Gabbie & Dave | 11.23.17

I opted out of my photographer duties and let Mark shoot solo so I could be a part of my good friend Gabbie's wedding. We traveled to Florida over Thanksgiving last year and watched her marry Dave in the backyard of her parents' house (so sweet!). We had a few days of gorgeous weather and when the wedding day came, we were greeted with torrential rain and a tornado warning (!), but everyone was all smiles regardless. These two were troopers and got a little wet but all in all the day was a total success. Sometimes I think how weird it is that I've known this girl for 10+ years; we used to share a tiny Manhattan apartment and belt out 'Newsies' songs while eating takeout during our college years. I'm so grateful for these long-lasting friendships, and so happy to have been a part of one of the most important days of Gabbie's life. xoxo -- j

Kara & PJ | 11.17.17

I think at this point Jess and I might be honorary McDonalds. Kara is the fourth sibling of the McDonald clan we've had the pleasure to shoot. Each of their weddings has been unique and Kara and PJ's was no exception. It was a cold, clear day in November with the Manhattan skyline as our backdrop. These two were troopers, even in the freezing cold! I think their classic taste is evident throughout these photos. As the last sibling to get married, this may be bittersweet, but I have a feeling we'll see all these familiar faces soon enough.  --m

Nikki & Dan | 11.11.17

Nikki and Dan's wedding took place on a cold November day in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, just around the corner from the charming apartment they call home. We got to meet their sweet kitty, play some antique instruments, witness a truly intimate ceremony, and use the city as our backdrop for it all. It was simple, local, true to them, and full of lots of love.   --j

Andrea & Tommy | 10.1.17

This autumn has been full of weddings that have reconnected us with old friends. Andrea and I were inseparable in our middle school years, and when we went to different high schools, we lost touch and hadn't seen each other since we were practically pre-teens. It was so special for me to be there on her wedding day, to meet her 3-year-old daughter (how are we moms now?!), and it made me so happy to see the new little family that she's made. Tommy's sense of humor literally carried everyone through the day. Wishing these THREE so much love and happiness to come. --j
