happy fall + keeping up on instagram...

It's hard to believe that it's almost the end of October. Where did the Spring, Summer and Fall go? This year has been so incredibly busy that I haven't had much time to write any personal posts in a while. I just wanted to say hello and thank you so much for continuing to read and visit my little blog!

This is my favorite week of the year because not only is my wedding anniversary (we're celebrating FOUR wonderful years of marriage!) it's also my birthday. What could be better than that? I couldn't imagine my life without my husband and so happy he's by my side. I always tell my couples that being married is amazing and they are going to love it! My niece Emma is walking, talking and even says my name (sorta). She's growing up so fast and I'm excited to spend the holidays with her!

On the business side of things, each year I set goals for myself and I love looking back to see what I've accomplished and what I still need to work on. I was thrilled to photograph weddings at some of my favorite nyc venues including The Metropolitan Building, The River Cafe, The Green Building and 501 Union. I also was able to return to a few favorites places including The Montauk Yacht Club, Prospect Park Boathouse and The Lighthouse at Chelsea Piers. Oh, and I'm assisting in my first destination wedding in Puerto Rico - Hooray!

One of my major goals, since I started my wedding photography business, was to be published in Martha Stewart Weddings. I was beyond honored to have one of my favorite weddings featured on their website. Seriously, it's a dream come true! I also mentioned earlier in the year that I was lucky enough to photograph a book with Vané of Brooklyn Bride and Minhee of Paper + Cup. We've been working on that for the last six months and we couldn't be more proud of what we created together. I can't wait for you to see and I'll be sure to keep you posted once it's available for pre-orders!!

I'm looking forward to my last few weddings of the season (yay!) and then enjoying the holidays relaxing and recharging with my friends and family. If you're a facebook fan, it's becoming harder and harder for you to see my posts so be sure to visit my Instagram feed to see what I'm currently up too. You can follow @brklynview and be sure to say hello! Stay tuned for lots of pretty weddings and beautiful engagement sessions coming soon. xo, Jainé

A Charming Wedding at The Farm on Adderley. Brooklyn Wedding Photographer

There is something so wonderful about hosting a small intimate wedding to celebrate your marriage. Esther and Peter decided to get married at City Hall and have a private wedding reception at The Farm on Adderley located in Brooklyn. Their loving families flew in from Korea to be with them on their wedding day. After their ceremony, we visited the Brooklyn Bridge and Dumbo for their bridal portraits before making our way over to their party at Adderley. A small group of their best friends and closest family members were awaiting their arrival. As part of the heritage tradition, Esther and Peter read their wedding vows among their guests. It was so sweet to hear how much they love and cherish each other. As the bride was planning her trip from afar, she enlisted Lindsey Brunk as her wedding stylists to help bring her vision to life. Esther designed her own wedding dress, wore a flower crown and held a bright bouquet of peach and red flowers. Fourteen-Forty created custom calligraphy escort cards and Lael Cakes baked the most beautiful (and delicious) red velvet wedding cake. Guests were treated to delicious macaron favors that coordinated with their wedding colors. Esther and Peter are the kindest, sweetest and most generous couple I've had the pleasure of photographing. It was such an honor to be part of their engagement and capture their wedding day. I wish them a lifetime of love and happiness! xo, Jainé

Modern Romantic Wedding at The Metropolitan Building. NYC Wedding Photographer.

On a gorgeous summer day, Dana and Jon were married at the stunning Metropolitan Building in Long Island City. The happy couple have been together for over 5 years and are parents to two cute yorkies. They wanted to create a modern romantic, vintage inspired wedding and hired Michelle Edgemont to help bring their vision to life. Their wedding was filled with blush color, gold accents and pops of pink. Dana wore a flowy pale blush wedding dress with silver kate spade shoes adorned with a crystal beaded belt from Kleinfelds. Blossom and Branch created the most stunning wedding bouquet using a mix of pink, yellow and soft peach flowers wrapped with gold metallic strands of ribbon. I had a lot of fun exploring the Metropolitan Building because it has so many wonderful spaces, backgrounds and unique props which help to create gorgeous wedding photographs. I'm obsessed with Dana and Jon in the mirror room - simply gorgeous! Under the floral chuppah, Dana and Jon exchanged their wedding vows and became husband and wife. Their guests cheered with happiness to the new Mr. and Mrs! The newlyweds peach ombre wedding cake was almost too good to eat! I'm so honored I could be part of Dana and Jon's wedding day. They were such a blast to get to know and I'm thrilled to photograph one of the happiest days in their lives. Congratulations Newlyweds!!
