The Riviera At Massapequa: Nichole + Michael

I love photographing weddings, but I also enjoy second shooting. Having a second photographer on your wedding day provides an additional set of eyes, view, and an additional creative contribution to your wedding images. So many wonderful things are going on at any wedding and the primary photographer simply can’t be in all places at one time. Below are some of my images I captured as a second shooter for Henry Rivera Photography.

Happy One-Year Wedding Anniversary, Nichole & Michael. 

The Grandview, Multicultural Wedding: Jerryanne + Nathan

So excited to be featured on & bellanaija.comA couple of months ago, I had the honor to shoot with friend and fellow photographer,  Petronella. She's an amazing photographer and a great friend. I was thrilled when we were able to shoot together at The Grandview in Poughkeepsie, NY. I had an absolute blast! Her bride & groom, Jerryanne & Nathan were amazing to work with and planned an absolutely gorgeous wedding full of Afro-Caribbean culture and beautiful colors.

Here are some of the images I captured of the day.

Grace Restaurant, Portland Wedding: Amy + Josh

Two months ago I had the immense privilege of photographing a beautiful wedding in Portland, Maine with my good friend and amazing photographer Christopher Schmelke.

We had so much fun photographing Amy and Josh’s wedding. They were both so calm and excited! They were just ready to rock ‘n roll and have some fun. Here are some of my favorites from this incredibly beautiful, relaxed, & fun wedding at  Grace Restaurant!  

Amy & Josh can’t thank you enough for letting me be a part of this:


Scarsdale, NY Wedding Photos: Carol + Danny

Congrats to my brother in law and his wife Carol! Carol & Danny recently got married on June 7, 2013 at city hall, due to the pouring rain we had to reschedule their shoot. So we ventured off on a sunny day to Greenburgh Nature Center In Scarsdale, NY and capture some amazing images. We had a great afternoon and I'm looking forward to meeting baby Esmeralda soon.  May God continue to bless you both! Here are some of my favorites.
