Lela Rose shows her new Bridal Collection

Today I got to swing by Leyla Rose for Quest Magazine to check out the new collection of Bridal Wear.
I was amazed to see there was not one strapless gown in her new collection. That makes life really great for future brides who will not be tugging all night on their dresses and pulling them up every time they move.
Here is a sneak peak of what is in store for the new season.

The NY Metropolitan Opera Fall Gala 2014

Last week I had the great pleasure to shoot  The NY Metropolitan Opera Fall Gala 2014 at Lincoln Center. Arriving at 5 I was just in time to catch the first arrivals as they headed up to the second floor for cocktails before the opera.
As always it was a sea of gowns and gorgeous people.
I watched the opera outside on the plaza with people who were lucky to be enjoying the free tickets.
Afterwards the guests went into the tent designed by David Stark for the dinner.

Lincoln Center Philharmonic 2014 Fall Gala

This week was the Lincoln Center Philharmonic 2014 Fall Gala and I was so happy to be the house photographer. I got there nice and early and the first guest to arrive was the most beautiful Karen LeFrack. Back from China where The Chinese Philharmonic had just performed one of her compositions ( I confess I didn't know she wrote music) she looked stunning and relaxed. We had a chance to chat and we both shared how much we both enjoy the time at an event before all the guests arrive.
Woody Allen was seated beside her at the dinner and so many guests made there way over to say hello.
I watched the concert from the offices upstairs where I was bust downloading the cocktail photos and getting them out to the press then I raced over to the dinner just before the curtain came down.
What a beautiful night.

Quest September 2014 Fashion Issue Cover with Amanda Hearst

I have to say I was very excited when Daniel Cappello called and asked me to photograph the Fall fashion story and cover for QUEST MAGAZINE, September 2014 with Amanda Hearst. I have known Amanda since my days at Town & Country Magazine and I had photographed her many times for the party pages but this was the first time I had had the luxury of doing a fashion shoot with her.
Elizabeth Meigher who co produced the shoot with Daniel was there to help and kept Finn the fabulous Pup engaged in the photos.
Daniel had pulled together some amazing gowns, fabulous shoes and jewelry plus organized the location at The Highline Hotel.

Alexandra and Benjamin's wedding at Cipriani 42nd St planned by Harriette Rose Katz for Gourmet Advisory as seen in Grace Ormonde Fall 2014.

It is always incredible  to photograph a beautiful wedding. It takes so much work to organize such a wonderful day and in the case of Alexandra and Benjamin they turned towards Harriette Rose Katz and her staff at Gourmet Associates to take care of all the little details.
It was truly amazing walking into Cipriani 42nd st. The space was transformed into a wonderland of flowers and candles.
Here are the pages from the up coming issue of Grace Ormonde where the wedding is featured.

The 10th Annual Notable Occasion at Carnegie Hall

Last night was The 10th Annual Notable Occasion at Carnegie Hall. I arrived early to photograph the Bulgari Family on stage with the musicians before the event began.
There is something so amazing to stand on the stage and look out at the theater and so I felt so great being able to take photos there.
After the concert the party moved across the street where everyone got to mix and mingle with old friends and new.
