The beginning of a new year started with a truly cool mini adventure for me, as I traveled to Naples, Fl to photograph my clients Dana & Ron. Dana & Ron reside in Washington DC, but traditionally like to travel South in the winter. We were so lucky with the most perfect sunny weather + some really interesting sites to explore. We started at Koreshan Historic site, which is fascinating in itself.. a former village occupied by members of a very curious faith. Then we traveled to the Ritz Carlton, where Ron popped the question exactly one year ago. Later, after strolling the Ritz grounds with champagne in hand, we ended up at a gorgeous beach and the dunes. Dana and Ron are not only the most genuine and lovely couple, they are also so good looking together.. and they know their fashion! I am very honored to have met them, and can not wait for their June wedding, yay!

The beginning of winter of 2016 was really super exciting for me! After few days in Florida, where I traveled for an engagement session, I got to spend some time in Jamaica! I was there to capture pre -wedding & wedding celebration for an amazing couple- Limor and David. 
Since David is very much into sailing, the day before the wedding they invited all the guests for a sunset cruise, complete with a snorkeling expedition. The cruise departed from Doctor's Cave Beach- one of the most well known & picturesque spots in Jamaica.
On the wedding day the couple (along with their little girl Liana) got ready at Rosehall Hilton Hotel, and had their first look at a nearby 18th century historic aqueduct, that was such a unique backdrop for the portrait session. The ceremony was held in front of the Rose Hall Great Hall. Now a museum - the mansion holds the legend of the White Witch, who was the wealthy and cruel owner of the estate a few hundred years ago.
Following a cocktail hour in the shade of an ancient majestic tree, reception took place outdoors at Twin Palms court. 
It was such a fun adventure. Thank you to Limor & David for having me document it & a shoutout to Nick White who was shooting with me!

If you happen to travel to Jamaica, do check out Nutmeg Villa (owned by my dear friend Charmaine) as a potential place to stay with your family & friends!! It's the best in Montego Bay.

One of my top favorite elements of working with wedding couples in love is capturing their pre- wedding shoot, aka the engagement session. I love to find unique spots, play with color and light, treat my couples as if they were actors in the scene by encouraging the interaction with each other, whether playful, romantic or full of theatrical drama. Check out some of my most memorable images from this past season!

John and Marco's magnificent yet intimate wedding was hosted at a very unique Locanda Cavallo, right on the Delaware River in PA. Cavallo's is a family owned restaurant & inn, filled with original artwork, exquisite furnishings, and tons of European charm. Shirley and Brondo who own the Locanda are master chefs. 
A friend of the couple, Glenn was officiated their sweet ceremony. I loved documenting John & Marco, their fantastic crowd of closest friends & family, and this stunning location!
