“Love doesn’t make the world go round. Love is what makes the ride worthwhile.” —Franklin P. Jones Life certainly can be one wild and unpredictable ride. It comes fully equipped with smooth and rough patches that nobody can seem to predict occurring no matter how much people emphasize planning ahead. But that’s one of the most beautiful things about life—how spontaneously it can shift with pleasant surprises, such as meeting the person you eventually marry (although when you meet that person, you aren’t going to know it’s your future spouse). There’s probably no experiences in your life quite as amazing as your college years or your first day of newly wedded bliss. And when the two come together at once, with a mix of love and college you’ve got one great combination. Catherine, the Belgian bride, and her Greek-American groom David first encountered each other at Columbia University while both attended as graduate students. That first day they met left no indication that the two scholars would walk down the aisle; but thanks to fate’s intervention they are now together crossing the path into another first day together; the first one as newlyweds. The immediate family of both the bride and more » Continue reading

Stephanie and Matt’s Victorian garden – inspired wedding at the Metropolitan building

Share

Like many tech-savvy Millennials, Stephanie and Matt’s love story started on OkCupid. Stephanie stole Matt’s heart the minute she walked into the bar for their first date. Her radiant smile lit up his heart immediately and the two lovebirds became inseparable.  Two years later, the couple got engaged and married shortly after. In an elegant and intimate wedding with relatives and close friends, Stephanie and Matt exchanged vows at the Metropolitan Building in Queens on October 2, 2015. In 1980, interior designer Eleanor Ambos bought the building for storage and as a space for skilled artisans to set up their studios. This remodeled and re-purposed industrial building’s high ceilings allow for plenty of overhead room. Its large windows allow ample soft day light to enter into the rooms, and its impressive collection of vintage eclectic props provide a unique creative environment. Tatiana  and her team arrived early on site to capture the beautiful decorations and floral arrangements designed by industry friends Stacy Crowe and Joseph Ortiz from FLO NY Events. Tatiana’s recent trip to Florence, Italy has inspired her to build a museum inspired set-up to showcase the bouquets of gorgeous brides and bridesmaids. Tatiana was very excited to discover more » Continue reading

My Secrets to a Flawless Bridal Getting Ready Photo Shoot

Share

I was recently asked by Brides.com to share my secrets to a flawless wedding getting ready photo shoot. Here are my eight tips that will help to get the best getting ready photos. As a former corporate employee, I treat every wedding as a complex project where every element depends on advanced planning prior to the Wedding Day. With more than 12 years of hands-on wedding photography experience, I believe that pre-planning helps all the major players of the big day – including the couple, bridal party and immediate family members – stay on schedule and get better quality photographs. Here are my top tips on achieving better getting ready photos: 1. Ask your hair and makeup artist for the estimated time needed to complete your wedding day makeover. Add 30-40 minutes to their estimate and be prepared for anything. There are always unexpected things that will get in the way including an urgent phone call, an important missing item, or a friend who wants to congratulate you early. This all adds up and consumes precious time. Don’t be surprised or frustrated by it; just plan for it. …read more   Continue reading

Water-resistant wedding photo albums by Artvesta Studio.

Share

The idea of this post came to me after an unfortunate accident that happened with my personal vacation photo album.  Being a professional photographer, I treasure photo memories and always make a small photo album after every trip. This time I ordered a new photo album online. The book with my Punta Cana photos came out nice, arrived fast, and was very affordable. A small drop of water changed my excitement into frustration. One drop, wiped out almost immediately after it came in contact with the album page, did this: Right away I thought about all those albums I have delivered to my clients over the years: are those albums holding up well? They better be, I thought, because every album cost a fortune in terms of money and a few weeks in terms of production time… After I realized that I never “water-tested” my wedding books, I decided to do so right away. A sample book produced in 2009 seemed like the best candidate for this… Step one: pouring some water on a page Step two: waiting 10 seconds Step three: wiping up the water with a paper towel Step four: closing the book Step five: opening the book more » Continue reading

Princeton Club of New York – Zeta Psi Founders Day – New York 2012-2014

Share

On May 31st, 2014 I photographed The Third Annual NYC Zeta Psi Founder’s Day Banquet in celebration of Zeta Psi’s Founding 167years ago. Hosted by Zeta Psi NYC Regional Alumni Wine Club (RAWC), the event was held at the prestigious Columbia University Club of New York (in residence of the Princeton Club of New York). This is my third year photographing this event and it has been wonderful watching it grow. Events like this are always full of great interactions and I always do my best to capture at least a few great photo journalistic shots. Events 2012, 2013 Event 2014 Photo above: due to a very limited space, I had to utilize my fish-eye lens to fit all 120 people into the photo! I always take a lot of traditional shots, “table shots”, photos of details, and a few photo journalistic photos to fully preserve memories of an event. Photo below is from the Founders Day celebration 2013. The two brothers are looking at printed photos from the 2012 event and sharing their memories. My mission is accomplished. Special thank you to Stephen Halperin for putting together such a fantastic event and for making me a part of the more » Continue reading
