Williamsburg Hotel Wedding Feature on Catalyst Wedding Co. | Styled Shoot

This post has been a long time coming and I am so happy to announce that this editorial has been published on Catalyst Wedding Co.! Catalyst Wedding Co. is all about celebrating the diversity of the human race and celebrating people and couples of all shapes, sizes, races, religions, genders (or lack thereof), and anything else you can imagine. SO to be published on a site that supports what I believe in so fully was an honor, and one I hope to have a gain someday. 

I had the amazing opportunity to photograph this wedding editorial earlier in 2017 and it was a huge project. We ended up with 22 vendors and I am forever thankful to everyone who helped bring this vision to reality. We were all so inspired by the style and the vibe of the new Williamsburg Hotel in Brooklyn and this stylish and glam editorial was the end result of the inspiration.

Styled Rhinebeck, NY Farm & Meadow Boudoir | Boudoir

On the way back from Veronika & Ben's Upstate NY Barn wedding I stopped in Rhinebeck to photograph some fabulous Sweet Caroline Styles bodysuits styled with West Village Tribe Jewels on the amazing Lili, Gabbi, and Madison. I was so happy to be able to shoot creatively with these fabulous models and it was the perfect way to end a fabulous work weekend in Upstate NY. Enjoy the beautiful landscapes and these images that I love so very much!

Bodysuits- Sweet Caroline Styles

Gather & Grow Workshop | Styled Shoot

When I first found out that my dear friend Sophie was going to be co-hosting the Gather & Grow workshop in NYC the first thing I did was ask how I could help. The fact that she had everything pulled together led me to my second question: Can I come? 

Now if you know Sophie's work you know that we have different styles. I'm dark and moody and she's light and airy. However, if you know her work you also probably know that she is amazing at what she does and she can put together something beautiful flawlessly. I wanted to take the amazing opportunity to challenge myself to capture something outside of my usual style and make it feel more like my usual work. I also took the opportunity to get to create something more personal and shoot hybrid- both digital and film. I have loved film since my dad gifted me one of his cameras from when he was in high school. I can say without a doubt that said camera changed my life. Anyways I see film right now as a luxury. I don't get a lot of clients interested in film, but I am hoping to incorporate it into my work more and more. I hope you enjoy these photos and make sure to check out all of the amazing vendors that helped make this incredible!

Lauren Fair Photography Workshop | Wedding

Hello all! I'm officially back in the tri-state area for the time being and am so excited to catch up on blog posts, Facebook updates, Instagram posts, website updates, and start some new projects! This is the first of many blog posts to come so I hope you enjoy and stay tuned!

Now onto the photos. On August 11th I was lucky enough to attend Lauren Fair Photography's ‪‎Love Affair the Workshop. I learned from one of the finest wedding photographers out there, met some really inspiring people, and had the opportunity to take photos of a gorgeous styled shoot created by amazing vendors with an inspiring couple to boot. Huge thanks to the vendors Sandpiper & Co.Maggpie Vintage RentalsOleander Florals & EventsTrue Beauty Marks, and Lovely Bride.

Also as you'll be able to see the couple, Andrea and Jeremiah, have so much love between them. They are a Lauren Fair Photography couple after their wedding a few years ago and (believe it or not!) had a baby less than a year before this! A + J thank you so much for laying your love out there for us to photograph. You two are something special :)
