we would be nothing without nature and all its glory. We have to take care of it! I even consider myself a "green photographer" and you can find out more about what I mean by that in the my story section of my website.

As the sun has begun to shine in a more consistent manner over that past few days, life in Spring has truly started for my family. My son has officially become obsessed with being outside and as soon as the sliding door opens, he is ready to bolt. I can't blame him after a snowy winter of being stuck inside and of course becoming a walker outside where there is an oasis of dirt, ants, and rocks to explore, who wouldn't want to be hanging outside most of the day? So let's all follow suit, and spend quality time with nature today!

Cheers to the Earth!

launch of new website

It has been such a long time coming so I am very pleased to announce that I have finally launched my new website photography website! As my wedding season begins in about 9 days and as I finish up with all of my weddings of last year, I figured it was a good time to finally get the site out there. I have been working on it very slowly for months and while there are still quite a few tweaks to work out and SO MANY more wedding + portraits collections to add to it, I am very pleased with it as of right now....meaning as pleased as a busy wedding photographer meets editor meets video editor meets e-commerce home decor co-owner meets busy busy mom of one busy boy COULD EVER BE!

Also while I plug away at preparing for a brand new year here filled with camera gear repairs, new equipment to explore and upcoming beautiful weddings to eagerly await, I was happy to recently be featured on Buzzfeed's grouping of non-traditional wedding themes. Love it and loved the summer camp wedding that my featured photo came from of course!

making your own wedding bouquet

I am a huge fan of handmade elements of a wedding and I have had the pleasure of photographing many of these at weddings I have been in the role of capturing. This last Fall I photographed Tricia + Ariel's amazing Berkshires Massachusetts wedding and when she told me that she put together the flower bouquets, I thought she was kidding. They were gorgeous, straight out of a magazine. Pinks, purples + blues with complimentary baby's breath buds and wrapped with simple ribbon, hers with an accent of lace. I have enjoyed reflecting on their wedding while editing the photographs and thought I'd share some pretties where a bride makes her handmade diy bouquet look more than effortless!

brooklyn/long island ny wedding of christina + george

I had been long awaiting Christina and George's January wedding since I had first FaceTimed with her when I was very pregnant. I felt like I had known her my whole life and I just loved her personality -- so bubbly, friendly, and kind. She told me how her mom would be walking her down the aisle and as I had the same experience and had yet to work with a bride who had wanted to do that, I felt so incredibly connected to their plans! When I finally met them a few months later at the venue (and got to meet George for the first time), I just knew these two were special and that their wedding would be too. So incredibly happy and just downright fun to be around, they infused so much of their personalities into their day and it was no surprise that their wedding was such a blast! Not all couples can pull off a winter-time January celebration, but they did it so well, even with the first half being in Brooklyn and the second half being in Long Island. I loved it all -- how they got ready right across the street from each other (her in her grandmother's apartment and he in their own) but didn't see each other no matter how tempting, the ceremony at the church right around the corner, and the reception where they had a guitarist play their first dance song (rather than the DJ). It was all so beautifully planned and so much fun to be a part of and as they shared so much appreciation for us throughout the day, my team and I felt so honored to be working with such an amazing pair! 

Such a big congratulations to Christina + George & be on the look-out for their video trailer coming very soon!!
