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 Wedding at Cipriani 42nd Street

Summer Wedding at Cipriani 42nd Street

Who? : Abigail + Matt

What? :Synagogue wedding and indoor reception in a converted bank building

Where? : Cipriani 42nd Street

When? : May 2018

So far this summer has been full of converted bank venues and rainy days!  Thankfully the rain held off for this particular event, and I’m so glad it did!  This warm, wonderful couple are as funny as they come.  They got married surrounded by their equally funny families, collegiate improv teams, and some gorgeous summery decor.  From the nonstop laughter in the bridal prep room to the groom’s brother’s toast delivered mostly in rap, the whole day was fun, funny, and bright from start to finish.  This summer wedding at Cipriani 42nd Street was practically perfect in every way!
