on wednesday night, we had the pleasure of representing jbm wedding photography in the very first 501 union open house. we are so excited to have this incredible new event space right down the street from our house! we’re even MORE excited to be on their well-curated (if i do say so, myself) preferred vendor list. also, if you check out their website i think you’ll notice some familiar images 🙂
had such a great time setting up our table with the help of my hot wife, ash. i just take the pictures. i’m really grateful to have her support when the time comes to make things look freaking adorable. loved our table!
of course we had to incorporate some of my favorite polaroids into the mix. we even took some impromptu portraits of cute couples right on the spot! i think they had a good time, too.
what? these look amazing? thank you! we burned the midnight oil cutting, stamping and stuffing these and it was so worth it! i’m not going to lie, i’m very proud of myself for imaging these babies. inside you’ll find my pricing, ash’s pricing for hair and makeup, an explanation of my services, a beautiful jbm wedding photography postcard and a lovely biz card.
had to share some of my old camera collection.
it was great meeting other brooklyn vendors like jove meyer. he had an awesome setup and even included a vintage camera on the table!
have to give a shout out to his awesome take aways. not only did he use rubber stamps (woot woot!) but he stuffed them with candy. that’s good business!
501 has such a great look.
finally got to meet some of the team over at patina vintage rentals. they brought some amazing pieces for the new space. and who doesn’t love a delicious piece of good ol’ fashioned blueberry pie? it’s almost like cheating when you’re trying to get a potential client’s attention. thanks for the yummies blue smoke!
nom nom nom.
the space wouldn’t have been complete without the beautiful floral arrangements by denise fasanello. she even gave us some greens for our table. so nice!couldn’t get over this love seat from patina. i want one!
we were all thankful for the tunes by dj ryan rasheed of because the night. no joke, the very first song he played was from one of ash’s and my wedding playlists (we had 7!).
my associate shooter, john, and my wife, ash, representing for jbm wedding photography. best team ever!
can’t wait for our first wedding at this incredible space!

recently, ash and i decided it was time to give our image delivery a little more jbm weddings personality. so, we went from shoving dvds into white paper sleeves and shipping them in a cardboard envelope to this nice (in our humble opinion) boutique packaging.
we hope our clients like it!

zoë and jeremy managed to find one of the most quaint coastal towns in all of massachusetts. they then succeeded in finding a gorgeous venue and infusing some of their personality and charm into the whole event.
one of the most fun weddings in recent memory.
enjoy and share!

one word: intimate.
i loved this wedding.
i spent my first day with matty and kaoru at city hall with family followed by a very cozy reception at rucola in brooklyn the next day. i love shooting at city hall because there are so many characters and everyone there is connected by one beautiful thing: someone is getting married!!
enjoy and share!
the sweet couple.
a lovely bouquet.
we got some prep shots in, after all!
perfect spot for an epic portrait 🙂
time for the portrait shoot!
kaoru and matty are so in love. their sweetness made it easy to capture moments like this.
it was so cold! standing in the sun was the only way to stay moderately warm.
and now for the beautiful reception the next day. rucola and their staff did a fantastic job accommodating kaoru and matty.
kaoru and matty’s friends did an awesome job setting up the venue.
the flowers and arrangements at this wedding were beautiful.
loved the light in this space.
sasha making sure everything is perfect.
yummy sweet japanese candy.
suit pants crisis averted!
“romeo and juliet”
very photogenic venue.
stealing the show.

a final toast to newlyweds!
thanks for an amazing weekend, kaoru and matty! congratulations.

had a great day with carla and sean a couple weeks ago. their meatpacking district wedding starting with preparation in the gansevoort hotel, then portraits on the high line and ended with a beautiful reception at the spice market. i’d never been to the spice market before, but they did a fantastic job and the food was pretty amazing.
enjoy and share!

the locations were super close together! always a bonus. great choices carla and sean!

let the portrait shoot begin…
the beauty of doing a portrait shoot in public is that you have to get over being watched very quickly.
YES. spring is almost here!
one of my favorite shots of the day.

this is our first post on our new blog url! we’re super excited about this upcoming season and can’t wait to see what it brings.
the year’s wedding crashers event at the green building in brooklyn was our very first wedding fair. it was a total blast and we will continue to network in the industry! in fact, we are thinking of getting a table at the next wedding crashers event in the fall at 501 union’s new space across the street from the green building. we met a ton of awesome vendors that we hope to work with in the future. you can see some of their tables in the post below. it was so cool to be surrounded by so many creative people who are so willing to work together and cross-promote.
can’t wait for the next one!
enjoy and share!
love the charming aesthetic of the green building.
the green building is such a fantastic venue for events. it’s like a blank canvas. let your creativity run wild!
the tammy golson events table looked great!
erica of tinsel + twine being a charming as ever!
so many people!!
