I feel like every photographer wants to try shooting with smoke bombs once or twice. So I gave it a whirl on Thanksgiving and it was SUPER fun. I liked the after effects of the smoke dissipating into the trees more than the initial lighting of the little smoke pancake. Tell me what you think!
When my friend Jay called me saying he was getting married I said "You're lying to me. Who? What? This is real? Oh my God! This is REAL!" I have known about the lovely Heather for a while and knew how much Jay adored her. I was beyond excited when he asked me to photograph their elopement. This was my first elopement and damn are they fun! It is such an amazing intimate experience. They wanted a witchy/Salem vibe in their portraits because that is where they were Honeymooning and I think we captured it perfectly! Congrats to Jay and Heather!
The absolute perfect fall woodland backyard wedding. Gabriella and Orlando really did their wedding right. The couple just recently purchased a beautiful wooded home and decided to have their wedding and reception there. The house was mostly bare with no furniture inside but surrounded by warm fall trees and the occasional acorn dropping from above during the ceremony. The love and affection that surrounds Gabriella and Orlando is uncanny; tears of joy and happiness were shed throughout the ceremony and reception. This is an undying love that blossomed in high school and it truly shows. I was stunned by how perfectly simple and gorgeous this wedding was.
I'm a little late to the game with this one but was feeling those cold wintery vibes today and figured I should post this wedding. TJ and Andrew had a beautiful wedding on a snowy day at Canfield Casino in Saratoga Springs filled with wonderful friends, amazing dancers, and a whole lotta love.
Minnesota friends, Brooklyn and Manhattan backdrop... really couldn't get any better for this proposal shoot I did with Christine and Derek. I knew these two way back in high school and even played soccer with Christine back in elementary school. Derek and I had been chatting for months about how he wanted to propose on their trip to NY and have me photograph it for them. I was beyond ecstatic. I have never shot a proposal before and I honestly got tears when Derek bent the knee. The love between these two was so sweet and genuine, a love that was built in high school and continues to grow during their now long distance engagement. That's some strong love ladies and gents. In case it's not obvious, she said YES.
