That one time I got to photograph Annie Leibovitz taking a selfie...

At the wedding I photographed last weekend, the famed portrait photographer, Annie Leibovitz happened to be guest. It was incredible to be in the presence of one of my photography heroes (and yes, it was a teeny bit intimidating too). So when the moment presented itself to be able to take the following photo, I nearly squealed with delight! Here is the amazingly brilliant Ms. Leibovitz taking a selfie with the bride and her sister:

JoAnn & Ralph's Westchester Country Club Wedding

JoAnn and Ralph are a wonderful couple. They are the kind of couple that everyone instantly adores. Sweet through and through, so much fun, and the kind of people you just love to see getting married to each other. Their wedding was on a beautiful autumn day filled with warm friends, loving family, beautiful moments, and fun details throughout. I'm so excited to finally be able to share their wedding on my blog! This wedding was a fantastic way to finish my 2013 wedding season, and soon I will be sharing my 2014 weddings - so stay tuned!

This little guy must have stayed up pretty late the night before the wedding:

I love the timelessness of this photo, in a vintage Bentley right after their ceremony:

Then on the gorgeous grounds of Westchester Country Club, a most beautiful setting for a wedding!

The Westchester Country Club ballroom was breathtaking!

JoAnn's gorgeous wedding cake was a replica of her exquisite Vera Wang wedding gown. If you look closely, you can see a tiny Spiderman peeking out from the bottom of the cake as a surprise for Ralph!

One of my favorite cake-cutting photographs ever!

JoAnn and Ralph, you guys know how much I adore you both! Being a part of your wedding was beyond amazing. I wish you many many many years of wedded bliss!

Antonella & Jed's Wedding at Harvest on Hudson

I love weddings at Harvest on Hudson - an unmatched view of the Hudson River and the Palisades, situated between the George Washington and the Tappan Zee Bridges, delicious food, and a beautiful venue. When you add in an amazing couple like Antonella and Jed, you have the perfect recipe for a fantastic wedding.

Antonella, moments before walking down the aisle. I love that you can see the nervous excited energy in her face.

Luckily, the weather held out for a sweet outdoor ceremony in the garden

Next, we took a few moments to photograph Antonella and Jed together, taking in the spectacular view

Then it was on to dancing and an elegant reception inside.

It was a lovely wedding day for Antonella and Jed, and I'm honored I was able to be a part of it all!

Westchester Family Portraits

It's been quite a while since I've blogged recent portrait sessions! How could I let these cuties go un-blogged for so long? Please forgive me while enjoying these tiny adorable smiles:

This handsome little fella is no stranger to the blog. I know his mama is going to be VERY happy to see his adorable face on here (finally - I know!).

And his Boston terrier pup had to have his own moment in the spotlight too :)

Next up we have this beautiful little newborn-- I'm looking forward to seeing him again very soon for some updated portraits!

He was a perfect angel throughout his entire session!

Love his sweet little squishy face!

I had such a nice time photographing these cousins and their families. These were the five most well-behaved children I have ever photographed. Their mamas are doing a darn good job of raising such polite sweet children!

The mom of these two little cuties is also one of my brides. It was great seeing her and catching up again! (Can't forget dad - it always seems to be about the brides though, right?)

Next up are these two handsome brothers. Baby brother was so smily and happy!

I love this photo of the two handsome little guys together. This was one of my favorite portraits I made all last year. (Oops, now you know how late I am at blogging these!) Have you ever seen such big beautiful blue eyes??

And big brother had so much fun climbing and playing at our session - he was full of energy!

And finally we have this sweet and fun little lady, who just became a big sister!

I love this silly picture with mom and dad, who are also wedding clients of mine. I love seeing my families grow and come back to me each year, it is such a blessing!

Hope to see many more of you very soon! I love photographing children and families just as much as I love photographing weddings. 'Tis the season for both!
