I am a New York based photographer who has shot weddings from the beaches of Mexico to the Tuscan Hills of Italy, from the coast of Andalusia to the waterfalls of Iceland. And, of course, all over the five boroughs, the tri-state, and the 50 states.

I love everything about weddings. My goal is to capture them with a classic technique that has a fresh, modern feel. I am nuts about vintage cameras and actual film that you can touch. I shoot in both film and digital, depending on your preference, and I feel that each medium brings something special to the table.

I have had the privilege of having my work featured in New York Magazine, Martha Stewart Weddings, Elegant Bride, Modern Bride, Vanity Fair, Inside Weddings, Elle, Well Wed, Vermont Vows, Grace Ormonde Wedding Style, La Bella Bride, and The Knot. Read less

What can we say about Cappy? From the first moment we met here we just new it would be a great working relationship. She is super sweet, organized and willing to be creative and flexible. Whatever you want she will do everything to make it happen! "You want pictures outside, in the freezing cold with snow, no problem". Her pictures are to die for and we are so happy with them. We have gotten so many comments from friends and family stating "These should be in a wedding magazine". If you want pictures that are timeless and classy then Cappy is your girl!

Cappy is a wonderful photographer. Her work is simply amazing and she is so fun to work with. The day of the wedding we barely realized she was there/she was so unobtrusive but truly captured the essence of our day right down to the expression on our faces. She also asks you alot of questions before your day so she knows what you are trying accomplish and what photos are important to you. I would highly highly recommend her. She is truly worth it.

Cappy was a pleasure to work with, and our photos are gorgeous. She used a variety of cameras, so we ended up with a great mix of new digital images and old vintage prints. She was easy going and fun to be with. We would highly recommend her.

Our wedding wouldn't have been the same without Cappy! Right from the start, we knew that deciding to work with her was one of the best decisions that we made. She completely understood our vision and was able to capture our day in the most beautiful way. From the engagement shoot to the wedding, she always made us feel comfortable in front of the camera. Cappy took such incredible pictures of all the important moments on our day, yet, our favorite pictures were the small moments when we didn't even realize she was shooting. We strongly recommend working with Cappy and have her to thank for capturing our wedding day in the most magical way!

Cappy shot both our wedding and rehearsal dinner. WE LOVE our photos. She is so sweet and professional and truly captured all of the important moments throughout both days. We didn't have a videographer and I feel like our pictures easily tell the story of both nights. She even managed to get all of the "posed" shots thad we had requested. We really enjoyed working with her and couldn't imagine having anyone else share our special day.

In short, Cappy was every couples dream photographer.

My husband was really focused on finding a vendor who could capture every special moment and turn it in to a work of art. After searching high and low from overseas (We are based in the UK), we found Cappy. Correspondence across the Atlantic commenced and we arranged to meet in NYC to have a chat and see how we got on; we loved her blog and portfolio but it seemed important to us that we 'clicked' too. In person, Cappy is warm, professional and clearly extremely competent at what she does. We spent a lot of time going over our thoughts for the big day and discussing the various types of films and cameras to be used.

On our wedding day, Cappy was prompt and perfect. She spent the whole day making sure that nothing was missed and that we had a complete and stunning photographic account of what happened. We quickly received all of our photos presented beautifully and digital copies too.

The quality of the photographs were beyond anything we'd expected and truly look like something from a magazine. We will cherish them forever and are indebted to Cappy for all of her hard work.

I've been meaning to write this review for ages, but I can promise that anyone who needs a high quality, talented photographer for their NY wedding need look no further than Cappy. If you're interested, we're on her blog under 'Brits in Brooklyn.'

We love Cappy! She listened to our needs and captured so many of those incredible moments that we either a) missed or b) experienced but never want to forget. She also did our engagement photos which are stunning as well.

Our photos are incredible - we will treasure them forever. Thanks, Cappy!
