A Very Brooklyn Wedding at the Green Building // Steph & Ben

In three weeks 2013 will be a memory. One more year completed. One year wiser, better, smarter, and perhaps even happier. There’s so much about this past year I want to reflect on— the friends I’ve made, the milestones I’ve hit, the places I’ve gone, the lessons I’ve learned, and hardships I’ve overcome.  Elaborating on that would simply take more words than I have the will to write right now so I’ll just say this— I’m happy with this year if onlyView full post »

Stop Motion Wedding Photography ~ A Marriage of Moving and Still Images

It’s often said, “It’s wasteful not to use the whole thing”. Taking this fully to heart I’ve decided to do something a little different with this wedding. I used every frame I shot, well… almost. I did the math, I used 94.7% of the images shot on Dan and Eric’s wedding day. Below you’ll see why but first (if you care to know) allow me to digress from Eric and Dan for a moment, and talk about the how and the why I’m trying something a little different for a change.

A Wedding in Carmel and a Work of Art // Jake and Erica

It’s been a busy summer, actually it’s been the busiest summer yet for this little wedding photography business of mine— no I’m not complaining one little bit. In fact, I have so much gratitude for my life. I love where I live, I love the people in my life, and best of all I love what I get to do with my life. I get to tell real stories. I get to meet new people all the time. I get to make my own choices, be my own boss, and wake-up when I want to. Well… when I don’tView full post »

Connecticut Wedding Photographer // Brian and Faith Sailboat Wedding

Three years ago I spent a weekend in Mystic Connecticut with Brian + Faith and a few other friends. It was just the first of many weekends to come–we now get together every summer for, what is now known as, “Walshfest”.  In the past 3 years Walshfest has grown from 6 people to 30 people and we’ve gone from doing our own cooking to hiring a caterer, throwing into a Walshfest fund, and pitching tents on Brian’s brother’s lawn (because we can’t all fitView full post »

Brooklyn Baby Photographer

For the longest time the only kids I ever photographed were my siblings’ kids. My niece and nephews have basically had a camera shoved in their face since they entered this world. So much so that when I was going to Art Center I made my infant nephew Liam the subject of numerous portrait assignments. One such assignment resulted in a four foot tall portrait of the little guy in the school’s gallery for an entire semester. I guess that means I owe my brother + sister-in-law a bigView full post »

Lifestyle Family Portraits at the Brooklyn Farmacy

Is it wrong that I want a little girl just like Aven so I can dress her up in cute clothes, take photos of her all the time, and take her on ice cream outings? Don’t even talk to me about childcare and staying home on Friday nights, [fingers in ears - la la la la] or… wait— are there even any other sacrifices that go with having a kid this awesome? [Thinking... no?]  Joking aside, Brooke, my good friend and mom behind this little cutie, blows my mind. She’s a badass photographer,View full post »

Williamsburg wedding photographer

A Wedding at Juliette Williamsburg // Lindsey and Chris

I shot this not more than a mile from home. I love where I live because of the people who live there. People are what makes Williamsburg and Greenpoint two of the very best ‘hoods in all of NYC Totally my opinion, but really— it’s true ;) Meet one such example of this awesomeness— Lindsey and Chris.  Chris bakes pies. A lot of pies. So for their wedding dessert (instead of cake) they invited their guests to participate in a pie baking contest at their wedding. How did it work?View full post »

I am so honored to have been a part of it. You can also check out the awesome post over at Style Me Pretty, where you can view an entire gallery of imagesView full post »

New York City Elopement // Jessica and DJ

Lately it seems I’ve been shooting more and more elopements in New York City  and you won’t catch me complaining about it one bit. My favorite part of shooting an elopement style wedding, is that it’s almost always an adventure, at least that seems to be the case in NYC. What I mean is, typically the couple and I know where we’re starting and we know where we are ending, (i.e. where ever dinner reservations are), but everything in-between is pretty much decided no moreView full post »
