Lorna + Sherwin Brooklyn, Dumbo Engagement

Hey friends! ive been so busy that ive completely neglected my blog for so long, i have sooooo much work i need to post up, but i just lack the energy to do so, thankfully i got a little bit of breathing room and ill be posting up more wedding work. Meet Lorna + Sherwin! Ive known and work with Lorna for about 2 years now, some months back she approached me on possibly shooting her engagement photos and you know i was delighted to do so! she pretty much let me decide on the location and i knew of some really cool walls down by the LES that i wanted to shoot in front of, after that we crossed the Brooklyn Bridge and into Dumbo, spent about 3.5 shooting and we had a blast!….love the Tulle skirt she pulled out for her shoot and let me not forget Sherwin was just one cool dude to work with! thank you guys for the wonderful time! :)

Julie + Tyrell @ The Huracan, Punta Cana

Hi Guys!

Ok bare with me on here, its been a while since I took the time to actually blog lol. Anyhow almost 2 years ago, my bro-in-law got hitched in Punta Cana and both Angie and I were part of the bridal party, on this day i got a taste of how awesome it is to actually shoot on the island, the immense stress and pressure that comes with being a photographer, literally seem to vanish behind the beauty of it all, this day I promised myself I will come back and shoot my own wedding on the island.

Fast forward to about a month and here I was once again!…this time i came wielding my cameras and having a blast doing so, with an amazing Bride and a singing groom, yes the man serenaded his bride during the reception!

Julie + Tyrell were referred to me by my sisnlaw whom as I stated earlier had gotten married at The Huracan Cafe in Punta Cana and is where Julie was planning to have her own wedding!. I of course jumped at the opportunity and after speaking with my her, she decided to book us! I couldnt have been any happier, Julie’s personality and mines sort of blended as if we had been friends for a while and knew the day of the wedding couldnt get any better, that was until i met her friends and family..lol. I ended up traveling alone to Punta Cana and surely thought i would be lonely, but the second I landed I met Julie’s uncle Manny, who btw is an incredibly talented bridal designer and who made Julie, not 1 but 2 stunning gowns! we had a 30 minute ride to the Majestic Colonial Resort and we immediately hit it off, all of a sudden I didnt feel all that alone, then I met Julie’s wonderful mom and I realized where Julie gets her charismatic and approachable personality from! the woman who had never met me, rushed me with a hug, kiss and a beer! It was a party from the start and I was treated as more than just a vendor, I was treated as a friend of the family. Thank you Julie + Tyrell, thanks to your mothers, family and friends for trusting me as your photographer and hope you guys enjoy these photos.

To finish it off THANK YOU Anna who I met on my broinlaws wedding 2 years ago as the hair/makeup and who also did Julie’s…Ive worked with many vendors in my years as a photographer, this woman left a huge impression on me and i highly recommend her to anyone and a huge THANK YOU to Nati who made Julie’s dream a reality and planned everything with her from flowers, chairs, cake, decor, etc every little detail that made this such a beautiful wedding and made my job a piece of cake with how organized and pretty everything was.
