I know my clients would like to think that I don’t toss a single image from their session. Each and every moment is truly precious. But when it comes to making a decision for printing, we all suffer from paralysis through analysis. I haven’t had a consistent headshot in years, because my Dad keeps taking pictures of me, but I can’t decide which truly represents my personality.
So the question becomes, not, do I delete this:

About a year ago, I get this email through my online website form, from a Jason, asking about my wedding packages. After a few back and forth email’s, we sent up a meeting downtown to discuss their wedding. I show up a few early, and in walks one of my former yoga students. It takes me a second to put two and two together, when his girlfriend, Stina, also a former student, joins him. They sit down and say “we thought it would be a fun surprise not to tell you!”
Needless to say, so much fun to work for folks that you respect so much, and who are so vibrant at heart.
Their lovely wedding brought Stina’s family in from Sweden, and united many friends from California and around the country. Meadowlark Garden, in Virginia, one of my favorite family portrait locations, provided the perfect backdrop for this heartfelt ceremony.
Many congratulations Jason and Stina! What an honor to work with you both.
Have an amazing honeymoon!

This weekend I had the joy of traveling to shoot the wedding of Stephanie and Aaron.
Stephanie is a triplet, and last year I photographed her sister and brother-in-law’s gorgeous wedding.
This past winter, I photographed their Times Square engagement session, in which we did a famous reenactment. Together we created an awesome guest book from that session, and a large wall art print of the famous photograph. That print is an instant family heirloom that I’m sure their kids and kids kids will love.
So, when they asked me to do their wedding in Long Island, I jumped at the opportunity. Assisted by the fantastic Cary Barker, of Christine Barker Photography, we drove up on Friday, and shot this daytime wedding on Saturday.
Aaron and Steph, you two are the best. The bonding of not only yourselves and your families, but also the strengthening of your tight-knit group of friends is just inspirational to witness. I hope you’ve rested up from your marathon wedding week and are enjoying these first days as newlyweds.
