It was a pleasure to capture Nicole and Eric’s micro wedding at Ramblewood Country Club. Although they had to slightly adjust their plans, the day was really sweet and easygoing. Close friends and family gathered to watch them tie the knot, then shared dinner and some beers. The big party with extended family and more friends is happening next year, and it is sure to be a blast!
According to Kurt Vonnegut, NYC, aka the Big Apple, The City that Never Sleeps, or “Skyscraper National Park”. No matter how you slice it, New York City is truly a magical place. The City is a great place for so many reasons, there is so much amazing art, beautiful fashion, creative music, food from every culture and country, and best of all is a great place for love. It was a pleasure to meet up with Sean and Lexie in Manhattan. We met at their very cool apartment overlooking midtown, a few blocks away from The Empire State Building for some portraits. They both love the living room view and wanted a creative way to remember it forever. From there they took me to their former apartment’s rooftop, all but a hundred yards away, the place where Sean proposed to Lexie. We had some fun and recreated the scene in the same spot before heading to Central Park. Sean walks in the park often and thankfully he was able to keep me updated on the state of bloom in the park so that we were able to pick the perfect time for their engagement session. It was nice to get to know them a little better while taking pictures in the park.
We have the most beautiful cherry blossom trees in our yard. Every year when they bloom, I can’t help but pick up my camera. Each year I try to capture them in a unique way. This year I thought it would be cool to make the blossoms look like paintings with the help of my Fractals I just love using these modifiers to create images. They are lightweight, durable, and easy to hold. The glass is crystal clear and easy to focus through and in the right situation, take a boring image and turn it into something unique and dynamic.
Manhattan is easily one of the best places on earth to create images. Around every corner, there is an opportunity, an angle, or some architecture worth framing up.
There is something kind of magic about being at Baseball diamond at dusk.
Dusk is the best time to take pictures. You can use any subject and it will be beautiful, so long as it’s backlit.
Pro tip: Always have the sun behind your subject.
Ahh, summertime is here! A new season of baseball is upon us. New memories, amazing moments and lots of fun at the ball field.
Spring is such a colorful time of year. I just wanted to try a new take on the blooming season. More sights from the season on the way, the next post will be in color!
Just some random snaps from a location scout at Gravity Hill Farm
New Hope is a really cool town. If you haven’t had the pleasure of visiting this rad little town on the Delaware River, I highly recommend it. There are funky shops and cool restaurants, a nice view of the River, walking distance from Lambertville, ( another really cool town), and best of all, always good vibes. It was the perfect setting for Kayla and Daves’s engagement session. We walked around and took advantage of all angles while chatting and having a nice time.
I look forward to their Memorial Day weekend wedding at Hotel du Village!
