Wedding : Rona + Kivanc – Hopewell Valley Vineyards

Meet Rona + Kivanc. Our client/photographer relationship started as most of our relationships do, an email inquiry from them, a response from us. What made this relationship a bit different is that Rona and Kivanc don’t live in the US as most of our clients do, they live in Europe! Yeah, super cool. So while we couldn’t set up our usual Starbucks coffee date for our first meeting, we set up a short phone conference and the rest was history. We actually met Rona and Kivanc for the first time on their wedding day, but truth be told, it felt like we knew them for a long time, which was great, because it made working with them so easy. Rona + Kivanc’s wedding took place in beautiful Hopewell Valley Vineyards, about an hour from the city. Their reception was held under a gorgeous lighted tent and showcased truly unique details like empty tea containers in addition to the traditional vases for flowers, to the most beautiful non-traditional bridesmaids dresses we’ve EVER seen. These details really set their wedding apart in a very special way. One of my favorite things about this wedding was the guest list! Their guest really flew from all parts of the country to celebrate their special day. Rona and Kivanc also used our photobooth for their wedding and, well yeah.. that was a blast!

We want to Thank Rona + Kivanc for having us along to document their special day! Your wedding was truly beautiful and we enjoyed every bit of it! We wish you a lifetime of love and happiness!

Wedding: Jessie + Chase @ Harvest On The Hudson

Hey Guys! Its a bit late and Im a bit anxious to publish this wedding post Ive been working on for a couple of days now :) so I will keep things short and sweet.

Meet Jessie and Chase, it seems like yesterday we were shooting their engagement pics in Liberty State park, close to their home, cant believe nearly a year went by and it was time to capture their wedding. Their wedding took place in a beautiful restaurant not too far from our home in Westchester, called Harvest on The Hudson. Overseeing the Hudson River and the beautiful Palisades right across, this scenery was the perfect backdrop for the exchange of their vows on a beautiful bright morning. Thank you Jessie and Chase for having us along for the ride and giving me the opportunity to capture such a special milestone in your lives.
