I recently shot an engagement shoot on Coney Island for the lovely Sandy and Noah. They are a fun couple, and it shows in their choice of location. As always, April is unpredictable, weather-wise, but we made the most of it and the sun was shining by the end of the afternoon. Coney Island is a great location for portrait shoots of all types, but always keep in mind the crowd factor and schedule your shoot either early or late in the day. Also, plan to get a bit wet and sandy on the beach so plan your outfit accordingly!
These two are big dancers (as you will see in their wedding photos), and Noah is quite the acrobat. Coney Island is the perfect place to show off your moves, on the board walk and beyond. Enjoy the photos.

I recently had the great honor of photographing the wedding of Seda and Omer at their Manhattan Marriage Bureau wedding. They are a lovely couple who were joined by Omer’s sister (and wedding witness!), Layla, as they patiently waited for their number to be called. The whole process took approximately one hour on a Friday morning. The lesson here is that if you are going to get marriage at the Manhattan Marriage Bureau on a Friday, then make sure you get there early. Weddings taking place in the afternoon can include a wait of two hours or more.
After the brief ceremony, we took some portraits both in the wedding garden, located just outside of the City Clerk’s office and on the steps of the NYC courthouse. Enjoy the photos!

I am honored to be included in this season’s issue of New York Magazine Weddings. The write up includes a note that I am one of the most affordable options for wedding photography in the City. Check out the issue on newsstands now!
Please meet Catherine and West, whose Red Hook and Brooklyn Bridge Park engagement portrait I recently shot. We started right next to the bridge and worked our way to the end of the park by the former piers. The weather turned out to be perfect! I can recommend both locations highly. For couples considering the park as a possible photo shoot location, you do have to secure a permit if you are shooting during the week (though it only costs $26). No permit is necessary if you are shooting on the weekend, and Red Hook doesn’t require a permit at any time.
Congratulations to Lily and Yann on their wedding at City Hall on March 14th! The couple is from France, and came to NYC to get married because it is their favorite city in the world. After a quick ‘I do’ at City Hall, Lily and Yann wanted to enjoy the beautiful sprint weather at Washington Square Park. We had a delightful day taking photos underneath the cherry blossom trees, and Yann even tried to outwit Lily on the chess board.
