Stretching it On the Street: Joseph Encinia YOGA

Joseph Encinia is the 2011 bikram world yoga champ ... and a few Fridays ago, we did a photosession in the city.  Words cant describe how amazing it was to see how effortlessly he would go into the yoga postures. His balance of strength and flexibility is absolutely beautiful!

A Sweetly Sentimental Central Park Wedding :: Photography

Last Sunday, I photographed simply sweet Central Park Wedding for Jess and Amy.  They married at the Conservatory Gardens in Central Park, and afterwards, we took a stroll for an hour en route to the Boat Basin.  And during the stroll I would pull them aside randomly for photos.  There were so many elements of thoughtfulness including:

* her dress was made of silk her father had purchased for her mother when he was stationed in korea in the 1970s
* the dress was handmade by a friend using her mom's antique sewing machine
* the violin played at the ceremony belonged to her father
* the bouquet was homemade
* they gave away m&ms that had their faces custom printed on them
* they gave away spray fans that wld blow mist to cool off

Southern Couple (SoCo!) :: New York City Hall Wedding Photography

I had such a terrific and fullsome day yesterday.  In the afternoon I photographed, Monica and Hugh, a couple from the South, who decided to trek up north to marry at City Hall.  The weight time was somewhat substantial (a last chance before the week ends to marry rush?), but we managed to do so much in a short amount of time.  I loved talking to Monica about vintage necklaces, freelance writing and hot dogs.  And Hugh remained cool and collected the entire time, and would even quote Zoolander.

Central Park Elopement Photography and Portraits

Jeanny and Victor, a lovely couple married in Central Park a few wknds ago - they had a short and sweet ceremony, presided by Reverend Annie Lawrence.  I especially loved how they chose to integrate Prayer of Saint Francis into their ceremony (where there is darkness ever light :-)

Following the ceremony, we took a stroll around the park to snap a few photos!
