JUST A CASUAL BRIDES FEATURE...NBD

We caught up with our friends at BRIDES.com to chat about the do’s and dont’s of finding the perfect wedding photographer. Not sure if those editors knew they’d be in for such an earful, but once we got talking, we had a TON of best practices to share. After all, we’ve been through this process countless times and we know first-hand that good vendor/couple vibes are LIFE. Check out the full novel... I mean… article here and share with friends who could also use a few tips for their own vendor selection process. Happy reading :)

INBAL AND CARISSA - PLEASE TAKE A BOW

Don’t let the big tires and tech gear fool you—we’re photographers, but we’re girly girls at heart. So when we see a gown like Carissa Bentley’s knockout number, we put the cameras down and take the requisite moment to swoon in the presence of such perfectly layered lace.

 

 

FOR THE LOVE OF THE GAME

She wants to do an e-shoot. He wants to watch the game. I'd say this is a win-win <3

MEDITERRANEAN IN MANHATTAN

Our approach to this editorial shoot began with a question and a challenge to us as creatives—how can we evoke the graceful, iconic allure of the Mediterranean, while based in the middle of Manhattan?

THE WONDER OF THE NORTH WOODS

Having lived in NYC for the past nine years, I've long considered myself a city "pro" for at least the last eight. Now... imagine my utter shock and chagrin as I sit here, tail tucked between my legs, admitting that I only recently learned of an entire corner of Manhattan that I've never explored, let alone wondered about, until last week. Formerly unbeknownst to me, there's a magically lush, suspiciously quiet, surprisingly un-urban, enchanted forest that sits right smack in the middle of the city.

PRE-SEASON PLAYDATES

When its 65 degrees in early March, a sort of frenzy emerges as (otherwise) social beings escape from their lairs, in search of fresh, coat-less adventures and the slightest taste of anything resembling Vitamin D. Whether a product of global warming or a late-winter mercy gift from God Himself, these warm weather gems call for nothing short of excessive celebration.

Let’s just cut to the chase—this is the future Mr. and Mrs. Johnny Keyser—winners of some sort of genetic lottery that produces superhumans who are both beautiful and kind. Strange, right?

To be fair, the ladies of Lucky You Events do far more than "bibbidi-bobbidi-boo" to plan the perfect destination wedding, but the final result is simply magic.

That's why we're proud to announce our partnership with the extraordinaire planners of Lucky You Events—designers and curators of dream weddings in the French Riviera and Provence. See below for their latest announcement, as featured on Weddings in the French Riviera:

luck of the irish

I know St. Patrick isn't the same as St. Nick, but something about today actually feels like Christmas. We had the privilege of shooting the surprise elopement of Belfast's most beautiful couple (clearly no bias here at all). Otherwise known as the new Mr. and Mrs. Adams.
