An Evening at Ariana’s

120226 153331 24mm f1 4

When I walked into Ariana’s meticulously designed apartment, I felt like I’d stepped into Paris, the way that Paris is at its best. She went a little closer to home to find that French style and passion with Eric, who is from Montreal. I’m already a bit silly with excitement for their May Metropolitain Club wedding. If you can wring this much style out of a Manhattan apartment, what can you bring to your wedding day?

Mad-Men-themed engagement shoot: Megan and Michael

RK2 6170

I was going to wait to post these … but I’m no good at being patient. Megan and Michael did such an awesome job at putting together a Mad-Men-themed engagement shoot, that I had to share some more. Everything from the newspapers they’re holding to the details of their clothing are either from around 1963 or, in the case of Megan’s dress, a prop from the show itself! And of course it helps to have access to the sorts of places the characters would actually frequent — first a 1960s subway car, from the New York Transit Museum, to the Gramercy Park Hotel — a bastion of New York style for most of the 20th Century.

Editing is crucial in photography, but they looked so fantastic and I had such a good time doing this that I’d be comfortable showing every last shutter click from this shoot. They even rocked the light tests. I can’t wait for their wedding in September.

At Play on Rooftops

Today I’m finishing my busiest stretch of the year — not only a double-wedding weekend, but also full-day weddings on a Thursday and a Tuesday. Yes, they aren’t just for weekends anymore. Along the way, I’ve created some photos that I cannot wait to share. Some will have to wait for their turn in the wedding queue, but here’s one of Mina and Igor. They had a fantastic wedding on Sunday, and as you might be able to tell from their posture, they had one heck of a first dance.
