we are digging this non stop love in lala land.

everything around samantha + ben’s wedding was all about the fun.

from the neon lights to the bold prints, pops of color to the stunning cocktails and custom cappuccinos, they somehow delivered all of our favorite things.

a highlight for us was when they surprised their guests with a video from their secret elopement in vegas

…the crowd went wild!

check out the story below for all the details.

where to begin??

leading off : aimee and paul are old friends of mine. it's every photographer's privilege to shoot the wedding of a close friend and this one was no exception. the bonus was that they have impeccable taste and made their vision a reality. a very difficult thing to do. being a designer, aimee knew exactly what she wanted (in fact, she designed their invite suite). 

they started by booking the stunning palm house at the brooklyn botanic garden as the backdrop. outside of that, the grounds of the gardens are a playground for photos. despite rain and wind they hoofed it and we got some dope shots. 

all that with a vintage cab to top it off. 

thanks for being so in love, aimee + paul. and thanks for letting us capture.
