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.

Wedding at the Ocean House in Westerly

Wedding in Westerly, Rhode Island

Who? : Heather + Bastiaan

What? : Outdoor beach ceremony and indoor ballroom reception at an oceanside resort

Where? : The Ocean House, Westerly, Rhode Island

When? : June 2017

The first time I photographed a wedding at this phenomenal venue, I knew I had to come back.  I am so glad that it was for this remarkable wedding.  Heather and Bastiian are marvelous together, and documenting them joining their two incredible families was a huge honor.  Heather has an incredible daughter, and Bastiaan has wonderful children as well, and combined they make an unbeatably awesome family.   From Heather’s delicate Monique Lhuillier gown to her daughter singing at the reception, the day was sunny, sunny perfection.
