To the church!

I recently had the great pleasure of photographing the wedding of a bride who was in my tennis camp when she was a kid! She was ten, and a phenomenal tennis player. She and her new husband actually bonded on the tennis court, getting to know each other through tennis!
Here she is on her way to the church on her wedding day. Shot in black and white, 3200 ISO, exposing for the interior light. I love the drama created by the contrast between the bright outside and the dark foyer.

Southern Weddings

Southern Weddings has just put out Volume IV of their beautiful magazine, and they have included this lovely cake shot of mine from Cameron and Josh's wedding. What a gorgeous magazine this is! It's reminiscent of the annual Real Weddings bible that used to come out and is no longer. Southern Weddings has just enough of the traditional without going too far. They're maintaining a classic look but with all of the fresh details that we love.

Town & Country Weddings - Fall/Winter 2011 Issue

It's not all about the solitaire anymore! Women are going a bit more adventurous with their engagement rings- star sapphires, emeralds, and brown diamonds! I loved photographing all of these gorgeous gemstones. I used a combination of natural and artificial light to give it a soft and feminine feel while still making all the stones look super sparkly and amazing.

Crane & Co. Holiday Cards

Shooting holiday cards for Crane & Co. this week! I love the neutral base here with a splash of turquoise, green, and pink- exactly how I decorate my house! Looking forward to working on the Crane 2012 catalog over the next month!

100 Layer Cake "A-List" Spotlight

As if being selected to be on 100 Layer Cake's "A-List" wasn't enough, Jillian and her team were sweet enough to do a little "spotlight" on me this past Saturday. A nice little interview, and I even like that photo!

Town and Country September 2011

The first two weddings that I shot this past year were at the New York Yacht Club in Newport, and then the New York Yacht Club in New York City! I had the opportunity to photograph inside of two very elite old clubs, both filled with antiques, vintage books, and valuable art. Coincidentally, I was able to get a shot from each of those two weddings into the September issue of Town and Country. Both were beautiful in their own way. Here are a few pictures from each, as well as the spreads from T&C.

Kate & Drew in Brides Boston

It was such an enormous pleasure to shoot the wedding of one of my best friends and longtime colleague, Kate Glum, now Kate Davis! Kate and Drew were married on the Cape! Kate incorporated all kinds of Cape Cod themed elements into the design of her wedding- from seashells on the table to her turquoise and magenta color scheme, everything was designed to a tee. I especially loved her fondant cake with blue waves cresting along each tier. See the feature in the September issue of Brides Boston as well as some more of my favorites!

Flying Carrot Ranch

Last summer, I shot a wedding at a beautiful place called "Flying Carrot Ranch" in Colorado. The bride very cleverly used real-just-out-of-the-ground carrots for decoration, and had them strewn about the property. Here they are piled-up in a wheelbarrow. Brings such a sense of humor and lightness to the decor! And can you tell how huge some of them are?!

Marisa & David in Elle Japan

Marisa and David's beautiful Gramercy Park Hotel wedding was just featured in the September issue of Elle Marriage Japan! I can't actually read the article, but I'm hoping it says good things!...
Here are a couple of my own favorites to add into the mix! I loved Marisa's bright red lips!

Brides August 2011

Haven't I always said you can still take pictures in the rain?! Well, now Brides magazine is even backing me up. See the shot I took at Brad and Ashley's wedding last January running in the August issue along with the below quote:
Brides: "The bride has her heart set on photos in a park. But on her wedding day, it's raining. What do you do?"
Charlotte Jenks Lewis: "We go outside anyway! The rain can actually look very beautiful in photos, and snuggling beneath an umbrella is very intimate and romantic."

A bride starts down the stairs on the way to her wedding.

Stepping out for a sec

A man slips out during the party to make a call.
You can see the beautiful fog rolling in, and his dark suit stands-out nicely against the gray stone.

Flowers + Champagne

There's something about this photo that I just love. The palette works together so nicely, and there's just a hint of a Kate Spade ad in there somewhere.

Rainy Days

Rainy days in Brooklyn can be very romantic.

A week prior, this bride Sarah said to me, "I don't care if it rains. I love umbrella pictures."
Well, it's a good thing!

I love capturing some motion blur during toasts! It helps to communicate the energy and excitement of the evening. Here, my beautiful bride Leah toasts to a joyous night.
