It takes guts to be gentle and kind. The Smiths

You might want to grab a beer and get comfortable because this is a long one : ) This couple, and their pup Apollo, have a place in my heart forever. I was lucky enough to photograph their wedding(s)…yes you read that right. They were married twice, once in a traditional Vietnamese tea ceremony in Alyssa’s hometown in California and again in their beloved Catskills close to where they live now in NYC. Both weddings were just magical from start to finish and I’m really wishing they could have gone for number three because I just want to do it all over again. I’ll start with the Catskills and then keep scrolling to see California.
