Hi everyone!  I hope you are all having a good weekend.  The weather here is abysmal, and so I thought I would spread some cheer by sharing the joyously colorful photos from the wedding of Rupa and Ian.  They chose to have a traditional Indian wedding, complete with Hindu fire ceremony, to celebrate and honor Rupa’s cultural roots.  The wedding took place at East Wind Inn out on Long Island.  This is a family that loves to dance, and the mix of Indian and American house music was hopping.  Enjoy the pics!

Justine and Dave: ‘Trash the Dress’ Shoot

Thinking about doing a ‘trash the dress’ shoot?  Check out these photos of Justine and Dave, who I was lucky enough to photograph for their wedding in June at the Davenport Beach Club in New Rochelle.  They decided that instead of a traditional engagement portrait they wanted something a little bit different that would give Justine a second chance to show off her dress.  And so Dave and Justine took the dress out for a whirl around Battery Park in NYC.  The sunlight was incredible and was a nice complement to the couple’s dancing skills.  Enjoy!
