I’m keeping warm in my studio today by blogging some of my favorite weddings of the summer! Anna and Ken’s Promontory Point wedding was at the top of my list as it was one of the most emotional ceremonies I have seen in a long time. You may have come across one of their photos from an earlier blog post I wrote when I found out that an image from their ceremony won an award from Junebug Weddings.
I loved the light during their wedding day and we had plenty of time to walk around the point and make portraits. I highly recommend taking a little time after your ceremony, even if it’s just for a few minutes, to get some great shots right after your ceremony!
I was so excited when Erin and Jim asked me to come to Brooklyn to photograph their intimate wedding this spring. They had originally planned on getting married at a family farm in Iowa but decided to change their plans and have the wedding near their Brooklyn home. Their ceremony at Jane’s Carousel was spectacular, with stunning views of Manhattan and plenty of onlookers. It was very emotional and Erin had so many lovely reactions during their vows. After that, we walked around near the Manhattan Bridge and took some portraits as we made our way towards the reception. Congrats to you both! It was such a joy to be a part of your wedding day.
I was extremely excited to find out that one of my images made it into Junebug Weddings Best of the Best of 2014! They only chose 50 images from around the world and I am humbled to have a winning photograph alongside so many great photographers. Check out all of the amazing work and my winning image from a wedding at Promontory Point last summer is below.
It’s been a busy year and I’m finally getting the chance to catch up on all of the amazing weddings I had the chance to be a part of this season. I’m excited to share Lauren and Tom’s wedding from this summer. This was my first wedding at St. Basil Greek Orthodox Church and it was so much fun to capture all of the ceremony traditions. We stopped at the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum for a quick portrait session before making our way to Hotel Allegro for the reception. The night was full of lively Greek dances and we got the chance to make a fun night photograph outside the hotel.
I love shooting neighborhood engagement sessions and Dani & Jovim’s shoot was no exception. Oftentimes couples are nervous in front of the camera, but after only a few minutes the two were laughing and letting their personalities shine through. We made a few stops around their neighborhood, starting on their block and even made a stop at Forever Yogurt!
I just found out that I recently won a Wedding Photojournalist Association award for this photo from Amy & Joe’s Salvage One wedding! There are some great winning photographs so check them out here: http://www.wpja.com/contests/62-2014-q2-photography-contest/contest-details.html
