Top of the Vail mountain, Colorado

I doubt it I can express with words how beautiful that place is. I’m a city girl and I still enjoy the sky on pieces in NY but going up there was epic! The colors in Vail are so clean and vivid, it helps to be a good photographer but you don’t have to be one for capturing breath taking images. We always work around and with light, avoid times of the day, and prefer the golden hour. But that was the first time I didn’t care that it’s not the Best time of the day, because I had the most wonderful clouds and couldn’t even pick a favorite image!

Quick note for the next day of our trip : Vail, CO 6am – 39F, 8 hours later in Utah – 104F….

 

Coney Island

This is New York City, but it’s not. It is even bigger capital of weirdos than Union square. And it’s probably the most colorful place in NY! Absolutely love it! And I couldn’t be any luckier with a couple that enjoyed the session as much as I did!

New Britain Museum of American Art New Britain, CT

It was hard to wait for this wedding to come! And as all of them the day flew out in a second. But luckily I have the photos to remember that every time I turned I saw a piece of art ready to be captured! It’s quite the awesome idea to have your wedding in a museum, especially like this one with so much natural light around. The wedding day was bathed all day long in sunshine! And the date? The couple chose to get married on the groom’s parents wedding day? People have these amazing ideas, it keeps surprising me!

 

Tampa, FL

Silence before the storm

 

No doubt it’s great to start the actual wedding season with not one but two Florida weddings. And to take a few days off with my family is actually a dream come true before the real heat of the year. The Orange park wedding will always be my first Florida wedding but the Tampa one introduced me to some quite different kind of people. It could all be explained by the fact that all of them were bikers… Unfortunately no bikes were a part of the wedding. Just their driver’s temperament! No doubt there was some drinking, tons of fun and on top of all at the end of the reception the bride and groom exchanged their outfits…

I take each wedding as Forrest Gump’s advice on life –it’s like a box of chocolates – you never know what you’re gonna get…

 

The Florida wedding

Orange Park, FL

We left NY when it was 20 °F and in Florida was 80 °F! So naturally we swam in the ocean the day after the wedding. It was a bit chilly but still is extraordinary to be able to do that in one country!

Florida is so wonderful to shoot! The air is different, the colors stand out more. I’ll always like Best NYC but to go and see other places for a change is quite pleasant and inspiring! 🙂

Roz and Steve are super laid back couple and they’d spend so much in planning their wedding. And I must admit I’m grateful to them and any other couple who books me out of NY cause I’m sure it’s even more difficult to choose someone from far away to be your photographer! So Huge Thank you guys!
