Haig & Nadette- The Lighthouse Chelsea Piers NYC

Haig and Nadette joined their family and friends for an amazing wedding celebration on August 25, 2012. With much anticipation the couple got ready in the beautiful New York Helmsley Hotel which was the perfect backdrop for this fun New York couple. Nadette was breathtaking in a classic Monique Lhuillier gown and Haig was looking sharp in a Calvin Klein tuxedo. Richard Berberian from Elyse Jewelers designed unique cufflinks Haig wore that matched the cufflinks Richard designed for Haig's Grandfather.. They had a stunning  Armenian ceremony at St Vartan's Armenian Cathedral. They truly looked like a King and Queen when they were crowned with traditional blessing of their kingdom. We had alot of fun with the bridal party as we made our way over to Union Square and played some chess and hailed some taxis.  Everyone partied the night away at the fabulous Chelsea Piers Lighthouse!!! DJ Jon Blak from Scratch Weddings mixed up the beats while Mal Barsamian, Richard Berberian and The Aravod Ensemble kept everyone's feet stomping and handkerchiefs flying with What a couple and what a day ! Congratulations Mr. and Mr. Altoonian

Love in New YorkCity

 A little Vintage Romance in NYC with Sarah and DJ..

Finding their inner city chic !! Love the shadow of DJ on the left side picture!

Some fun, candid moments of them laughing and sharing their love !

Sarah, a true woman with inner and outer beauty and  many levels of depth  !

Daniel Joesph, a handsome tough guy on the outside but a mushy lovable teddy bear on the inside.

Meet Sarah and DJ...a fabulous couple who's charm and chemistry melts your heart. They have been together for 5 years and are getting married this June at The Venetian in Garfield, New Jersey.. They both have a great passion for sports and are quite athletic themselves.. As fate would have it they met because DJ was the football coach for Sarah's little nephew. Sarah has been my friend for many years now and I always am blown away by the amazing woman she is. She is so dedicated to everything she puts her mind to. Recently she trained and completed the NYC Triathlon consisting of 1.5K Swim, 40K Bike, 10K Run. She did it to raise money for the lymphoma and leukemia society. We had a great day in New York City at the park in High Line...and spent time walking around, laughing and creating amazing images. I love the combination of dramatic angles and lighting and use of shadows to tell a story...I'm very inspired by the film noir style documentation. So overall when I capture engagement photos or wedding images I like to mix a little fun candid moments, a little fashion and flair, and always natural timeless romance!

Sasha and Vicky got engaged at the beautiful Cafe La Cave, in Des Plaines, IL.The celebration took place two days before Valentine's day and so it had a red and charcoal grey theme and love was defiantly in the air ! Tommy Manikas from Manikas Designs did an amazing job with the whole venue, and with his attention to detail the room was warm and inviting and created a signature event!! The team at Cafe la Cafe was so professional, special thanks to Randy and Kerry for all your help. The couple had a Greek and Serbian Orthodox blessing with their three priests during the ceremony. Then the couple and their guests danced the night away with the beats of DJ Pete from Sounds of Greece and the awesome talents of Chedo and his Serbian band..more pictures coming soon...
