99 Scott Wedding : Allison & Mike

Brooklyn, NY - November 9, 2018


^^Don’t you love how soft, romantic and wraparound the light is in those last fleeting seconds of daylight?  Me too.


Allison & Mike pulled out all the stops for their September wedding in Brooklyn, NY at 99 Scott.  Getting ready at 1Hotel Brooklyn Bridge is not just a good choice but in many ways the why-go-anywhere-else choice.  After utilizing this rustic contemporary space we made our way to St. Paul’s Roman Catholic Church for the wedding mass before taking portraits in DUMBO.  The icing on the cake was arriving at 99 Scott in East Williamsburg.  There are some venues I pull up to and think to myself, is it too early to renew my vows?

Logan Hotel Wedding : Zhanna & Seth

Philadelphia, PA -


Living in New York, it’s easy to forget just how close Philadelphia is.  After a couple hours in the car, I found myself at The Logan Downtown Philadelphia Hotel where Zhanna and Seth held their ceremony and reception.  Nestled along museum row and a stone’s throw from City Hall, The Logan boasts an amazing roof lounge, gorgeous rooms, outdoor space for ceremony and cocktails and a beautiful ballroom.  And when I say cocktails I mean vodka, and of course… caviar.

Central Park Boathouse Wedding : Paris & Nick

New York, NY - November 2, 2018



Paris & Nick were married in September 2018 holding their wedding ceremony and reception at the Loeb Boathouse in Central Park.


The boathouse has become to many one of the most iconic of NYC venues.  You’re quite literally in the center of the park and all of Manhattan.  Paris & Nick selected the equally notable Lotte New York Palace to get ready in and it really set the tone for the rest of the day.  You’ll see I was particularly inspired with this couple to incorporate a lot of black and white giving them a sleek New York feel.
