Konrad is AMAING!!! He is fun, energetic and an expert at his craft! He documented our wedding and photographed our engagement pictures, as well as my fundraising event, “Bowl for Autism”. I am not sure how he captures the most random, intimate, emotional, and breath taking moments; but he does!

Konrad, we love you! You will Always be our photographer… Next shoot…baby pictures… Haha… :)

Cool video, thanks for the look behind the scenes on how you approach things.

reBar Winter Wedding in Dumbo

131208_LauraMichael_Blog_0001

What can I say, this was my last wedding of the 2013 season and it couldn’t have ended with a better couple! They got married at reBar in Dumbo, one of my favorite venues and we did a lot of portraits around Brooklyn, one of my favorite things to do. So yes, this was an awesome wedding last wedding. The wedding was in December so it was a chilly one but that didn’t deter us from taking lots of outdoor photos. We started at their place in Park Slope, went to Prospect Park and then headed to Dumbo via train. Again, very cool! They had the ceremony at reBar and after that it was an all out party.

The reason I love reBar weddings is that everything is very casual. The dinner is cocktail style so there is no formal seating, you can sit down anywhere, and the food is always an amazing buffet. Because of that you never have to stop dancing and there was always someone on the dance floor. Basically it’s always a party!

Shoes, shoes and more wedding shoes (Details series: Part I)

2014_Shoes_Blog_0001

After 4 years of photographing weddings and attending about 130 I thought it be fun to show off some of my favorite images. I love all the different details in a wedding: dresses, bouquets, cakes, shoes, etc. This is the first post of my details series and as you can see its all about the shoes. Couples spent months if not years planing for that one special day and I wanted to share what they chose and maybe get you inspired for your own wedding.

I’m still deciding what to focus on next. Let me know what you’d like to see. Maybe dresses, cakes, favors? Just leave a note in the comment section.

An Intimate Brooklyn Botanical Garden Wedding

131012_MegDan_Blog_0001

Meg and Dan decided to have a small wedding ceremony at the Brooklyn Botanical Garden last fall. It was a beautiful morning and we got in there before the garden officially opened. I met them at a Bed and Breakfast close by that her parents were staying at. I got a few getting ready photos of her and then we walked over to the garden where Dan saw his bride for the first time. After that it was a quick walk to ceremony site they had picked out.

It was a quick but intimate and beautiful ceremony. After all the hugs and congratulations I stole them away for about 30 minutes to walk around the garden and snap away. After that we made a quick stop at the farmers market for some photos and they were married before noon! What a great day!

Petrea and Garvins Dominica Engagement

140105_PetreaGarvinEng_BLOG_0001

I went down to Dominica in December to visit a good friend and fellow photographer. Always been wanting to go and this was a good time to escape the snow in NYC. While I was there I sneaked in an engagement session with her sister and soon to be brother in-law. I had so much fun with these two and loved walking around her uncles property and snapping away.What an amazing island! I’m sad I can’t be there for their wedding in April but can’t wait to see photos. Her sister will be taking some of the wedding photos.

P.S. Its not the Dominican Republic but Dominica. This small island with a population of just 70,000 is between Antigua and St. Lucia. I spent about 8 days there and loved it. Its very different from a lot of the other islands. It doesn’t have white sand beaches and is very mountainous and has 365 lakes!
