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.

New York City Elopement Photographer || An Update

The last of my weddings and portrait sessions have been delivered, all print orders are in the mail, and I haven’t actually picked up my camera in over a month. I guess I am officially on maternity leave now, as we wait for these two little girls to show up. (Which should be sometime in the next four to seven weeks, and hopefully not sooner!)

I want to thank everyone for their emails, comments, texts, and notes over the last couple months. Everyone – friends, family, and clients – has been so supportive and kind, and John and I are so grateful to be surrounded by that kind of love and caring.

Now that I’m on leave, I’m going to focus on getting all my weddings from this year blogged, so keep an eye out for some seriously gorgeous weddings in this space in the coming weeks. I am so happy with the work I did this year, even if my season was cut decidedly short. And as always, you can keep up with my day to day life while I’m on maternity leave via Instagram. I will also continue to contribute to Western Light, a photography project I’ve been working on this year with a bunch of amazing photographers across the Western Hemisphere. I hope you’ll continue to keep up with our project!

Finally, I anticipate coming back to work just in time for next summer’s wedding season, but I don’t want to make any decisions until the girls are here, and I can see how I’m feeling. So I’m not yet taking any bookings for next year, but when I open up my calendar again (most likely early next year), I’ll be sure to let everyone know.

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

This morning I photographed my very last wedding of the year (per doctor’s orders), and I could not have ended the season on a better note. Lauren & Barry traveled from Las Vegas to elope at South Street Seaport at sunrise, and it was just the most perfect morning. Genevieve Dreizen officiated their ceremony just as the sun was rising over the East River behind them. Afterwards we wandered around downtown for portraits and then ended our morning together on The High Line. Lauren & Barry – you two are the best! Thank you so much for everything!

I am Lauren’s Aunt Julie and now Barry’s Aunt Julie! Thank you for such an amazing job and for very obviously putting your whole heart into capturing beautiful moments like this. True art at its best. I am glad this year ended on a good note for your last photo session of the year and I hope that you are feeling well soon.
