Queens Botanical Garden Wedding

Tashie and Ronnie Married! {Queens, New York}

I am sure you guys remember Tashie and Ronnie!

They are basically the sweetest!

This was my first time photographing a reception at the Queens Botanical Gardens. I am now officially in love with it. And then there’s the fact that Tashie and Ronnie looked lovely in every spot I put them in, so they deserve at least half the credit! The ceremony location was under shaded trees, in the wedding garden. A beautiful open space full of flowers that allows for beautiful wedding photos! The reception was just as adorable and personal as the ceremony, so many perfect little details!

Maybe my very favorite part of the day, though, was watching Tashie and Ronnie exchange their vows. They were so heartfelt and unique, and the way that they made each other smile (and, at times, laugh out loud) during the ceremony is truly a testament to their love and the marriage before them. Also the way they included their daughters in the ceremony was so sweet I think I teared up!

New York Wedding Photographer

Braden and Phillip Married! {Bocas Del Toro, Panama}

Meet Phillip and Braden!

They are stupid cute together!

I went to photography school with Braden and after school we both moved to NYC and kept in touch. I was so so excited for him when he first told me about Phillip, and even more excited after I met him. They really are the perfect match, both genuine, easy-going, and the way they laugh together makes it obvious they’ll have a long and wonderful life together!! When they asked me if I would photograph the wedding I was flattered, and then when they said it was going to be in Panama I thought I might explode with excitement!

I had an absolute blast getting to know their friends and family and had even more of blast photographing their good looking faces. What a joy it is to photograph and be a part of a friends wedding day! I don’t think I’ve had any other couple enjoy their ENTIRE day as much as the two of them. Oh how I WISH you could have seen them at their reception! They’ve got MOVES!

I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I enjoyed making them!
