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 Madison Hotel

Wedding at the Madison Hotel

Who? : Rosalia + Brad

What? : Indoor winter wedding in a hotel greenhouse with a ballroom reception

Where? : The Madison Hotel, Morristown, New Jersey

When? : February 2018

I first met this remarkable groom at his sister’s wedding – and I swear it was only about a year ago.  It just goes to show that time moves in crazy ways, because his sister and her husband now have two children with one more on the way!  This wedding at the Madison Hotel brought together family and friends in one remarkable, snowy, cozy day.

It takes a special couple to brave possible inclement weather and have a winter wedding.  It takes an even more special couple to be willing to brave the sudden torrential downpour of snow for a few night portraits.  There is something so remarkable about starting your wedding ceremony with a bright sky and ending it with a flurry of puffy, sweet snowflakes.  Like this incredible duo, it was simply breathtaking.

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