Carolyn and Joel at The Garrison

Carolyn and Joel are delightful together and apart. They compliment each other in the best ways. 

Carolyn got dressed at the Garrison, while Joel was at a nearby hotel. 

The first look took place under the shade trees to keep everyone cool. We made our way down hill to the big view later for a few group photos and to capture the scenery. This is where we used the drone for a brief time. I love drone images but never want the distraction during the ceremony. (They can be pretty noisy). Family photos were taken in front of the iconic stone gazebo. As the afternoon grew late the light became soft and lovely.

As the time for the ceremony approached, the day  was so   beautiful, clear and blue .As Carolyn walked down the aisle to meet Joel, everything was perfect. The Flowers adorning the wooden "Huppa" were stunning. I could here the guests whispering that the view was amazing, and then when Carolyn  was midway down the aisle the crowd was awed by how beautiful she looked. Radiant might be a cliche but true.

A Hudson Valley Engagement{ Theresa and PJ}

Sometimes I feel so amazingly honored and inspired by a couple . Theresa and PJ's enthusiasm and trust in me and in each other made it possible for me to take risks with light, and let them enjoy each other in the process.

A sunny day, a gorgeous couple, not gonna lie. Could not get better.

Adam and Jaime are married

This was a wedding close to my heart in many ways. First I have known the Adams  mom since childhood, and seen the joy this family always bring to everywhere they are.

The day of the wedding was dark and rainy. We really thought all the formal portraits of the day would be taken indoors, but nature provided a break. The day was warm at least.

Jaime was absolutely radiant in her lace and beaded strapless gown. she wore her hair half down and it was so natural and uncontrived, yet elegant.

Adam was very handsome in his black tux. I loved seeing the photos of Davey assisting him dress. This was just 6 weeks out from Davey's  heart surgery and he did not miss a beat. It was awe inspiring.Even doing the hora was in his playbook.

The flowers and Chupa during the ceremony and reception were stunning. and the BAND..OMG, the night was made all the better by that fantastic music.

I know Jaime will be a wonderful partner to Adam. She has already shown her love and support in so many ways, from helping him heal after a torn achilles to just being a fun and loving partner

Adam is kind and smart and funny. I love them both
