Quick shot from Saturday in Montauk with Liz and Andrew...
For Alison and Aaron until I get to the full post... I had so much fun today, thanks for sharing Stony Brook with me and making my job so easy!!
Last night we celebrated my fiance, Jeff's, birthday at Sushi Yasuda in midtown. I have gotten out of the habit of taking a camera with me when we go places but Jeff has been encouraging me to take more pictures for myself not just for work so I took a camera last night and I'm glad to have these pictures of him on his birthday.
I am a self-declared sushi novice so I was a little nervous about going to such a great sushi place and ordering regular old rolls not to mention insulting the chef. I decided to try a few pieces of sushi and to my surprise, I really enjoyed them (phew!).
I had spent most of the morning trying to bake a 7 layer cake. Jeff has been asking for a 7 layer cake since he was little (so the story goes). I thought he would be really surprised if I actually pulled it off. I didn't even own cake pans so I knew this may prove a bit difficult but for some reason I was confident I could pull it off.
The 7 layer cake turned into a one and a half layer cake after the first 2 layers essentially crumbled out of the pans but look how happy he was! I think he just thought it was ridiculous that I even tried. Oh well, maybe next year. Happy Birthday, Jeff!!
The last wedding I shot was Jen and Sean's. Their reception was held at the Hotel du Pont and they were married at a beautiful Presbyterian church right across the street. My favorite part of the day was going to Gibraltar Gardens. The gardens were so picturesque and I had been wanting to shoot there for such a long time. Actually, every time I drove by them I had been wondering what was behind the huge walls which line the gardens keeping them a secret! They completely lived up to my expectations.
The rest of the wedding was beautiful as you can see. The girls looked so formal yet classic with their black dresses and the beautiful pop of pink (courtesy of Flowers by Yukie). Of course the guys were also looking good in black as usual.
The party went into the evening and they had quite the dancing crowd which always makes for a fun time shooting. Thanks to Mike for shooting with me. The image of the girls waiting in the back of the church is his :)
And finally, my two favorites from the first dance.
I met Rebeca and David this past Saturday at the Brooklyn Bridge. It was my first weekend in a while without a wedding so we were lucky to fit this shoot in on a summer Saturday! We started off on the bridge and then walked into Brooklyn Heights. I hadn't been there before and it turned out to be a beautiful neighborhood with some great shooting spots. Rebeca and David had their first "proper" date in Brooklyn Heights so it made sense to shoot there. There wedding is right around the corner in October so you'll see more of them soon!
We thought we were done shooting and then we stumbled upon Love Lane.
