Jennifer & James Wedding – Central Park, NY

These two lovebirds met in Oxford (yes, the one in the UK). Jen was there, studying for her masters, and James was there, studying for his PhD.  Jen is from New York City, and James is from the UK. They fell in love while rowing together on the same team- so they share an affinity towards boats.  They are the funniest, quirkiest couple I’ve photographed with yet.  I knew Jen since HS, she’s a friend of mine at LaGuardia High School.  Since then, she’s gone all over the world to study ancient artifacts, go on digs, and write up our history!  I have a friend that is a REAL archeologist! I love it!! And she is now at Brown University doing her Ph.D and studying all the ancient works of our earth! It is SO cool.

Jen and James really wanted a “New York” wedding.  It was small and intimate affair at Central Park, but afterwards, they wanted to get photographs to remember their time in the big apple.  We hit up some pretty beautiful spots in Central Park, and then stopped by the Metropolitan Museum of Art (for history, of course!) and then some over in Brooklyn. (Where Jen is from!).  It was such a beautiful day, a beautiful wedding ceremony and a beautiful group of people to spend time with.  I’m so happy for Jen and James and I wish them the best on their journey as husband and wife!

 

 

Elaine & Gary Wedding – Rochester, New York

Flying back up to Rochester brought back a lot of memories.  One of the things I missed most was  Java’s Coffee.  When I was in college, we had a Java’s on our campus, and that was my go-to spot for caffeine and amazing cookies.  They have THE best ‘heath’ cookies… !  To which I can only compare to Momofuku Compost Cookies… but  anyways, enough about COOKIES… I was honored to be asked to photograph the wedding of two of my good friends, Elaine and Gary- whom I had known from my college fellowship at the Rochester Chinese Christian Church.  It was a beautiful ceremony, with so many familiar faces.  It was a blast being able to party with some old-but still great- friends.  CONGRATS YOU TWO!:)

Here are some highlights from the day:


 

 

 

 

 

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!
