Tompkins Square Halloween Dog Parade 2014, East Village, New York

On Saturday, Tompkins Square Park in New York's East Village hosted the 24th annual dog halloween costume parade. According to CNN, it's the largest dog costume parade in the world. It's also arguably the most adorable. Here are some of my favorites from the day. Pity Dog Halloween only comes once a year.

Steve and Nick's Wedding - Central Park, New York

Talk about an amazing destination wedding. On September 20th, Steve, Nick and 25 of their closest friends traveled from London to New York celebrate their union at the Cop Cot in New York's Central Park. They couldn't have asked for a nicer day. With perfect weather, lots of laughter and so many excited friends, the wedding was a joy to attend. Congratulations to Steve and Nick and thank you for your hospitality and the huge honor of photographing your wedding! 

We started the day with some wedding portraits in Steve and Nick's hotel room at the Viceroy in midtown Manhattan. The light from the huge windows was fantastic.  

After a few pre-wedding portraits, we headed downstairs to Kingside to meet the guests for Champagne and pastries.

Afterwards, everyone headed over to Central Park for the wedding ceremony.

But first a few photos. (I'm always a sucker for the selfie shot.) 

Steve and Nick's wedding took place Inside the Cop Cot, a rustic wooden gazebo on the crest of a hill at the southeast corner of Central Park  

Rev. Annie Lawrence gave a beautiful ceremony. 

Group photo with all of the guests. 

And here's a picture of me taking a picture of them. Thanks for the behind the scenes shot, Rev. Annie Lawrence! 

Congratulations Steve and Nick! Thanks again for inviting me to be a part of your wedding day!

September 11th, a Tribute in Light

Tonight, New York will remember the lives lost on September 11th with the annual Tribute in Light memorial. The Tribute is a breathtaking art installation made of 88 xenon light cannons which shine from the shadow of the World Trade Center into infinity. The lights can be seen from 60 miles away. I've spent the last two September 11ths capturing images of the display. Here are some of the better images from the Brooklyn waterfront (2012) and Lower Manhattan (2013).

Event: Pooja and Chris's Wedding Rehearsal Dinner

Last Friday night I had the pleasure of capturing the memories from Pooja and Chris's wedding rehearsal dinner aboard the Atlantis cruise yacht in New York. After a few portraits by the waterfront in Jersey City, we set sail along the Manhattan shoreline, with a trip up the Hudson and the East Rivers and a grand finale at the State of Liberty. Perfect weather, an amazing party and a very, very happy couple. Congratulations to Pooja and Chris!

Their wonderful family came in from around New York, Connecticut and even Florida for the event. And Debbie and Dan were definitely surprised! Congratulations!

Barkbox's Barkfest 2014

This Saturday I had the pleasure to hang out a few hundred furry friends while photographing the Barkbox Barkfest in Madison Square Park for SeeMe. The event featured celebrity dogs of Instagram, dog movies and lots and lots of treats. A huge thanks to SeeMe for the opportunity to capture this amazing night in the city. Here are a few of my favorite shots from the evening.  

This dog's name is Marnie. She has 55,000 followers in Instagram. Because, the Internet.
