    Pictures look great Kimberly. You’ve won my respect as the hardest working photog I’ve ever seen!

Pam and Jen had an incredibly gorgeous and fun wedding in Central Park, so I am proud to share that The Knot wanted to feature their wedding not only on the Real Weddings section of their website, but also in a special edition online magazine geared toward gay weddings!

bride and groom portraits - color

The rollicking joy of their wedding day was a testament to the depth of Amanda and Ezra’s feelings about each other. Not only were the toasts extra entertaining (one of my favorite songs, “Grow Old With You”, was involved), but the wedding guests must have spent hours plotting how best to amuse and delight the bride and groom with their simcha dancing:)It was obvious how much love they have for each other and for all of their family and friends!
