The past few weddings I've been shooting in November have been very cold and rainy. This makes me jealous of California photographers since it's usually warm and sunny there. On the other hand, I get to be more creative in the portraits I take for my bride and groom. Lian and James' ceremony was held at St. Paul's Chapel at Columbia University. This was my first time there, and I was able to capture some really amazing architecture. Since the weather was ugly outside, we were able to get some really strong portraits around the chapel. Afterwards, the skies cleared up so we stopped by the Brooklyn Bridge, which was right by the reception at the Marriott in Brooklyn.

You can see Lian + James engagement session here that we took over the summer time.

The reception was right by the Brooklyn Bridge, so we went to take some night shots after the rain.

I am finally back in NJ after a few weeks of traveling to Illinois and several other weddings. I shot Esther and Jimmy's wedding a couple weeks ago, which we had a great time even though it was a rainy day. You guys might remember Esther and Jimmy from the engagement session I took of them over the summer. Hope you guys enjoyed Hawaii!

When I travel for weddings, sometimes I don't get to meet my clients until the day before the wedding. Esther and Ben welcomed us like family when we first met them. They invited us to all their family brunches and dinners, which motivated us to take some amazing pictures that weekend. Again, like the previous wedding, we had to take advantage of the beautiful foliage around us. We walked around University of Michigan's law quad to take a few portraits. Thanks to Alex Roy for flying in to help me out at this wedding.

On a side note, I am privileged to be chosen as a "featured artist" on the front page of Photographik - the elite photographers network.
