Angela and Corey, May

Westbury Manor
Long Island, NY

I actually shot Angela and Corey's engagement earlier, so I'll post them together with the wedding pics. Angela really wanted a snow storm engagement session, but this year we didn't had much great snow storm that we can walk into, so dry humid May weather had to do.


City hall at the back

In addition to an engagement session Angela also had me for a wedding attire shoot.

I suggested taking the subway. A train is approaching from the left

Hand-crafted "Double Happiness" motif. Angela and Corey meticulously hand made most of the details and decors {imaging cutting those tiny figures on the bottom, for all the tables!!}

Tiloma and Jayant, May


The Foundry

Long Island City, Queens

Tiloma and Jayant tied the knots, with an outdoor ceremony in the Foundry, located in Long Island City, Queens. Before the ceremony should started, everything had to be moved back inside because it started raining hard.

We waited inside for a few minutes, then the rain stopped, and everything was moved back outside. The ceremony started under the dark and thick clouds.

Right after the ceremony, a beam of light drilled through the cloud and shined on the wall behind the poruwa {ceremonial altar}; I had a minor religious experience right at that moment.






Rain








Yes, milk bottle

Dengue Fever in NY

A client of mine {thanks Erica!!} informed me that Dengue Fever is playing in NY {Brooklyn} July 1st.

I went and saw them in Sound Fix and snapped some shots.


Loads up on caffeine before Zac starts






After the performance


The performance was an hour and it was awesome. My friend commented that Chhom sounded great live. They did very little to their CDs to hide/change their voice. All in all it was great.
