Clare & James…Rockaway Beach and Bridgeview Yacht Club Wedding, New York City Wedding Photographer

As we walk down Rockaway Beach Boulevard on what I deem to be a perfect NY morning, we say our hellos to happy neighbors and move aside as energized kid’s wiz by on their bikes.  We can feel the neighborhoods excitement for the fast approaching summer.  Cars roll by slowly as they make their way through the school zone and you can smell coffee wafting from paper cups as people pass by hoping to catch a glimpse of the bride inside her home as she gets ready for one of the best days of her life.  Inside Clare’s home hairspray flies through the air, make-up cases clang as they open and shut and there are inevitable sounds of nervous excitement.  And through it all, Clare is beaming.  It’s a similar story in Marine Park as James and his groomsmen get ready in his childhood home.  While they laugh as they wrestle to put their tuxes on correctly you can’t help but watch as James’ dad looks on with pride and love.   It’s this family love that really resonates throughout Clare & James’s wedding day.  You can tell immediately that these two cherish their family and friends and truly love where they come from and the camaraderie that comes with being a New Yorker. This contentment creates a warmth and ease that Clare & James have with one another, one that says, “We are in this together, now and always…”  This we know will get them through anything as they make their way through life and marriage.  Congratulations Clare & James and here’s to now and always.

Caitlin & Drew…Bella Collina Wedding, Monteverde, Florida, Florida Wedding Photographer

Caitlin & Drew’s wedding was surreal.  It was like taking a walk down a quiet street in Tuscany.  If we could personally create the perfect day for our couples, Caitlin & Drew’s wedding day at Bella Collina would be it.  Their wedding day was so warm and inviting in so many ways, one being Caitlin & Drew themselves, so sure, happy and ready to say I do.  Then there was the completely authentic and charming grounds of Bella Collina, the images will have to speak for that as I don’t know when I would be able to stop.  In saying that, with so many weddings we have had the pleasure of shooting the true beauty is always found in the couples and their story and unique connections with those they love.  It’s about Caitlin’s close relationship with her mom and sister.  And the way Caitlin’s dad looked at her for the first time in her wedding dress, as if to say, “Where did my little girl go?”  It’s the bond that Drew and his son Baylor have and to see how Baylor and Caitlin are creating their own special bond as well.  Weddings are meant to celebrate not just where we are now but also where we’ve been and who has loved us along the way.  So here’s to Caitlin & Drew and their story of love…

Julie & Christopher…Marie Selby Botanical Gardens & The Hyatt Regency Wedding, Sarasota Florida, Florida Wedding Photographer

True class and beauty that is how I would sum up Julie & Chris.  And these characteristics made themselves present throughout their wedding day.  You can’t help but be in awe of Julie when you are in a room with her…she is truly beautiful and her gorgeous lace dress with her cathedral length veil was enough to bring you over the edge.  Lush lavender, silver and blush pinks graced their sunset ceremony beneath the Pavilion and among the foliage at Marie Selby Botanical Gardens.  And then the blush draped ballroom at Sarasota’s Hyatt Regency was something out of magazine.  Beyond all that was gorgeous about this wedding (and it was ALL gorgeous), Julie & Chris and their family and friends were never without smiles, laughter, and even a few happy tears.  This family was there to celebrate the love and coming future for two very special people and we feel so lucky that we were able to tell their wedding story.  Here’s to the beginning of many amazing stories ahead.

Natalia & Stephen…Palm Island Resort Wedding, Sarasota Wedding Photographer

There are just some weddings that we shoot where you can just feel the rightness of it all.  The bride and groom, the family members, the friends – it all just seems meant to be; everything and everyone in perfect harmony.  This is what Natalia & Stephen’s wedding day felt like…everyone there together to celebrate the true love of two remarkable people.  Yes, the wind was a bit gusty that day on beautiful Palm Island, as I am sure Natalia will attest, but that wind played in some gorgeous favor when it came to capturing their moments.  Natalia & Stephen are so wonderful to be around and their relaxed nature was really emphasized in every aspect of their day; truly, a classic and organic beach wedding at its best.  We have to say that meeting these two and telling their wedding day story was a true pleasure.  Congratulations again to Natalia & Stephen.
