Brian + Ted | Braynt Park | New York City | Gay Wedding

Thursday, May 31st, 2012

When Brian wrote me about his and Ted’s simple, intimate wedding in Bryant Park followed by dinner at Aureole, it sounded just perfect. And it was. Brian and Ted have been together for 17 years. When New York finally legalized same-sex marriage, they thought, what the heck, let’s make this official. It was one of May’s brightest, sunniest days. Suit jackets were abandoned and groups gathered in the shade. One by one, Brian and Ted’s friends from all over the country trickled in, hugging, congratulating, and tearing up while greeting happy couple. I was in tears within 5 minutes of meeting the couple, and I didn’t even know them! The ceremony was simple and sweet and included a children’s story and readings from friends. The dinner at the impeccable Aureole, was filled with laughter, stories from Brian and Ted’s hay days, and debates about where the gay movement really started (New York City!). I’m proud to present photos from this beautiful, heartfelt wedding. Enjoy the joy.

Jesse + Luisa | Epic Vietnam Engagment Shoot | Saigon

Thursday, May 17th, 2012

I’ve known Jesse and Luisa since my days in Boston. I don’t know what else to say, expect they are totally badass! For the past three years they’ve been traveling the world together from Mongolia to Taiwan to Bali, and so many places in between. They eventually settled in Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City), Vietnam where they have been teaching English. But next month, Jesse and Luisa are finally moving back to the states. They will be tying the knot in Jesse’s beautiful hometown, Cape Cod, and I will be photographing their wedding. I’m honored and thrilled to be a part of what is bound to be one of the most colorful weddings I’ve done. After years of traveling, they intend to settle down for a while in, none other than Jamaica Plain, Boston the very neighborhood in which we first met and became friends. I had been traveling for 3.5 months before arriving to Saigon to Jesse and Luisa. I was freshly injured from a motorbike accident in Cambodia, and they took me in, and took care of like good friends do! We had such a fun time doing their engagement photos, which is ultimately the most epic engagement shoot I’ve done since it was in one of the craziest cities in the world over a three day period. Some of Luisa’s close Vietnamese friends volunteered to do her hair and make-up before the shoot, and truly felt like it was the wedding day itself. The shoot also included giant beers, (see last photo) which is pretty epic. Jesse and Luisa, I love you dearly, and I can’t wait to celebrate with you and document your day. Cheers to the memories we created in Vietnam, in celebration of your love. XO.
