Elena and Justin's Catskill Wedding!

In late July, I had the pleasure of photographing one of the most picturesque weddings I've yet to attend. Justin and Elena were able to get ready without seeing each other in a massive, lofty bed and breakfast. To begin their ceremony, Elena was escorted by her brother on a trail that led behind the ceremony site, creating a wonderful entrance. Their nuptials were rich in Jewish cultural tradition, which trickled into their festive reception. The love, the natural beauty of both the couple and their venue, and the laid back attitude of their friends and family was both touching and memorable. Congratulations Elena and Justin!

Venue, Hellbrook Farms.
Catering, The Would Restaurant

Wintery Weekend

For the first time in what feels like forever, I was lucky enough to escape New York City and venture north to the Hudson Valley and the Catskills. I've become increasingly inspired by the snowy landscape late January offered me in Brooklyn and decided to create some work just because. If anything, this weekend served to be both an escape and a moment to appreciate taking photos because I wanted to. I hope you enjoy! 1X9A2617 1X9A2625 1X9A2629 1X9A2635 1X9A2647 1X9A2652 1X9A2655 1X9A2657 1X9A2663 1X9A2670
