new york winter wedding

This awesome couple was married last winter in the Church of the Holy Innocents in Midtown Manhattan on a nice, snowy day.

lakeside manor wedding

This couple was married at the Gramercy at Lakeside Manor in Hazlet, New Jersey. The wedding had the trappings of a traditional Jewish ceremony, but the bride and groom made sure it had a contemporary flare, and they wanted their photos to reflect that.

This nice New York family invited me into their lovely back yard to take portraits before they went to dinner to celebrate Anya’s graduation.
