Royal Palace, Elmsford, NY Wedding

April 3, 2018

Chloefaith and Daren  – Share the Wealth –

We’ve seen our share of rituals during wedding shoots, but this was a new one: the Money Dance. An old ethnic custom, guests pay to dance with the bride and groom, and this couple’s generous guests showered them with bills. Not a typical accessory on a strapless ball gown, but there wasn’t much that was typical here. Talk about globalization: Chloefaith is Filipino, Daren African-American, and their reception was at an Indian restaurant. They met at church when Daren joined the choir, and their harmony still soars loud and true.

Sleepy Hollow, New York Nuptials

March 21, 2018

Karen and Matthew – No place like home –

We feel emotion at all the weddings we shoot, but this one was personal. The lovely bride was our daughter’s high school classmate, and her dad, our son’s soccer coach. And the venue was essentially in our backyard: our hometown of Sleepy Hollow. Karen and Matthew returned here from their home in Virginia to say their vows in her childhood Church of the Magdalene. Okay, so there was rain– it didn’t stand a chance against the sunshine in our hearts.

Harvest on Hudson Wedding

January 19, 2018

Stephanie and Joe – Cafeteria Crush:

Most courtships unfold in restaurants or movie theaters, not a school cafeteria, but Joe was up for the challenge. Stephanie was a nutritionist there, and he’d take breaks from his social studies classroom to flirt with her. It took many visits, then 10 “friendship” dates, but she finally acknowledged a romance. The rest of the school did too after the principal spotted them at a restaurant! There was nothing secretive about their August wedding, with plenty of co-workers celebrating at Hasting’s riverside Harvest on Hudson. We give their story a definite A plus.

Grand Central Romance – Margaret and Zack

February 4, 2017

Galloping toward the finish

It’s no more horsing around for Margaret and Zack, who plan to wed this July in New Jersey. First meeting at the 2009 Kentucky Derby while students in Louisville, their romance became a race as well, flitting through several states between grad school and careers. Things slowed to a trot in 2015, when Margaret joined Zack in Atlanta, and they announced their engagement during last year’s Derby festivities. Seeing their joy during our shoot at NYC’s Grand Central, we’ll place our bets on their happily ever after.

Tarrytown House Wedding Celebration

November 30, 2016

Laura and Daniel – Long-term forecast: SUN

Most couples face obstacles, but weather usually isn’t one of them. Darkening skies threatened Dan’s beach proposal, and stormy ones threatened their wedding, but inside elegant Tarrytown House last October, all was sunshine. Laura beamed in strapless lace, bridesmaids shone in scarlet, and nieces and nephews formed a vivid parade. Watching the couple’s first dance to John Legend’s “All of Me,” we forecast only blue skies ahead.

Sands Point, Long Island Wedding

September 20, 2016

Brooke and Jordan –  A Model Wedding

When we shot this couple’s engagement photos, we couldn’t imagine them looking any more celebrity-gorgeous. Well, we were wrong! The Long Island Sound backdrop, the sun-streaked sky, the bride in strapless lace, bridesmaids in flowing powder blue… we felt like paparazzi! Did that sailboat just happen to float by after the ceremony, backlit by sunset? Our photos pretty much took themselves, including at the tented reception, where the couple danced to Elvis Presley’s “Can’t Help Falling in Love.” How could anyone not, with a setting this stunning.

A Grand Finale

August 6, 2016


Judit and Jeff:

We love a happy ending, and that’s what we got shooting Judit and Jeff’s Pocantico wedding. The first act was their save-the-date shoot, and now, the finale at the Chagall-bedecked Union Church. We couldn’t write a better script: their storyline includes an alcohol-fueled bar mishap, an apology, and months of long-distance dating. The climactic episode at Tarrytown’s DoubleTree Hotel starred the bride, stunning in a lacy mermaid gown, swaying with her groom to Rod Stewart’s “Have I Told You That I Love You.” Kleenex, please!

Candlewood Inn Wedding

August 5, 2016

Trinidad and David – Coffee, Tea, and finally Me:

For Trini and David, the walk to the altar was a bit more successful than the walk to the office coffee line, that’s where they first met, and back then she rejected his advances. This time, her response was a firm “I do.” The surroundings were a bit different as well: a summertime garden at Connecticut’s lakeside Candlewood Inn. And we loved other differences: the letters they wrote to each other to read aloud, the maid of honor singing an original song, and the bride’s dress-designer brother removing the gown’s bottom tier for the reception—the better for dancing those salsas and merengues!

Hollow Brook Golf Club Wedding

July 31, 2016

Winnie and Billy  –  Who’s Counting?

They say the third time’s a charm, but so were Winnie and Billy’s first two weddings—to each other! We shot their second- a civil ceremony in Briarcliff, but missed their first in Hong Kong, Winnie’s hometown. They courted long distance after Winnie returned there after they met in Boston, but this time around, her family returned the favor to attend the celebration at Cortlandt’s Hollow Brook Golf Club. Winnie’s white lace cap-sleeved gown was pure American, but later, she was just as stunning in traditional Chinese red, the color of luck. Surrounded by family and friends, we can attest that this couple has had plenty.

Miami Heat

July 1, 2016

Judit and Jeff:

The story reads like a rom-com script. A hot Miami bar, an exotic blonde reporter, vacationing buddies, an unwanted advance, an apology, long-distance separation, triumphant love. Judit, Argentina-born, was that reporter; Jeff, a visiting New Yorker apologizing to her for his alcohol-fueled friend who had touched her leg. It seems the apology was accepted, a year and a half later that included 7 months of long-distance dating, we shot their pre-wedding photos. The Hollywood ending happens this summer at Pocantico’s Chagall-windowed Union Church and Tarrytown’s DoubleTree Hotel.
