A fresh, fashion idea for a bad weather formal setting

I had a wedding one winter evening that was so cold your breath froze. The venue was a long, very, very dark space- not at all inviting a lovely spot for relaxed “formals” portraits that should eb at once elegant and really represent who you are.

I gathered several yards of fabric, modeling it after a advertisement I had seen in Vanity Fair for Versace. We draped it over a small couch and hung it in a drapy way over my backgroudn stands . Voila! A portrait setting that was unique and lovely and continued to run through the evening for glamorous portraits of guest. here are a few examples

A Country wedding in Maine for Amalia and Aaron

I have no words to express the loving attention to detail this couple provided to the homemade, heartfelt wedding they had. I will leave the images do the talking

Melissa and Ryan are married at Red Maple Vineyard

It was so so hot and then the storm rolled in…the sign of a great love affair, a couple meant to be together, is how they handle a disappointment together. Well, both Melissa and Ryan just rolled with it all.They completely were thinking of the friends and family, not themselves, when they called the ceremony to be held indoors. No drama, just lots of joy and love. What a honor to be with them documenting this fabulous day.

During the vowels, the thunder and pelting rain added drama and the room was so quiet save for the two beautiful people expressing their love for each other. It was really magic.

Later the party was raucous and so so fun.

The James Burden mansion {Swathi and Grant have a fusion wedding}

From a East Asian ceremony, with a lot of rice throwing, to a glorious dinner party with a bride in white, this wedding will be one I will always remember. The James Burden and Otto kahn Mansions are the perfect venue- elegant, but not excessively fussy, with a lovely staircase and library for portraits.

Swathi and Grant were running very late so we had to scrape plans to go to Central Park for photos. Never mind that , the Park Avenue street was just perfect for a fun and fast session.
