Jennifer & Todd’s wedding at the Yale Club

It was so exciting to see Jennifer and Todd’s beautiful wedding during the peak of summer! Both Jennifer and Todd relaxed and enjoyed their mornings in the Yale Club before getting dressed for the evening. They saw each other for the first time just outside the club on the streets of New York.  Jennifer looked splendid in her satin mermaid cut dress and Todd was handsome in his black tuxedo.  The couple strolled around Central Park for their portraits before heading to Grand Central Station to have photos taken of the bridal party.  They headed to the Yale Club for the ceremony and later the wedding reception.  While the guests enjoyed cocktails after the ceremony, Jennifer and Todd were able to join them after a brief photo session.  They even had a magnificent ice sculpture of the Empire State Building surrounded by a raw bar! The party later was grand, full of dancing and delicious food. Jennifer and Todd, swing dance aficionados, hired the amazing George Gee Swing Orchestra to keep the party going. We ended the evening with some nighttime portraits outside the club near Grand Central for that classic New York City feel before they returned to their party lasting well into the night.

Erin & Luke’s wedding in Cutchogue, New York

Erin & Luke were such a laid back couple. Already technically married and new parents of an adorable baby boy, these two were ready to party and celebrate with all their close friends and family. They chose a their wonderful home out on the north fork of Long Island in Cutchogue, complete with sunset ocean views and lots of greenery. Erin donned a beautiful lacy dress (with pockets!) and her mother’s pearl necklace that made her stunning features just glow. Luke wore a nice tan suit with a bright tie to match the look and feel of the day. Accompanied by all their nieces as their wedding party, the two had a sweet and simple ceremony in the garden, then after an awesome cocktail hour and tented party! They finished the night with fireworks on the beach to wrap up the perfect way to celebrate a marriage!

Melissa & Zachary’s Wedding at the Trump Soho

If you all remember Melissa & Zach’s fall feature in our best of engagements post, you’ll see why we we’re just so excited to capture their bubbly energy on their wedding day! David and Caleb arrived at the Trump Soho just in time for Melissa to finish up with makeup and put on her Pronovias dress, shoes and Tiffany jewelry. Meanwhile, Zach was getting ready with his gents and their cute frenchie (who also had his own suit, we love it!). They first saw each other down the aisle at the gorgeous Saint Bartholomew’s Church which also featured a chuppah to celebrate their jewish roots. After the ceremony everyone headed back to the Trump Soho for a cocktail hour featuring killer views of the city, then down into the ballroom for their party. The day couldn’t have happened as smoothly as it did without the planning expertise of Angie Nevarez from Baton NYC, gorgeous florals from Ariston Flowers, awesome music from 74 Events and video from the DaVinci Concept.

Craig’s Roadtrip last days

The last 2 days were less about monumental places and more about taking pics of whatever was interesting.

Complete photographic freedom.

So there is less coherence and more randomness – old signs, long roads, broken cars, police, chili peppers, VLA’s (thats Very Large Arrays of radio telescopes) amazing skies and of course the star of our trip – The Barracuda

 

The longest straight road I have ever seen. Over 50 miles long.

The Journey Continues

This just in from Craig & Poby yesterday:

MonumentValley_CraigPaulson001MonumentValley_CraigPaulson004MonumentValley_CraigPaulson002MonumentValley_CraigPaulson003

We got up at 5.30 this morning and drove back to the Grand Canyon for sunrise shots-simply stunning and I can’t wait to process the film. 

The next drive was along the south rim towards Cameron, and then to Kayenta where we stayed the night. This was conveniently about 40 minutes from Monument Valley- so we arrived there about an hour before sunset to claim a good spot to shoot from. With the car and all of our old school equipment we got lots and lots of attention.MonumentValley_CraigPaulson005MonumentValley_CraigPaulson

We sat here for about 2 hours watching the sunset over Monument Valley. Note: the shadow of the first monument falling on the second one only occurs a few weeks of the year. We were lucky to have this and a clear day. Poby took a time lapse which will follow.

Today we slept in a bit and are now on the way to Pagosa Springs Colorado, where they have 23 different mineral springs by the river.
