As photographers and as artists we are fortunate enough to be given a brand new canvas every single weekend. The different venues we travel to and the many faces we are given the opportunity to photograph produces an endless stream of creative new work. Nothing excites us more than shooting at a new venue especially when it’s as awesome as the One Hotel in Brooklyn. The rustic architecture and waterfront views made it the perfect backdrop to shoot this perfect couple. Check out some of our favorite images from Rachel & Efry’s gorgeous wedding below!
We had an amazing start to the New Year but we still have a lot of beautiful images to share from 2017!
Next up on our blog is Brittney & Brett!
“Our wedding day was more marvelous and magical than we could have ever expected. Having met in New York City on a cold November night, we wanted a New York City wedding. As we stood under the Chuppah while the sun set over the Hudson, we could feel the love of family and friends fill up the room. The entire day and night was a whirlwind of happiness, love and memories to come. From getting ready and our first look to reciting our vows and dancing the night away, Felix and his team were there to capture every moment of it. We couldn’t have asked for a more special and memorable day!” – B&B
Engagement sessions are about making our couples feel comfortable in front of the camera. It’s also a great way for us to learn about our couples in preparation for the big day. Erica & Jessica are getting married next year on the upper west side of Manhattan so we thought it’d be fun to photograph their engagement session on the opposite side of the city, the West Village. We spent a sunny afternoon last week exploring the charm of the west village streets with our beautiful couple. E & J were naturals. Their love and emotion towards each other was so easy to capture and needed almost no guidance. We cannot wait to capture their union when they exchange rings next year! In the meantime, enjoy some of our favorite moments from their shoot. Congrats ladies!!

“From start to finish, the day of our wedding exceeded all our expectations. We couldn’t be happier with how all the details turned out and the amazing vendors that helped to make everything possible. My favorite memory from the day was getting to see Max for the first time. I will never forget the feeling I had walking up to him. I was just as nervous then as I was on our first date! We had our first look outside on 5th Avenue and even though there were tons of strangers watching, it felt like we were the only two on the sidewalk. Felix made Max and I feel so comfortable and natural. We were able to focus on each other and truly enjoy the most amazing day surrounded by everyone we love in our favorite city in the world.” – Marisa & Max

The Elie Wiesel Foundation for Humanity was established by Elie Wiesel and his wife, Marion, shortly after he was awarded the 1986 Nobel Prize for Peace. The Foundation’s mission, rooted in the memory of the Holocaust, is to advance the cause of human rights by creating forums for the discussion and resolution of urgent ethical issues. On Wednesday night, I had the honor of photographing this most meaningful awards ceremony. The award was given to the one and only Oprah Winfrey with performances by Kelly Clarkson. And if that wasn’t enough, Julia Roberts, Ronald Lauder, Elisha Wiesel, Ralph Lauren & Katie Couric all joined in the celebration.
As a grandchild of a survivor, events like this bring to light the good that can be done in the world. Elie Wiesel not only was a champion for Holocaust remembrance and education but for all injustice and humanitarian causes. I had the honor of getting to know Professor Wiesel and his family through the years. I’ve photographed him numerous times and have spent hours talking with him in private. After his passing, a light seemed to be extinguished. The current state of the country and at the world seems a bit darker these days. This evening reignited my belief that there is hope and there is more love and light in this world than it may seem.
Elie Wiesel was fiercely adamant against neutrality, and the stance led me, a person who is generally conflict-averse, to understand that we cannot afford to not speak up, to not testify when we notice actions occurring that perpetuate darkness and not light. Thank you, Dr. Wiesel, for your call to testify and bear witness as you have inspired countless others to follow suit.
