“Maybe New York’s just too big a town. There’s millions of people in this city. How in all this mess is a guy supposed to find the love of his life?”  -Ted Mosby in How I Met Your Mother

Take it from the fictional character who spent 9 years looking for love: it is hard to meet people in this crazy city.  That is why it is such a beautiful thing when two people do find love here, like Jim and Adrianna.  This sweet couple’s lovely winter wedding was the stuff that New York brides’ dreams are made of.  That is probably because the Bowery Hotel is the picture of vintage New York elegance, not to mention the dream of every New York wedding photographer to shoot in.   The brick walls and gorgeous grille windows together with rounded doors and iron sconces give this gorgeous hotel a unique sort of industrial elegance.   Adrianna and Jim were the picture of elegance at this lovely black tie wedding.  When Adrianna slipped into her dramatic Ines de Santos mermaid wedding gown, the whole room was speechless.   Dripping candelabras and all white flowers by Adore Floral covering the long tables created a warm, cozy, inviting atmosphere for this romantic New York winter wedding.  I felt so honored to have been present to capture every moment of this gorgeous affair.

Kate and Scott Engaged | New York Engagement Photographer

Kate and Scott are finally tying the knot in Greenwich, CT in just a few weeks!  I’m so excited to be photographing their big day.  This is a little teaser from their engagement session last year.  I just love this film image of them snuggling in front of the NYC waterline while the sun sets over the Hudson river behind them.

Sigh.  Film just has a way of making me fall in love with photography all over again.  Kind of like this sweet couple makes me fall in love with love all over again!  When Sharon and Rohit booked their late March central park engagement session with me last fall, I’m sure she didn’t expect the temperatures to be below freezing and the grass to still be brown- but they were brave little subjects and we were able to get some beautiful images.  Because despite the frigid temperatures, the sun came out that day for the first time in a week and made for some lovely film images.  I’m now shooting all outdoor engagement sessions in 100% film and it’s been so much fun!

Favorite Things Fridays | My Prospective Client Information Kit

My single piece of advice to wedding photographers whenever they are pursuing a branding project is: hire a professional to do all your design.  They can help you take whatever vision you might have to the next level.

When I approached my friend Sofia Whiddon, an excellent graphic design artist, to design me an information kit for prospective clients,  my goal was a simple folder with a custom designed contract, info-sheet and price list.  I also wanted to include a fun little gift of four postcards, each showcasing a portrait of a wedding or engagement image in every season.  Sofia, who I can always count on to be creative, unique and attentive to detail, took my ideas to the next level.  To each postcard she gave unique little details.  The pattern on the back of each postcard is inspired by different fabrics (to fit the season captured in the picture) and instead of just adding a simple box to indicate where the stamp and logo should go she even created the illusion of the fabric fraying away.  Sofia even managed to make the contract look fun with tabs and unique folding.   I love her new design for my business cards as well- the torn paper is such a subtle representation of the natural, timeless, romantic vibe I want to showcase in my brand.  I’m so grateful for Sofia for making my dreams come to life more beautifully than I could have imagined!
