Aly & Jeff Jakubowski’s Longfellows wedding was an intimate affair, with family and close friends present. Together for 10 years, Aly & Jeff knew they didn’t want a lot of fuss. Rather, they wanted their guests to be out on the dance floor and ripping it up all night long. To ensure that, they had […]

There are not enough words to describe Bri & Mike Santagato’s Mansion Inn wedding this past October!! From the skull embroidered on the back of Bri’s getting ready shirt, to the hinged coffin ring box, to the skeleton couple on their invitations – you get the theme, right? These two were (are) the most down-to-earth, […]

Cathy and Joey Dufkin’s wedding at 90 State in Albany was like a scene out of ‘An Officer and A Gentleman!’ Joey surprised Cathy by wearing his Marine military blues for their church ceremony. The two of them looked so regal in their timeless, elegant finery, there wasn’t a bad picture of them all day […]

Prepping for the Waldorf/Santabarbara Fairways of Halfmoon wedding, I had to keep in mind Beth and Paul were focused on their families most of all. A second marriage for each, their children and Paul’s grandchildren played a huge role in the festivities. A morning brunch wedding, Beth and Paul really wanted all of the photos […]

Meeting with Katie and Ryeley Kuykendall a week ago to give them their wedding day goodie bag seemed so strange. Normally I deliver this within 6 weeks of the wedding date, which was October 13th. They told me to take my time – they had busy schedules with work/teaching/coaching responsibilities/honeymoon plans, etc… So, a few […]

I can’t wait to meet with Michael and Mia Levanites to give them their wedding goodie bag!! These 2 have been so appreciative of everything – texts/emails/phone calls – they’re going to lose their minds when they get to actually hold something tangible!! And having them understand the editing process of a wedding? And not […]

Katie and Ryeley Kuykendall’s Avon-By-The-Sea, NJ wedding was Jeff’s and my first sibling wedding. Last September, we photographed Katie’s sister, Susan’s, wedding. At the end of the night, as we were saying good night to everyone, Katie asked if we traveled for weddings. She and her fiance were looking for a wedding photographer. Jeff and […]

Michael and Mia Levanites’ wedding at Settles Hill in Altamont was one for the record books! Everything was thrown at us during their wedding; from a last minute 2nd shooter, to a sudden downpour right before the bride and groom portraits, to cold temperatures blowing in and forcing us to shoot as fast as possible. […]

I’ve said it every time I meet with ‘my’ bride and groom for the final time (in the wedding experience, NOT forever!), that in-person delivery of their Goodie BagĀ  just makes me feel so happy! The Gordon’s did not disappoint either! I love when both are present too, to share in the moment, and take […]
