I capture the unspoken — the glances, the silences — drawing from New York's pulse and the richness of global cultures. Every wedding is its own intricate narrative. Rooted in theatre and life's everyday rhythms, I document moments both transient and timeless.

Fall Wedding at Riverside Farm

Fall Wedding at Riverside Farm

Who? : Anna Lee + Bill

What? : Preparations, ceremony, and reception in a private Vermont barn wedding venue

Where?  Riverside Farm, Pittsfield, Vermont

When? : October 2018

A bride who has dedicated her career to caring for others, loves museums, and finds joy in travel.  A groom who dreams of owning his own BBQ restaurant and loves mountain bikes, backpacking, and camping.  Add these two amazing human beings together, bind their love with an unwavering faith, and pledge forever to each other with an engagement amidst the bluebonnets.    It’s only fitting that such joyous human beings say “I do” under the flawless Vermont fall foliage, surrounded by an unseasonably warm day that can only have been brought with them from Texas!  Anna Lee and Bill,  you’re both glorious rays of sunny Texas sunshine.  Thank you for making that fall Vermont day all the brighter!

Here are a few of my favorite images from their wedding:
