I had a hard time choosing favorites from this wedding. Not only were they a stunning couple, but both the light and timing was perfect for all of our outdoor shots. I just had so much fun capturing these images and I think (I hope) it shows in the final product. I loved shooting around Hoboken and I think it offered a great variety of different types of images. Seeing as this wedding was in early June, I think I need to start using less text and more images going forward. I'm hoping maybe I'll blog more regularly if that is the case :)
Anita and Eric hired me while living in Dubai. Long-distance planning doesn't really get any longer than that. Somehow, with the help of her mom, Anita planned a beautiful wedding where every detail came together and she even added a few of her own creative touches. I was so impressed that they pulled this off living so far away. Everything really came together wonderfully.
Joanna and Rob were married at the beautiful Bryant Park Grill. It is one of my favorite venues to work at because of the opportunity to shoot in the park and at the library and because everything always seems to go according to plan. They really know what they are doing there and the food is fantastic. We had a nice window of time to shoot formals before the ceremony so it was nice taking our time around the city and enjoying the afternoon. It was a lovely, laid-back and wonderful day.
May was a gorgeous month of weddings for me, and it also ended practically thirty days ago. I am trying to catch this blog up with all of the beautiful events I photographed last month. My first May wedding was Stephanie and Rob's. They were one of the easiest couples I've ever had the pleasure of working with. Thanks to both of you for trusting us completely all day, it was gorgeous and the pleasure was ours. Georgi and I had such a fun time shooting, it didn't even feel like work. It's always a privilege to work with clients who trust I'm doing my best and allow me to be creative so thank you, thank you!
Sarah went to school with my husband, Jeff, so I was thrilled when she contacted me about shooting her wedding. Plus, isn't she a stunning bride? Sarah was part of a gospel choir at Penn State and she was able to have them perform at her wedding ceremony. It was so moving it made it difficult to work! I had to focus on not getting caught up in the music, they really made you feel so much. It was a beautiful gift that they were able to give Elliott and Sarah and all of their family and friends.
I love April weddings. If I had thought of it myself, I might have planned my wedding around cherry blossom season. They remind me of home. We had two cherry blossom trees in our front yard growing up and they always seemed their proudest right around Mother's Day. The pink flowering trees were always so appropriate for my beautiful mom :) I loved what Sarah did with her centerpieces. The venue just looked gorgeous. Thank you so much to Sarah and Elliott for trusting me to capture such an important day, you make such a beautiful couple!
