This week I had the privilege of photographing Tiffany and her new hubby Aaron on their wedding day! I’ve known Tiffany for many years. She was the first person I met in college, though we didn’t actually meet on campus. We met at the local SDA church since both our parents insisted we stop there before even stepping foot on campus! After our initial meeting, we quickly learned that we had more than just Adventist parents in common – we lived in the same building! From there, our friendship blossomed. But life (as it often does) took us on different paths. But thank goodness for things like Facebook and Twitter! We reconnected and learned that we had yet another thing in common – photography! But even though Tiffany’s an extremely talented photographer, she couldn’t possibly shoot her own wedding – that’s where I came in! Tiffany and Aaron decided to have a small wedding ceremony at New York City Hall, followed by a fun day of photos at the various spots that held special meaning to their relationship. The whole session was a blast! Even though the day started off with a monsoon like storm, it finally stopped raining and we were able to take pictures in so many amazing places throughout the city! We even went as far as the heart of Brooklyn, to the corner where they met each other for the first time! I enjoyed watching these two love birds interact on and off the camera! As you can see from the photos, they are not only a gorgeous couple, they are head over heels in love! I predict many, many happy years together!
This weekend I had the opportunity to photograph a very special family…..my family!! We decided to do our annual beach outing, except that this time around I brought my camera along for the ride. I wanted to get some family portraits on the beach, so we all coordinated outfits and waited around for the midday sun to settle for our photo shoot. With a family this large, pulling off this photo shoot was no walk in the park, especially when there’s such a short window of opportunity before the sun sets. Luckily, they were all good sport (well…some more that others!) and we were able to take pictures of all the individual families (plus a group shot) without a hitch! Even though we have many beautiful memories together, I think this day will go down in the books as a truly special moment in time! Here are some of my favorite photos from the day:
This is a picture of my friend’s daughter! She was just too cute in her Tom Ford look-a-like shades that I had to snap a quick photo. At the time, I didn’t realize that I captured a bit of the surrounding cityscape or myself in the reflection! However, I kinda like that about the picture now!
