Tarrytown House Wedding Celebration

November 30, 2016

Laura and Daniel – Long-term forecast: SUN

Most couples face obstacles, but weather usually isn’t one of them. Darkening skies threatened Dan’s beach proposal, and stormy ones threatened their wedding, but inside elegant Tarrytown House last October, all was sunshine. Laura beamed in strapless lace, bridesmaids shone in scarlet, and nieces and nephews formed a vivid parade. Watching the couple’s first dance to John Legend’s “All of Me,” we forecast only blue skies ahead.

October Nuptials – Laura and Dan

September 28, 2016

In a just a few short weeks this beautiful couple will tie the knot at a ceremony at the Tarrytown House.  We were so pleased to receive this note of praise from the bride’s mom, Joanne.

“Hi Margaret, I wanted to share with you how pleased we are that Laura chose you to do the photography for her wedding.  Her engagement photos are amazing. You took such time and care to get the right poses at a venue she loves.  I’ve watched you in action at so many events and you always take such care to make sure everyone in the photo looks just right.  You take the time to get to know the people you are photographing and always seem to capture the spirit and sparkle of the moment. You are responsive to every inquiry and the photos are delivered in a timely manner. We look forward to the wedding photos in October!”

We look forward to photographing their wedding day too!

A Grand Finale

August 6, 2016


Judit and Jeff:

We love a happy ending, and that’s what we got shooting Judit and Jeff’s Pocantico wedding. The first act was their save-the-date shoot, and now, the finale at the Chagall-bedecked Union Church. We couldn’t write a better script: their storyline includes an alcohol-fueled bar mishap, an apology, and months of long-distance dating. The climactic episode at Tarrytown’s DoubleTree Hotel starred the bride, stunning in a lacy mermaid gown, swaying with her groom to Rod Stewart’s “Have I Told You That I Love You.” Kleenex, please!

Miami Heat

July 1, 2016

Judit and Jeff:

The story reads like a rom-com script. A hot Miami bar, an exotic blonde reporter, vacationing buddies, an unwanted advance, an apology, long-distance separation, triumphant love. Judit, Argentina-born, was that reporter; Jeff, a visiting New Yorker apologizing to her for his alcohol-fueled friend who had touched her leg. It seems the apology was accepted, a year and a half later that included 7 months of long-distance dating, we shot their pre-wedding photos. The Hollywood ending happens this summer at Pocantico’s Chagall-windowed Union Church and Tarrytown’s DoubleTree Hotel.

Save the Date Photo Session, Tarrytown, NY

February 12, 2016

Laura & Dan – Infinite sand, one stone

We’d all agree that proposals should be romantic, surprising, even teary. But fearful?   Not an emotion we’d strive for. But Laura felt them all when Dan held out a box on a San Diego beach four years after meeting.  The idea of marriage wasn’t frightening, the idea of dropping the ring in the sand was. Laura hit the Pause button until they were safely on solid ground. Fast forward to our save-the-date shoot at Rockefeller State Park, where they strolled the wooded trails, no sand in sight, the ring shining snugly on her finger.

Stephanie and Keith – Wedding Day Champions

Stephanie and Keith have been a team for many years, but they shared their wedding with another one: the New York Rangers! Their team spirit began on a personal note at the White Plains church ceremony, with “I do” and “I do too” legible on their shoe soles while they knelt. But the team line-up surged at Tarrytown’s Doubletree Hotel reception, their favorite hockey players’ numbers noted on place cards and table numbers, and table locations mapped on a scoreboard. The entire day was a win, though we can report that the only thing on the ice was champagne.

Beautiful Wedding Photography at Christ Church in Tarrytown, NY

Jackie & Derek – Dancing into the future

This newlywed couple knows how to party! Forget somber foxtrots and waltzes, Jackie and Derek got down with twerking, electronica and moves from the animated classic Dragon Ball Z. Derek’s Portuguese family smoothed it out with some traditional folk dancing, preparation for the couple’s Portuguese honeymoon. If all that dancing wasn’t colorful enough, Derek’s socks, the bridesmaids dresses, cupcakes and wedding cake glowed in vivid teal. And that crimson umbrella backdrop to Jackie’s satin gown outside Tarrytown’s stone Christ Church was a photographic stunner. The grey, cloudy weather didn’t stand a chance!

Tarrytown, NY Pre-Wedding Photoshoot for Ivona & Tony

July 28, 2015

Clear skies ahead – Ivona & Tony – Pre-Wedding Photography

A rainy forecast means luck for droughts, deserts, and one specific couple. Three of Ivona and Tony’s milestones were drenched: their first Manhattan roof-top garden meeting, their one-year anniversary at that same romantic spot, and this summer’s pre-wedding photo shoot in Tarrytown. Ivona’s eyes may have gotten wet when Tony proposed at that anniversary dinner, but not Tony’s knee – it was pouring! The kneeling  tradition was postponed ’til another day, though next to a flat tire instead of a rooftop garden! Whatever works, we say. And by the way, the only waterworks on their July 4th Beacon wedding will be tears of joy.
