About once a year I have photographed a wedding. I don't photograph traditional, large venue weddings, but intimate non-traditional weddings, and I LOVE it! Witnessing two people devote themselves to each other is such a blessing. I love being able to capture their love and commitment to each other. If you are having a town hall, backyard or small intimate wedding, feel free to contact me, but if you are having the large venue traditional wedding, I am not your girl, but I can certainly point you in the right direction of a great friend and amazing photographer who is. Don't get me wrong, I love traditional weddings, I had one myself. This amazing couple I met a few years ago through my good friend. She told me when the time came her sister wanted time to photograph her wedding, so I waited. I waited for her to get engaged, then I waited for her to set a date and destination (because that is what she thought she was going to do) and then plans changed and they asked me to photograph their wedding at the Town Hall, and I couldn't wait! Jackie and Jamie are such an amazing couple with the cutest son! Watching their son get to see his parents get married was adorable. He gave a huge "WHOOP" when they were finally pronounced married.
Living on Long Island you are never far from the water, and I absolutely love being able to shoot at the beach. This family is one of my favorite client families. I have been shooting for them since their little boy was born and I hope to continue to be able to watch them grow. This day was super windy and gray and at first I was disappointed that we would not be able to get any sunset pictures, but then I saw how amazing the clouds were and how great they would look in black and white with the contrast.
Had a wonderful summer evening with the Stewart family. When mom contacted me to book the session, I quickly realized that although I had never met her, I knew her daughter, who even though she had not started elementary school ye,t was already the Mayor of the playground there. I knew right away that this would be a fun and playful session.
A year ago we first met the Pattens. They had just moved into town and were looking to introduce their son to other kids who would also be in first grade. Our boys were in the same class and became the best of friends, and our little girls bonded over their love of Elsa. This family has become like a lifeline for me and my family, we are beyond lucky they moved into our neighborhood!
Last year when my son started kindergarten I met so many wonderful families, including the "O" family. It is so nice to finally have so many friends in town. We had the perfect weather for this session at the beach. And doesn't their little girl have the BEST hair?! I have always wanted curly hair just like this, of course the grass is always greener because she already wants to have her hair straightened.
