India House Wedding : Sarah & Ariel

New York, NY - February 19, 2020

A June wedding at India House in New York, NY.


 I’ve known Sarah for a decade so it was especially nice to get the chance to photograph her wedding this past summer!  Many of my friends from grad school were there which makes for a fun event to shoot.


Dating back to the 1830’s, India House is buried in a sea of skyscrapers in the Financial District of Manhattan with the ever so perfect address “1 Hanover Sq”.  Today a private club, it offers a number of iconic rooms which lead guests from the ground floor, up a flight for cocktails and then to the top floor ballroom for dinner.  A short stroll from the waterfront, India House is ideally located near many hotels and opportunities for portraiture.  


I was so excited that Sarah chose Design by Ahn for her decor because they are always one my favorite florists in New York.  They perfectly blend the natural, organic look that’s become popular with something that is composed and classic.  I’m just not someone who notices flowers on a day to day basis and Designs by Ahn is always a vendor I notice.



Green Building Wedding : Alyssa & Brett

Brooklyn, NY - February 13, 2020

A late summer Green Building wedding in Brooklyn, NY.


On the most quintessentially perfect street corner in Brooklyn, Alyssa & Brett were married in the distressed brick walled space of the Green Building featuring a ceremony and cocktail hour with friends & family in the open air courtyard. Just steps away lie a number of great backdrops which made their portrait session a piece of cake.

Old Field Club Wedding : Jess & Vin

East Setauket, NY - February 4, 2020

Jess & Vin’s East Setauket, NY, Old Field Club wedding was such a great example of how to take the typical construct of a wedding and make it entirely your own.  Getting ready at the Stony Brookside B&B, you really could get the sense of this being a reunion of friends, family and the marriage of two who are totally in sync.  With a ceremony that began with a guided meditation for all guests in attendance, you immediately knew this was going to be a unique wedding.
