When Michael contacted me from CA to photograph his small wedding in Ft. Tyron Park in NY, I jumped at the opportunity. I love photographing these intimate celebrations, and I wasn't expecting the excitement that was to come. The wedding was scheduled for 4 pm - on the day hurricane Sandy was due to show up. That morning, we found out all NY parks were closing at 5, and I received a phone call from the bride at 8:30 am asking if I could be there at 11 am instead of 4 pm. It was a bit crazy, but somehow they pulled it off. The ceremony took place on a hill overlooking the Hudson, and the dinner turned into brunch at the beautiful New Leaf Cafe. The colors in the park were perfect for photographs, and the breeze that was to become Sandy made it all even lovelier. Congratulations Wendy & Michael. Your special day is one many of us will never forget!

I was looking forward to Christine & Dan's wedding since their engagement session. I knew it was going to be a fun day, and I was not disappointed. The couple looked gorgeous, but what really stood out was how happy they are together. Their guests were treated to this infectious happiness all evening. Together, I know this couple will continue to score home runs! Congratulations!

Tricia & Todd were married on a gorgeous summer day at Mayfair Farms. As I photographed the couple, I commented to both about their beautiful eyes. Now, editing the photos, I am struck by the gorgeous brides maid's eyes as well - check them out! So much was pretty about this day - the colors, dresses, Tricia - it goes on & on. As I left, Tricia & Todd paid me the best compliment. They said "don't change what you do. You are so good at it". My reply was "but you haven't seen the pictures yet!" Thank you Tricia & Todd, for your confidence, and for allowing me to capture your special day.

Candace & David had a perfect wedding day at the Green Brook Country Club. It seems like so long ago that I photographed them for their engagement session - I was excited that the wedding was finally here! I was also very excited to see hot pink dresses on the girls - so pretty! Candace stole the show, as she should, with her beautiful eyes & gorgeous gown. Congratulations to the happy couple!

I met Christine & Dan at Lambert Castle for what I assumed would be a typical engagement portrait but they surprised me with the uniforms and their story of how they met on the softball field and play for the same team. I couldn't get a straight answer when I asked who was the better player, but I sure had fun trying! These two are so cute! I am looking forward to their upcoming wedding.

Janine and Ben tied the knot on a beautiful February day at St. Anthony's Church in Hawthorne. The bride was picture perfect in a gorgeous dress and Ben was a very proud groom! The party continued at the Valley Regency where the guests danced late into the night and were treated with a special visit from a troupe of Portuguese dancers. Many thanks to Janine & Ben for choosing me to photograph their special day! It was my pleasure to spend the day with you and to get to meet your families.
