Hurricane Joaquin threatened but had more bluster than bite. We were able to get outside briefly for a couple of photo sets. It was windy, a little chilly, but not too wet. 

Jackie was one of my most expressive brides ever –see the photos below. She has the range of Meryl Streep! Frank was quieter and sweet. Even making sure I was fed!

Loved working with these families and friends and hope to see them again!

Small wedding but big love!

Katy + Jordan in Cooperstown, NY

I have known Katy & Jordan for a few years now. Katy is smart, sweet and humble, Jordan has got a big heart, big appetite and a big sense of humor! Back on Halloween last year I shot their engagement session in a beautiful park in just under an hour. Fall colors were right at the peak so the photos were amazing!

It was a foregone conclusion that I would shoot their wedding so almost a year later I brought my partner Jed Smith photography along on the the long and scenic drive to Cooperstown, NY. 

Katy and Jordan trusted our vision and gave us a few minutes here ans there to spirit them away from the reception when the light and time was right. Their trust yielded dividends as this is amongst the most beautiful and poignant weddings we have ever shot!

Thanks and love to you both!

Yosemite National Park August 2015

I was at a medical imaging in dermatology conference near Yosemite NP. I was able to slip into the park every day for a few hours. My only regret is NOT catching a sunrise at Glacier Point. I have been lucky enough to have visited the park 4 or 5 times so I am certain to be back one day. Hopefully with my family! 

I would love to share the park with my kids. My parent taught me to appreciate the beauty in the world and I will continue to do the same with my boys!

Best,

Thomas

Adrianna @ 9 Days Old

Took photos of beautiful Adrianna in the town I spent my teenage years in –Carteret, NJ! Cooler still I was invited by someone I worked with and went on one date with “back in the day”. 

Anyway I had a great time with everyone and Adrianna’s 12 year old aunt Cameron was a huge help as Adrianna’s Mommy Kelly is still on the mend.

I think there were more outfit and scene change than any of my newborn shoots to date! I was invited to join the family for dinner (thanks Jonna!!) which was much welcome as I was tired and had an hour’s drive home.

Love to you all!

Jessica + RJ


I came to Jessica + RJ’s wedding knowing them already from an engagement shoot in Manhattan a half a year earlier! They knew me and trusted me and I wanted to wow them again on their wedding day!

Amazing wedding in Paramus…portraits of bride, groom and bridal party at Lambert Castle in Paterson (the bride and I shared the rental cost). The cherry blossoms were at their peak!! Loved their post wedding selfie –look for i in their 100 image gallery

We found a beautiful wooded spot behind the venue and I brought along a few props included my famous, red, heart-shaped umbrella. 

Jess was so excited with the photos I gave her that she picked out the images for her album faster than any bride ever –a record which still stands today. Go ahead –see if you can beat her!!

Melissa + David

Melissa + David’s wedding was a high energy affair at the the amazing Waterside (http://watersiderestaurantandcatering.com/) on the Hudson! 

Melissa and her sister jumping up and down on the bed before the wedding is about as much fun as I have ever seen a bride have immediately before her wedding.

David’s groomsmen were too generous with their supply of Hennessy –what a great afternoon and night!!
