Sarah + Neil

Going through these photos again, I can’t help but chuckle to myself. Sarah and Neil are a hoot. Their love is their own, and it’s filled with sarcasm, laughter, and deep friendship. I flew down to their home town of Winston Salem to spend a day (or two) with them, a prospect which can be somewhat nerve wrecking as I was crashing at their house, and after a year or so of emailing back and forth, we never actually met until this day. Sarah and Neil showed me an unforgettable time, by the time the day was over I felt so myself around them that I was yell-whisper joke cursing at them. I do that sometimes. We had a sweet potato featured dinner, got a little tipsy and even more silly, stayed up late talking like old friends, and by the end of it they almost had me moving to the South!

Kira + Scott

Though Kira and Scott have known each other since high school, they look at eachother as if their love is a new discovery. Alone, they are both kind, extraordinary people, and together, they really are a revelation.

You have given others an opportunity to look into what is an amazing love between 2 ” good people “. Your pictures need no words. They express what is shared and felt between Kira and Scott. You see what they feel. I know you will capture all that and more at the wedding … we can’t be more thrilled and happy that it will be YOU that will give us all a visual montage and record of this happiest of times !!
God Bless, with great thanks.

Punam Bean. Amazing! Thank you!

Nicole + John

When Nicole and John are together, they radiate peace. When they look at each other, earth moves, and everyone else might as well be chop suey. And not only is Nicole graceful in a Mae West kind of way, she has impeccable taste. This wedding, and their love is a dream.

[…] was arranged (thank you Mum and Dad) and bags were packed. And what a wedding it was…Nicole and Johns Hamptons wedding was divine. The styling was beyond chic and their love, like Punam has said on her […]

Madeline + Jared

Madeline and Jared found each other, and before they knew it, they knew. Their first date lasted a whole day, and there it was. They haven’t known each other long, but what they have is so rich and deep, it seems obvious to me that they would be getting married. They hold each other in arms, and they breathe each other in, and I felt bad interrupting it so we could maneuver in the somewhat pouring rain. I came to their beautiful city of Buffalo, which I never had given much thought. In the lush wetness of the world that day, it felt like a rainforest, with waterfalls springing over giagantic slate cliffs, and Niagra beating away at the border.

Also, Madeline is a writer, blogging a novel as it unfolds week by week. How awesome is that???

Jared and Madeline these pictures came out beautiful,I will always remember when you were over here hanging out with Chaz, you were always a great kid. I wish you both the best and your new journey in Life together. :)

Valerie + Mario + Summer

When you know you know. Valerie and Mario have been together for a couple of years, but when they look at each other, sparks fly. Seriously, they are audible. All I know is that I lifted up my camera and it took my breath away how truly connected their souls are, a bond deepened immeasurably by their daughter, Summer. I get this sense from both of them that they are inwardly fist pumping and cheering their fate. They have each other, they have this amazing daughter Summer, and they have their whole lives ahead of them to love, support and rely on each other. It’s a beautiful thing.
