Union Square Engagement Session: Jessica and Larry

We were blessed with beautiful weather for Jessica and Larry’s engagement shoot this past weekend – not a cloud in the sky which provided us with some epic lighting opportunities during the day portion of our engagement shoot but we conjured up our own lighting magic when the sun went down.  I am so thrilled to be part of Jessica’s and Larry’s most special day come this autumn.  You guys look gorgeous!

Huge thanks to Stephen Tang for the great assisting.

I was thrilled to shoot my first engagement session of the year with Carly and Robert – a fantastic time spent with an absolutely fantastic couple.  We hit a variety of places in midtown which included a stop at the MoMA.

Many thanks to my good friend and great photographer Kevin Ferguson for assisting!

Thank you Fearless for another award!

I am truly thrilled and honored to have received another Fearless Award (Collection 20).  This is a very big deal given that Fearless is one of the toughest international competitions for wedding photography.  There are about 10,000 image submissions during each Fearless Collection, of which, only 200-300 images are selected.  A big “Thank you” to Huy and the Fearless curator staff!

Indian Wedding: Nishita and Akhil

A heartfelt thank you to Ryan Brenizer who trusted me to document the first two days of this three-day Hindu wedding and then second shoot for him on the third day.  I still have memories of Nishita and Akhil’s wedding which took place in the sultry month of August in Somerset, New Jersey.  How could I not, this was my first Hindu wedding and it was an experience to remember as it was a culmination of beauty and intensity – each day consisted of several different rituals and mini ceremonies.  The mélange of colors, aromatic fragrances, and music all left such an indelible impression on my 2013 wedding season.

Day 1:  Mendhi

Day 2:  Vidhi and Sangeet

Day 3:  Wedding

 

Wedding planner:  Preeti Shah at Spotlight Style.

Wedding Venues:  Rasoi Banquet Hall and Double Tree Hotel (Somerset, New Jersey).
