Connecticut wedding photography, New York wedding photography

I had the pleasure and honor this weekend of photographing Linda and Jarrell on their wedding day!  They are an incredibly sweet couple, and they tied the knot in front of family and friends in Linda’s hometown (although they now live in Mississippi).  I sometimes don’t have the opportunity to photograph the groom and his family getting ready, so it was a treat to get to see the guys’ side: getting the tie knots just right, choosing socks (Linda loves cherries, so Jarrell wore cherry socks), and feeling the family love.  Linda got ready at her aunt’s house, surrounded by female family members (she has 9 siblings!) who helped her with all aspects of getting ready and whisked her off to their local church for the ceremony.  It was a beautiful and heartfelt ceremony, and a great party after too at the Riverview, with (true to its name) a beautiful view of the Hudson River.  Thank you guys so much for trusting me to capture this day for you!

Connecticut Bar Mitzvah photography, New Haven Lawn Club events, Mishkan Israel photography

Aden accomplished a huge rite of passage last month, leading a Bar Mitzvah service for many family and friends at Mishkan Israel.  His family helped him party in style that evening at the beautiful New Haven Lawn Club, where guests were treated to an every-detail-remembered celebration: party games and kid cocktails, a photo booth, a donut bar, dancing for all ages, an elegant dinner service and dessert, and of course a huge hora, with every last guest involved and having fun.  They even had Slinkies to remind guests to “spring ahead” that evening.  Congratulations, Aden!

Is this little bundle for real?  She is only one week old and already totally enamored with her siblings.  We could see her orienting toward them whenever they spoke, and she actually smiled when big brother kissed her on the head (the proof is in the photo!)–this was not a sleep smile!  She’s totally surrounded by love, and I think she knows it :).  I love this beautiful family and feel so lucky to have been asked to capture a little slice of these first days!  Thanks guys!!!

Travel photography, Hawaii photography

My fourth and final Hawaii post!  I finally sorted through all 1800 photos I took ;-).  Below are photos from our few days in Wailea, the “resort” coast of Maui, where it’s almost always sunny, the waves at the beaches are fun to jump in, and sea turtles abound!  Highlights were a whale watching trip where we got lucky enough to see whales repeatedly breaching, an outrigger canoe ride where we helped paddle and we learned about Maui’s history from a local, and a luau–yes, it was a bit commercial-feeling, but a really great show!
