The newly wed couple was then joined by their guests at the Mandarin Oriental for a beautiful wedding reception. The couple and guests danced the night away to the majestic music composed by Starlight Orchestra and enjoyed every bite of the Mandarin Oriental’s catering.

We’d like to extent a heartfelt congratulations to Meghan and Matt on their beautiful wedding day! We had a great time photographing this wonderful couple on one of the most important days of their lives.

The bride finalized her wedding day look once she put on her gorgeous gown styled by Martina Liana.

After an emotional wedding ceremony, the lovely married couple and their guests came together for a celebration at Ciprianis in the Wall Street area. The floral arrangements truly stood out in the venue thanks to the amazing Ivie Joy.

Sara and Mitch tied the knot with a beautiful wedding this summer at The Foundry and we had a lovely time shooting this joyful and elegant wedding in Long Island City.

A wedding full of classic New York skylines, urban aesthetics, and dancing into the night…what more could one want? Tara Angelopoulos from Dream Makers did a fantastic job planning this event incorporating great traditions such as lighting a handmade unity candle and various dances performed by the bride, groom, and loving families. The bouquets and flowers created by the talented group at Bride and Blossom added the final touch. 

The bride prepared for her big day at the Ravel Hotel and blew their guests away with a dress by BLHDN while the groom wore a handsome suit designed by Kenneth Cole.

New York Wedding Photographer - Kate & Sean`s dreamy wedding at Natirar

Kate and Sean made it official this April with a marvelous Spring wedding. We had an amazing time shooting for this lovely couple in New Jersey.

The beautiful bride and handsome groom started their day by getting ready at Natirar with the help of their wonderful friends and family. Kate slipped on her gorgeous dress by Theia; and the talented makeup artist and hair stylist Amy Baskin helped make her look like a super model. While the bride put on the finishing touches, the stylish groom and his friends played an exciting game of pool, getting ready to meet his beautiful bride for the first look.

After seeing each other for the first time, we took the couple on a stroll around the venue and took pictures with the lush scenery. After a chilly but fun portrait session, the groom watched his beautiful wife-to-be walk down the aisle with her father. After the ceremony the newly married couple took breathtaking sunset pictures.

Afterwards the crowd headed inside to get the party started. Everyone was dancing and having a blast with the help of the Dj Mathew Friedman who ensured an amazing time. The terrific team of Natirar not only made sure everything ran smoothly but also provided delicious treats for the bride & groom and their loved ones. The stunning design came beautifully together with the hard work and talent of Jardiniere Flowers.

It was an honor capturing those very special moments for our gorgeous couple. Congratulations, Kate and Sean!
