Chanel and Adam’s Yale Club Wedding: New York City Fine Art Wedding Photography

Chanel and Adam’s gorgeous wedding day was truly magical in every way.  Not only was the day full of love and happiness, but every detail had been thoroughly thought out and planned to perfection.  The classic Yale Club venue set the scene for a day of elegance and glamor.  Diana Gould Ltd decked out the room in gorgeous white roses dripping in crystals and made even more romantic by the hundreds of candles scattered across the tables bathing the room in a warm yellow glow straight out of a fairy tale.  The tables were named after cities the bride and groom visited together and their calligrapher Christina DellaValle created a custom drawing of the city for each table.  Chanel wore a stunning lace and tulle ballgown designed custom for the bride by the bride’s mother and was topped off by a sparkling head piece by Enchanted Atelier.  The bride truly looked royal and while taking portraits in Central Park we were approached by many an onlooker asking if the bride and groom were celebrities!  See more from their gorgeous wedding today on Style Me Pretty!

Crane Beach Engagement Session, Destination Fine Art Wedding Photography

I was so incredibly honored when Melissa, the editor extraordinaire of Style Me Pretty’s Little Black Book and blogger at Yours Truly, asked me to photograph her engagement!  We shot on the gorgeous Crane Beach on one of the last beautiful warm days of summer as the sun set behind us and turned the sky and ocean around us the most beautiful shade of pink.  Melissa and Shawn were such a pleasure to photograph!  I adore engagement sessions because they are such a wonderful opportunity to capture some real moments of this unique time in your life of being young and in love and just being yourselves.  Melissa and Shawn could not have been more genuinely in love and they were so sweet with each other the whole shoot, which makes my job so fun – and hello supermodel alert – I felt like I was on a fashion shoot on the beach with these two stunners!  We were having so much fun we shot every inch of available light as the sun set around us, and luckily didn’t get in too much trouble for staying out on the sand after dark, because I just couldn’t stop shooting these two!  Check out the feature today on the front page of Style Me Pretty!

Fall Family Portraits in Central Park, New York City Lifestyle Family Photography

Every year when Fall rolls around I know I can count on a few things- pumpkin flavored everything, beautiful foliage in Central Park, digging out all my favorite cozy sweaters from my closet and a ton of family portrait sessions!  Tis the season of holiday cart shoots and I love them!  I adored this session on an early morning in Central Park with three generations being photographed!  Early morning weekday shoots are my absolute favorite in Central Park because the light is gorgeous and it’s empty other than a few joggers and early risers walking their pups on off leash hours.
