Pleasantville Synagogue Bat Mitzvah

May 25, 2016

Mazel Tov Matthea!  

A bat mitzvah is the blossoming of a girl into womanhood, and Matthea took it literally! Her floral dress was worthy of Monet, and a hand-painted garden bloomed on her and her brother’s tallit. The buttercream walls of the Pleasantville Community Synagogue were the perfect canvas for it all, and later, more gardens bloomed in Ball jars amid confetti-strewn tables at Yonkers’ Hudson-graced X2O restaurant. We were thrilled to get Matthea’s mom’s note thanking us for “the stunning photos,” but such stunning visuals made it a piece of cake— a powder-blue-iced Red Velvet cake to be exact.

Sands Point Wedding

May 20, 2016

Brooke and Jordan – Highway to Heaven:

The red-carpet-worthy frock, cascading blonde tresses, sparkling sea background: were we shooting a fashion spread? No, but Brooke and Jordan’s pre-wedding session could have been. The location, though, was Long Island not Malibu, and the road they traveled to get here wasn’t Hollywood Boulevard but the New Jersey Turnpike, where they rendezvoused while Brooke was still at college in Maryland. Jordan had already graduated, so for over two years they shared a rest-stop romance. These days flowers have replaced fumes at Brooke’s uncle’s gorgeous Sands Point, LI, property, where they’ll marry this fall. We’re sure it’s going to be a model affair.

Romantic Photo Session, Rockefeller Preserve

April 20, 2016

Trinidad & David – Coffee stirs things up

When David first posed the question “coffee, tea or me?” on a coffee line, Trinidad chose coffee. When he tried again two weeks later, she succumbed. On their first date, a stroll at Westchester’s Kensico Dam, they bonded over more than lattes. That coffee line was at Morgan Stanley, where they both worked, and soon their merger begot a new acquisition: romance! It took 10 years, but this summer, the contract becomes final. At their July wedding, we’re sure they’ll switch out coffee for champagne.

Save the Date Photo Session, Tarrytown, NY

February 12, 2016

Laura & Dan – Infinite sand, one stone

We’d all agree that proposals should be romantic, surprising, even teary. But fearful?   Not an emotion we’d strive for. But Laura felt them all when Dan held out a box on a San Diego beach four years after meeting.  The idea of marriage wasn’t frightening, the idea of dropping the ring in the sand was. Laura hit the Pause button until they were safely on solid ground. Fast forward to our save-the-date shoot at Rockefeller State Park, where they strolled the wooded trails, no sand in sight, the ring shining snugly on her finger.

Joan & Nathan Lyons & SPE

Back in the day Margaret studied with  Joan & Nathan in their photography program at the Visual Studies Workshop, vsw.org where she obtained her MFA. We were greatly pleased when they asked to use the portrait she took of them for the Society for Photographic Education’s SPE fundraising brochure.

Briarcliff Manor Wedding

February 6, 2016

Winnie and Billy – Moving farther, drawing nearer

They say love conquers all, and for Winnie and Billy, it certainly conquered geography. In 2013 they lived a block apart, but a year later, it was continents apart. Hong Kong may have divided them when Winnie returned there, but romance multiplied thanks to airplanes and Skype. Four plane trips later, they made their final travel plan: a one-way ticket to marriage. It was redeemed last December in a civil ceremony, and they’ll celebrate again in June at Cortlandt Manor’s Hollow Brook Golf Club. We assume there’ll be limos involved, not airplanes.

New Year’s Commission

January 21, 2016

Each holiday season we capture many family photos. This year we had a very special request by our very own, Congresswoman, Nita Lowey, to photograph her 2016 New Year’s greeting. It included her and her husband, Stephen and their 8 grand children. Needless to say the photo session was a blast. The added plus was that our card was sent to her mailing list of 4,000 with our photo credit too!
