Sarah has a new favorite and wanted to share! How could I deny her?
This shot was taken at the Metropolitan Building in Queens. I just
love how this couple meshed style and elegance with the shabby chic
environment of their venue. The formality of their pose is a cool
juxtaposition to the busy-ness of their backdrop. Also, you can see a
hint of silliness in their smiles beneath this “serious” formal
portrait. It’s a shot that really makes you want to know more about

The wedding of Donna and Chad in Portland, OR was lovely, down to earth , fairy tale like and very modern/hipster at the same time…

Jenny Ebert of 1artbeautylife:
There are moments when I am looking through the lens and I cant help but thinking …”wow they are so amazingly happy”. Jocelyn and Michael were married last summer on Cape Cod. It had rained the day before, the light was saturated and beautiful…all was perfect. Then the gnats came. Little tiny bites were attaching every inch of exposed flesh and here stood Jocelyn and Michael in the thick of it, as if without a care in the world..they had just gotten married and they are of the happiest people on earth.

Jordan Ferney from Oh Happy Day:
One of my favorite things I did at my wedding was to create a giant spread of pretty cakes, cupcakes and petit fors. I collected milk glass cake plates for display and I gave the bakery specific instructions on cake decorating.

Tara Mandy from BFF Bridal:
The first one is a shot our photographer caught of the flower girls when they first saw “the bride” (me). You can see from their expressions how magical the whole experience was for them. I think that for a little girl, seeing a bride is probably right up there with seeing Santa Claus. And I love that.
The second one: Of the thousand or so pictures our photographer took, this one always makes me smile the most. For one thing, I can remember how much fun we were having right at that moment. But there are also some details—the earrings that he gave me as a wedding present, his wedding band, the buttons I bought for him in Portugal, the cheesy wedding cake topper (which was his ONE request in the whole year of wedding planning)—that I just find so personally endearing.
