Krista and Matt’s wedding in Key West Florida was SUCH a blast to photograph, and I loved how their photos turned out! So I decided to put together a little slide show so everyone could see a little more from this fantastic wedding. Thanks to Michelle Arlotta for helping me out on this one! So click on it and enjoy!

Because I shot Jeanine and Kevin’s engagement session last November at Liberty State Park, I already knew this was going to be a fun wedding to shoot! I had photographed Katie’s, Jeanine’s matron of honor, wedding last year as well, so it was good to see her and her husband Chris again too. We had a gorgeous day, a great venue, a fun bridal party and an awesome couple to work with today! Yay! The reception was held at the Heldrich in New Brunswick NJ. Congratulations you two, and enjoy that honeymoon in Mexico!

Today I met little miss Madison for her 1 year old photo shoot…serious business!. She is such a cutie, and she really loved waving hello to the other people at Rutgers Gardens. I had a great time hanging out with Madison and her dad today, thanks guys!

I had such a great time hanging out with Becky and Cuong today. They decided on the NYU area for some photos since they both just started attending there. I was telling Cuong how I had done another engagement session in the same area last year with Warren and Agnes, who also attended NYU together. Well, while I was photographing Becky and Cuong in front of Jack Black (see shot below), who comes strolling in front of us but Warren! Small world indeed. After Warren was done telling Becky and Cuong how great I am, we hopped on the subway towards Bryant Park for the second half of our session. We got some great shots and Becky and Cuong were real troopers while I had some minor technical difficulties with my flash. Thanks guys, see you next month for your wedding!

No, Cuong doesn’t really have fangs! I couldn’t resist a little Photoshopping! And just in case anyone is still unsure…this photo is a joke! Postscript: After showing this photo to Susan, she totally didn’t see that there are two silhouetted heads behind them which they are mimicking. hmmm, maybe this isn’t a successful joke!

I couldn’t wait to post these photos from Alexa’s Bat Mitzvah! Alexa gave me 25 minutes of her time before the cocktail hour began to do a mini-photo shoot. I found this cool little back alley right around the corner from where her reception was taking place, The Loft in Montclair, NJ. I decided to “run” with the whole loft/New York City/grunge theme. I loved how these turned out! And although Alexa has a unique gift of blinking the millisecond before I press the shutter, we worked it out! During the cocktail hour I saw a lot of familiar faces. I got to see past mitzvah kids like Jessie, Carly, AJ, and Allie. Alexa’s party was such a blast to photograph! Her family and friends are truly a great group of people who clearly know how to have a great time! Congratulations Alexa.

This is Alexa’s little brother “wild man” Jackson. How flippin’ cute is he?!

This is how it’s done!

Proving that sometimes more is actually more!
