Dalina & Whitley | 5.25.19

Dalina and Whitley’s wedding was set to an industrial background steeped in the memory of Paterson Falls as a source of power. The details and textures were almost overwhelming; as turning my lens a few feet would create a whole new composition.

Heather & Ryan | 10.19.18

Heather and Ryan’s wedding was painted with lush fall colors. You could smell the fires burning inside the centuries old stone buildings.

There were even a few groundhogs in attendance. A perfect October day. —m

Dana and Marc’s wedding was the classic New York event at the beautiful botanical gardens in the Bronx. Their intimate ceremony was officiated by the groom’s dad, and the bride and groom even shared a “unity cocktail” before they said their I do’s — a first even for us! Their modern bridal style, great taste in music (dancing for the first time to Neil Young’s “Harvest Moon,”) and the out-of-this world delicious food made for an all-around good time had by all. Their sense of humor carried everyone through the day, and we had so much fun being a part of it. —j
