A BACKYARD WEDDING AT FRANKIES SPUNTINO

A WEDDING BRUNCH IN CARROLL GARDENS

Mingie and Takeshi’s day was split in half, between a sweet and intimate backyard wedding at Frankies Spuntino and a casual reception at Fawkner with a denim outfit and a collector baseball hat. I personally love when a couple finds ways to be fully themselves, with all its contradictions and many facets. Mingie and Tak’s day was very genuine, and to me that’s what made it so beautiful.

The wedding ceremony was beautiful and included the couple’s family and Mingie’s best friend, who played the cello as the bride walked down the aisle. Followed by the ceremony was a gorgeous brunch in the garden with cheese, bread, and olive oil (the French in me LOVES this!). The bride’s sister Juju and her boyfriend did most of the work at Frankies Spuntino by gathering flowers at a Park Slope deli the day prior to the big day to make homemade flower arrangement in mismatched vases. Juju was also Mingie and Tak’s officiant.

After a little break, they all headed to Fawkner in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn for a fun reception with all their friends. Mingie and Tak changed in their evening outfits, which included a gorgeous denim cowgirl outfit for the bride with her favorite Patsy Cline’s lyrics embroidered on it. They had delicious cakes and bar finger food, as well as a sweet video retracing their lives playing in the backroom. Fawkner was filled with love for those two.

A FALL ELOPEMENT IN PARIS AT GOLDEN HOUR

A Fall Elopement in Paris

Fall in Paris can be a very romantic time to get married, and I am so glad I managed to organize this shoot from across the ocean and capture all of its beauty. Half a dozen of amazing lady bosses gathered on that day to make Cécile and her fiancé Antoine look dapper and adorable.

More to come soon about this shoot, but for now I’ve got some unpacking to do after a month in Colombia!

A LOVELY AND CLOUDY DUMBO ENGAGEMENT SHOOT

A Cloudy Dumbo Engagement Shoot

Dumbo has become the most popular area for taking engagement and wedding photos in Brooklyn. Just go there on any given Saturday at any time of the day and you will run into dozens of couples in wedding attires, surrounded by photographers.

I personally never tire of Dumbo, because it has a myriad of photo opportunities. Shooting there is always different, and the challenge of looking for new backdrops and corners is an exciting one.

Yan and Yuki’s cloudy Dumbo engagement shoot was no exception. We played with the gloomy sky and the metallic colors of the city background. Yuki’s beautiful white dress blended well in the white sky as well. We shot until after the sun went down, when the sky is dark blue and reflects in the water. This “Blue Hour” gave some cooler tones to the images towards the end of the shoot, and it was beautiful to watch.

A STYLISH DIY WEDDING AT MAISON-MAY, BROOKLYN

SUKIE AND MIKE: A MAISON-MAY WEDDING ON A BEAUTIFUL OCTOBER DAY

Sukie and Mike’s DIY wedding was everything a craft lover could dream of.

It was a collaborative effort of the couple’s loved ones, with a wedding dress designed by Sukie’s best friend at Seek Collective, stationary designed by the Mike’s sister, and flowers put together by Sukie’s mother. Both moms performed during the reception – a hula dance for Sukie’s, a song by Mike’s- and the groom even sang a beautiful Beatles song for his bride as a surprise.

It is truly an honor to be a part of such a unique day. Sukie and Mike’s wedding looked like them, and I hope the pictures will translate that.

Congrats to the newlyweds!
