PARTY ANIMALS

We have come across many four legged wedding guests over the years. Some appearances took us all by surprise,  others were planned cameos. Beloved family pets dressed to the nines and not to be forgotten. Whatever the case may be, pets and animals add a special element to any affair.

BOUTONNIERE LOVE

Years ago, the boutonniere was a single flower worn as decoration for a formal event. Most often it would be seen on a lapel of a man’s tux or suit, fastened by a pin or even pushed through a button hole. Nowadays, these floral accents are no longer a lonely flower but a super stylish accent.  From fiddle-heads and succulents to babies breath and berries anything goes! We are just gaga over these handsome works of art.

Ever After Bridal Photoshoot | Metropolitan Building, NYC

  If you’ve been following our work this past year, you’d know that we have had the honor of working with the always amazing Jen from Ever After Bridal before and when she messaged us to ask if we wanted to be the photographers to bring her next styled shoot to life, we didn’t hesitate to jump at the opportunity! And boy, our new photoshoot was the complete opposite of the previous one! The last time we worked together, the Mayflower Grace contributed a soft, pure white background to the elegant and lovely nature of the wedding gowns. The photoshoot this past November at the famous Metropolitan Building in NYC, we were going for a staunch juxtaposition of grime and beauty which really made our lovely brides pop. The crudeness and mismatched nature of the 3rd floor provided the perfect location to show off the timeless elegance of these beautiful Veluz Reyes dresses!   This shoot was every photographer’s dream! We had a beautiful venue, a talented cake artist, an incredible florist and to top it all off, Jen invited the beautiful Kristen Taekman from the Real House Wives of New York City to model for us! She also wanted […]

We had a great time exploring New England’s iconic Martha’s Vineyard with Jennifer and Dan for their Lifestyle Shoot last month!

These two are such a great couple!

Samantha and Austin | Engagement

What a perfect day for a fall engagement shoot! We spent the day on the lake with Samantha and Austin fishing, enjoying the foliage and making s’mores around the fire.
