cory + chris: film!

During Cory and Chris’s shoot I wanted to play around with some film, so I brought out the Holga and Contax 645.  There is something so beautiful about film straight out of the camera. Here are a few of my faves…

First the holga, it looks so dreamy…

an engagement: cory + chris

I have been wanting to post this engagement session with Cory and Chris since the moment I took them, but I had such a hard time editing down my favorite images.  I just love them all!  Cory and Chris were so great to photograph… they both have such hip and effortless styles and were so easygoing, a photographer’s dream!  We spent the afternoon in Dumbo, and though the skies were grey, it created a perfect backdrop for the session.  Here is just a taste of a few of my favorites from the afternoon…

kristin + newt

This past weekend I did a mini shoot on the upper west side with Kristin and Newt who are getting married in one week!  These two are so genuinely nice and have such a classic style about them. I cannot wait to shoot their wedding, it is going to be beautiful! Here are just a few of my favorites from the afternoon…

travel: london town

A few weeks back, my husband and I were able to visit our old stomping ground.  You see, for some strange reason, we thought it a good idea to pick up and move across an entire ocean the day after our wedding… and so began our first two years of married life in London.  One of my brothers has moved there since we came back to the states and so we planned a trip to visit family, catch up with old friends and throw back a pint or two.  Here is a little look into our trip…

…a little picnic in hyde park…

…ok, if there is one place you MUST go, it is the Hummingbird Bakery in Notting Hill on Portobello Road. They tout themselves as an american bakery and if we ever had a craving for some “homemade” treats, this is the place we would go. Try not to go on a saturday because the line will be out the door. The cupcakes are amazing, especially the red velvet…

…just some lovely flowers at a corner in Chelsea…

…one of the highlights was going to the London Transport Museum (i know, kind of nerdy, but it was so cool. AND we never had a chance to visit in our 2 years in London)…

…so we stayed at my brother’s place for most of the trip, but we decided to treat ourselves and stay in a cool hotel for the last few nights. The Blakes Hotel in Chelsea did not disappoint! Each room is unique and decorated quite elaborately…

…and finally, saying goodbye at Paddington Station. Until next time…

… all in all it was a great trip! We got to see some familiar faces and visit old haunts. Can’t wait to go back, whenever that may be…
