Aryn & Sal | Brooklyn, New York Wedding Photographer

First I have to say how much I absolutely adore Aryn. She is an amazing, loving, and caring person who is super organized and it showed on her wedding day. Aryn is a teacher and Sal is a fireman; what a couple! I have been looking forward to this day since the engagement shoot over a year ago.

Aryn looked HOT HOT HOT! What a beautiful bride! Everyone kept saying she looked like a doll. Her headpiece was custom made to match her dress, and it was just awesome!

Aryn's dad was awesome. You could see emotion in his eyes as he watched his little girl getting ready. He had the cutest button in his jacket along with a note of the cash to be dished out that day. I love it! Did I mention his name is also Sal?! Sweet.

Aryn's Matron of Honor Tina is beautiful and is such an awesome person. What a great friendship they have! Gotta love the face Aryn is making here. She cracks me up. This family has the "Sal face" and the many faces of Aryn to keep them entertained!

Sal looked so handsome with those dimples showing all night. He was all grins from the moment Aryn walked down the aisle.

It was absolutely freezing out side so everyone moved at top speed to the party bus and car.

One of my favorite images from the church. I love how Sal is looking at her while she puts the ring on his finger. And there go the dimples!

The room was stunning with a beautiful view.

Aryn makes the best faces. She is so expressive and it makes her even more fun to photograph. It reminds me of me. I am good for a few fun and crazy faces at any given time.

There were so many lovely ladies at the reception. This photo reminds me of the America's Next Top Model photo that is released at the beginning of each new season and Aryn is Tyra all front and center.

Ok... so you haven't been to a wedding reception until you experience the groomsmen tying their ties together and playing jump rope. REALLY!! I had a ball watching these guys jump rope, and even a few brave ladies jumping in their heels.

NEW YOOOORK concrete jungle where dreams are made of... I am pretty sure that is the song that was playing when I took this photo. Am I correct Aryn? Everyone, including me, went crazy when Empire State of Mind played.

It was freezing outside and we were right on the waterfront. We probably spent 2 minutes flat taking a few photos outside of the venue. It was definitely worth the next 2 shots!

Aryn & Sal thanks so much for making me a part of your big day!

Catch Me If You Can | In Atlanta | Brooklyn Portrait Photographer

Here goes another wonderful family I photographed in Atlanta! I have to say that this little cutie took the grand prize for the fastest little boy I have ever photographed. He made me work hard! As soon as he saw the camera he would bolt like lightening. I wish I had half of his energy because I wouldn't have to sleep for a week! Thanks for eventually letting me capture that cute little face of yours! I had fun and a great workout at the same time!

Boston Baby in Brooklyn | Brooklyn Portrait Photographer

Those eyes pulled me in the minute I met Baby J. He is such a sweet and happy baby whose parents love him so very much. Both Mom and Dad shower him with hugs and kisses. I love to see fathers showering their sons with kisses! Dad is from Boston so Baby J is an automatic Red Sox fan in Brooklyn! I can see him watching games in the Green Monster any day now!

Beautiful Baby S | In Atlanta | New York Portrait Photographer

I went all the way to Atlanta to meet this beautiful little lady and her intense eyes! She is one of the sweetest babies I have ever met and I miss her already! I am swamped getting out holiday goodies to all of you but Mom asked so very nicely for a little sneak peak!

Holiday Glam Party! | Brooklyn, New York Portrait Photographer

Back by popular demand!

One Big Beautiful Family | Brooklyn, New York Family Portrait Photographer

When Duane called me asking to have a photo session two days later it was a huge run around to get it all in place. The fact that all of his family were together and he would be off to Afghanistan soon after made it hard for me to say no. I really enjoyed my time with this beautiful family. It's funny that Duane thought his parents would give me trouble because they were both awesome! Thanks for choosing me out of that long list ;)

I asked Mom how she handled having three boys, and she let me know that the trick is to have more than one!!

There is an old photo of Dad with his groomsmen from their parents wedding day that Duane wanted to recreate. I love it! Now they have a photo that tells a story, that tells another story!

Carmen & Mike- The Moment | Nasilele Photography Brooklyn, NY Wedding Photographer

Carmen and Mike's rooftop ceremony was amazing. It was so sweet that I couldn't hold back the tears. I love seeing grooms tear up when their bride walks up the aisle. Between the heartfelt vows and the tears of joys the ceremony was just gorgeous!
