Happy Friday!! For the past few weeks, I’ve been sharing some personal images that I’ve captured illustrating the streetscapes of New York. I love wandering this city and documenting it on film. Check out past blog posts here, here and here.

I love experimenting with toy cameras when photographing personal projects. I am fascinated by the architectural characteristics that make each neighborhood distinguishable in New York City. The color images below were captured on the world’s smallest 35mm camera and the black & white images were captured on my Holga. Love both of these plastic, rudimentary cameras. These images were taken in the Bay Ridge neighborhood of Brooklyn.
I had the amazing opportunity to second shoot this wedding for Scott of Scott Andrew Studios, an extremely talented film photographer from the San Fran/Napa area of California. I absolutely love second shooting whenever I get a chance. It’s hard during the spring, summer and fall when I’m so busy with my own weddings, but in the winter, I always try to shoot a few with my photographer friends! I loved this elegant winter wedding at Studio 450, a super chic venue in Chelsea. This space was absolutely stunning! Here are a few of my favorite details from the day. Thank you Scott for inviting me to shoot with you. Be sure to check out Scott’s amazing work on his blog!
A couple frames from Long Island City, Queens… I captured these on the smallest 35mm camera in the world. I love this little camera, roughly the size of my iPhone, because it’s convenient to carry around. Not only that, but it captures images on half of a 35mm film negatvive- basically on a 36 exposure roll I get 72 half sized images. Love these tiny, mini frames. I have been sifting through some of my personal film images from 2011 and came across these two images that I had previously overlooked. I especially love the shot of the elevated train. More from NYC coming next week…
When I’m in NYC one of my favorite activities is wandering aimlessly along the city streets. The nooks and neighborhoods in New York are endless and I love every square inch. For those who are curious, I am currently in Minneapolis, but still traveling back and forth, booking weddings in both Minneapolis and the the New York area. I am really excited about all the amazing couples I will get to work with this year from the East Cost to the Midwest to Mexico and a few stops in between! I am still booking select dates in 2012 and would love to chat with you if you are planning your wedding for this year! :)
Back to New York. I spent 6 months of 2011 living and working in the city, and in the in between time I focused on documenting the diverse cultural neighborhoods, which I’m planning on presenting in a mini-series on the blog! Stay tuned.
‘Til next time, enjoy a shot from last winter in one of my favorite neighborhoods- the Upper West Side.
