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.

Where? 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge

When? : September 2018

As a decade-long resident of Brooklyn, it’s no secret that this borough is my favorite.  If I had to narrow down my favorite places in incredible Brooklyn, Brooklyn Bridge Park would almost always come out on top.  I love the gorgeous views of the Manhattan skyline, the too-numerous-to-count locations for wedding and engagement portraits, and the amazing neighborhood that continues to grow and thrive.  What better place to have a wedding?  Add to this awesome spot two marvelous human beings, a team of tremendous vendors, and an immeasurable sweetness and you’ve got the perfect summer wedding.

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