1. Just a few shots from Many + Ubaid’s gorgeous Green Building wedding in Brooklyn.  Loved this DIY bride, she did an amazing job with the styling/ design: the balloons with tassles, the intricate chalkboard signs, terrariums and whimsical flower arrangements. LOVE!

  6. FEATURED PHOTOGRAPHER: Laura Marie

    I recently decided to bring on board some awesome like-minded photographers to join my team, and I knew as soon as I saw Laura Marie’s work that she was extremely talented! Luckily for me she is also extremely kind and has a wonderful presence. I brought her on not only because I admire her wedding work, but she is a master at creating beautiful one of a kind Fine Art conceptual portraits that showcase her imagination and amazing digital manipulation skills.

    A few words Laura uses to describe her work is “nostalgic” and “otherworldly”. She describes her practice as “having the ability to bring stories in my head to reality…I was always day-dreaming as a kid, creating story books with crayons and construction paper. Photography became in a sense, a way for me to hold onto these imaginative aspects of childhood. I think that art for many people (writers, painters, etc) is really just another way to contain our imaginations in a world that can be hectic, stressful, and lack creativity for the adult mind.”

    I wanted to take this opportunity to showcase some of her beautiful pieces and also announce that with Laura, we are now offering Fine Art Portrait sessions. Clients will work with Laura to collaborate on a concept and bring their ideas to life with her photography, conceptual styling and fantastical Photoshop skills.
    Available for all types of portrait sessions: bride + groom portraits, engagement sessions, kids and family!

    Starts at $750 per session and includes 1 digitally mastered Fine Art image file, 1 Fine Art print and extra shots from the shoot. Please contact us here to inquire about booking a session: khakibedfordstudio@gmail.com

    Of course Laura Marie also loves shooting full weddings as well! You can check out her wedding work here: http://khakibedford.4ormat.com/laura

  7. I had the pleasure of photographing the beautiful Private Dining Room space offered by Naturally Delicious Catering Company prior to their Summer Garden Party last night! It is such a gorgeous space located in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn.  The space offers clients a unique experience to host a special and intimate Chef’s dinner for all occasions.  Gorgeous flowers provided by the ever so lovely floral company Red, Rose and Lavender.

  8. Last night I headed over to Naturally Delicious (awesome catering company in Brooklyn) to mingle and take photos at their lovely Garden Party! The food was amazing and I met some great people and fellow wedding vendors (including Thea of Hushed Commotion, event designer Brita Olsen and the lovely event planner and designer Julia Lake). 

    This space is so uniquely Brooklyn… a little gem of a garden, surrounded by the backside of neighboring apartments with exposed fire escapes and a not-so-distant above ground train in the backdrop… Yet somehow you feel very far from the city!  Thanks to Loren and friends for inviting me into their hidden garden for the evening.  Looking forward to returning soon!

  10. This past weekend my ridiculously sweet niece Tennessee Rose Katz turned 2!  Being the very proud Aunt that I am, I had to post some photos from the amazing party thrown by her very creative mommy (aka my sister)!  I love how she created a colorful wave effect by the way she displayed the crayons on the craft table …. and not to mention the hand stuffed confetti balloons!  Great job mommy and Happy Birthday Tenny!  I love you more than you know!

  11. Adam + Dana Wedding Part II:

    After getting ready at the Wythe Hotel, Dana + Adam walked to the eclectic Jungle Design garden for the ceremony.  I love how the photos go from neutral blues and whites of the hotel to an explosion of color and greenery!  The ceremony was short and sweet and then we all headed back to the Wythe Hotel an amazing dinner at Reynard, toasts and dancing!

    If you didn’t see my earlier post, check out Adam + Dana’s pre-ceremony shots here.

  12. Adam + Dana Wedding Part I:

    Adam + Dana got ready at one of my favorite venues, The Wythe Hotel in Williamsburg.  It was on the verge of torrential downpour when we headed outside to do the First Look and just as we stepped out it started pouring.  It was a blessing in disguise as we ended up using the hotel room instead… which resulted in some of my favorite photos of the day. One of my favorite moments was during the First Look… Dana waited for Adam in her room, while looking out the window towards the Manhattan skyline, Adam crept in and they held hands back to back long enough for me to get the shot above.  They were so excited and it was such a lovely moment.  You could tell how in love they are and they didn’t let the terrible weather ruin an ounce of their excitement for one another!

    Check out photos of their ceremony at Jungle Design and reception back at the Wythe Hotel HERE!
