Edith Wharton Estate Wedding in Lenox, Massachusetts: Sara +Serge

Serge and Sara

It’s always an exciting honor to photograph the weddings of friends. I’ve known Serge since he was in his Freshman year at California Institute of the Arts. He is an incredibly talented graphic designer, artist, and thinker. When I met his beautiful lady Sara who is an excellent poet and a teacher, I knew immediately that they were the perfect match.

Serge and Sara had a destination wedding of sorts, bringing their close friends and family together for a few days of fun in Lenox, Massachusetts, just a few hours North of New York City. Their wedding was held at Edith Wharton’s estate, The Mount. Walking into Edith Wharton’s house makes you feel like you’re stepping back in time and transports you to another world. It was the perfect location for a wedding and I loved incorporating details of the house and grounds into their photos.

I was lucky to have my good friend and kick-ass photographer Jacklyn Greenberg of Jag Studios along for the day. Planning and details were expertly handled by the cool and classy masterminds at Glitter and Rye. The beautiful flower work was done by Crocus Hale Flowers. The event was catered by Mezze Events.

iPhoneography

Ever since I was 17 I’ve had a thing for cameras. I’ve got quite a collection; A few 35mm film cameras, two 6x7s, a 6×4.5, Holga, Lomo, a twin lens, and my stable of digital equipment. But there’s one very small camera that I never leave home without, my iPhone. The few times that I’ve misplaced or lost my phone, my biggest fear is that I’ll miss the chance to photograph some interesting person or moment. There’s always some element that draws me in to take a picture. It may take 100 frames until the right elements align or as I put it, the magic happens. I’ve found that strapped with my iPhone, headphones, and maybe even a cup of coffee to sip on, I can really become inconspicuous.

Up until this point my iPhone photos have been like a coveted collection of miniatures in my Instagram gallery. This New Year, as a gift to myself, I worked long and hard to cull my favorites out of the thousands of photos I’ve taken with this camera over the last two years. It’s been a long time coming.

Wishing you all a wonderful 2014!

Before I get into my top pics from the day, one of my favorite wedding blogs is featuring Evita and Alex’s wedding. Junebug is run by two wedding photographers that have a great appreciation for photography, so while being a great resource for couples planning their weddings, they always keep it interesting for us photographers by showcasing quality photography. It’s an honor to make it onto their blog. Click on the image below to see the feature as well as the off-the-charts videos by FortyOneTwenty. While Evita was getting dolled up, they made a legit music video with Alex.

Sheena + Moni – Santa Teresa, Costa Rica Wedding

A few flights, a puddle jumper, and a long drive through rain damaged roads away is the small town of Santa Teresa, Costa Rica where my two friends Sheena and Monihan got married and spent an epic week with friends and family. You might remember them from their City Hall, New York photos where they tied the knot officially.

Moni’s sister Aimee Monihan of Tropical Occasions and Santa Teresa Beach Weddings was the mastermind behind the week of festivities. She is a true talent.

Destination Weddings Magazine is on newsstands now and featuring their wedding. The cover is by Elizabeth Messina:

Here are a few of my favorites.

Sheena in her Sari on the evening of their rehearsal dinner.

The crew in saris and kurtas.

On the morning of their wedding, Sheena’s mom found the town church to say some prayers for them.

Tara St. James of the awesome Study New York clothing line doing finishing touches on Sheena’s dress. She reinvented an Alexander McQueen design for Sheena.

Minutes before the ceremony it started to rain.

In an entrance with flare, Monihan ran up the beach and threw his umbrella.

Waiting to walk down the aisle.

Aimee + John – Descanso Gardens, Los Angeles Wedding

“There is nothing in the world so irresistibly contagious as laughter and good humor.”
― Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol

I think everyone at Aimee and John’s wedding including myself, caught the bug. Even when the car service didn’t show up at the W Hotel to take us to the ceremony, nothing stopped these two from smiling. Instead we squeezed into the cars we had including mine. The combination of their love, the good nature of this crowd, and the stunning backdrop of the Descanso Gardens made for a magical day.

John waiting for Aimee…

The best idea for a guest book. Witty friends essential…

Sean + Caroline – A New York City Wedding

Sean and Caroline decided to do a destination wedding in New York so that they could keep their wedding intimate, low key, and something they would really enjoy. They got ready at a hotel in Times Square which made for a fun New York backdrop. Everyone met in the Conservatory Gardens of Central Park where the officiant and musicians were waiting. No chairs, no decorations, just a sweet ceremony. Tourists and garden lovers milled about while Sean and Caroline exchanged vows. Afterwards we took some photos in the garden and then walked through Harlem to take the subway downtown. They had a lovely dinner at the hidden gem Freeman’s on the Lower East Side. Roaming the streets of New York with my camera is one of my favorite things and it was such a pleasure to do so with Sean and Caroline on their special day.
