Brooklyn Wedding : Jess & Chris

You’ve seen the teasers and their coverage on Brooklyn Bride, now Jess & Chris’ wedding is finally making the blog.  Jess found me online over two years ago while researching wedding photographers for her friend Sara (yup, the Sara from Sara & Matt’s awesome Rhode Island hurricane wedding).  About six months later I got the call that it was Jess & Chris’ turn. Much happy dancing followed.  I love these two.

    Hey Jenny, That first photo booth picture is of my husband Mike and I love it! I think it’s one of my all time favorite photos of him. I ordered several copies and gave one to his mom as a Christmas present. Fantastic job, and it was great to meet you-you’re a fun lady.
