City Hall & The Seaport

Courtney & Jon got married at New York’s City Hall in February with just their baby with them. Afterwards they headed to The Red Lion in Greenwich Village for a few drinks and some photographs.

However this month they decided to have a big reception at Bridgewaters by the South Street Seaport to celebrate with all their friends and family. Courtney looks incredible in her modern J Crew ruffled dress and Miu Miu shoes- in fact so much so that someone stopped them in the street and asked if they were models or if they were actually getting married! The reception looks like it was a lot of fun – fake glasses, moustaches and lips never get tired!

Ballerina Beautiful

This ballerina shoot slay sme. Pretty, elegant and cool. I adore the whimsical yet funky feel of these and the backdrop with the pom poms, birdcages, clothes and industrial feeling location add some much needed quirkiness to the set.

Funky Fun Fair Pin Up

Minnie wanted some funky and fun pin up style images for her model portfolio, so she and photographer Christopher headed down to the beach where there was a fun fair – the perfect setting. She got all dressed up in authentic vintage outfits and they had an utter blast!

Music, Poetry, Green Balloons & Love

I always wonder, when a photographer gets married, how the hell do they decide who to shoot their own wedding? Well Laura & Dave of Blissed Photo had just this conundrum when they got married recently, but chose the amazing One Love Photo as they knew Heather & Jon would capture it perfectly. Being surrounded by all things wedding in their day to day lives, the couple had seen loads of brilliant ideas (and knew some to avoid!) in their own planning.

However they still knew what was important to them, music and poetry, and wanted to make sure this was brought into their day. “Dave plays sax in a few bands, so a trio of his best friends played during cocktail hour, and we hired an amazing funk band, Emerald City Throwdown, that had everybody dancing” Laura told me. ” We also wanted everyone to mingle, so we skipped the seating assignment and also had couches (from Bella Rugosa) to make the vibe more casual and open. I’m not really a poet, but I LOVE spoken word poetry, so I asked my 3 favorite poets if they would read at our reception.  Everyone went nuts because these poets are some of the best in the world (truly- they constantly travel and compete internationally).  I surprised Dave with a poem I wrote, and then he surprised me by having a good friend of his perform a new Pearl Jam song, Just Breathe, for our first dance. ”

“Marilyn! Marilyn!”

Rebecca’s retro taxi session is so marilyn! In fact while they were shooting people were driving past honking their horns and shouting “Marilyn! Marilyn!”

She wore a dress from a five & dime store (I don’t know what this is…we don’t have these in Londontown) and she made her own gorgeous hairpiece.
