Some people leave an imprint on your heart and these two are just those kinds of people. We fell into an easy friendship immediately during their engagement session and their wedding was an absolute breath of fresh air during an otherwise busy/hectic season for us!! Melissa + Eli kept things intimate and true to their priorities (family + friends who are family, an elegant/stylish yet cozy environment, delicious cocktails, and damn good hamburgers!) Their ceremony was full of tears and laughter and beautiful words, they shared an ice cream sundae in place of a cake cutting, and had an unannounced first dance (pictured in the opening photo of this post!). Basically, their whole day was designed and celebrated with intention and it just made my heart so, so happy. (Also, those burgers were seriously really good, which made my belly happy).

Documenting this day was a joy to say the least and I am so thankful to have kept in touch with M +E! They have since welcomed what might possibly be the cutest tiny human ever and I can’t to watch their beautiful life unfold <3YES to both smashing glass at the end of their ceremony!!

You guys. Before this day I hadn’t shot an NYC City Hall wedding in YEARS and now it’s basically all I want to do!! Natalie + Diego were having a large destination wedding, but wanted to make their union official in NYC with their immediate families and I was so incredibly honored to be on hand to document all the love… These two had known each other since they were kids and had the sweetest, most loving connection!

Between the love and friendship between their families, Natalie’s chic dress, and the energy in the room at City Hall I was on cloud nine. Thank you, thank you to N+D for trusting me to document this fun and wildly special time in their lives. This job is an absolute gift and I am so thrilled to share these images…

I am fully aware that I am sounding like a broken record at this point, but WE WORK WITH THE BEST PEOPLE ON THE PLANET.

I only first met Amanda and Eric in person on the day of their wedding, but you never would’ve known as we all jumped right into hugs and easy conversation! Their wedding was on (I am pretty sure, literally) the hottest recorded day of 2019 and they handled the heat and humidity with so much grace…

This was my first time shooting at Wave Hill and I was completely blown away by the beauty of this space! Located in The Bronx, it’s a well maintained public garden complete with a gorgeous greenhouse and sweeping views of the Hudson and my associate and I were in absolute photo heaven 😉

Amanda and Eric hired the most fantastic team of vendors, the toasts had everyone doubled over in laughter, the details were magical, and the dance floor was packed. All in all, it was a really, really good day <3
