The Wedding Memories
If I can offer one piece of advice for your big day, it’s to live in the moment and don’t worry about timelines, vendors, or the stress leading up to everything. With countless weddings photographed and captured on video in the NY TRI STATE area, it’s completely ordinary to not be on-schedule with your day's timeline, and guess what, it usually has nothing to do with the wedding party! Spend that extra moment soaking it in, hugging your dad, having a first look, dancing a little longer, oh and getting that extra photograph. And get that dress and suit dirty, jump in the pool, ocean, hell even the bathtub. Have fun with it! This is your big day!! Make it count!
Family and friends are what you value most and you want your wedding photos to capture how much you love them.
From the spontaneous joy you feel when you first see a loved one face, to the moments of anticipation, laughter, and connection you’ll share on your wedding day, it’s the way you feel about one another that drives me to focus on the moments that matter, and to create stunning portraits and video that honor your relationships.
