I promised Marcella & Stephen I would post a few favorites before their early morning flight to Hawaii tomorrow.
What a great day!

In 2005 I was a staff photographer at The Morning Call newspaper and a very young Leah Craver walked into the office looking for work.
Leah was a wedding photographer, fresh out of school, and her entire portfolio was wedding photography.
Really, really good wedding photography.
Photojournalism-style wedding photography was just coming into vogue and it had gotten my attention. I asked Leah to let me tag along on one of her weddings.
So Leah was the first of many to help me find my way & it was nothing short of thrilling to photograph Leah's wedding to Doug a few weeks ago in North Carolina.
This is not hyperbole: I have never seen as much joy and love as I did at Leah & Doug's wedding. Not even close. Love between Leah and Doug, Leah and her dad, her mom, her sister, Doug and his brothers and parents.
Leah & Doug: You amazed and moved me. Thank you. It was a complete thrill to see this thing come full circle.

It just seems impossible to go wrong in Brooklyn.
Twice I've worked weddings there & both trips were killer.
Marissa and Sean were no exception. They were a joy to photograph. We worked beneath the Manhattan Bridge in DUMBO before their wedding and reception at Studio 6 near the Brooklyn Navy Yard. All visually delicious spots.
Props to Joe for throwing some of that Joe Craig magic on this.
Please, please: Someone ask me back to Brooklyn!
