NYC Elopement & Proposal Photographer ● Pennace Photography
If there are two things I know really, really well, it’s New York City and photography. I came to NYC in 2001 to attend college, as a shy teenager from the middle of nowhere, dropped into one of the biggest and busiest cities in the world. Once I arrived in New York, I knew this was it. This is where I belong. I have lived all around the city over the years and have spent countless days exploring. I know hidden away spots in this city nobody else does. I know where all the best views are, and where to go to be in the middle of it all – but still have complete privacy.
Photography really brought me out of my shell. I’ve always been kind of awkward and nerdy – did I mention I’m also in a ghost hunting group? – but there is something about taking photos in this very busy city that is relaxing and also exhilarating. It is hard to describe, but it’s kind of like being seen by everyone and no one at once.
I LOVE meeting new people, and capturing love. Because of this, I specialize in elopements/small weddings as well as surprise marriage proposals (though I do book a select few full day weddings too!). Hundreds of happy clients later and I’m still feeling like this is my very first day after leaving my day job, when I was full of giddy excitement.
I’ve been a full-time photographer for four years, living and working in a city I adore. I get to share my love of New York with new people all the time. And they share their love stories with me.
If you’re interested in sharing your story with me, I can show you the city maybe you’ve only ever seen in the movies – or I can show you parts of the city you’ve never even dreamed of. I’m cool either way, but no matter what, we’ll take in beautiful sights and have a lot of laughs along the way.
