Styled Wedding Shoot

This very long overdue post is about a Styled Wedding Shoot I photographed / organized this past spring. It’s my longest post so bear with me ūüėČ ¬†it features so many amazing people and artists! Let’s go! This past May I organized my very first, (but definitely not last) Styled Wedding Shoot. When I first started to put all the pieces together and make a list of all the people I needed to help make this vision a reality, I felt very overwhelmed. However, each time I worked on it and sent the awkward “Hi, my name is” email, things began to fall into place. It’s amazing what can happen when people choose to help one another and work together as a community of artists, visionaries, and neighbors. I can genuinely say that each vendor and collaborator I worked with on this shoot was amazing. From the hair, to the dress, everything was unbelievably smooth. Thank you so much to everyone who gave time, money, energy, thought and even their homes to make this shoot …


Sasha, Sashie, Sasha girlie, Sasha Fierce, and SashieSashieSashie are just a few of the nicknames I’ve come up with for my homegirl, Sasha. At the beginning of this summer, my husband and I had (very casually) talked about getting a puppy. As usual, it was never much more then a conversation. Until about three weeks ago… My husband was driving very early one morning and saw this beautiful dog (spoiler alert, it was Sasha) in the middle¬†of the road eating something off the ground. She had no collar, no tags, and some minor injures on her head. He waited with her to see if anyone would show up and no one did. So, he put her in the car and drove home while calling Animal Control. It took a few hours for animal control to arrive and in the mean time, my husband fell in LOVE with Sasha. Although, at this point she was just “the dog” (no name). After animal control arrived, Dave was so sad to see her go. He inquired about the …

Lackawanna Coffee

If you’re like me, you’re a complete sucker for a good cup of coffee. Even more of a sucker for a cute coffee shop. I’m not even kidding when I say that my husband comments more on how much money I spend at coffee shops then when I buy clothing (and that’s saying something). About a year ago I noticed a storefront under construction with the sign “Lackawanna Coffee” on the front (you can imagine my excitement). The construction took close to a year to finish and I had forgotten all about it. When I heard it opened last week, I sent a quick text over to my good friend Nisha¬†¬†“hey cute coffee shop in town, want to check it out?!” I sent her an iPhone shot of the back area and she responded “Where the heck have I been under a rock?” Nope! It’s BRAND new. Nisha and I had the opportunity to sit down with the Owners, Ian and Julius and ask them a few questions about Lackawanna Coffee and how it got …


When your friends have babies it’s a wonderful thing for a few reasons. The first is that you can smother them endlessly and it’s not weird. The second is that it somewhat eliminates the baby bug, you get your fix for a few hours then you’re good. The third is that ¬†you have an excuse to take 700 + photos of them and again, it’s not weird! Danny and Lizette, Thank you for asking me to take photos of your precious babe. I am so honored you asked me ūüôā Enjoy¬† xoxo,¬†

Which do you love more Christmas or wedding season? Yes, the answer would be, wedding season? Bingo. A few weekends ago I had the opportunity to attend a wedding and take photos under a really amazing wedding photographer (who someday soon you will all become more familiar with). It was such a lovely day despite the crazy amount of wind and (thankfully) the rain held off so we could grab some shots under those incredible cherry blossoms! I can’t wait to share more wedding photos on my blog in the near future! But for now, enjoy this little teaser… lot’s of exciting posts coming up! xoxo,

Oh Brother…

Ok, can I just take a second to brag?! How cute is he?? My (not so) little brother Josh is graduating high school this year and I can’t believe how fast all those years went by. Josh wasn’t always this handsome, responsible, young gentleman. He went through a real mischievous streak when he was a toddler. He would take clothes and throw them out the window, put food from the pantry in a washing machine that was full of soapy clothes… ETC. ¬†I think my mom is really thankful he grew out of that phase of life ūüėČ Two years ago my Parents (and four out of my five siblings)¬†moved down to Orlando Florida. Although it’s really nice to have a forever vacation spot in sunny florida, I miss my family a lot! It’s not the same without them around and I’ve missed out on a lot of moments, but it just makes going to visit all the sweeter. Josh is planning on attending South Eastern University where both of my sisters also went to …

Rob Jelinski Collaboration

Collaborations are always fun! You meet new people, work with old friends, and do something totally out of the box. This weekend, I was able to work with the very talented,¬†Rob Jelinski at his Lululemon¬†Art Exhibit! It was unlike any art show I’ve ever been to. Chill, relaxed, and surrounded by really good looking people with really good looking fitness gear. Here are a few shots from the event. P.s. I highly recommend Rob for any graphic needs you may have ūüėČ xoxo,¬† TC   Hot Shaves provided by, COMB Barbershop¬†

Danny & Daniely

If this isn’t the look of love, i’m not sure what is. Daniely and I were introduced a few years ago through my husband. At the time she was in high school. Now, she’s preparing to graduate college, and getting married! A lot had changed in just a few short years. When Daniely introduced us to her fianc√©, he was just as amazing as she said he was. Charming, funny, sweet and so in love with Daniely. Love you guys. Can’t wait to see where life takes you! Ps. Doesn’t Danny look exactly like that guys from the Bridesmaids movie?! location: Jersey City, NJ (exchange place).

“She’s so cool”

Friends, they are so valuable. Sometimes you talk every single day. Sometimes you go weeks (maybe even months) without any real conversation. Yet somehow, you’re able to pick up right where you left off. Every. Single. Time. When I was little my mom would wait until the day of Rachel’s visit to tell me she was coming over (we lived about an hour from each other). She waited because she knew I would beg and ask 5,000 times before the hang out: “When is Rachel coming?” “How much longer until Rachel’s visit?” “Is she coming today or tomorrow?” The real reason for me asking so many times… I totally needed to change my outfit because she was just as cool then as she is now. Cheers to the coolest girl I know. Literally.

Anniversary Date

Yesterday, my husband and I celebrated two years of being married! Two Years?!¬† Since our ¬†anniversary fell on a Tuesday, we celebrated on Monday (MLK day). We both had the day off so we took advantage and went to the Metropolitan Museum of Art (The MET). It was amazing! I had never been so it was all new and exciting for me. I love that we could just linger and wander all day without any kind of schedule. Thank you, Dave. You are the best guy to go on dates with. Thanks for making me laugh, for telling me when I’m wrong, for leading me spiritually and for always making me breakfast : ) You’re a champ! Enjoy,
