April Issue of Brides 2011

I have 4 shots in the April 2011 issue of Brides Magazine! Pink bridesmaid's dresses in the first group, couple in field below, and both Brooklyn wedding shots. Hooray for Brooklyn weddings!

Colorado Wedding

Two of the four images in the latest Brides are from an absolutely incredible wedding in Colorado that I shot this past year. It was my first trip to Colorado, and I'm dying to go back. No one told me, though, that in the middle of the summer there it rains every day at about 4 o'clock, and it rained through the entire ceremony! I used my only non-electronic camera- an antique Rolleiflex, but it gave me my favorite shot of the day!

The Manhattan Bridge

Anytime I'm shooting a portrait of a couple, I have to remind myself to go in close, and to go far away. I shoot with mostly longer lenses, so I've actually run fifty feet in the other direction to get this shot. But I'm also leaving them alone. And I'm giving them a moment. And you can tell.

Back at it!

I am so excited for summer and so excited to start shooting weddings again! I'm off to Newport this weekend.
This beautiful East Hampton wedding was planned in just two weeks! The bride hired me literally 14 days prior to the event!

Grandpa knows best

My father always loved to play games with us! Here he is playing cards with my niece, Lilly, passing the love of games on to the next generation. You can tell she is concentrating very hard, and he is very entertained.

the Kiss

On this wonderful wedding day, the groom had left his wedding shoes in the taxi, along with the marriage license! I love this photograph, because despite all of the chaos and stress, the couple was completely consumed by one another. It is a very quiet and peaceful shot, going in for the kiss, and you want to go in there right with them.
