Chelsea and Alex chose NYC's Fort Tryon Park, bursting with blooming vegetation, as the location for their nuptials.
Their sweet ceremony officiated by the couple's friend was held under majestic American elm trees, and reception was hosted by New Leaf Restaurant.
My fantastic second shooter Nadine Rovner and I loved the organic, relaxed vibe of Chelsea and Alex's wedding day. Selection of images from us both below!

Michelle and Marcus, my fabulous October wedding couple picked some really fun locations for their e-session. We first spent a couple of hours at Storm King, an open air Art Center that features large scale contemporary sculpture, and then traveled to the sweet little town of Cold Spring, and ended on a beautiful rocky landing right on the Hudson River. Michelle and Marcus were such dynamic, awesome & animated models- I loved their session, and can not wait for the Beacon Roundhouse wedding :)
Andrea & Chris got engaged a while ago in front of the historic post office in a picturesque village of Stony Brook, Long Island. Naturally, they suggested that meaningful location for their engagement session. We were enjoying the most gorgeous day and an early summer breeze coming from the nearby Long Island Sound. I can not wait to capture their wedding at one of my all time favorite locations in Brooklyn! <3

Megan and Jonathan, my absolutely amazing May couple got married in Wiliamsburg, Brooklyn. After their sweet, waterfront ceremony, the couple and all the guests followed a fantastic brass band through the neighborhood. Reception took place at one of my favorite venues- MyMoon! One of the highlights of the party was a Filipino dance troupe, that entertained guests and challenged them to a native dance.
My awesome second shooter was Nadine Rovner.

Joyce and Laureen met at Cherry Grove beach, in Fire Island about 20 years ago.. and so they decided to hold their three day wedding extravaganza at a nearby hotel, the Dune Point. Fire Island is accessible off the coast of Long Island by a short ferry ride, and yet it feels like a completely foreign land. It's beautiful and wild, with deer and other wildlife meandering amongst cute quaint cottages, it's so peaceful without automobile traffic, it's warm and inviting, and fun, visited and inhabited by straight, and same sex folks.
Joyce and Laureen planned their three day event as a 'retreat of sorts' for their small group of closest friends and family. There were welcome gift baskets with personalized towels, lip balm and other goodies... there was a fabulously decorated main hangout patio, with fantastic wait staff, and full catering. There was plenty of delicious cherry pie.
The couple welcomed their ferry arriving guests right on the landing deck, waving pink boas, wine glasses in hand.
After Joyce & Laureen's emotional ceremony under a tent (unfortunately the rain did not allow for a beach gathering), all the guests, sipping from miniature bottles of Moet & Chandon champagne, traveled on the ferry to Schooner Inn, a favorite local hangout, and enjoyed a performance by Porsha, a drag queen extraordinaire.
Rupert, the couple's cute pup was Belle of the Ball.
The entire wedding weekend was planned & coordinated by the best of the best- Lisa Jaffe of Fire Island Weddings.

Enormous thanks to my fantastic second shooter & friend Anne Ruthmann.
