Sunset Cove : Tarrytown

I was asked be the owners of Sunset Cove in Tarrytown to photograph the restaurant and executive chef today for their new website. Tommy (one of the owners) and I worked together at my uncles restaurant Alex and Henry’s in Eastchester in the early 90’s and we occasionally see each other at events and things. Most recently tommy was a guest at Lisa and Justins wedding where I showed one of my slide shows during dinner and he asked if I could help with a project he was working on. They redesigned the interior of sunset cove and wanted something different to show it off. We decided to shoot the kitchen staff hard at work and thought it would give a different look to the overdone restaurant interiors you always see on restaurant websites. I had a lot of fun with this shoot and wanted to share it. As soon as the weather warms up and your looking for some place to relax give sunset cove a shot (I’m sure most of you already have) you will love it. And yes I did shoot a simple interior today to show off the amazing view this restaurant has. Its actually right under the bridge. So amazing!

Good thing come to those who wait!

Real quick story.
When I moved my business back to Bronxville six years ago I rented a small room (you all probably met me in it.) As time went on that small studio space started to get cramped. First I hired Ronnie then came Jason, Nancy, Kerry and Anthony. I’m going to need more space. I always had me eye on the office next to mine, after all there was a door leading from mine to it, but its was rented and stayed rented until last month. The “for rent” sign was up for a few hours before I contacted the landlord. Well it took a few days of negotiations and then it was mine! I’m so excited to show everyone the progress on the space. I will post some photos as I renovate it. When I signed the lease the walls were beige and the floor was carpeted. I will spare you all the photos of that nastyness! Here are a few that I took during the sanding of the floors. Im staining the floor black.

The best of engagement contest is over and…

Wow that got heated. I actually blocked comments for the below post in order to not let this get any more attention, I also removed some of the comments.

Plus for family and friends of Nicole #7 I spoke with her and offered her the canvas of her choice at my cost! My intention was to have a little fun with this not create a bride war : )

So yes #9 Christina and Mike you guys are the winners and you get a free 24×36 canvas gallery wrap.

The lesson learned here is that viral marketing is a power not to be reckoned with!
The next series of photos will be a best of weddings 2009 with no voting! Stay tuned.

You guys pick the winning image, and the couple who’s image is selected gets a free canvas gallery wrap. (24×36). In order to be fair I selected one image from each session I shot.
