Where maple syrup comes from !

Vermont definitely had more than one surprise in store for us. Apart from being incredibly cold (temperature at night was below freezing point ! auch ! we did not come dressed for such occasion !) it turned out to be amazingly hospitable state. When we arrived to our motel the night before Leyla & Mike's wedding in September - it was already late evening. We found an envelope with our names and room keys waiting for us on the reception door. I can't really imagine similar situation taking place in NY/NJ ! Would anyone believe that the keys will really be picked up by the person they were waiting for ? Ha ha ! Fortunately, the next morning we happily said 'hello' to a warmer day, got some maple syrup at a local store and joined the wedding festivities with the bride and groom and their families. These are favorite images from both myself and my teammate Robin Roemer:

Leyla & Mike - Thank You for boldly following our directions and being so much fun !

It's all about the spirit ! Sabrina and Joe take on Central Park.

It's a cold cold October afternoon in New York. We arrive to our appointment with Sabrina and Joe thinking that it may be uncomfortably cold to shoot. To our surprise Sabrina is wearing a summer white dress and flip flops ! With fearless & beautiful bride like that and funky & cool groom the shoot simply can't go wrong. No one cares about the temperature anymore ! Here's what we got:

The last shot of the day was captured in the cab, driving back to find our cars parked somewhere in the streets:

Sabrina and Joe - you two were so awesome ! Yaaay to you and again big thanks for the great time we had together. More to come in May 2009 during your wedding day !

Megan and Patrick at Donald Trump National GC !

Lavish affairs at high end venues, beautiful brides and handsome grooms ! Cocktail hours with delicious hore'douvres, goreous center pieces, funky receptions with music delivered by the best bands in the industry. Times are good to be a cool wedding photographer in New York area. Megan and Patrick invited us to be a part of their special day and it surely was a pleasure for us to photograph their wedding. A little bit of what we fancy can be found below:

The Guys !

Moments before the ceremony:

This is how we do it !

Megan and Patrick - your day was so much fun ! We enjoyed all of it - including the 'almost roller coaster-like' ride in the golf cart through the Gold Club fields !
