When two of your dearest friends decide to get married at city hall in the middle of summer and ask you to photograph it… You make sure you’re there! It worked out perfectly though! I just happened to be in NY for a workshop called Hustle and Flow and they got married the day before the workshop. It was ridiculously hot, but we managed to get outside for a few photos! Congrats to these amazing souls!! Can’t wait for the big wedding next year!!

Well aren’t they freaking cute?!?! Brian and Loren KILL ME!!!! They are both super stylish dudes (expect more shoots with them!) and two of the kindest souls out there. It’s not a surprise they wound up together. I’ve been bugging Brian to do a shoot with Loren and Loren’s been bugging Brian to do a shoot with me. After enough nagging, Brian gave in and it was SO DANG FUN!!! We wandered around Soho and Lower East Side. Enjoy!!

A NEW YORK BRIDESBABE MOMENT

What do you call it when a bride asks her friends to be her bridesbabes? I can't think of a name honestly, but this session/event/hang out was awesome! Jacqueline flew to New York from Chicago to ask her best friends to be her brides babes "it had to be you!" It was perfect timing because I was also in New York staying pretty close by, so I was able to meet at the Crosby in Soho to capture all the special moments! So excited for her bachelorette party in Palm Springs and her bridal shower in NYC!

A LOVE STORY IN THE VILLAGE

It was a warm autumn day in the village - perfect for an engagement session. Carrie and Francesco are both models and had each booked a shoot with me, but also wanted some shots together. Little did I know, they've been talking about marriage, so it turned into a bit of an engagement shoot. We wandered around West Village and captured their love, which is endless and true. Being around these two, you see what true love looks like. Enjoy!

Alex + Maria: Brazil to New York

A BRAZILIAN LOVE STORY IN NYC

Alex and Maria are two of the sweetest people I've met! I first worked with Alex when he was signed to Adam Models. Now he's signed to MSA and his gorgeous girlfriend is now his fiancé! He mentioned Maria wanted to shoot with me after seeing the shots he and I had taken and of course I wanted to photograph her! It took a few attempts, but it finally happened and I remember the entire shoot I kept asking Alex if/when he was going to propose because they have been together for 7 years! Well he proposed and she said yes and I'm so glad I was able to snap these photos pre-engagement!
