Fantastic weekend in NYC! Started things off on Saturday with a fantastic pulled pork sandwich by Bob Gibson BBQ at the Big Apple BBQ in Madison Square Park. Its an annual event that brings throngs of BBQ lovers from all over the country. That night I headed to NJ to shoot the Engagement Party of Amira & Pat at their cousins Lebanese Fusion restaurant called LeMezza. The food, the dance, and the company were exquisite! I walked away with a full belly and a warm heart. Their wedding is in October at The Plaza (my first there) and I’m thrilled beyond words that this family will be my inaugural event. You see just 60 of them managed produce a level of revelry that rivaled an Ultra concert. I can only imagine what 300 will do! Sunday started off with an amazing engagement session with Sara and Eric in Grand Central Station and around the basin in Central Park. An incredibly charming and attractive couple and a pleasure to shoot. I’ll be posting those images soon! After that connected with Rachel Faith Mizrahi and Erica Berman of Jane Layne Events. I agreed to shoot some profile pics for them around the West Village. What a great time. It was all cotton candy for them and Mr. Softee for me! I love NYC!
The group from Daria & Jose’s wedding brought their A-game when it was
time to party. Every guest was given an inscribed wooden shot cup
tethered by a lanyard. Once the Aguardiente started flowing it was
pandemonium in the ring!! Enjoy!
The connection with your photographer is one of the most important parts of preparing for your wedding. At JSPStudio, it starts with our first meeting, but it continues with our Editorial Engagement Sessions.
Weddings Illustrated featured me in their most recent Weddings Illustrated Expert Chat to discuss all things Engagement.
One year ago while shooting a wedding in the Bahamas, a guest, at the reception, asked me to photograph his proposal the next day. Being it was so beautifully impromptu, i couldn’t resist and we planned a meeting place. Today I have the thrill of shooting the wedding in Kansas City. So much of what we do is programmed and anticipated. To be be part of an organic collaboration from the very beginning is beyond exciting. I seriously feed off this kind of stuff!!
