Allswell Friends & Family Night

Allswell
Last Friday I got invited to friends and family night at Allswell, Chef Nate Smith’s new restaurant in Williamsburg (124 Bedford Ave at N. 10th St).

The whole night was fantastic. I was mostly in the kitchen while Nate, Alexis and Sara were pumping out dish after dish. I”m thrill to go back and eat some more because the food that night…oh the food that night was so delicious. Also they have the awesomest wallpapers.

Andy & Mary Anne

It’s been a while since I took photos at a wedding, actually I haven’t been to a wedding in a long time. I stopped taking wedding photos because I’m afraid I will mess up everything. It’s somebody’s special day and it’s impossible to do it again. But Andy’s a friend and I was honored when he asked me to shoot his wedding.

It was a super fun weekend and the wedding was awesome. It rained the entire Saturday but it wasn’t too bad and was able to get some photos outside.

Congrads again to Andy and Mary Anne!

Jane’s Sweet Buns

Jane's Sweet Buns

Last week I did a behind-the-scenes shoot at Jane’s Sweet Buns for Serious Eats NY (you can check it out here) and it was one of the funnest shoot. It’s always weird taking photos of someone you just met but I try to pretend that I’ve known them for awhile and we’re just catching up. Jane Danger, owner, was super chill and fun to talk to.

Here are some photos that didn’t make it to the article.

The Brooklyn Local

BUY

Wow I was pretty impressed with The Brooklyn Local event by City Harvest. The event was to raise money for City Harvest (City Harvest works with greenmarkets and restaurants to take their food that usually would go to waste and gives them to the needy).

I was impressed by how organized the event was and it never felt too crowded even with the 75 local food vendors. Looking forward to next year.
