North Fork Portrait Photographer-Little Ava and her sweet family!-5/12/15

I always love when families have animals. They make family sessions so fun! Sweet Little Ava had such a way with her doggies Murray and Henry, it was such a joy to watch and photograph their friendship. She is such a fun-loving little girl! We got to play on the beach, throw rocks in the water, fill our shoes with rocks and just enjoy the beautiful North Fork weather we have been so lucky to have lately! Here are a few of my favorites to share:

North Fork Wedding Photographer-Michelle and Michael’s Land’s End Wedding-3/14/15

bride and groom in love portriat

There could not have been a better way to start my Wedding Season than with Michelle and Michael’s Pi Day Wedding at Land’s End in Patchogue, NY! They have something sweet about them that you don’t see every where you go or in every one you meet. They met when they were in 8th grade so they have known each other for quite some time. Michelle’s Mom said it best during her speech at their ceremony so here is her rendition:

During 8th grade, Michelle was hosting a party at our home for her friends. She decorated the basement, turned on the music, got out the snacks, & was all set.

“As her friends arrived, the doorbell would ring, I would open the door, and tell each friend to go downstairs. 
The little party was in full swing. 

Then the doorbell rang & I opened the door to a smiling young boy wearing glasses. I let him in & instructed him to go downstairs. 

A few minutes later, Michelle came upstairs and said; 
“There’s a boy downstairs and I don’t know who he is”. 
I told her to go back downstairs & see if any of her friends knew him. 

A few minutes went by, Michelle came upstairs again. 
She said; “ No one knows who he is”. 
Again, I said, “go talk to him and find out who he is”. 

A few minutes later, Michelle & her girlfriend came upstairs, 
Giggling like little 8th grade girls do, Michelle said; 
“Mom. Really. We don’t know him”. 

I proceeded downstairs to talk to him. 
I said; “Hello, I’m Michelle’s Mom”. 
He said; “ Oh, hello, I’m Michael”. 

As it turned out, a mutual friend of theirs had invited Michael to the party, but didn’t come himself. 

Little did Michelle & Michael know that this was the beginning of a life time together.

Now this just might be one of the cutest first meeting stories I’ve ever heard! And here is Michelle’s sweet words to sum them up even more perfectly!

“At the time, I did have blue hair. Mike and I were always dying our hair crazy colors. Mike had a Mohawk all through high school and into freshman year of college. It was blue, green, orange/red, and his personal favorite, checkerboard. He had/has many face and ear piercings, at least 10 not including his ears. He’s taken out most of them, but still holds on to his few favorite. I can’t remember half the colors my hair was. The thing is, people never expected us to be as nice as we were. People just assumed we were the trouble makers, but Mike was actually an AP student in high school and graduated number 10 in our class. Neither of us ever had a detention either. Mike and I always loved to show people that its not about what you look like on the outside.  Family always told us we would look back and regret our hair colors, his piercings, our clothes; but when we look back we wouldn’t change a thing.”

These two are something special just as I said above. I feel very lucky to have met them and their wonderful families and friends! First off I don’t know why all groomsmen don’t wear Super Hero shirts under their tuxes! Secondly they were truly one seriously FUN group! I was smiling from ear to ear the entire time. A special shout out to West Sayville Country Florist for creating beautiful flower arrangements and to LI Sound Dj’s for keeping the music going and the guests on the dance floor every second of the night! And Audrey’s Fine Baked Goods for a beautiful and very yummy Cake! Here are just a few of my favorite’s to share from their Pi Day celebration:

North Fork Newborn Photographer-The Culp Family Session-2/6/15

I could not have asked for a better way to start the new year! I got an email from The Culp Family letting me know there was a new baby on the way and would I come to photograph him when he was born, of course I will I said! I hadn’t seen the Culp family since their first son was born and I did his newborn session four years prior. So to say I was excited to see everyone again was an understatement! I love watching my clients families grow and I feel lucky to be included in their lives to document it! Here are a few of my favorites to share:

North Fork Wedding Photographer-Margaret and Brendan’s Raphael Vineyard Wedding-11/15/14

Margaret and Brendan got married at the beautiful Raphael Vineyard in Peconic, NY. Their ceremony was at St. Patrick’s Church in Southold. The late Fall weather cooperated perfectly for them with the sun shining and a gorgeous golden glow at sunset! They had their family and closest friends by their sides to help celebrate the day and that they did! The flowers were done by Flowers by Rosemarie and Margaret had a special broach that was her Mother’s that she attached to it to have her close to her heart on her special day. It was a really sweet sentiment that touched my heart. The Metropolitan Players kept everyone on the dance floor and an absolutely perfectly created cake by Have Your Cake Ltd. was the perfect ending to the day. I was also lucky enough to have my good friend Joe Appel by my side to second shoot with me for my last wedding of the season. It was just awesome! Here are a few of my favorites to share:

Margaret - We LOVE all the pictures – Sherry and Joe were great to work with and they really captured the day!

Sherry - Thank you Margaret! Joe and I had a great time working with you and Brendan as well! It was a beautiful celebration for sure! Merry Christmas!

Brendan Green - I love all the photos Sherry! Thanks again.

Sherry - Aww thank you Brendan! I’m so happy to have gotten to work with you and Margaret! Have a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year!
