Wedding: Yolanda and Kevin – Long Island Wedding Photographer


This past Friday I had the honor of photographing the wedding of one of the cutest young couples I’ve ever come across. Yolanda and Kevin are longtime high school sweethearts turned Husband & Wife. It was a long, hectic day and a trying day for all involved. There was a little bit of everything: Limousine problems, wedding rings that almost didn’t make it to the church, and the bright sun bearing down on us all. Somehow Yolanda and Kevin managed to keep their cool on what turned out to be one of the hottest days we’ve had this year.

If the way they handled their wedding day is any indication of how they’ll handle the ups and downs of marriage, there’s no doubt in my mind that this young couple will be able to handle anything life throws their way. Good luck guys! (not that you’ll need it)

Spending your special day with you made it special for me as well.

I would also like to give props to the vendors who made a great day even better. Denise, Jacqueline, and the folks over at Salon Luna were extremely gracious and very accomodating when I stopped by the salon for some of the “getting ready” images. If I had the slightest bit of hair, that’s where I’d be getting it done. Ciara at All Dolled Up is a fantastic make-up artist and she did an equally amazing job with Yolanda’s makeup. It was 90* out, but 5 hours later her makeup looked just as fresh as when she first put it on. You guys made a beautiful bride even more beautiful!

Alan first I would like to thank you for all your patience and hardwork. Second I would like to commend you on a wonderful job.The pictures are absolutely amazing. Words can not describe the beauty and essence of the pictures that you and your assistant took. Even the comment you wrote about the wonderful couple was delightful. It is true that a picture can say a thousand words and your pictures shows how in Love this couple truly is.I would recommend you to anyone (I am actually recommending you to a friend of mine that is getting married in November)

Hey Alan & Silke.
Thank you so much for making my day such a wonderful experience!! Through all the chaos and bad service you managed to keep Kevin, myself, and my entire family upbeat and smiling. I would not have been able to keep my cool if it were not for you and Silke. You were amazing both professionally and as friends; Friends is what we’ll be always! You have exceeded my expectations with your work. Thanks again for a job EXCELLENTLY DONE!!

The images used here are a couples portrait  from Gerri & Max’s wedding as well as a walking down the aisle shot from Yolanda and Kevin’s wedding. […]

Kings Point 2009 Change of Command – Long Island Photographer

The rain held up just enough to allow the Kings Point Class of 2009 Midshipmen Officers to turn leadership of the Regiment over to the Class of 2010. The ceremony took place in the Oval outside of Wiley Hall. The gloomy overhead sky and impending rain did nothing to contain the enthusiasm of the Regiment or that of the onlookers to this traditional rite of passage. At the conclusion of the ceremony, the Class of 2009 made their customary dash to the outdoor swimming pool, where they dove in and splashed around in celebration.

You can view and order images from this set by clicking the Kings Point link at the top of this page.
