Not too long ago I started working with the delicious Vintage Plantations Chocolate adding another string to my bow in the capacity of Sales and Marketing Director. Despite being surrounded by cocoa I still can't resist grabbing my camera and taking taking the odd shot here and there. See our latest Valentines Day blast and sample some of this pure bean to bar for yourselves at www.vintageplantations.com.
This beautiful couple gave me ample opportunity to shoot two things I love, wedding and documentary photography.
Kira and Juan had seen my work and after meeting we all knew it was going to be a good fit.
Their relaxed, willing attitude made for a fabulous pre wedding shoot around their favorite Battery Park promenade.
An intimate 11 Madison ceremony followed and then the whole family strolled through Madison Square Park giving us the spectacular Flat Iron as our backdrop.
The sun set too fast on his magical day but I hope they will treasure these unique images forever.

I love shooting parties.
One party I shot recently was a 1st birthday party and the room was full of family. Kids, aunts, uncles, friends, parents and in this particular case, a great grandmother.
As I was going about my job I suddenly I felt a tap on my arm. From where she sat Gerri introduced herself. “I am the great grandmother" she said as she pointed out granddad (her son). I knelt down beside her and we instinctively held hands. “There is a lot of love in this room” I said and her face lit up.
Gerri went on to tell me about her father and the house they lived in when she was a little girl. Rooms filled with wood paneling on the walls on which her father would hang the pictures of their family. Her father would say to her “my dear, there is a lot of love in this room”, she was warmed that the same words were used to describe her great grand daughters 1st birthday party so many years later.
Connecting with another human being in this simple way with just a few precious words make this job so special. Yes, it's about the images you take, but the connection with the people you meet along the way is the thing you remember most when your job is done.
I never ever tire of photographing my children. Looking back over the years, I remember one personal project that I loved shooting. It was of my eldest when she was just three years old, photographing her as she slept. I would sneak in, set my camera up and as quietly as I could with my small flashlight, paint her with streaks of light to capture just the barest detail. I love these images! Soon it will be time to do the same to my youngest, if I ever manage to get her to bed on time!
I hope you like them http://www.patricialbrown.com/personal-work/
