SHANNON’S SWEET 16 | CORTLANDT, NY PHOTOGRAPHER

Earlier this month, I was reached for the prospect of photographing my very first Sweet 16 party.  Err.. Shannon’s Sweet 16, rather.  Observations?  The energy was just electric.  These guys know how to rock it.  MTV should’ve, probably, maybe, had a film crew here.  In all honesty, I didn’t know what to expect, having never attended one myself, but it was insanely fun capturing these special moments for Shannon and her friends & family for her 16th birthday.  Jimmy Dee was in the house as the DJ, and the Colonial Terrace Mansion was just a fantastic choice for this event.  From the ridiculously good dancing to the emotionally gut-wrenching speeches, this was, for sure, a night to remember…  Enjoy the photos!!

LILY AND JOHN’S WEDDING | NYC, NY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

Talk about ending 2011 in a big way.  My final wedding of last year was one where I had the opportunity to associate shoot for one of the coolest photographers I know- Joshua Wong.  To top it off, it was for friends of friends, Lily and John (remember their rehearsal?) from OCM Church in Chinatown.  Oh, and their video team was Lomotan Productions, who also shot the vid for my couple, Viktoriya and Fernando.  Last, but definitely not least, my wife was their wedding coordinator.  Can you say, “dream team“?  =)  The entire day was just a blast from start to finish.  We began at the immensely beautiful (and just plain immense) Park Avenue Christian Church and ended at the always-popular Golden Unicorn Restaurant in Lower Manhattan.  It was just such an incredible day, celebrating two incredible people.  Wow, that was a lot of hyperlinks, haha.  Enjoy the images!!
