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.

Summer elopement at Brooklyn Bridge Park

Summer elopement at Brooklyn Bridge Park

Who? : Guy + Jamie

What? : Manhattan City Hall ceremony with portraits on the waterfront in Brooklyn

Where? : Brooklyn Bridge Park, Brooklyn, New York

When? : May 2018

As a wedding photographer, being hired by another wedding photographer is a huge honor.  Guy and Jamie had the perfect New York wedding day : a first look in a pretty park, saying “I do” in the historic City Clerk’s Office, a few quick family pictures on the city street, and then off to Brooklyn for portraits with the views of Manhattan in the distance.  Simple, sweet, and oh so just right!

Here are just a few of my favorite images of the day:
