Alison and Kris, I knew we would hit it off from your initial inquiry email when you mentioned ugly crying.

The truth is, what I love most about weddings (and there’s *a lot* I love about weddings) is when unfiltered emotion and humanity come to the forefront. Alison and Kris, I love that you were both so present and that you allowed yourselves to fully feel and experience the incredible joys of your wedding day. I’ve totally fallen for you, and I’m so happy that I was able to celebrate with you and capture your stunning day!

T Studio Wedding - Astoria Queens, NYC - Kelly and Johannes

“This is her favorite song,” Kelly said. Although the little girl was fast asleep at the wedding reception, Kelly gently scooped her up, headed to the dance floor, and proceeded to rock the little girl through the entire song, ensuring that she stayed fast asleep in her arms.

This is who Kelly is. Where most would have seen a losing situation (either wake the girl or have her miss dancing to her favorite song), Kelly saw a way to give this girl the best of both worlds.

Johannes and Kelly met at a jazz club while Johannes was visiting New York City from Germany. The two hit it off but didn’t think it could actually become anything, given the distance. However, they found themselves Skyping every night and visiting each other every few months for 5 years until Johannes moved to New York to be with Kelly.

You see, they both realized there wasn’t another Kelly or Johannes that was more conveniently located. This was the one. The only one.

Kelly and Johannes, I couldn’t be happier for you two. Kelly, you are the epitome of grace, kindness, and compassion, and you make everyone feel as though they are the most special person. Johannes, you are equally kind and so thoughtful and loving; your presence puts others at ease The two of you deserve each other, and that is a high compliment for both of you!

I’m so honored to have been trusted to capture your beautiful wedding day, and I’m thrilled to share these photos with you. Congratulations!

Astoria Engagement Shoot - NYC - Brittany and David

“Whatever Brittany wants.”

It was early in the shoot, and David was clearly going along with the engagement session shenanigans because he knew Brittany was all about it. He wore the outfits she picked out, he didn’t protest when we went out in the rain, and by the end of the time, I swear he was enjoying himself. Maybe it was the champagne and the beer, or maybe it was the fact that these two simply know how to have a great time together.

Brittany, I was already smitten with you from our illustrious email relationship, and it was so wonderful to meet you in person to find that you’re even more colorful and exciting in real life! I love that you are all about having a great time, and I love that you were game to go out in the rain, even though your hair was totally on point.

David and Brittany, I am beyond excited to shoot your wedding next year because I know it’s going to be a total blast!! You two are such a great match, and I am totally smitten with you and your relationship. Enjoy this sneak peek from your engagement session!
