Back in September I got incredibly lucky to photograph the amazing wedding of Joseph and Elle. The day started at their loft in Dumbo and ended in the wee hours at Gary’s Loft in Midtown.
Joao Castellano helped me out and tagged along with Joseph while he was preparing for the wedding, fetching booze, loading up on pizza and being pooped on by a bird. Thank you Joao for doing such an amazing job!
Sometimes I get the question what’s the worst thing that has gone wrong at a wedding. I am happy to answer that nothing has ever gone terribly wrong. Although I think that if I was to imagine scenarios, having a bird poop on my custom suit would not come to mind. In this case it provided a humorous moment.
Gary’s Loft is a unique penthouse with roof access and amazing views of Midtown.
The all tile bathroom with a claw foot tub could not be resisted.
And then this happened. Don’t ask me what is going on or why. I am still trying to find that out.
I know I’m gonna come across as a big geek, and this may be of no importance to anyone, but I can’t help but to share my excitement of having just received the new Canon 5D Mark II. After having had a few days to play with it I am blown away by the image quality and possibilities of this camera. The super high resolution of 21 megapixels and light sensitive sensor has gotten me jazzed and I look forward to take this baby into action.
I received the great honor the have been chosen as one of the recommend vendors at this cool wedding blog. Thanks a bunch!!!!

The vast majority of the weddings I photograph take place right here in Manhattan but if there is one location I love to travel to it’s the Wainwright House. The history of the Wainwright family is a long and fascinating one. The building itself was erected in 1931 based on a chateau in Raincheval in northern France.
The current use of the building as a non-sectarian learning center and organization of the United Nations started in 1951 with the intention to create a “place under one roof where people from all backgrounds and all beliefs and even no beliefs at all- could aspire for a greater understanding of the creative force of life we call God”.
On the weekends the beautiful building and gardens right on the Long Island Sound houses some of the most amazing weddings with the help of Corner Stone Caterers.
During the summer I had the fortune to document several weddings at Wainwright House.
A quick last minute decision whether the ceremony needs to be moved inside since the storm clouds are growing larger by the minute. They crossed their fingers and stayed outside. The rain never came.
