a nyc elopement!

i LOVE photographing elopements in new york city! merel & arthur snuck away from their home in the netherlands to elope here in the city, and shared the news with their family & friends via these photos after they returned home!

congratulations & thank you for letting me help capture some of your wedding day! xoxo

central park proposal!

kirby set up a surprise weekend in NYC for megan, including this dress she’d been wanting, and a photoshoot to capture their time together. mid-shoot, he dropped down on his knee and proposed! proposals are so sweet. proposals that are caught on camera, are extra sweet:)

sam & ryan's nyc cookie quest

i always love meeting up with these two beauties. sam & ryan finished their great nyc cookie quest at one of my favorite spots, dangerously close to my place, and we added a few film photos to celebrate all that sugar.

more of their cookie tour here.

if you’re in nyc, let me know. we’ll grab cookies. and get photos while we’re at it;)

***while i predominantly shoot digital, i love to shoot film as well- contact me & well chat!

free fries in soho

HEADSHOTS. On the streets of New York. 99.999% of the time normal ol’ people tell me they are horrendously uncomfortable taking solo pictures - it feels bizarre and unnatural and vulnerable. “I don’t know what to do!” is *always* said. But these images always end up being some of my favorites- they end up feeling so amazing and raw and personal.

SoHo has some of the best architecture and variety, and makes the perfect backdrop for city shots.

Coming to NYC, or are you already here? HIT ME UUUUUP;)

*also, so thrilled that this next photo is featured in her book! also, a bunch of other photos from some of our shoots together in 2018…

pregnancy glow/sunrise glow

the most beautiful family-of-almost-five in central park. kristen is everything i hoped to look like whilst pregnant, but am positive i didn’t pull it off this well. also, for those who ask what to wear for family pictures, i may just say royal blue EVERY TIME NOW. CAN YOU BELIEVE THESE COLORS?!

looking to capture THIS time with your family? are you in new york city or visiting nyc? let’s do it!
