Jane & Ki Won Wedding – Sparta, New Jersey

Everything about this wedding was so adorable!!  Their venue, the Mohawk House was amazing!  It was a cute space with a western american flare. Never knew such an adorable space existed in New Jersey!  Behind the space, there was an beautiful view of mountains.  It was perfect. Tons of gorgeous daylight and had a very hip decor.  I love Jane and Ki Won- they are such an amazing and hospitable couple.  The wedding started with a ton of rain in the morning.. but the moment we got to the pier to do their first look, the sky cleared- it was a HUGE blessing. We were able to get amazing photographs!!  The wedding ceremony was very touching and the people and family they had surrounding them really lit up the reception.  Here are just some highlights from the big day:

 

 

Joanne & Alan Engagement Session – Montauk, Long Island

Well, well… what can I say about this lovely couple?  First of all, that they’re super amazingly CUTE and awesome and a huge part of my life.  Alan has been great friends with Jeddy and I since, like, a gazillion years ago.  We’ve grown together in church through guitar-ing/writing music/band stuff (woo! GHP!)  and many, many worship events together.  We’ve been through tons of ups and downs in each other’s lives, and most importantly, we’ve been doing the work of Christ together at Awakening Church!!  I am so happy that Alan has found Joanne– and she has since joined the [dream] team! HEHE:)

I’ve seen their relationship grow; from the early stages of dating and now onto their journey to become husband and wife.  I am so excited to be a part of their big day and for the many events leading up to it!!  They decided to do their engagement session in Montauk (where Alan proposed!).  It’s a beautiful place, romantic and sweet… just like them two love birds;) Here are some of my favorites (had a hard time editing this down cause I liked everything…)


Angel & Wing – Engagement Session – Cloisters & Fort Tryon Park

Angel and Wing, aka, Angel-Wings, decided to have their engagement session over my the Cloisters Museum on the Upper West side.  They also really wanted to include Max, Wing’s dog, into the session, so we went to Fort Tryon Park after.  I remember Max when he was a little puppy! Now he’s all grown up, hyper as ever and seeing his best friend get married.  It is too sweet! ^_^  Here are some of the highlights from the shoot!

Alice & Jason Wedding – Westbury, LI

So happy to have been able to photograph with Alice and Jason Wu for their big wedding day in July.  It was a gorgeous outdoors ceremony with many friends and family. The day couldn’t have been any more perfect.  It was a cool summer morning and the day went so smoothly.  I’ve known Alice and Jason since before they even dated, and now they were married.  It has been such a journey and such a beautiful one at that.  I am so very happy for them both.  I could tell that Alice’s father had a bittersweet moment, letting his only daughter go, but I could also tell he was proud, happy and more than willing to allow her to be given to such an honest, faithful and strong man, Jason.  After walking his father down the aisle, her father, right before giving up her hand, gave a heartfelt speech. It was a speech that evoked many tears (I seem to cry at every wedding I shoot and then again when I edit ;__;), a speech that was spoken out of love..and a speech that really touched Alice’s heart.  It was beyond beautiful! I am so happy to have been there to witness such a glorious day and moment, and would like to share some of my favorite shots from the day with you all!  Enjoy!

 

 

Meena & Suyash – Greenwich, CT

Meena and Suyash had memorable pre-wedding events. Meena had a special event in the house where she grew up in Connecticut, with a morning ceremony and tying of kalira (silver ornaments tied to the bride’s marriage bangles for good luck) by family and friends, and henna as well. Then the couple had a wonderful dinner for family and out-of-town guests. The venue was a former bank and the marble floors, vault, floor-to-ceiling windows, and stained glass dome contributed to the beautiful atmosphere as guests mingled, watched a video of wedding wishes from friends around the world, and joined in a touching and hilarious open-mic. The day was gorgeous and elegant, as were Meena and Suyash. Here are some of the highlights:
