So I was already booked when my best friend from sleep away camp, Joanna told me her sister, Jessica was finally getting married ~ after being engaged for 6 years! 🙂 So I told them all about my wonderful friend and associate Roee was not!  So after showing off his work and discussing it over some yummy pizza. Jessica and her family decided that Roee should shoot the beautiful event!  Here is a link to the slideshow and have fun viewing the photos below!


Nicole and Asher! June 25, 2008

I love this couple…love love love them!  I shot their engagement photos almost a year before their wedding and was so excited to spend their day with them.  I absolutely adore the way they act with each other and how much they love, respect and want to care for each other. ALSO… I give Nicole props!  She was MORE then happy to take off her cute little white shoes and let Asher pick her up and carry her into the dirt and brush to get some cool shot in Battery Park.  Yah for awesome brides!! 🙂 

I had a blast with them and all their guests dancing the night away… to what Nicole liked to call “dirty south” music! 🙂 

Soooo fun!  click here to view their slideshow of awesome, touching photos and check out a sneak peak of a few below.

I was looking through some old files… I have decided that I want to create my own ketubah… they are just too expensive and my dear friend and associate Roee ~ who is from israel said he would be happy to write the hebrew text for me… 

so as I was looking through some things that might help me along I came across they photos of morgan and I from when we first started dating.. we took a day trip to coney island… and here are some of the black and whites from that day.


MAKE UP! June 13, 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — staceyilyse @ 4:22 pm

so for all of you who know me personally… you all know that I am the anti-make up girl.  I dont even wear chapstick!  hahaha!

well, last night I had my make up trial with the AMAZING Ida.  I have known Ida now for almost 3 years… she is just so gorgeous inside and out.  Ida is a professional make up artist who works for people like Carolina Herrara, and who knows who else as well as doing brides make up! She is actually doing my bride Kore (who’s ephotos are below this sunday!)  I am so fortunate to have her as a friend she is just a wonderful, kind, talented person!

So for the make up we decided that we wanted to go a little bit more glamorous ~ so she put on these great fake lashes, and did a subtle smokey eye.. and then the real kicker, red lips!  Which is exactly what I wanted!  I think it is going to look so great with my dress and bridecage veil. 

Here are some photos from last night ~ I was on the subway and got 2 compliments!

But I’ll be putting those up in a few weeks!  I had a lot of fun spending time with them and learning about their move to Chicago.. also Grace is so beautiful you cant take a bad photo of her! 

Here are some of my favorites from their e-shoot session!

So I shot a wedding 2 weeks ago for Cari and Nick at the wonderful Manhattan Penthouse! This couple was sooo much fun! They danced the night away, Nick had an awesome cream colors shnazzy tux and after the toasts Cari changed from her funky magenta j.crew high-heels into a pair of fun pink chuck taylors

Here are just a few photos from their day… Enjoy!
