NYC Fine Art & Documentary Wedding Photography » NYC wedding and portrait photographer specializing in fine-art, documentary & fantasy | based in Brooklyn.

One of the most beneficial things you can do for a smooth wedding is to find the right vendors to partner with. Working with the right people enables trust. Trust is the foundation to a great collaborative effort. After every wedding day when I hear raves from my couples over their photographs I always tell them “it was a wonderful collaboration.”

A few months ago I had a bride-to-be approach me with a very specific idea in mind for her Save the Date invitation cards. Melissa wanted to recreate the feel of an old French anniversary postcard with a soft watercolor palatte.

Melissa and I communicated at length verbally and visually, exchanging photographs of locations, color boards, mood and other inspiration. By the time we met in person at Longwood Gardens, we both felt we were already old friends.

Throughout the session Melissa and I would continually bounce ideas off each other. While she had a clear vision in her head, she also had trust in my suggestions and she allowed me to make changes when I felt it would be beneficial.

And my job was even easier because everyone was happy and relaxed and having a good time. Melissa and her fiancé felt freedom to be candid and playful in front of the lens. All of this contributed to wonderful images.

When it came time to make the final image, we worked back and forth as a team to bring her Save the Date cards to perfection and then it was off to the printer!

When all was said and done and Melissa wrote to me in joy about the final product, the first thing I said was “it was a wonderful collaboration!”

When my invitation arrived in the mail (below, some variations due to the mail delivery) I smiled with pride and then I thought about my new friends and how special their wedding will be. Congratulations Melissa and Mike!

Three of my images recently placed in the WPJA {Wedding Photojournalists Association} quarterly contest. These three images come from weddings last year that all have distinct and wonderful memories for me. A wedding from a beautiful location where I grew up (Rhinecliff Hotel) for a fellow wedding photographer no less! And a wedding in a gorgeous setting in New York that I had never visited and simply can’t believe (Letchworth State Park) with 2 women that were just over the moon for each other! And lastly, a memorable New Years Eve wedding that simply was filled with deep soul and dance and music that rocked 2015 in!

Thank you to Matt and Sarah, Carmen and Lisa and lastly, Tasha and Sascha!
