Introducing F.A.C.E.S.

Happy 1st day of Summer! So why not post a blog of a few beautiful faces to go with a beautiful summer day. :-) I had the pleasure of hearing from Mikael, one of my former Brides, who has now started her own makeup artistry company called F.A.C.E.S. and I must say, she definitely know what she's doing behind the makeup brush. We completed session one of her portfolio and it was great! I had a lot of fun with the ladies and Mikael was a sweetheart as usual. Her staff was great and kept me laughing the entire evening. Looking forward to the next one, but until then, here's a little preview of what we captured on that night...enjoy!

Okay, now the young lady above started her portion of the session by saying she didn't know how to pose or what to do. I beg to differ, she completely ROCKED it!

Grrrr!!! That's what I'm hearing in my head every time I look at this set of photos. Our beautiful model Tanya was bringing it left and right.

It was a pleasure to team up with Mikael on this project. Stay tuned for more from F.A.C.E.S.

Grace & Andy | Engagement (sneak peek)

Okay, so before you get a chance to say it, let me say it..."Why hasn't Photoray been updating the blog?" Hopefully that's what you're saying which would make me feel like you really missed me. (*smiley face*) I do have a good reason...I GOT MARRIED!! Hopefully you will forgive me because I'm back to work and ready to share.

Alright, enough about me already, now let's get to the beautiful couple that this blog post is really about...Grace & Andy! Doesn't that sound like the perfect name of a tv show you would like to watch? Well these two are just as cute together as there names are. Below are just a couple of teasers from their engagement session in Bryant Park, NYC. Another post is soon to come and you will get to know a little bit more about the beautiful Grace & Andy.

Enjoy! :-)

Stay tuned....

James & Uchechi Wedding | Getting Ready

I was so happy to reconnect with yet another high school classmate by the name of Uchechi earlier this year. She is an energetic fashionista who found her true love one evening at the Trenton Marriott at Lafayette Yard. Uchechi and her husband James fell in love and hit the ground running by realizing that they are not only meant to be partners in life but also in business and Event Radiance was born. These two are such an inspiration to others as they show love to each other and to their community by hosting monthly networking events together.

Fast forward to probably their biggest event to date....their wedding day! It was a wonderful September day fit for a King and Queen and of course that means they could only be married at a castle. Fonthill Castle was the perfect location for this most beautiful wedding day. Here is just a portion of the day as they prepared to start their future together.

Once again, I had my main man, Jesse Chiang, on deck to assist me with shooting for the day and he got these shots of the guys getting ready.

This is so cute, the Bride wanted to make sure that her girls got her in her dress nice and tight. Can't you see the determination in her face?

Good work girls!

Stay tuned...

Jared & Farrah Wedding | Preview

Well, I never get tired of saying this and I'm grateful that I can always say this...I LOVE MY CLIENTS!!! Jared and Farrah are just the greatest two people that could have ever decided to become one. I actually went to high school with Farrah and we reconnected on Facebook earlier this year and I'm so glad we did because it resulted in me sharing one of the most important days of her life.

It's been 12 years (OMG), since high school and so it was good to see her again and when I met her now husband, the one and only Jared, I just knew that I was going to have a blast at their wedding. After seeing them two together and getting to know them as a couple a little better I felt like I had been there from the beginning. It's always a dream to feel such an embrace from a couple like I did whenever I talked with Jared and Farrah. They are so sweet to each other and even though Jared almost fainted when he popped the question, he couldn't have made a better decision for his life then to marry his best friend. I could go on and on about these two, but for now I will just show you a few of my favorite images from the first part of their day.

Farrah made sure that her house was ready for the big day as well. There were so many great Fall decorations, everything was just so pretty.

You'll see more from this Bridesmaid, she was quite hilarious. All the girls were.

This is Muffin. I've always been a little scared of cats because I feel like they are one second away from scratching my eyes out but Muffin calmed my fears, she was very sweet. And she happened to be everywhere I was in the house so I guess she was my bodyguard for the day. :-)

Here's a bonus one from our portrait session.

Stay tuned...
