Photo Booth Fun

What a treat it is when we actually get to put our feet up (or down on the dance floor) and be one of the attendees at a fabulous soiree. We did just that at our friend Christian Oth‘s annual holiday party this past December. As expected from “ONE OF THE TOP TEN BEST WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHERS IN THE WORLD” – AMERICAN PHOTO – the photo booth was anything but ordinary. Here are a couple of photos from the event of our very own Marcey Brownstein with good friends and colleagues Ellen Kostman of Side Kick Events and Manu Kingston of Revolve Furniture. We’re so lucky to be friends with such creative people and had a blast spending some quality time and cocktails with them.




Circa 1799 Barn

Hammertown is a fantastic home design store in the Hudson Valley. Every nook and cranny is filled with covetable items – you’ll want to buy everything in this place! We are so excited that Joan, the owner, was a guest at this recent wedding we catered at the gorgeous Circa 1799 Barn and she wrote a beautiful blog piece about it on the Hammertown Blog.

Ladies Who Lunch

I had the pleasure of hosting some great women at my home and farmden in upstate New York recently. The wonderful photographer (and friend of mine) Amber Gress recently covered it on her blog and it was so lovely and I just think it is so gorgeous that I smile every time I look at it.

As I mentioned in one of my last posts, I’m working on my online persona, and how I would like to better blend it with my actual living identity, which is part of why I am posting about more aspects than just weddings, or photography for that matter.   Part of why I chose photography as my path, is because it gives me access.  It gives me access to many worlds, many lives, and  many stories.  I love life, I love people, I love telling stories.  I want to share stories about the places I’ve been, the people I meet, and the magic that ensues.  I am very blessed to know people from all walks, and to  be invited into an array of different worlds.  Some of the things I love are gatherings, cooking, and good conversation with amazing women who are doing amazing things.  This lunch really encompassed so much of that, and I feel so blessed to have been a part of such a lovely day with some truly lovely and talented people.  The roster ranged from jewelry designer, chef, acupuncturist, event planner, to amazing self made entrepreneur.  I want to thank our lovely hostess Marcey of Marcey Brownstein Catering for bringing us all together, and opening her lovely home to us in upstate NY!  Please check out the links below to see the roster of lovely ladies who attended, and are doing amazing things for a little inspiration!
