In the words of Nelson Mandela and recently President Obama ... 'No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.' I'm aware of the radio silence here on my feed after the events of the past weekend. Mostly because I am feeling an overwhelming since of despair and depression by what happened on Saturday, as well as what has been happening since the election. Posting pretty wedding pictures seemed a little empty and meaningless. Current events are giving me a better understanding of history and how things that you didn't think were possible and that would never happen again, can happen in an instant and have been there under the surface the whole time. I'm feeling very naive and white. I'm also really thinking about what I can do to be an ally, and uphold the values that I believe in like love and equality. One important thing that I can do in my world is to update my website to feature people of all races, religions, gender identities, and sexual orientation. The wedding industry and blogging world is saturated with white, straight, wealthy people. Thanks for taking the time to read this. Sending out love to the world.

Back when summer was hot we had to step inside for a bit to cool off. This couple eloped to New York from Hungary. πŸ‡­πŸ‡Ί πŸ“· for @elopingisfun

Ok, so this is the last portrait of Julie. Probably oversharing, but she looks radiant in this pic! Plus who doesn't need a good witch in their life?! Also because the background is clean and neutral the color pops. 4/4 #wicked #portrait #advancedstyle #brooklynportraitphotographer #newyorkportraitphotographer #nyc #broadway #wishofalifetime

After the show Julie got to go on a tour of the theater. I wasn't able to attend, but we were still able to take some pictures with the characters and the amazing costumes with the posters around the theater. Luckily for us there weren't a lot of people around and the colors of the parking garage added some nice color to the shot. 3/4 #brooklynportraitphotographer #wicked #wishofalifetime #advancedstyle #newyorkportraitphotographer

For this shot I asked Julie to just walk along the street. This is something I often do with clients because you hold yourself more naturally when you're moving. But the inspiration for this shot was the ingenue in the city. Think 70s Mary Tyler Moore/Show, 80s Melanie Griffith/Working Girl, 90s Carrie Bradshaw/Sex in the City, or 00s Hannah Horvath/Girls. 2/4

Recently I got to do a very special shoot for @wishofalifetime Wish is an organization with the mission to shift the way society views and values our oldest generations by fulfilling seniors dreams and sharing their stories to inspire those of all ages. This portrait is of Julie. Her wish was to travel to NYC and to go to a Broadway show. We took some portraits around the Gershwin theater, where she saw Wicked, and took a stroll through Times Square. I love the way this image shows the hustle and bustle of #timessquare advertisements to Broadway shows, and the joy on her face. πŸš•
