Gina & Jislain are Married!


Sometimes love is found in the most obvious places, and sometimes it's not. A story of chance, where a string of events leads two people into the same place at the exact same time, and above all else, in another part of the world. Had the stars not aligned, they may have never crossed paths again. But when I met Gina and Jislain, I knew in just moments of watching them, that their love was never by chance, only by fate. It happened unexpectedly in Hamburg, Germany. When Gina overheard Jislain order a Strawberry Daiquiri from afar, it brought the first of many smiles to her face. After striking up conversation and an exchange of numbers, it wasn't long before these two were spending every day together in Germany. Falling for each other didn't take long. Talking about all of life's biggest questions, like how many kids they wanted, and even naming their future pup Tiga... Soon enough they were traveling back to NYC where they would continue their lives together. 

Gina & Jislain, thank you so much for bringing me to New York and allowing me to document such a beauitful day in your lives. Your love for each other and the people around you is inspiring and I was blessed to spend this day capturing all of it. My heart is overflowing and I am so excited to see what adventures come your way as mari et femme!

Caroline & Adam are Married!


Caroline and Adam were my very first couple booked for 2017. In fact, when Caroline reached out to me in 2016 (at 2:05am in the morning), her email started with "Happy New Year!!" because she knew that the first of the new year, I would start booking for the following year to come. Lets be honest though, I was anxiously awaiting that email too! These two are THE cutest thing on Earth and I knew I had to be a part of this day! 

I feel like Caroline and Adams first conversation with each other describes them perfectly. Which is why I have to tell you about it! It went a little something like this...

As Caroline was leaving Peppers Tavern in Ocean City she shouted, "Hey you! You're cute!"

In reply, Adam pointed at her and shouted back, "Hey! so are you!"

After their first official date at Burley Oak Brewing Co., the rest is history. After dating for some time, Adam took Caroline by the Peppers Tavern before sadly, it was being torn down. Posted up outside of the bar was a big sign that said "Hey! Your'e Cute!" From there he got down on one knee and asked Caroline to marry him <3

As owner and designer of her handmade fine jewelry company called CFD Fine Jewelry, I had no doubt that this wedding was going to be just as beauitful and creative as her own artistry. I loved that she made both her and Adams wedding bands and all the earrings for her bridesmaids. Caroline shares her studio space with Brian Robertson, owner of Berlin Printery. So of course, her invitation suite was made right there in shop by Brian himself! So much thoughtful and creative detail went into this day. Another meaningful addition to the day was their Wedding Ale brewed just for their big day by Burley Oak Brewing Company. And who better to grace the label of their beer can then their very own pup Marlo! 

I could spend forever writing about how every detail had a special and meaningful story. But Ill mention one last thing, and its a pretty big one! What's so cool is that when Caroline and her sister were younger, they actually worked at Furnace Town and dressed the part in the 1800's clothing. They have a beauitful black and white photo of them walking towards the furnace and I was honored enough to recreate that photo for them on the wedding day. I think we got pretty darn close to the original! <3

Caroline and Adam, you guys are goofy and I love it! You radiate joy and it spreads to those around you. Its contagious, inspiring, and I was blessed to document the immense love you have for each other. Hope you two are having an amazing honeymoon in Hawaii!
