When I set foot on Waveny Park and looked up ahead at the Waveny House, I knew I wasn’t in New York City anymore. “Wow,” I thought. The house and its surroundings couldn’t be more picturesque, and it also happened to be a gorgeous day outside.

Little did I know that the venue wouldn’t be the most beautiful thing that I would photograph that day. Kristen and Alex, quite simply, have an energy that is stunningly warm and radiant, and they absolutely blew me away.

Kristen and Alex, thank you for floating through your wedding day on a cloud of joy and goodness. It made my job an absolute pleasure, and I’m so grateful that I was able to experience and photograph your glorious day. Enjoy this sneak peek from your wedding gallery!

YAAAAAAYYYYYYYY!!!!!!! Camille and Danny are married!!!!!

I felt I needed to start this post with some sort of exclamation because that’s what Camille and Danny require and inspire. These two high school sweethearts are like a walking party that everyone is invited to. They have an infectious love for life that is contagious while still being grounded.

Camille and Danny, I’m simply obsessed with you. I know you wanted your wedding to be full of fun, dancing, and celebration, and it absolutely was! But at the core of everything was a calm and easy energy that almost seemed to be whispering “Yup. This is right. This is just how it is meant to be.” You two work because you balance each other, and you bring out the parts in each other that may not be directly on the surface. Your connection is undeniable, and you make everyone around you feel like an insider.

Thank you for inviting me into your lives and for making me feel so welcome and valued. I am so happy for you two!!

T Studio Event Space Wedding - Queens NYC - Jessy and D'Art

I’ve been the legal witness at City Hall weddings when there were no other guests, but this one was a first of sorts.

Jessy and D’Art had about a half hour of downtime after their ceremony, so after giving them a bit of time to themselves, I poked my way upstairs to see if they’d let me snap a few photos in their post-ceremony high as husband and wife (which they did — see above). My assistant Andrew came up just as the officiant was also entering to get the necessary signatures to make the marriage legal. He mentioned that they needed two witnesses. Usually at this point, the bride and groom would call up their siblings or best friends or someone that they wanted to honor.

Without even a moment of hesitation, D’Art smiled broadly and said “David and Andrew!” as if it was the most obvious thing on the planet. And that is how my assistant Andrew and I got the distinguished honor of being Jessy and D’Art’s legal witnesses.

It’s not actually a surprise. That’s just who these people are.

Jessy and D’Art, thank you for being so warm and welcoming throughout this entire process. So many people mentioned balance when they spoke of you two, and it is just so perfect. You two balance each other in so many ways, and you have a pull towards each other that couldn’t be shaken by distance (clearly) and that will only continue to grow. I’m so thrilled for you two and so happy to be part of it all.

Congratulations, and enjoy this sneak peek from your wedding day!

New York City Hall Wedding - NYC Photographer - Annabel and Richard

I actually shed a few happy tears as Annabel was proclaimed the “star of the show” on Masterchef UK. It was as if she was my good friend, but the truth is that we had never met in person. Annabel found me on Instagram, and she and Richard thought I’d be the perfect fit to photograph their elopement in New York City when they visited from the UK.

For the entire year leading up to their wedding, Annabel and I liked each others’ posts, watched each others’ stories, sent each other plenty of DMs, and basically felt like we were becoming good friends, despite having never met or even spoken. When this bride-to-be had her big star turn on TV, I was already totally invested, and the love-fest heightened.

When I finally met Annabel and Richard on the morning of their wedding, it was like being reunited with old friends. Richard was the warm and friendly, quietly confident gentleman that I saw online, and Annabel was that firecracker with a heart of gold that I got to know from TV and DMs.

Not only did I photograph their wedding, but I was also their only guest and the witness to their marriage. The most important thing I witnessed was the consistent respect, love, and admiration with which these two treat each other.

Annie and Richard, it was an absolute joy getting to spend that magical day in New York City with you two. I love that you are so easy to laugh and that you also thrive on the dramatic photos that were so much fun to capture. You two are stars. Congratulations on your marriage, and I hope you enjoy these sneak peek photos!

As Jenn’s bridesmaid said in her speech, Jenn and Scott’s wedding can be summed up with the F word… Finally.

Jenn and Scott met 6 years ago and instantly bonded over their obsession with music, and more specifically Depeche Mode. Looking at them now, the pairing seems obvious, the match seems beshert, absolutely meant to be. These two share a humor and a joy for life; they have an ease about them, and they wear their hearts on their sleeves. Not surprisingly, their wedding was full of laughs and big, huge, radiant smiles.

Jenn and Scott, I have to admit that I don’t know that much about Depeche Mode, but I do know that I love them because they brought you two together. I’m so glad to know you, and I couldn’t be happier that I got to go on this wonderful wedding journey with the two of you. I hope this sneak peek from your wedding brightens your day. Enjoy!
