Murad & Oksana’s Wedding in Prospect Park

Murad and Oksana got married just a week following Hurricane Sandy – on November 10th 2012. Luckily, Murad got some gas for his car a day befor, so we could go to Dumbo before the ceremony to take photos of two of them and of Murad’s parents. {that week New York streets were deserted as there was a huge gas shortage, and there were 5-6 hour lines by the gas-stations.} Afterwards we took a few more photos in Prospect park, Brooklyn, and finally they had a small ceremony with closest friends and family members held in the Grecian Shelter [also called the Peristyle] at the south side of the Park. I loved their ceremony officiant – Nancy Vargas. Here are their photos:

Sofia’s Bat Mitzvah at the Renaissance Hotel, White Plains.

Once in a blue moon i get to photograph Bar Mitzvahs and Bat Mitzvahs. I don’t think i would like to do this every weekend – these 13 year olds dance like crazy and, believe me, catching them in action is quite a work-out. Yet, doing just a few Bar Mitzvahs a year is great! I love the occasion itself – what a beautiful tradition this is! I also Love watching [and photographing] happy proud parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles.. Love being a part of such a wonderful family celebration, and of course LOVE taking photos of the kids. All in all, after photographing mostly weddings, taking kids’ & families’ photos is fun and refreshing!
Here are the photos from Sofia’s bat mitzvah, which took place this past December at the Renaissance Hotel in White plains. She’s a sweet, extremely bright, well-mannered beautiful girl, and photographing her, her lovely older sister and parents was such a pleasure!!!:)

Frances & Greg – September Wedding at Rhinecliff Hotel

Frances & Greg had their beautiful wedding this September at Rhinecliff hotel in Rhinebeck, New York. The hotel was steps away from an old train-station so we could go take bridal-party photos on the stairs overlooking the train tracks. There’s also Hudson river within a 5 minutes walk from the hotel, so we went there as well. [The view of the hotel itself is the best from the water.] Check out the photos!
p.s.:Hair and Makeup was done by Arnee Dodd, and she did an excellent job – Frances looked stunning all day long!:)
