In my 15 years of photographing weddings, I’m seen many New York venues. I have such a fondness for Foundry Weddings! I love the juxtaposition of urban and garden at The Foundry. Even in the colder months, the leafy walls surrounding the venue and open air on the terrace offer a feeling of lushness and serenity.
From the Foundry in Long Island City, the guests are looking at the skyline of Manhattan from a good distance. This skyline lends itself to some beautiful backdrops for photos of the bride and groom.
I’m so honored to have been invited to France to photograph Mia and Sean’s Paris wedding. The stylish couple were wed at Le Pavilion Etoile across from the Arc de Triomphe! Mia’s joie de vivre was captured in and around Palais Royal in the premier arrondissement, at Laduree’s patisserie, and on Coco Chanel’s historic mirrored staircase… It was a really beautiful affair, and a great week spent in France!

Here is a beautiful example of a matted Queensberry wedding album in a blueberry genuine leather cover, designed for a very important client. There were two albums made, one for the wedding and another for the rehearsal dinner + Sunday brunch.
Here are a couple of newly made Iris Book wedding albums that I designed for two of my clients with Cypress Albums. They were made in English Linen and in Irish Linen, two incredibly gorgeous fabric selections!

This Spring I had the pleasure of photographing model Stella Maxwell for H&M at her Met Gala dress fitting. The designers created an intricate low cut beaded gown which swayed as Stella walked down the red carpet and nine of my portraits ended up being featured in Teen Vogue!
It was so much fun to shoot Mia + Sean’s super cool New York City Hall wedding in January. How sweet and joyful are these two? Mia + Sean’s unique post-ceremony photo session was set in the cobblestone streets of the meatpacking district near Hotel Gansevoort. The fashionable bride wore a silk flowing gown and a faux fur stole, to complete her wintery classic NYC look. After a chilly and brisk walk outside, the couple warmed up by jumping and cuddling on the bed with their pup.

Welcome Baby Henry! Sweet Henry Nathaniel entered the world in late September 2016, and it’s been quite the ride! He will be turning 6 months old next week, I cannot believe it! Here are a few images I took in the past 6 months, including the first one taken on day 2, in the hospital, wearing the red hat I knit for him. He is also sporting a nifty blue cardigan I made for him last summer, at 9 weeks old while in Montreal. Sadly, he only got to wear it for one day before he outgrew it! XO
I loved Jung and Jereme’s wedding. It was so simple yet so beautiful. I’m especially pleased we made time for wedding portraits on the Highline, across the street from their venue, on this chilly November day.
I also loved that the couple included their puppy in the pictures, both while getting ready at home, and later at the beginning of their reception. How sweet is that?
