In the elegant rotunda of Mark Twain's former Hudson Valley Estate, Tappan Hill Mansion, I wanted to capture the delirious love shared by Emily and Ray moments before their ceremony.

Throughout their wedding day, I wanted to focus on capturing both the romance and beauty of my couple, Anne and Tim, with the elegance of their stunning venue, The Tarrytown House Estate, nestled in the rolling hills of New York's Hudson Valley.
When I saw the sun setting through the arch of the mansion, we stole away to grab the magic moment. All they needed to do was arch and enjoy a long kiss! Later, the image felt even more compelling in black and white.

We were blessed with soft light on a cloudy summer day for Ariel and Spencer's beach engagement shoot in the Hamptons -- on the eastern end of New York's Long Island.

I captured this dramatic shot from a remotely triggered Nikon perched on a tall stand. Shortly after this magic moment, the high camera and stand crashed into the wet sand. Fortunately, most of the impact was absorbed by the lens hood, and the fallen lens and Nikon live for another day.

Surely, even fanciful Mark Twain (framed on back wall) never could have imagined his former Hudson Valley mansion, Tappan Hill, bustling with so much love!
And, perhaps, our romantic couple never imagined the lyrical poetry of their embrace while on the balcony of Tappan Hill's elegant rotunda!
