15 Moments That'll Make You Smile — Yearly Review: Best of 2017

With the coming of the new year and end of the busy wedding season comes lots of emotions, but most of all satisfaction. There's no other way to say it: 2017 was the year of badass weddings and couples. Thank you to all of the amazing people who trusted me to photograph their love and memorialize the best day of their lives.

Sometimes, getting away from the hustle and bustle of the big city is needed. That's why I was so ecstatic when Jessica and Ricardo inquired for their wedding being held at The Vineyards at Aquebogue. Wine, Long Island, and a day full of love? YES PLEASE. The weather couldn't have been more perfect for this beautiful celebration.

Sometimes the extravagance of a wedding is incredibly overwhelming, and that's okay. That's what eloping is for! And it's exactly what Glenivette and Douglass did in the bustling courthouse of City Hall. Before this day, I had never been to the marriage bureau, so when we walked through security (I actually got yelled at for taking a photo, lol) and saw the amount of people waiting to be called, I was so surprised! Apparently, Friday mornings are prime time to get married ;)...

If you know my work or anything about me, you know that I LIVE for details and portraits. So when Elizabeth and Ryan came to me and told me that they didn't care for either of those and wanted to focus on the party, I have to be honest — every fiber in me wanted to run. Instead, I decided to challenge myself and threw my usual method out the window (although I did convince them to let me take a few portraits before the party began). And I'm so glad I did!...
