Way back in March we flew to NYC photograph some of four of our clients for this year-many of whom were having destination weddings. What I love about this series, is that each neighborhood and location we photographed our clients in is just so "them".

First up Clare and Andy were photographed in DUMBO in Brooklyn:

Why is it that NYC is so so so good at being both ultra-modern and old-school cool all at the same time. Add in a dose of hawt couples and great photography... and bam. Winners. Good work!

Part 1 of Sarah + Rupert's fabulous Mackinac Island wedding. Part two of their day after photoshoot at the Grand Hotel is next!

They got married on one of those cold, rainy days last summer, but it was still fantastic. They held their wedding at the The Inn at Stonecliffe on Mackinac Island. An epic place for a wedding if you ask me. Their wedding was just featured on Style Me Pretty a few months back and you can view it here.



Dress: La Fluer by Ann Barge
Venue: Inn at Stonecliffe, Mackinac Island
