Lydia and Elan // Long Beach Elopement Photographer // Alegria Hotel Wedding Photography

Lydia and Elan surrounded themselves with their closest family and friends to seal their relationship in a beautiful elopement/wedding ceremony.

Everything about the day was highly personal to them, and beautifully done.

Elan made the chuppah under which they took their vows.

They walked each other down the aisle and their children stood up for them as witness.

Everything about their wedding was unique to them and simply lovely (as are they).

I love the adorable way they stole glances at each other, and gravitate towards each other throughout the day.  The way Lydia looks at Elan during the ceremony, you wouldn’t guess that they have been together for 9 years…it’s the sweetest thing that keeps their relationship looking fresh.

Thank you for choosing me as your wedding photographer at Allegria in Long Beach!

Kelly and Tim’s Beach Wedding // Sunny Atlantic Beach Club // Long Island Wedding Photographer

After what seemed like a month of rain, Kelly and Tim’s wedding in early June turned out to be a cloudless perfect sunny day.  I started off with the ladies at the Allegria Hotel in Long Beach, NY.  We started with a relaxed atmosphere of the ladies getting ready, popping some champagne and giggling with the flower girl .

We headed out to the boardwalk for a few shots before they boarded the bus from Camelot Limos to head over to Sunny Atlantic for the best part of the day!


My girl Kamila was with the boys for a short while at Tim’s family home in Franklin Square.  After the ceremony we headed down to the beach for a few more bridal party photos and the all important romantics! I may have literally been up to my knees in the ocean for some of these photos 🙂

Kelly, beyond gorgeous! The staff at Sunny Atlantic was so accommodating to allow me access to the cake before they were actually ready to bring it out!  Thank you guys! ❤ Congratulations you guys!

Kristin and Shawn // Long Island Engagement // Robert Moses

Kristin and I had initially met on FaceTime and got so excited talking about all the wedding plans that her battery ran out before we had the chance to finish going over everything!

After 2 failed attempts to schedule our engagement shoot, this last minute meet up turned out to be magical.  Just wait until you see that sunset!  I can’t wait for their wedding this September!

Kristin is the sort of person, that once you speak to her you feel as though you are in her inner circle.  Shawn is a regular jokester who had me laughing our whole shoot.

Albums // Long Island Wedding Photographer

Long Island Wedding Photographers, Long Island Wedding Photography

You’ve probably heard it before; it’s made into memes and gifs and blog posts galore, the best way to preserve your images is to print them and display them.

Well, have I got some gorgeous ways to display them!  Introducing two new albums!!

The first one is a leather, writers notebook type album with water color paper pages.  It’s rustic and classic and really different, but gorgeous.

The second is a classic album. This comes in linen and leather/leatherette and SO MANY COLORS!  The paper is a matte lustre that really shows off your images.  That cameo cutout on the front? It can be a square or circle and displays another image of your choosing!

I’m so excited to add these to the “family”

Anesha and Jeff’s Wedding at Crescent Beach Club, Bayville Long Island

Anesha and Jeff got married on a gorgeous August day at Crescent Beach Club in Bayville.  Nothing like a private beach wedding for two beach lovers!

These two looked at each other and smiled…no BEAMED all day.

I love how Jess and I took similar prep photos

Lori and Jason // Long Island Wedding // Villa Lombardi’s

From the moment I pulled up to Lori’s parents home and saw her made up, still in sweats but completely made up, my jaw was on the floor.  Gorgeous inside and out 🙂

I feel like I’ve been waiting forever for Lori and Jason’s wedding at Villa Lombardis.  I was in contact with Lori throughout the process, talking about all the aspects of their day and just making all the tweaks to make it run as smoothly as possible.

And it completely did.

Michelle and Brian // Fire Island Wedding // Palms

I’ve been a few places this year I’ve never been before, Fire Island Ocean Beach is like an oasis away from the hustle and bustle of “regular” life.  Michelle and her sisters were getting ready at the Palms Suites while the sun and the clouds were battling to see who would prevail. 2015-07-02_001 2015-07-02_002

Michelle’s smile and personality are infectious and charming.  I was so excited to be able to be here for this celebration.2015-07-02_003

My second shooter Leslie (of Leslie Renee Photography, my neighbor and a wonderful family photographer) was hanging with the guys while I was with the girls. Love this classic shot of Brian. 2015-07-02_013Girls and boys preceremony2015-07-02_012Three frames, the beginning of the ceremony, Michelle figuring out it was about to pour and then running for cover!2015-07-02_004We finished the remainder of the ceremony under the tent, which was fortunate because it started to POUR as soon as the minister began the ceremony again. 2015-07-02_005 2015-07-02_006

I convinced Michelle and Brian to bear with me for a few minutes to take advantage of the island for pictures despite the rain.  Luckily she brought along a rainbow umbrella and we ducked for cover under porticos wherever we could.  Thank you guys for trusting me!  2015-07-02_007 2015-07-02_008 2015-07-02_009 Some fun with the bridal parties…
