They say that taking photographs is like painting… but with LIGHT. And it’s so true! Just like a painter would look for the best quality paints to create something beautiful on a white canvas, photographers are always searching for the best possible light to create photographs. There’s a common misconception that having MORE light is […]

If you look at the photo I shared above, how does the day seem? Warm and serene? It wasn’t. The weekend this photo was captured, NYC experienced extreme cold temperatures under ten (!!) degrees Fahrenheit (It felt like it was under zero degrees due to the wind chill!). Where this photo was taken, extreme gusts […]

One of the first questions I always get from couples when they’re planning their engagement session with me is: Do you have any recommendations on locations where we could schedule our session? I get this same question from soon-to-be grooms (and soon-to-be brides!) who are planning surprise proposals and are asking me to capture this beautiful moment on […]

I’m shooting at least three (!) surprise marriage proposals in NYC this month! (Well, they don’t call it “engagement season” for nothing!) So in the midst of all of the back-and-forth’s with excited soon-to-be grooms as they plan their proposals, I’ve found myself thinking a lot about marriage proposing tips.   A few weeks ago, […]

I had a busy weekend with back-to-back family photo sessions, lunch with an #ARCouple whose wedding I’ll be shooting next year, and quality time with a friend who’s currently designing a website for her health coaching business (Check out some of the photos I did for her a few months ago HERE)! And somehow, between […]

Sometimes, the scariest part of a proposal can be deciding when to do it… and how. A few days ago, I received a message from a very excited soon-to-be groom. He wants to surprise his girlfriend […]

Today I am extremely thrilled to introduce to everyone my brand new Bridal Guide magazine – ‘The Wedding Experience’! After many, many month of working really hard behind the scenes putting together the content, selecting the images, and creating the layout, I’ve finally completed my project and am ready to release my magazine! I got my first hard copy of the bound magazine […]

I get this question a lot from my #AR couples and #AR families, so I thought I’d write a quick blog post about it. And the question is: “What time of day should I schedule my portrait photo session?” My answer? Well, the truth is, well trained photographers are successful shooting at any time of […]
