I’m beyond excited to share a few of my favorite images from Neana and Ali’s newborn session. They welcomed their beautiful baby girl and I’m so honored to have taken her very first photos for her parents to love and treasure forever. It’s a full circle moment for me from knowing the happy couple from engagement, to wedding, maternity and now newborn. Being a photographer for each and every one of my couples is truly an honor! xo
I’m so honored to share that two of my weddings were featured on Style Me Pretty’s FRONT Page - Hooray! Nicole and Brett’s wedding at the gorgeous Bonnet Island Estate in New Jersey and Jing & Bob’s wedding at Gurney’s Montauk Resort and Seawater Spa which is one of my favorite wedding venues! Thank you Style Me Pretty for the incredible features!! xo
When you love the beach, the ocean, and the Summer breeze as much as Nicole and Brett do, you bring as much of as you can into your wedding day. The Bride and Groom got married at the stunning Bonnet Island Estate in New Jersey on one of the most perfect Summer days you could imagine. They worked with Bethany from Modern Kicks Event Planning to plan, design, and execute their perfect wedding day!
The couple love their animals and wanted to include them as much as they could so their dog JJ was their official ring bearer and Erin Braun Design created custom stamps for their stunning ocean inspired wedding invitation suite. Ivie Joy Flowers created an incredible archway inside the white chapel and decorated the fireplace with tons of greenery with pops of blue and white flowers to coordinate with the couples wedding decor.
It was an emotional wedding ceremony that brought everyone inside the chapel to tears. When everyone knows you waited to for your soulmate, they all have a stake in the game. I absolutely LOVED being part of their gorgeous wedding day and thrilled to be part of their lives. I cannot wait to see what amazing moments happen next!! xo

It’s always an honor to be asked to photograph a newborn session, but it’s even more special when it’s one of your past couples. I was so excited to see Kathleen and Charlie and meet their little lady Grace. What a dream right? She was the best baby during her session and it was great to catch up with my couple. I love how being a wedding photographer leads to so many wonderful opportunities to stay apart of my couples lives. Here are a few of my favorite images from their in home newborn session.
On a perfect day in Brooklyn, two college sweethearts got married in front of their closest family and friends. The bright blue skies started off their wedding day on the right note as Luisa got ready at the new 1 Hotel at the foot of Brooklyn Bridge Park. It has breathtaking sweeping views of the New York City skyline and Brooklyn Bridge. The Brides sisters gifted Luisa a stunning pair of Bella Belle shoes and commissioned an artist to hand paint a bottle of Veuve Clicquot with meaningful locations to the couple including where they got engaged.
The groom waited patiently in front of The River Cafe garden to exchange their first look. This location is very special to the couple because it’s where Rich asked Luisa to be his wife! We visited the iconic DUMBO waterfront for their bride and groom photos. We visited St. Anne’s Warehouse, Jane’s Carousel, and stood in front of the Brooklyn Bridge. Their bridal party arrived and we took their photos by the beautiful brick openings at St. Anne’s Warehouse.
The couple got married at an intimate wedding ceremony at St. Mary Star of the Sea in Cobble Hill before heading over to The Green Building for their wedding reception. It was the perfect night to enjoy the outside patio for cocktail hour. To celebrate the Brides Mexican heritage, bits of Mexican flare were all over the green building. From the white Papel flags after their wedding ceremony, to strings of flags decorating the cocktail hour space. The couple gifted their guests hand painted Mexican morocco’s designed with their wedding dates. Such a wonderful touch for an incredible couple!
