I have a special appreciation for couples that are willing to do sunrise shoots. The light is gorgeous, and the New York City streets are empty. Casey and Jeff were not only willing… they were excited for our adventure!

We caught the beautiful sunrise near their home at Carl Schurz Park before heading to the West Village to Aria Wine Bar, where they had their first date. :)

Casey and Jeffrey, I love how easy you are to laugh, even at 6 in the morning. Your energy is absolutely contagious, and I cannot wait to see your wedding photos!!! In the meantime, enjoy this sneak peek from your engagement shoot!

Tattoos and marriage: two things that are forever. And two things that Jamie and Garrett share from one specific spot on our favorite island in the world.

A few weeks before their wedding, Jamie and Garrett got tattoos of the coordinates of the exact spot where they would say their wedding vows. These two don’t do things halfway. They approach things fully and with a huge sense of fun.

Jamie and Garrett, the experience of shooting your wedding in Key West has truly been a dream come true. Your excitement for the day has been infectious, and your sense of fun and joy at the wedding was palpable. More than all of that, the commitment you two have to each other is inspiring. Jamie, your exciting energy can put a smile on anyone’s face. Garrett, just being around you makes others feel calm and at peace. It’s so amazing to see how you bring out certain qualities in each other; your connection is seamless and makes everyone around you better.

I am so happy for the two of you and so honored that I was able to be part of this journey. Thank you for being my first Key West wedding couple! I love that we have a mutual obsession with this magical place, and your wedding will always be a landmark for me. Congratulations on your marriage, and enjoy this sneak peek of photos!

He Said Yes - NYC Proposal and Central Park Engagement - Luke and Ben

“Hi David it's Luke, today is the day!!!!”

Yes, indeed. The day had finally arrived, and as Luke and I texted about our plans, I could sense the adrenaline, the excitement, the nerves.

Luke and Ben, visiting New York City from their home in the United Kingdom, planned to stop into the Nintendo store since Ben is a huge gamer and has wanted to visit the flagship store for years. Luke knows that he could have proposed anywhere, but he wanted to do it somewhere that would mean a lot to Ben… and somewhere he might not see it coming!

Luke and Ben, I am SO thrilled for the two of you! Your joy and your love is absolutely contagious! I don’t think you came down once during the few hours we spent together. I’m honored that I was able to share this incredible moment with the two of you, and I hope you enjoy this sneak peek from your proposal and engagement session! Congratulations!!!

The Roundhouse Wedding - Beacon, NY - Douglas and Jason

I hope life treats you kind
And I hope you have all you've dreamed of
And I wish you joy and happiness
But above all this I wish you love
And I will always love you

These words, spoken during a speech at Douglas and Jason’s wedding, were met with both laughter and happy tears. Now, it’s normal for a wedding to contain both laughter and tears, but usually they are alternating, not concurrent. Douglas and Jason, and apparently their friends and family, have the magical ability to be deeply vulnerable and authentic while also being ironic and witty at exactly the same time.

Douglas and Jason, following you around on your wedding day was like getting to be part of one of the funniest and most emotionally satisfying movies that I wish everyone could see. Somehow you don’t take yourselves too seriously, finding the ability to make a joke (that lands) pretty much at any moment, while at the same time, you are completely present to the miracle that you actually found each other and are creating this life together as husbands.

I’m so happy to know you two, and I wish you nothing but joy, happiness, and love.
