Best of Yonkers

This past week I was running around Yonkers photographing for the chamber of commerce.
Each year they do a readers poll to find the “best of” Yonkers. Stores, Restaurants, you name it.
I had a few favorites from the bunch. My all time favorite was Harrys Shoe Repair in the square. The owner was so cool and had this awesome store with wall to wall black and white photos, he even had the ceiling covered. Who knows maybe my shot of him will make it up there!

this next photo was shot in a tiny cigar shop where they roll fresh cigars. Not exactly my thing but the location and old school cigar rollers were awesome.

This last shot was simply a pint of Guiness. But after running around yonkers in 100 degree heat nothing was better : ) thats kinda why it made it into my favorites, I felt guilty that I drank it so fast, I figured it was an easy way to make it live on forever!

marilena and danny : 2009.7.25

Marilena and Danny’s wedding was the grand finale for the Balbi family and I. All together I photographed three weddings for them. I have to say that I felt honored that they selected me to photograph each wedding and also that they trusted me to do something different each time.

The image in the turn style at Playland is one of my favorite images in the series. So much that I added it to the opening section of my main site! Hey Marilena your going to be famous ; )

These next two images were photographed in the highly anticipated “new” lobby of the surf club.
Did it meet all the hype?
Lets just say I was impressed.

kim and rich : engaged

What a perfect night.
I just finished photographing Kim and Rich for their engagement and I could not be happier. We went to Manor Park in Larchmont, usually with a wedding party we stop right at the entrance because its a bit of a challenge to motivate an entire bridal party and also quite a hike for everyone to go into the park. BUT today we didn’t have any of those restrictions so away we went. The park itself is huge and has so many options for photos. Kim you look absolutely beautiful Im loving the first shot! Thanks for laying in the grass : )
