Tara and Jacob's Wedding - May 2017
"Whew, what a couple. Equal parts profound, spiritual, playful and kind. We'd known them for quite some time and are so lucky to call them our dear friends. Tara actually sang in our wedding and has the most exquisite Appalachian-woman voice. Like her voice, their love is infectious, unique and inspiring. They'd been together for 10 years (Facebook let them know last month) when they got married and you can sense the foundation they've forged over many cities, states and lives together. They are truly a couple we admire!"

My favorite part of the night took place on the dance floor. Everyone had a blast and there was even a break dancing competition!"

"What do you do when your wedding day, a day that you have been planning months, suddenly calls for rain? You make the best of it and that's exactly what Erin and Kevin did!... They held their wedding reception at the lovely Full Moon Resort in the Hudson Valley. For their portraits, the newlyweds came prepared with a pair of Hunter wellies and borrowed a clear umbrella. I have to say that the rain adds a bit of a romance and playfulness to their images that I truly love so much. Inside the tented reception space, it was beautifully decorated with warm fall hues, sunflowers in the centerpieces and of course, lots of love.... even though it rained throughout the entire day, it was completely beautiful!

Bright colors, lots of laughter, fantastic friends and family and a laid back attitude that was right up our alley. Watching Sarah's face light up when she saw Jeff for the First Look is something that every Groom should be so lucky to see. We are so glad that they honored us with photographing their wedding.

I had such a great time meeting with them and their families during our initial consultation and we were both totally on the same page in terms of absolutely loving the aesthetic of Full Moon Resort. What made it somewhat different for me was that my own wedding was going to be held at Full Moon Resort the week before! Full Moon Resort is a beautiful wedding venue tucked in the Catskill Mountains. The natural beauty there is breathtaking. I really love the early spring as well because it's getting warm and everything is beginning to bloom and come back to life after the coldness of winter. It's really quite beautiful! Emily and Ryan are such an awesome couple as well. It's so apparent that they have such a strong network of family and friends and it was great to witness and be a part of."

Mari & Karen's Wedding - August 2012
"Mari and Karen's wedding was one of the best we've ever been to! . but we might be biased because we also had the honor of being guests. :) Mari and Karen are two of our closest friends so we were thrilled to photograph their special day... Family and friends came together to create the most touching, creative and unique wedding ceremony and celebration. There were so many personal touches and thoughtful gestures... It was a fun-packed day - we bought our photo booth along, they had a instructor lead the square dancing and because most guest stayed overnight in cabins, we ended the wedding around the campfire and playing pool in one of the barns. We love these two! "

Jeanette & Graham's Wedding - August 2012
" I first met Jeanette and Graham last year...for an engagement session complete with NYC skyline and a spin on an old fashioned Carousel. Although their mountain wedding at the Full Moon Resort in the Catskills had a completely different look, the love that these two had for each other was the same if not stronger then it was a year ago. What a fun couple to work with! Like most of the weddings I photograph, their friends and families came from all over the country and beyond to be a part of this wedding. "

Courtney & Colin's Wedding - July 2012
"When two artists call you to photograph their wedding, you know it’s going to be good! Especially when one of them is a fiber artist and will make by hand various elements of the wedding decor: the curtain tiebacks, the pillows. And when the other is a rocking dancer! And especially when the both of them are the nicest people ever, completely in love and surrounded by some of the happiest and loveliest friends and family. Such a great day!"

"I am so excited to share the photographs from my weekend in New York photographing a very sweet loving wedding ceremony! The whole weekend went by so fast, but so wonderful... It is a beautiful nature resort set along the Esopus Creek in the Catskill Mountains. It is such a remote peaceful getaway... I could have just hung out by the creek and skipped rocks for hours."

I am giving John’s Mother full credit for creating the perfect mood with her extraordinary s’more bar idea! Seriously, have you EVER seen anything more beautiful?!

Emily & Matt's Wedding - July 2011
"One great thing about getting married at Full Moon is guests have the opportunity to reserve the entire place – cabins, music venue, bonfire, fresh water pool, grounds, etc – for a whole weekend, if they like. The day before the wedding, Emily saw this short bus driving by. She flagged it down & hired the driver to take her and her bridesmaids to the ceremony site. Quite an entrance."

Casey & Justin's Wedding - July 2011
"[I'’d] been looking forward to Casey and Justin’s wedding at Full Moon, in the Catskill Mountains. It was everything I expected: stunning, relaxed and utterly joyful. The bride has a gift for finding four-leaf clovers, and found one without even looking right before walking down the aisle. That about sums it up. Congrats Casey and Justin – it was such a pleasure to be part of your day."

As Ms. Sexton emerged from a forest path in an ivory backless ball gown, the pretend Snow White truly resembled a fairy tale princess. That is, until she lifted her skirt to give her 103 guests a peek at red-sequined sneakers....."

Lucy & Joe's Wedding - September 2010
" Lucy and Joe are a perfect fit. I suspected this immediately when I initially encountered them together for their "FIRST LOOK" and it became more and more evident as the day went on. Lucy's Yin curls up to Joe's Yang. Her moon softens his sun. Their ceremony was performed by Lucy's brother, Gordon, and it was tranquil, yet at the same time powerful. You got the sense that one cannot exist without the other, while each remain strong in their own right...."

Amy & Adam's Wedding - August 2010
"Really, from the beginning we weren't sure what type/size wedding we wanted to have, but when we realized it was going to be on the larger more expensive side, we felt it conflicted with our values to have so much consumption and waste for a single party. So we decided that if we were going to be spending all that money, we at least wanted it to go to support things and people that we believed in, which to us meant being a good local business who supports their community and respects the earth. It was one of the main reasons we picked Full Moon....."

That’s exactly the way the story goes for Lovisa & Christopher, a wonderfully warm and sincere twosome who have found the deeper meaning of a love cultivated over years of time. You can see how perfectly matched they are for one another by the way they laugh, hold one another, and care for their families....."
