NYC Corporate Headshot Photography


It was my pleasure to head to a well known ad agency on Madison Avenue to do some corporate head shots. These pictures are to be used in communications between their New York and London offices. I offer this service to companies looking to create a professional look and want a uniform set of images. The staff here are really colorful and had their own individual laidback style, which added to why i enjoyed taking these pictures. Anyone looking for a headshot package for their employees, please use the contact form at the end of this post. Thanks for reading!

Married:: Elita and Sheldon


J’ouvert Sunday 2012, I had the pleasure of documenting Elita and Sheldon’s wedding in Prospect Park, Brooklyn. I blogged some same day teasers a little while ago, but here are both mine and the couples favorites.

The couple had a peacock-purple and turquoise theme.

Elita and Sheldon decided on a “first look” before their ceremony. Sheldon, you are sharp!!

I positioned the bride so that she would not be seen in his peripherals once she got close, but that I could also capture the bridesmaids looking on in the distance. Perfect composition! This might be one of my favorite images of all time : )

I love the Hora, just as much as the guests!

When the bride saw this image, she giggled. Not only because of the obvious, but because a teenage girl was holding her chair up.

Rabbi Gloria, officiated the wedding. She made her mark at the ceremony, leading guests through Elita’s Jewish traditions and readings, yet keeping the simplicity of an intimate wedding in the park.

For me, the guest and family shot is the crowning moment of the reception. Everyone is together in one image and it ties the day together. Thank you Sheldon and Elita for allowing me to capture the personal moments of your wedding day. It was such a beautiful affair! My assistant and I hold it as one of the best weddings we have captured!

Mandy + David’s Brooklyn Wedding


This April, fellow photographer Anselm Scrubb, asked me to join him to shoot Mandy and David’s wedding. Here are a few of the images I shot that day.

We began our day at the Sheraton Downtown Brooklyn, in Mandy’s suite. Here are a few of her getting ready, or as I like to call it, the calm before the storm.

One of my favorites! Hair and Make-up gals going in on the bride, time is ‘a ticking!

I asked the Matron of Honor how she feels knowing that Mandy will be a married woman in just over an hour- this is what she came up with, lol

Another favorite! Mandy is stunning!

Dave and Mandy met and were married at The Brooklyn Tabernacle. The story of how they met, was told at least three times that day and every time i heard it , the story got better and better. Mandy and David both signed up for new member classes at the church. On the first day, David arrived late and there was only one seat left, next to Mandy, so he took it. At some point during the class, the instructor asked everyone to swap phone numbers with their neighbor. David asked Mandy for her number and they became friends. Over time, it lead to a relationship and then eventually an engagement. I would love to sit with these two and hear more about their courtship. It sounds so romantic- to find love where you least expect it! They both found God and each other on the same day.

Ava and Andrew’s Engagement Pics


So excited to finally share these!!! (squeal!)

Had to get that out of the way.

Anywho- Ava is former schoolmate of mine and of course we are friends on Facebook. She contacted me in April to see if I was available to shoot her and her fiancee’s engagements. We talked about locations, but from the start,  Ava had her shoot all mapped out in her head (i love this girl!). We decided on three different places that Ava and Andrew held dear to their hearts. What’s great about each of them is that all three of them have a different feel.

First off Tabare, a Uruguayan Restaurant in Williamsburg. This restaurant has a rustic, yet modern feel to it; aged wood panels and concrete tables. From the moment i saw pictures of this place, I knew that I wanted to have Andrew and Ava cozied up and just into each other, like no one else is around. And just a foreword, they didn’t even need the champagne the owners poured for them. These two just melted into each other : )

The next restaurant we visited was Kiwiana, right across from the Park Slope Food co-op. This venue was a brand new establishment, but had a vintage-y cottage feel to it. Tin ceilings, ornate wainscoting… I love, love, love the wallpaper, it reminds me of the house I grew up in London!

I love this series. the colors are so warm at Kiwiana-

The atmosphere here made it easy to giggle like no one is watching! BTW, we were on our second flute of Champagne…I have to go out with these two more often!

Then we popped over to Ample Hills Creamery in Prospect Heights. I should be ashamed of myself for not visiting this place before…ooooohh homemade ice cream less than 10 mins from my house. Ample Hills is bright, colorful and has a suburban / country feel to it.

The weather was so beautiful! Ideal conditions for a shoot. I don’t think we would have survived if it were like it is now in NYC, Chilly!

Before wrapping, up we headed on over to Prospect Park.

Can’t you just feel the love!!?? I told them to get in close, and boom! This pic looks like they are in the middle of a rain forest, right?
