Rena & Robbie – American Visionary Art Museum

Aug 21, 2012

This past Sunday I had an absolutely incredible time photographing Rena and Robbie’s wedding at AVAM. Rena and Robbie live in NYC. I initially met with Rena on Skype. It was awesome – I was logged into my email as I was sitting at my computer editing like I always do and she emailed me, I emailed back immediately and she emailed me back immediately asking when I would be available to set up a meeting on Skype. I sent her an email back saying that I could meet one such and such days and then after a delay I sent an email saying or I could meet right now. Right now was when we met (and how I knew she was my kind of bride!!) and when she came to MD for the next time we met in person and I couldn’t have hearted her more! I didn’t get to meet Robbie until yesterday and he was equally as awesome. And together they are going to laugh hysterically for the rest of their lives. Their smiles are magnetic and you can’t help but be super happy when you are around them. Seriously an awesome wedding.

I got to work with some amazing wedding vendors this past weekend!! I wanted to give my special thanks to Nancy of Kindle and Boom Salon and Nikki from Beauty ‘n the Bride!! These two were seriously awesome. Nikki should have her own TV show for sure, she reminded me of Bob Ross with her calming voice while she worked. Also – this was a very traditional Jewish wedding, for those of you who are interested in reading more about some of the customs that are happening in some of these shots, please refer to this post.

Rena is ridiculously gorgeous.

All of their centerpieces were in these awesome antique cans – I loved the idea!!

Sparkly toms!!

I am in love with these next three.
