Camille and Keith

Camille, Keith and myself, first met at a Starbucks. People seem to look for any excuse to go to Starbucks. But all jokes aside, they're a great couple. They decided to take their engagement photos at the church where they'll be exchanging vows in August of 2007. St. James AME happens to be the same church in which they met as kids and still attend. And did I mention that Camille's father is also a Minister there? Stay tuned, this story is just getting started.

Spring Time in December

The middle of December hosted the wedding of Maritza and Miguel. Not that you could tell it was December, the weather was assume. I'm glad Jennifer Davis asked me to be her second shooter for the day. The ceremony was held at St. Joseph's Church in The Village. This church holds the title of the oldest Catholic Church building in Manhattan, and has some of the most beautiful stain glass I've ever seen. After the ceremony, the great weather allowed us take some shots in Washington Square Park. The day rounded up with the reception being held at Rosa Mexicano. I really have to make it my business to go back there for a meal.

Jennifer at work!!

Sierra Steals the Show

When my friend Leon asked me to take photos of his family, I had no idea his daughter Sierra would be such a natural in front of the camera. But after a few minutes it became very clear to me that Kim (mom), had something to do with that. The shoot took place in Ft. Greene Park, and considering it was the middle of December, it was a great day.
Sierra knew exactly when to pose for the camera, (when she felt like it). She knew it was all about her. We had a great time. If you want to see more, check out the slideshow.

Gloria and Chad

When I was younger, I would have never thought I'd be spending my weekends having the time of my life attending a wedding, let alone photographing one. I acted as second shooter for my friend Jennifer Davis at the wedding of Gloria and Chad. Their families are amazing, and the celebration after the ceremony made it very hard not to put down my camera and join in. Here are a few of the many moments I had the honor of capturing.

Sabine and Steven

Sabine, Steven and I went to a park a short walk from the school where they first met in Springfield, Queens, to take their engagement photos. This park happens to have a stream that empties into pond, or a lake, I'm not sure at what point a pond becomes a lake. But anyway, as we were leaving Sabine saw a turtle in the stream, underwater and on its back. We could tell by the "Awe!!" expressed by Sabine that she was concerned. Well no, neither Steven nor I waded into the water to flip it over. It didn't look upset and I was convinced it was taking in the sun anyway. Sorry, no pictures of the turtle.

With less than a year to go before their July nuptials, Sabine and Steven are ready to go. Hopefully by then Steven will accept the fact that he doesn't have an engagement ring.
