The Caporale family had me come to their house 3 years ago to photograph them. I never laughed so hard at a shoot before! Their boys, Christian and Cameron, were 8 and 4 at the time and they reminded me so much of our sons at those ages. Fast forward to last week. Except for […]

Alie’s mom, Michele, did a lot of the leg work for them since the Novitch’s lived in Virginia Beach, VA up until one week before their wedding.

Delivering the bride and groom’s goodie bag is the final step of their wedding experience. For me, this is a bittersweet moment. I worked with Michael and Emma for close to 15 months, in constant contact with them throughout this timeframe. To think that after all that time, I’d just send them an online gallery […]

This couple looked like movie stars; Michael in his classic custom-made black tuxedo, and Emma in a stunning white slip dress with a plunging back. The groom couldn’t take his eyes […]

Back in January, on an icy, bitter Sunday, I was set up for a bridal show at The Hall of Springs in Saratoga Springs, NY. I remember speaking briefly to Jaclyn’s mom, Mary Beth, inquiring about her daughter’s wedding date. I asked if she had a photographer yet. She said no – I said you […]
