Happy Fourth of July!

Peter & Lauren's Destination Wedding
I had the privilege of photographing Peter & Lauren’s destination wedding not too long ago. They traveled all the way from Australia with a nice group of family and friends in tow. Not only was the whole clan super cute and lovely, it was a ton of fun to share our city with them. Officiant: Rev. Annie Lawrence
Chris and Krista's Vintage Inspired Engagement...
A special thanks to the folks at FIND Furniture store in Gowanus, Brooklyn. Not only are they a neighborhood favorite, but they were kind enough to open their store for Chris & Krista’s engagement shoot!

Alex and Emily in NY Mag Winter Weddings 2011!
Check out Alex & Emily’s photo in New York Mag’s Winter Issue! It was such a nice day, beautiful snowfall and they have a lovely story, so I’m glad they got to share their story :)
Gabe and Danielle's Wedding
The big day finally came for Gabe & Danielle and it was, of course, such a beautiful day. Although there were a few hiccups, that didn’t stop them from having a lot of fun. And just like their engagement shoot, Danielle perfectly balanced glamorous with adorable and quirky, she has such great taste! They also managed to include their dog Oliver and his best friend Rex, surprisingly...
Gabe and Danielle
I photographed Gabe, Danielle and their little one, Oliver, in their super cute apartment in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Besides being crazy adorable, they have impeccable taste. We spent the day taking a short-tour of their favorite weekend activiites; Brooklyn Smorgasbord, walk the Wiliamsburg Bridge, and a relaxing neighborhood bike ride.
Max & Jejon
This past weekend I had the pleasure of shooting under the very talented Khaki Bedford, she’s one of our amazing shooters (and soon-to-be mommy!) We got to photograph Max and Jejon’s nuptials, which had an added meaning since only a few hours after they were married the state of New York officially recognized their marriage. It was the perfect blend of close friends, beautiful...
Anabel's Baby Shower
I had the pleasure of shooting Anabel’s baby shower held at Location05 Studios in TriBeca. Anabel is Ecuadorian, and Frank, half Ecuadorian, half Italian, so needless to say there was lots of family, lots of punch, and lots of good-times.
Anabel, Frank, & Lynn
There’s something always really fun about doing family photos. I recall my own family photos being taken (usually at a Sears in New Jersey), we all wore our Sunday best and got shuffled into a small room under lights where I’m pretty sure smelled like old teddy bears and poopy diapers. Perhaps this is where my career choice came from. I’m very happy that I get to meet other...
Celebration of All That is Good Video
Forefront Church also sent me over this fun video that they made for their church, it features our very own master of the Digital PhotoBooth, Mick “The Quick”! Thanks to filmmaker Shawn Willis for including some of our photos.
Celebration of All That is Good!
We recently did a Digital Photobooth for Forefront Church’s “Celebration of All that is Good” party in Gramercy. It’s always nice to have a party just because…
Ben, Charolotte, & Emily
Baby Ava and her beautiful mom Trish decided to do a maternity photo shoot as a surprise Valentine’s Day gift to dad. We decided to do a JCrew inspired look, and I really loved how it turned out! I would love to do more, so any mothers-to-be, mothers-already, and friends of the family—photos make great gifts!
Johnson & Alison part II
And there’s nothing like a 4x5 Polaroid PhotoBooth…
Johnson & Alison part I
Alex & Emily (Part II)
So I was lucky enough to have been blessed with shooting Alex & Emily’s City Hall wedding with probably the best snowfall of the season so far—the best looking anyway. We avoided Snowpocalypse and the two, along with a small group of family, celebrated their union with true New York City style ceremony and some Chinatown eats at Joe’s Shanghai. All and all, an extremely cute...
Alex & Emily
I shot Alex and Emily this past weekend. Although we prepared for cold weather, it was surprisingly warm that day, allowing us to run around for a few hours. Alex & Emily have had a whirlwind romance, the two originally met a few years ago in a marital arts class. Between Russia, Vancouver, and New York City the two fell in love and are getting hitched in January. We chose to go with an...
Tomi & Jacob on Brooklyn Bride!
How fun is this? I love love love it when we get featured, I especially love it when our subject gets a Too-Cool-For-School Stamp. Nice job, Tomi & Jacob! (I know we all wish we were half as cute)
Jacob and Tomi
I got the opportunity to shoot Jacob and Tomi in Coney Island a few weeks ago. Tomi is a close friend who has already been married to Jacob for a few years now, but they wanted some fun, whimsical photos. Check out her post-wedding blog, The AfterAll. So when we arrived for the shoot, the weather was bright, sunny, and perfect. And after a cup of white hot chocolate from the Dunkin, it went...
I’ve been surprisingly quiet these days. As we approach holiday season, it’s gotten a bit hectic; before you know it, it’s November. Double yikes. I thought it’d be nice to share one of my more recent discoveries, Vi.sualizer. It’s an image bookmarking blog site, pretty much the internet’s version of magazine scrapbooking. It’s probably something...
Featured on The Inspired Bride!
Wow, this has been so great. It’s only been about a month since d + s launched our new website, and the response has been overwhelming! It makes me so happy :) One of my personal favorite wedding blogs, The Inspired Bride, featured us today so be sure to check out Melinda & Mario.

Bobby and Jess's wedding featured on Brooklyn...
We’re featured again on the amazing Brooklyn Bride blog, check it out!
Ava's First Birthday
This is Ava. Fabulous, isn’t she? She’s been around for a whole year, so it was only appropriate to celebrate in style.
Mario and Melinda
Mario & Melinda decided to get married at City Hall and have a three hour photo session around Brooklyn afterward. Unfortunately, a very unfriendly tornado decided to say hello instead. But we rescheduled for the next day, and the weather was perfect! We had a great time.
Bright Fall Party
I never did like the notation that fall weddings have to be orange or yellow, so I decided to throw in some brighter colors.
Bobby and Jess
I just came back from Lenox Massachusetts where Bobby and Jess were married at an amazing bed and breakfast called the Stonover Farm. Since fall has just arrived, it was the perfect setting complete with dinner under a tent, barn with music and dancing and a campfire for smores in the back. All around beautiful day, beautiful couple.
I love love love love anything to do with natural wood. This desk is my favorite, so get ready because you’ll probably see it spun a ton of different ways. I wanted to do something really simple and this would be perfect for a barn wedding. Us New Yorkers are always jealous of the outdoors… The perfect venue, however, and you may just have something really intentional and refined. ...
Found French Cottage
I was inspired by a little knick-knack used to hold herbes de provence I’ve been keeping around. I added in a mix of dried flowers with a few live ones over a heavy tablecloth, which I turned inside out so I can see the seams and tousled threads. I chose a pale green and pink as the general color palette and threw in a vibrant red ribbon to hold the name tags. Wouldn’t a bunch of...

Studio Stop; Location 05
I spent the day at one of our partners, Location05 Studios, located in TriBeca. It’s where I’ve spent most of my time these days, so I thought it’d be nice to show a few details you can find here. Overall, the studios are perfect in every way—5 large studios, about a billion props and furniture, and perfect light. What’s great is the studios have a ton of uses...

Some Quick Tips When Looking for a Wedding...
Here are some quick tips for overwhelmed and under-encouraged brides in search of a wedding photographer: (1. Establish your budget. Allow yourself some space to budge, but have a maximum price you’ll spend. (2. Look at blogs and wedding magazines. If you spot a set of photos you love, there’s usually a photo credit to track down the photographer. In magazines, if you can’t...
