Excited to share Laurin and Rick’s recent wedding at Oceanbleu Beachfront Catering in Westhampton Beach.

Laurin is a talented fashion designer and artist whose vision for a Gatsby themed wedding came together beautifully.

Many of the details were handmade by Laurin as was her second dress that she changed into for their reception.

Maybe it is a halo or a crown…either one works for Laurin.

Laurin and Rick are tremendous dog lovers,  his dogbone pin was a sweet reminder of their beloved dogs Sultan & Cooper.

Oceanbleu’s ballroom is a stunning space  for the bride and groom’s first dance and for their guests to celebrate.

 Here I used an ultra wide angle lens to showcase this celebratory scene.

Laurin & Rick did a great job with their choreographed dances.

I love how their guests are cheering them on in the background and how sweet it is to see her Mom and maid of honor hugging each other in this moment.

Daniela & Justin chose to have their engagement session in the suburbs of New York City at Fort Totten Park in Bayside Queens.

What a fantastic choice!  I love photographing in new places and Queens New York brings back a lot of nostalgic memories for me.

Fort Totten Park has the perfect combination of history, architecture, nature and spectacular views of the Throgs Neck Bridge.

And using architecture and nature allows me to use symmetry, space, framing and color as a backdrop to their images.

Daniela & Justin met at a Tom Petty concert at the Beacon Theatre in New York City.

They each had single tickets that were seated next to one another.

How amazing is that?!

I love the beginning of their love story and I feel so grateful to be a part of their wedding this Fall as they bring their story full circle at another theatre – The Suffolk Theatre .

Sharing some of my favorites from their engagement session.

Last month I photographed Kristen & Jason’s intimate North Fork wedding at the historic Jedediah Hawkins Inn in Jamesport.

I’ve been wanting to photograph a wedding here for some time – so I was delighted when Kristen found my website online.

Originally built by Captain Jedediah Hawkins in 1863 – it has been beautifully restored.

Using nature and architecture thrill me and both of these elements abound here providing wonderful photo opportunities indoors and out.

Bridal preparation began in the charming belvedere suite.

 What an interesting and unique space!

I love all the angles, roof lines, exposed brick, nooks, artifacts and the crowning touch is a private staircase that climbs up to a cupola for amazing views in the day and stargazing at night.

They opted for a first look before their Ketubah signing, followed by their ceremony on the lawn.

The cocktail hour included lawn games such as a giant Jenga that entertained their guests before dinner was served  in the solarium.

Cake cutting and dancing took place in the barn and a wonderful time was had by all.

Whether you are getting married , looking for a boutique hotel or a fine dining experience on your next North Fork excursion, be sure to check out Jedediah Hawkins Inn; you will be glad you did and it will become the first of many visits.

Sharing some of my favorites from their special day.

This very special guest heard that Kristen loved animals and decided to crash her wedding …

Kristen and Jason each circled around one another seven times.

Representing the seven wedding blessings and seven days of creation and demonstrating that they are the center of one another’s world.

They hand wrote and read each other their personalized wedding vows. I loved  the stories they shared and their expressions.

I am so excited to share this recent Oyster Bay engagement session.

Some photos were taken in Oyster Bay village and some were taken at the historic Planting Fields Arboretum State Park located in upper Brookville.

This combination of locations afforded wonderful backdrops of both scenery and architecture, which I love to use.

These photos were taken in mid May during a heat wave -my iphone weather app registered 93 degrees during this session but this couple never complained.

Sharing some of my favorites from their session.

I’m pretty sure these two were not even born yet when David Bowie released “Let’s Dance’…but the song fits perfectly.

I want to thank the Chief for driving by at the right time. I love how his red truck balances out our American Flag.

It gives this image a hometown village feel too.

The Somerley Room is Fox Hollow’s most recent addition. It features its’ own private entrance and it is absolutely stunning.

I love the rich tones of the floor, the chandeliers and the fireplace.

I not only love photographing the toasts …but I love listening to them too…

Laughing and tearing up at the fun times remembered and the love that is being publicly expressed.
Here, Nicole’s maid of honor bringing tears to her sister’s’ eyes and she toasts the newlyweds.
