Maternity Leave

THIS IS A PINNED POST. PLEASE SCROLL DOWN TO SEE MORE RECENT BLOG POSTS. THANK YOU. 

This is just a reminder that I am currently on maternity leave and not responding to emails/inquiries at this time. I will begin responding to inquiries again in January, and will most likely start shooting elopements again in June 2015. (Although that date is subject to change.) I will be keeping the blog updated as I can, but am unable to respond to specific requests/emails/inquiries until after the new year. Thanks for your patience while I bond with my two newest and most important photography subjects – my twin baby girls!

West Village Elopement || Louise & Dan || NYC

I photographed Louise & Dan’s elopement back in April, and it was such a favorite of mine this year, mostly because of how wonderful these two and their families were to work with! They traveled from the UK with each set of parents, and I met them at The Benjamin for getting ready photographs and a sweet first look on their beautiful hotel terrace.

After a few quick portraits we were off to City Hall, but when we arrived we hit a bit of a snag – they had mistakenly grabbed their parents’ passports as we were walking out the door, not theirs. With City Hall closing in just a few minutes, there was no time to go back for them. Luckily, my favorite mustachioed officiant came to the rescue! Papers were signed, signatures were matched up, and he kindly waved us in and allowed my couple to be married despite the missing passports. We all breathed a great sigh of relief and were luckily able to laugh about it. After the ceremony, we headed up to the West Village and Washington Square Park for portraits, and then ended our day together with some well deserved cupcakes!

NYC Elopement || Moyra & Stuart || City Hall

Moyra & Stuart traveled from Scotland for their NYC elopement. I met them at The Jade Hotel in Greenwich Village back in April, where they were getting ready together. I LOVE it when couples get ready together. I’m always able to capture such sweet moments full of anticipation. Once these two were ready, we headed off to City Hall.

It was a gorgeous spring day with incredible light. A friend of theirs met us at City Hall to act as witness, and after their ceremony, we were off to the East Village for portraits. Moyra & Stuart were so much fun to work with, and I love what we captured together!

New York City High Line Elopement || Rebecca & Andrew || Manhattan

I photographed Rebecca & Andrew’s elopement in early April. They traveled to New York from Australia, and I met them at an apartment they rented for their stay in the city. It was a gray and rainy day, but the weather definitely couldn’t dampen Rebecca & Andrew’s spirits. They were so excited to get married.

After they finished getting ready, we headed off to the Meatpacking District for some portraits before making our way to the High Line for their ceremony. By the time their ceremony ended the rain was really coming down, but these two were total troopers. We pretty much had the High Line to ourselves, and despite the pouring rain, we captured some beautiful portraits together.

I just loved everything about this one – the moody weather, Rebecca’s gorgeous pink dress, and especially Rebecca & Andrew themselves who could not have been more wonderful to work with!

East Village Elopement || Carly & William || NYC

I photographed Carly & William’s City Hall elopement on a blustery day back in March. They traveled to NYC from Scotland, and we had such a wonderful time together. I was so excited to finally have the opportunity to photograph a groom in a kilt!

I met them for some getting ready photographs at the TRYP Hotel, and then we hopped in a cab and headed to City Hall. March is a quiet time of year for weddings, so we didn’t have to wait long, and pretty soon these two were officially married! Afterwards, we headed off on the subway to the Lower East Side and East Village for portraits, and I love what we captured. The grittiness of those neighborhoods contrasted with their wedding attire made for one very happy photographer.
