Jessica & Zach's Wedding

Gathering these images from Jessica and Zach's wedding, I am struck by the graceful beauty of the day: From the dress to the bouquet, the shoes, to the veil, from the chupa, to the centerpieces; there was a ribbon of simple elegance running through the day.  
 
Achieving such simple elegance is...well...not simple at all. It requires hours and hours of creative minds coming together to plan and prepare. It was Jessica's great fortune to have a mother who is an event planner, and the owner of Incredible EVENTS; Add in her connection with Elie Floral and the magic came to life in the Renaissance Allentown Hotel.  
 
That said, it was truly Jessica and Zach who radiated that day. You'll see it in the images: Jessica's shoulders come up and together when she laughs. It's an involuntary reaction to genuine joy.  
 
Jessica did it all day long.

Brittany & Bob's Wedding

Weddings
Bear Creek Mountain Resort is, at its heart, a ski resort. But long before the first snowflakes fall, the leaves turn golden and lovely - making a perfect backdrop. Brittany and Bob, who were married at Saint Phillips & Saint James Church in Phillipsburg, New Jersey got ready and held their reception at this resort. 
 
Brittany and Bob were wonderful and fun and I couldn't be more pleased with the images from their day.

Lauren & Phil's Engagement

Nov 30, 2016
Engagements
I love working in Manhattan. 
 
Couples frequently choose Central Park for their engagement session but I was thrilled when Lauren and Phil agreed to meet on the High Line, a 1.5 mile-long disused rail line that has been converted into an elevated urban park running above the city's West Side. It's a beautiful garden with stunning views of the city.  
 
You can lean over the edge and look right down into the streets and neighborhoods below. 
 
Lauren and Phil are a beautiful couple and so easy to photograph.  
 
The High Line was packed with visitors but what struck me was how Lauren and Phil seemed to be in a space of their own. Thousands of people rubbing shoulders in that space but, looking at them, they had the place to themselves. They just seemed lost in each other.  
 
It was a great shoot and I am in love with them and their photos.
