Thomas and Critsey- Zee German & the American Cutie!

The 'Day After' wedding sessions are a great opportunity to .... play baseball, roll on the floor in white dress, exchange many hot kisses and capture some action that wouldn't normally (for variety of reasons) happen on a wedding day, even while wearing smokin' red hot shoes .....

So, when Thomas and Critsey announced their brief visit to New York, and expressed the wish to have such session we were thrilled, and tickled! And jittery, too- all things considered- they are both respectively very talented photographers on the way to stardom- for real!
We started in the lobby of the quite charming boutique hotel called Ravel Hotel. Thomas and Critsey looked quite sharp, in that artistic excitement we lost ourselves and moved around half of the furniture. We eventually did get yelled at by the very nice man, but hey, isn't it better to beg for forgiveness than ask for permission? :)

The true Nu' York experience wouldn't be complete without the yellow wagon. So- here it is:

Oh, and we really needed to document our couple with that thick cover of ivy, a botanical miracle rarely found in our polluted metropolis.

Did I say baseball? These two were an awesome team.

Critsey and Thomas- it was a blast! Thank you for this awesome opportunity of photographing you wonderful people!


  1. We are blown away...
    Usually we know what to expect when we see pictures being taken. Having these expectations exceeded by far is wonderful! You did an awesome job and we can't wait to see the rest. Thank you so much!

  2. Wow! Wow! Wow! I am blown away!
    I knew the photos would be great but OMG! these are amazing! You guys are so awesome! We had such a great time! You made us feel comfortable and relaxed to be photographed. Thank you so much!

    You guys are FABULOUS!

    Love, Critsey
