Thank you Elizabeth Anne Designs for featuring Meghan & Brian’s stunning autumn affair!

About two years ago, I photographed an engagement session at Natirar Park and I remember gazing up at the historic mansion that sat way up high on the hill and I thought to myself how amazing it would be to photograph a wedding there. It must have been destiny because a week later Meghan and Brian reached out to me to see if I was available for their wedding at Natirar Mansion. Stars aligned and the rest was history! Meghan and Brian were married on an unseasonably warm October day on top of the hill which provided the most jaw dropping views of the valley below. After their intimate outdoor ceremony, guests enjoyed champagne, delicious cocktails and passed hor d’oeuvres on the mansion’s back patio. Manouche Bag {a gypsy jazz band} entertained Meghan and Brian’s guests as they took in the beautiful sunset during cocktail hour. As the autumn evening chill began to set in, guests were escorted to the reception tent in order to continue their elegant evening. Meghan chose a sophisticated Nicole Miller wedding dress while Brian wore a fitted Armani suit. Meghan’s bridesmaids looked lovely in their plum colored Bill Levkoff dresses. W Floral Design provided the flowers for the entire day. I absolutely loved the fresh and modern look of the bouquets and reception centerpieces. Meghan and Brian’s wedding day was an extension of them as a couple. Their love for each other, their family and their friends was the focus of their day and I’m so blessed to have been able to capture so many heartfelt moments. I know I say this a lot, but I really, really love my job.

Ely’s from New York & Dan’s from Australia and they met in Antigua. Love is all you need, said Dan at their engagement session and I couldn’t agree more. When it came time for Ely & Dan’s engagement session, the three of us spent the morning in Central Park at the start of October. The perfect morning light, the crisp air and the falling leaves made the session even more romantic for these two autumn lovers. I absolutely loved getting the chance to capture Ely & Dan’s special connection and I can’t wait to capture their big day in the spring!

Thank you Elizabeth Anne Designs for the beautiful feature!

When it came time for Sammi and Dan’s October engagement session they suggested the west village followed by Hudson River Park. Both of these locations are filled with memories for this beautiful couple. One of the best memories they share is when Dan proposed to Sammi in Hudson River Park. I absolutely loved getting the chance to document their love and create new memories in locations that they already hold close to their hearts. Sammi looked stunning in her red Kate Spade dress and black Jimmy Choo pumps while Dan opted for more of a relaxed look in slacks and a button down. When we arrived at the Hudson River Park, Roey Mizrahi of Roey Mizrahi Events, set up a cute little spot for Sammi and Dan to share some champagne. The two of them sipped some bubbly, cuddled up on a blanket and enjoyed spending time walking along the waterfront. I had the best time hanging out with Sammi and Dan & I look forward to photographing their NYC wedding in the spring.

I love that my work allows me to travel places near and far. So when M asked me to photograph her wedding on Shelter Island at her family’s home, I was incredibly excited. Shelter Island is nestled between the North and South forks of Long Island and while it is only a two hour drive {plus a five minute ferry ride} away from Manhattan, you feel as if you’re completely transported to a place far, far away. M & C were married on a lovely September day in the backyard of M’s family home. Guests sipped iced tea and lemonade and enjoyed stunning views of the water while they waited for the ceremony to begin. After their intimate backyard ceremony, guests traveled five miles down the road to the historic Ram’s Head Inn where they were greeted with passed hor d’oeuvres. Twinkle lights hung from the trees which provided a very romantic, warm setting for M & C’s cocktail hour. As the sun began to set everyone made their way to the semi-outdoor reception in order to continue their evening. M looked radiant in her Ulla-Maija lace wedding dress while C looked incredibly dignified in his military dress uniform. Kim Jon Designs provided the florals for the entire day as well as the lighting for the reception. Twinkle lights and votive candles set the mood for an elegant evening. M & C’s wedding was heartfelt and perfect. I’m incredibly honored that they asked me to document their special connection and I truly hope I get the chance to visit Shelter Island again. What a special place to get married.
