This Saturday I did a wedding after-session with adorable newlyweds Lisa and Joe. They had a destination wedding on a Florida beach, but they wanted some more relaxed pictures of the two of them. They're both native New Yorkers, so we decided on Central Park. We got lots of great shots in the castle and the Shakespeare Garden, and it was so much fun watching the people picnicking on the lawn turn around to stare at Lisa and Joe. One kid even snapped a couple of pictures!

Yesterday I did a fun shoot with cute couple Sairina and Julie. They live in Brooklyn, so we shot at beautiful Prospect Park. When it started raining, we whipped out the umbrella and then ducked into a cool columned shelter. Sairina and Julie were so happy and loving, they were a joy to photograph.

In May I had the privilege of shooting a wedding in Israel with Larry from Deja Views. The groom was Larry's nephew, and I was very happy to help him record a special event in his own family. David is American and Orah is French, and they met after moving to Israel. The wedding guests were from three countries, so I got to practice all my languages! They are such a sweet and loving couple, and they had a very beautiful and emotional wedding. I'm going to share more photos than I should, but there was just so much going on that I can't help myself.
