New York City two times in one week! Peter and Nancy were married at St Patrick’s Cathedral and what a gorgeous day it was. I love New York weddings! After the ceremony we joined 100 of the bride and groom’s family and friends for a great party.

I had a PUG ( pictage user group, or us photo geeks) meeting in New York and of course I had to get a couple of shots off. I always bring my camera everywhere I go. I love The Chrysler Building, it is by far my favorite building in the world. Yes, even better than The Eiffel Tower.  I met a real nice group of  New York Photographers and I learned a lot about shooting in the city.

I had the great pleasure to meet and photograph  a real great kid and his wonderful family. Jake is a football player with many friends. I was really touched by the slide show presentation. It was a real cool mix of stills with awesome football video footage. John Muro from AP Video did a fantastic job. I have worked with John many times over the past 20 years, I feel like we are a team. The ceremony was at temple Israel as well as the luncheon where instead of lighting candles, Jake placed puzzle pieces together to form a large photograph of him in a cool Wreckers Football Jersey. After the luncheon there was a kids party at Stage 18 where the kids partied while the snow fell, and fell, and kept falling until we received 10 inches of snow. It was a day I will never forget, and I am sure Jake won’t either.

I photographed Aimee and Pete’s Wedding 5 years ago and now they have an adorable little guy named Will. I always try to keep in touch with brides and grooms as much as I can. As the family gets bigger I love to get pictures of them. Compo Beach is one of my favorite spots to photograph but if the colors are nice I use a park down the street or sometimes as in this case, my backyard.
