Back in March I shared some images with you of my friends Stephanie and Bromley. She was the one with the big belly that wasn't full of beer. It was actually full of Anjanelle. Simone and I were recently invited to dinner at home of Stephanie's parents. If you don't already know, let me tell you something about eating dinner in an Italian home. Prepare yourself, don't eat for a day or two in advance. I'm convinced that there is a restaurant attached to their home that I can't see. The food comes in stages, and it keeps coming, and coming, and coming and coming, just like that crazy bunny in the battery commercial. No matter how many times I experience it, I just can't believe it. It wouldn't be so bad if the food didn't taste good, but everything is awesome.
I won't tell you what was on the menu because I'm starting to get hungry, so I'll just introduce you to Anjanelle aka "Chunka" (a nickname this poor baby was given by Stephanie and Simone)

Anjanelle in a deep conversation with her brother Nicholas.

Hunger, gas, sleepy, I'm not sure which.

Grandpa to the rescue!

Tanyanika and Trevor

Tanyanika and Trevor's wedding is the first Thursday wedding I've ever attended, not to mention photographed. They decided to keep it small and quick, I'll let the photos in the slide show give you a "clue" as to just how small and quick it was. I did have a guest photographer for the day. This turned out to be none other than the mother of the Bride. It's not like I could say I was surprised because Tanyanika actually warned me about her when we first met. But she's a great person and she definitely has an eye for the camera.

After taking some photos we hit Coco Roco in Cobble Hill, a favorite of Trevor and Tanyanika. I always love a restaurant where crayons on the tables are part of the decor. It allows you to be creative while you eat. And in this case it lets the mothers of the bride and groom share their greatest wedding wishes with everyone. (see the slide show)

Remember that "clue" I spoke of? Check out the slide show to find it.
It also happens to be my guest photographer that picked the song.

My new neighbor Aquari decided to drop in, or, "drop out" a week ahead of schedule. Dede and Jamar's bundle blessed us with his presence on the 21 st, coming in at 7 lb, 3 oz and 20", after keeping his mother busy for about 10 hours. The photos below were taken on his first full day.

He's a really cute kid.

Chantal and Ken

Recently I had the pleasure of shooting with my friend Jennifer Davis again. I always have a great time when I work with Jen.
Chantal assumed her role as the beautiful bride, but I have to say Ken held his own when he decided to and some of his culture to the day when he proudly wore a Kilt instead of a tux. The couple began their day getting ready at the Hotel Giraffe. The ceremony was held at the Marble Collegiate Church in Manhattan. A beautiful church that has that "AWE" effect the first time your enter it. And if that wasn't enough, they then held their reception at the Angel Orensanz Foundation in lower Manhattan. Below are a few images from the day, if you want to see more you should check out Jennifer's blog, she's even got a slide show.
