Jadner + Adrienne {Wedding} | Hudson Valley, NY Wedding Photographer

From the moment we met, I knew that Jadner and Adrienne would be a blast to work for! And once you see their photos you will be able to feel the love that these two have for each other. They chose a beautiful country setting for their wedding day! The Tuthill House in Gardiner, NY offers a rustic but refined place to get married! The ladies got ready at an onsite beautiful home, while the guys got ready in another building right above their beautiful restaurant.

Enjoy this small glimpse into their wedding day!

Check out this spread!!!!!

How many can say that they’ve had their PHOTOGRAPHER start a soul train line??!!! Yup! I did it and I got sooo many great shots!!!

Thank you so much Jadner and Adrienne for entrusting Rachel and myself to capture these life lasting memories!!!!

If you’re getting married, I’d love to take you out for some coffee and learn more about your big day!!!!

Eric + Jennifer {Wedding} | Hudson Valley, NY Wedding Photographer

It’s an amazing feeling when you walk away from a business relationship with clients to a friendship relationship. I’m so happy to say that even though a couple of months have passed since she has gotten married, Jen and I text and see each other on a regular basis! Jen’s big day was crazy but beautiful. It rained that day but we made it work.

Everything about this union was beautiful. From the fact that she married her childhood friend who lived across the street from her to the blended family that has been created.

If you’ve followed my blog you will recall these two from their fun “basketball” engagement session done over the summer.

Here are some of my favorite photos from the day! WARNING: There are a lot of photos below but I had a lot of favorites. It was hard to narrow these down.

Joy and I went to high school together. I was so excited when she reached out to me to photograph her big day. She looked absolutely stunning and her husband adored her. It was a beautiful September day. You couldn’t have dreamed it any better. Here are some of my favorite photos of the day!

Brittany was my first wedding of the summer season and boy was it hot! And when I say hot, I mean almost passing out from heat exhaustion hot! Seeing as this was an outside wedding and reception, Miss EricaLee learned a few lessons, such as: keeping myself hydrated. I did not stop to drink at all most of the day but in my defense I didn’t want to miss anything.

Despite the heat, it was a beautiful wedding. Here are some of my favorite photos!

A Valentines Wedding {Orange County, NY Wedding Photographer}

She said she wanted a small gathering to remember the day with friends and family; and that’s just what it was. A few weeks ago, the day after valentines day, I had the honor of photographing a wedding reception for a couple of hours. I was ecstatic. Here a few photos that were highlights from that night.

Happy New Year!!!!

Fresh Start!

I hope all of you enjoyed the holidays! It was a bit busy for me even though I was on vacation from work. I had the opportunity of photographing another session. This time it was a Portrait Session. It was nice to shoot an older person since I had been shooting children recently. Her name was Tierra and she was quite the beaut!Collage1Done

I had a pretty laid back Christmas. One of the gifts that my husband gave to me was an old record player. I love vintage things!

It goes great with our records that are framed on the wall!

For New Years Eve, we celebrated by attending a beautiful wedding at my church. Although I wasn’t the photographer, I was able to snap a few photos that I’m sure she would appreciate.photo1Done

A Bronx Wedding {Orange County, NY Wedding Photographer}

“My beloved is radiant and ruddy, outstanding among ten thousand.” Song of Solomon 5:10

Last Saturday, I shot a wedding. A Bronx Wedding. I was born and raised in the Bronx but moved upstate when I was in Middle School. It was definitely nice being back where I grew up. One of my favorite parts of a wedding is the preparation before walking down the aisle. I’m not sure if it’s the same for guys but I know for women it’s so busy during the morning. The hair and make-up preparation is a lot of work and it’s sort of a bummer because the day goes by so fast. Here are few shots of the preparation for this beautiful bride.

I loved her flowers!!!
