City Hall Elopement || Wendy & Matt || NYC

Wendy & Matt are just plain awesome. Today was so fun and joyful, and I was absolutely thrilled to be a part of their wedding. These two traveled from Australia to elope at City Hall, and they could not have had a more beautiful day. Here is a small sneak peek, with much more to come. Wendy & Matt, thank you for keeping me laughing all day and making my job such a breeze. Happy honeymooning!!

Brooklyn Elopement Photography || Jessica & Alex || DUMBO

Today I photographed my first elopement since last summer, and it was absolutely perfect. It felt so good to be behind the camera again after my very long maternity leave. Jessica & Alex traveled from Chicago to elope at City Hall, and I am so thrilled that they were my very first couple of the season. MUCH more to come from this one, but here’s a small sneak peek. Jessica & Alex – you two are THE BEST. Thank you for being so wonderful! Congratulations!

Lovely. I love the black and white photo. Congrats to the beautiful couple.

Sunrise Elopement || Lauren & Barry || South Street Seaport

Lauren & Barry’s sunrise elopement was the last wedding I photographed before starting my maternity leave last August, and I could not have ended my 2014 season on a better note. They were married at South Street Seaport, with the always wonderful Genevieve Dreizen as their officiant. I loved these two immediately – they were quick to laugh and full of joy, making my job incredibly easy.

After the ceremony, we headed off to The High Line. I love the High Line early in the morning when it’s quiet and empty. The light was beyond perfect, and I was so happy with everything I captured. Lauren & Barry – thank you for being so wonderful in every way!

I’m Still Here

Oh, hello. Remember me? I’m still here. Sort of. Well, I’m dipping my toes in the water, at any rate.

Shortly after my most recent blog post, my kids starting transforming from little blobs who just slept and ate into… well… people, with personalities and desires for things other than just milk. They started moving and grooving and rolling around. And now they’re a few days shy of six months old, starting solids, laughing and chattering away, and oh man, do I love them. (And – surprise, surprise – they are extremely time consuming.) At any rate, my ambitions of keeping up a steady rate of blogging throughout my maternity leave were crushed, but I can’t say I’m too upset about it.

Friday I’m shooting the first of a handful of weddings this year. And I do mean only a handful. Turns out I like hanging out with my kids A LOT, so I’m only coming back to work on a very, very, very part-time basis for the time being. I also realized in the chaos, I never got to blog the last wedding I shot before maternity leave, so look out for that tomorrow.

It recently occurred to me that this is my fifth year blogging in this space. Over the years my posts have gotten increasingly less personal, and the last two years have been mostly wedding and travel related. While I don’t intend to blog about my kids/family, I do miss writing in this space, so I’d like to open it up again. I’ve been shooting a ton of personal film work lately, and I’d especially like to give that a home here. So, we’ll see what happens.

I hope you’re all having a beautiful spring. The flowers are finally blooming here in NYC.

I don’t like to share very many photos of the girls publicly – there’s a private Instagram for that if you’re a real life friend/family member – but the last photo I shared of them was just after they were born. This is what I’ve been working on for the last six months…
