amber + billy : williamsburg, ny

amber and billy’s wedding was one to remember. it was a gorgeous, sunny, FREEZING day by the water in williamsburg. some of the things that i loved about this wedding were the venues (who doesn’t love the wythe hotel and the brooklyn winery?) and the couple’s willingness and openness for anything. i mean anything. it was about 22 degrees and you should have seen what i put them through at the portrait shoot. jk.

anyways, what rose above everything else was the outpouring of love that i witnessed. they had the most wonderful friends and families.

i was honored to be a part of it.

enjoy!

501 union open house

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!

501UNION_OPENHOUSE_BLOG_WM_0002

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.501UNION_OPENHOUSE_BLOG_WM_0003

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.

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!

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!

can’t wait for our first wedding at this incredible space!

kaoru & matty’s wedding: manhattan and brooklyn, ny

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!
