congratulations faedra and sam

After spending a few weeks on the injured list (more on that some other time), it's so great to get back to work and finish editing and sharing some beautiful weddings I had to put on hold (Thank you, patient clients). First up: Faedra and Sam's gorgeous wedding at the very special Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, New York. Congratulations you two!

congratulations sophie and sam

This was a truly special wedding. Admittedly, I'm a little biased. Sophie and I became close while we were studying abroad in Seville during our sophomore year of college. We'd meet during the week to explore the city--read: eat tapas and drink wine--and on the weekends, take trips throughout the South of Spain and Portugal (life was really good in the fall of 2005). Back at school, I was lucky to have a dorm room close to hers and even luckier to have her close again after graduation, while we both lived on the Upper West Side. I lost her to Boston a few years later, but that's where the romance with Sam started (and if you don't know their wonderful love story, read it here right now). 
Eventually, Sophie and Sam decided I should shoot their wedding, and who better to step in as second shooter than a mutual friend from our time in Spain, our buddy and talented photographer Max Flatow. I was excited from the beginning, but didn't realize how much of an insider's role I'd get to play, sharing with my gorgeous and glowing friend all the intimate moments of her wedding weekend: the hilarious and touching speeches at the rehearsal dinner, her dad walking her down the aisle, their adorable niece and nephews, and the epic dance party that followed it all--much like the ones we'd end our nights with in Spain. Congratulations to two amazing people, and thanks for such a fun weekend!
