allen childs, new york musician

  I’ve been wanting to create an epic, New York City photo look for a musician for a while now. So when Allen Childs expressed to me that he needed some photos for the website he was building, I proposed we try a rooftop with a view of the Manhattan skyline. No good art comes…

a wedding at st. vincents church

After shooting their engagement photos a year earlier, I was pleased to photograph this bride and groom’s wedding at the St. Vincents Martyr church. Following the nuptials and portrait photography, we had an awesome party at the Grain House At The Olde Mill Inn in Basking Ridge, NJ.

a beer hall wedding

A beer hall is not the first place most people think of when they’re invited to a Jewish wedding in New York City, but these guys wanted something interesting, fun and out of the ordinary fro their wedding.

a wedding at lyndhurst castle

I photographed this wedding last year at the Lyndhurst Castle in Tarrytown, NY. The Hudson River Valley is, in my opinion, one of the most picturesque places you can hold a wedding, and it makes portrait photography a snap. No pun intended. Aware of the photographic potential of the castle, my happy couple budgeted lots…

Once she was ready, we departed to the Deep Cut Gardens in Red Hill for the first look and some garden portraits. From there, a photo op under a covered bridge followed by more portraits at the historic Woodrow Wilson Hall…
