Hooray for Zanna hosting the Oscars on E tonight! She is the senior fashion editor at Marie Claire, and I had the pleasure of shooting her wedding three years ago!

Molly & Moody's Wedding on Style Me Pretty

  It was a lot of fun to shoot the wedding of comedian Moody McCarthy this past fall! This groom gave a lovely toast to his bride- heartfelt, but simultaneously so hilarious the crowd was in two kinds of tears.  And I have to thank them for braving the cold! It was worth it to get these lovely outdoor portraits. See more on Style Me Pretty today!

A Full Skirt

 This is one of my favorite shots from all of last year. This bride was the daughter of the President of Columbia University, and her wedding reception was at the President's mansion on the university campus. Here she is walking up the steps from Morningside Park after we had taken all of the family portraits. I love how her full skirt hangs, how her bouquet hangs at her side, and how her groom is turned in towards her, making sure she's alright.
 Clients always ask me if I stage things, but I really don't. I just try to put people into beautiful spaces and after that I just pay attention;).
 Her dress is Amsale, and this shot is taken with my antique Rolleiflex, black and white film, HP5.

   I love the new dessert trend! There's a wide variety of post-dinner delicacies served either as a substitute or in addition to the traditional wedding cake. It started with a cupcake tower, and now we're seeing so much more!
   Here's some "dessert-spiration" to whet your appetite... mmmmmm......
Among the below are: Slow Bake Meringue with Summer Stone Fruits, Berry Crumble, Petits Fours, Lemon Sorbet Cones, Chocolate-Covered Strawberries, Cotton Candy, Truffle Oil Popcorn, Marshmallows for S'Mores, Watermelon Balls, Chocolate Eclairs, Hot Cocoa, Pecan Pie, Apple Pie, and Pumpkin Pie!

 Second and last shots by Sandy Soohoo for Charlotte Jenks Lewis.

Winter White

 As I'm sitting in my little house, with snowflakes coming down all around, and my little dog and baby huddled-up inside, I think of the beauty of a white winter wedding. I've never shot a wedding in the snow (although I would love to...) but I have shot a fair share of weddings with a winter white theme. This lack of color is not lacking anything at all. It is clean, classic, and can be thoroughly modern. I loved this bride's fur shrug (Oscar de la Renta) and minimalist table scheme. 
 This wedding ran in Martha last spring. Both of these images are shot with my Contax 645, Portra 400 film.
