A COZY WINTER WELCOME!
A COZY WINTER WELCOME!
I had the EXTREME honor of photographing this South Africa wedding with one of my closest pals, Alicia Swedenborg! Admittedly, this was a little while back, but I wanted to give her the chance to share and publish this wedding first. You’ll find other posts from our adventure at these links:
But today I’m excited to share these wedding portraits of Candice and Justin! We photographed their wedding in the town of Nottingham Road, and then continued our journey up to the Drakensberg Mountains for photos in their wedding dress and suit & tie!
These two are the absolute sweetest, and were so welcoming of Alicia and I on their journey. It was lovely to witness different cultures and traditions, but also to capture the same beautiful love that brings couples together around the world!
Even a little splashing in the water? Heck yes – for the photos of course!
Candice and Justin, your wedding day (and week) is one that will always remain at the very top of my memories and day-dreams! It was an absolute pleasure to get to know you both, and your country! I wish you all the very best in this lifetime together!
And Alicia, my dear friend, I thank you for sharing this once-in-a-lifetime trip with me. We have travelled to some of the craziest, coolest weddings together – photographed in snowstorms, apple orchards, Sonoma vineyards and the Indian Ocean together. I can’t wait to see where our friendship goes next!
SO exciting to be featured on Real Simple.com this past week!
The article features seven of the biggest trends for 2015 weddings, and I’m loving that my clients are leading the way!
Erica & Greg were married this past September at Topnotch Resort in Stowe, Vermont, and what an incredible weekends in the Green Mountains it was! Stowe has long been one of my favorite towns in Vermont, and I used to work for the ski mountain back in college. Being able to capture weddings in such a romantic place is just the bee’s knees! (yeah, I said that) Topnotch Resort made for a gorgeous wedding destination for this NYC couple!Erica & Greg were already glowing on the evening of their rehearsal dinner, and the sunset worked its magic for us as we snapped a few photos. Rehearsals are a favorite of mine for the ability to capture couples and families in a more casual environment, but also to have the chance to meet all the weekend’s VIPs before the big day!The next morning brought a hefty pouring of rain, but you wouldn’t know it on the inside! Great day for sledding around the house?The rain dampened ceremony plans, but a quick change under the tent was perfect! And just in time, the skies transitioned into that dynamic post-storm glow we all know and love for photos!Always a blast when a wedding guest hops on stage – this guy was incredible!Huge congrats to Erica, Greg, and your fantastic family and friends! I hope your first months of married life have been a wonderful continued celebration!

I’ve been feeling mighty festive this holiday season, and nothing says CHRISTMAS quite like shopping for a Christmas tree on the streets of New York City!
I met up with Jessie and Pete last weekend for some engagement photos in their Upper West Side neighborhood. We walked the park, we waited in line for Levain Bakery cookies (worth it!)… and this! They were planning to grab a tree at some point later in the day, but well, I invited myself along ;-)
Jessie and Pete will be married this coming August at the adorably rustic Bourne Farm in Falmouth, MA. Stay tuned for more from our New York City engagement session in a later blog post! Can’t wait to celebrate with these two – the kind of love that’s darn easy to photograph!
