End of Year Thanks...

Thanks to all our wonderful clients and industry friends for making 2009 such a terrific year for 4Eyes Photography. Despite the tough climate we were blessed with one of our busiest years ever !
Highlights included photographing Alyssa Milano & David Bugliaro's magical 'country chic' wedding in the summer, at a private estate in NJ. Design & planning was by Colin Cowie Events and the guest list included some of Hollywood's most famous faces !
In addition to our studio on West 21st Street in Manhattan we also opened an office in Nyack NY, serving the Hudson Valley and Tri-State area, which has been keeping us busy !
Together with a host of fabulous city weddings, we also managed to dodge the rainy summer with some spectacular tented affairs on the water in Rye NY , Greenwich CT, Montauk NY and a beautiful event in NJ that will be featured in the 2010 issue of Real Simple Weddings - on sale in January 2010.
Wishing everyone a peaceful Holiday Season and wonderful New Year and look forward to hearing from you soon !

4EYES appear on the TLC television Show "Cake Boss" !

Scenes from the episode of 'Cake Boss' that will air November 15th @ 10pm ... !
Kellie & Rupert of 4Eyes will appear on an episode of next Season's hit TLC reality TV Show "CAKE BOSS".
Cake Boss is based on the adventures of Buddy Valastro, the master baker of Carlo's City Hall Bake Shop, in Hoboken NJ. 4Eyes appear photographing the bride & groom and wedding party, when buddy himself delivers the cake to the reception, held at The Liberty House in New Jersey.
The cake was actually a Groom Cake and was a surprise for the groom. It was an amazing replica of an extreme fighting ring, complete with two fighting figures ( which the groom was a big fan of).

4Eyes Photography shot the beautiful wedding at The Libery House in NJ, New York Harbor, back in August '09.

See 4Eyes in action on the TLC show, which will air on November 16th 2009 @ 10pm on the TLC channel.. Click HERE for local schedules.

Stylish Bowery Hotel Wedding

Mariko & Jim's wedding @ the ulta-chic BOWERY HOTEL.
Mariko was from Japan and Jim from Boston and the 2 got ready in separate rooms of their full floor apartment, just down the road from the wedding. This was a great opportunity for Kellie to get some fashion shots of Mariko while rupert hung with the guys and got some shots of the groom putting on his equally cool outfit !
We all jumped into limos afterwards and drove to SoHo and Washington Square Park for shots of the couple. The jumping shots are all real (!) and Jim was a trooper leaping into the air for the amazing "action" shot !
The weddding and reception were all held back @ The Bowery Hotel with the couple officially married by a friend who became ordained just for the event !

Fun Tent Wedding In NJ

Beautiful, fun tent wedding on a private estate in NJ.
The bride added all sorts of fun elements, including a chic 'Country Wedding" theme, with chalk boards for guests to write little notes and have themselves photographed. The groom even wrote a special, hilarious song for the bride, which he performed on guitar , right after the ceremony.
We got some great shots of the couple around the property and dodging the summer thunder storms !

Tent Wedding in Greenwich Ct.

This was a spectacular wedding with a tented Reception & Ceremony, on the grounds of the brides' parents house in Greenwich Ct. The portraits were done on a private waterfront estate, with the long Island Sound as a backdrop.
After the ceremony the reception was in another massive tent that had been transformed into a fabulous old world ballroom, with velvet couches, chandeliers and huge swimming pool covered in glass for dancing over the water !

Ferghil ( from ireland) married Prasuna ( from Russia) at a Greek Restaurant called Thalassa in Tribecca New York.
The groom met his family at a classic old New York Pub ( Walkers) and then walked with everyone to the wedding site around the corner.

Sunset Wedding in The Hudson Valley

Great wedding at Tappan Hill in Tarrytown NY. Even though it was very early May it was like mid-Summer !

The ceremony was high on the grounds of Tappan Hill's beautiful property in Tarrytown NY, run by Abigail Kirsch.
The setting overlooking the Hudson River was perfect for shots of the couple alone, with their Wedding Party and then the actual ceremony as the sun set, with Nyack in the distance.

During the lavish reception we also got some great shots in the round lobby and staircase area of the couple reflecting in an ornate mirror !

Fun Wedding @ The Tribeca Rooftop

We just shot a really fun wedding at The Tribeca Rooftop in New York.

the bride got ready around the corner at the spectacular bachelor pad loft of a friend, complete with pool table and state of the art designs ! We got some beautiful shots of her & her friends getting ready and then met the groom for shots of the couple on the cobbled streets down the road from the venue.

The groom was from Brazil and celebrations started early and went long into the night with a DJ and live musicians playing though-out the night ! We got some great shots of the couple on the roof deck and from up above during the ceremony.....a really fun wedding !

Planning was by the lovely Christine from Exquisite Affairs Productions
