Cassi Claire » Wedding Photographer serving NYC, NJ, PA, CT, NY

“I’m so picky with photographers and I’m so glad we finally found you!” Simultaneously the most nerve-wracking and most ego inducing sentence on the planet! #nopressure

But seriously, Ryan and Carolina, I’m so glad we found each other! Walking around Central Park with you two was so much fun! Somehow you two manage to be really-really-ridiculously-good-looking while also being so humble and sweet! Counting down the days until your wedding at The Ryland Inn next May! :)

The cutest little nose crinkle! 

Carolina you are TOO beautiful!! Stop it!

Congratulations to Lexy and Geoff on their engagement!!! Woo hoo! I can’t wait to photograph their wedding next June at the Bourne Mansion! To celebrate, we explored the South Street Seaport together and laughed the whole time. I can’t get over how cute these two are! They first met when Geoff was tutoring Lexy in finance in college…if he can make numbers romantic, then this fella is a KEEPER!! ;)

The Brooklyn Bridge always looks so dreamy!

All the cutes!

Can’t wait for the big day you two!! xoxox!

It was such a dream photographing Brittany and Ben’s gorgeous wedding at the Ashford Estate in Allentown, NJ! I don’t think I can choose a favorite moment…the all-white barn, the post-ceremony lavender toss, the lawn games, seeing so many familiar faces in attendance, or the insane amount of love shared between Ben & Brittany and all their family and friends! The whole day was PERFECTION! <3 But seriously though…did I mention the all-white barn?! Swooooon!!!

These soft & sweet Jenny Yoo bridesmaids dresses were oh-so-perfect!

Three generations in one photo – so precious!

I’m thinking the Ashford Estate is my new favorite venue! C’mon…just look at that!

Tree swings are so magical and romantic! 

Literally the happiest child on the planet! :)

Note to self: Add life-size Jenga to Christmas list. 

Pinch me! The prettiest ceremony space! #stillswooning

The whole area smelled AMAZING after the lavender toss! Such a great idea!

I loved seeing so many familiar faces at this wedding! Friends from CAMP-of-the-WOODS, Jacksonville Chapel, the “Butler Mafia” and more! So much fun!!!

Some of my past brides will recognize the lovely Lauren below! Lauren and I have photographed weddings together for years, but it was nice to see her have the chance to boogie on the dance floor as a guest! And I may have stolen a dance or two as well! ;)

The Groove Shop killin’ it on the dance floor! I HIGHLY recommend this band! They are awesome!

I like that Ben + Brittany switched it up and went with a glow stick exit! I’ve never seen that before and it was the perfect way to end the night! Congrats you two cuties! We wish you an eternity of happiness & love!!! :)

I’m so excited to FINALLY share Pamela + Ryan’s wedding photos from The Foundry in LIC!! You are seriously going to swoon over this incredible wedding which was featured on the oh-so-beautiful wedding blog Elizabeth Anne Designs yesterday! Pamela’s wedding was sort of like if raw & industrial had a baby with soft & romantic. In order to enhance the raw space of The Foundry, Pamela chose a clean color palette for her wedding party (gray & navy) and then threw in pops of mint, metallic gold, and silver. Literally every single detail you can think of was covered! It was almost like a scavenger hunt trying to find all the super cute personal touches the couple added to the day. I mean, the girl had like SIX different invitation suites (all gorgeous!) that she designed herself! Amazing!! And while details were super important to this wedding planner bride, she still says “the ceremony led by our good friend; the hilarious speeches by our best men, maid of honor, and parents; and the fact that I’m married to Ryan Meiser…far exceeded anything I could have ever dreamed up!” Exactly as it should be! :)

Pamela started her day with a Bridal luncheon at ICI Restaurant with the closest women in her life. They all wore white while she donned a bright coral dress to match the decor. What a fun way to begin the wedding day!

Ryan and his groomsmen spent their morning at Fellow Barber in Brooklyn…who says girls get to have all the fun??

How amazing are these New York/Frank Sinatra inspired wedding invites?! Down to the stamps!

It was only fitting that their First Look would have a great city view in the background!

I can’t get enough of this Momofuku Milk Bar cake, mostly because of the adorable mint stand & cloche!

A little southern charm mixed in! :)

Is this real life? 

One of my favorite elements of the reception decor was the table “numbers!” Pamela loved the idea of her guests signing wine bottles as their guest book, but she took it one step further. Each table number was also the anniversary year that they plan to open the wine, AND the label of each wine bottle matched that year’s traditional anniversary gift (Year one – Paper…Year two – Cotton…and so on).

Congratulations again Pamela & Ryan! Thanks for inviting me into your wedding adventure! And I wish I had like a thousand more of those pretzels – YUM!! :)

I’ve been sooo behind on blogging my recent press, but I’m trying to catch up! :) I’ll start with sharing that Iliza + Alan’s GORGEOUS wedding day was featured on Rustic Wedding Chic this summer! Their wedding was full of incredible personal details, like the couple canned hundreds of pickles for their guests to take home as favors (and boy were they yummy!). Check out all the pretties over on Rustic Wedding Chic!

Congratulations Steph & Steve!! You may remember these cuties from their Brooklyn engagement session last year! I’m so excited to finally share their wedding day! I call Steph my little DIY Queen – she’s AMAZING! She pretty much hand-made every single design element in her wedding, and her vision for a fall-inspired rustic and romantic wedding was spot on! From Jenny Yoo bridesmaids dresses in various shades of plum, lavender, and raisin to the burlap sacks of coffee that each guest took home, every detail was intentional and beautiful! Hurricane Joaquin may have made an appearance, but that only makes the day that much more memorable! All the best stories involve a little adventure right?! ;)

All the cute girls in their matching plaid! Love it!

I just love this “First Look” moment between Steph and her father!

Their dog Blake was very curious about what Chris was doing with Steve’s shoes! :)

The couple were wed at Holy Name of Mary in Valley Stream, NY. 

Artichokes, succulents, and wheat…oh my! 

I love this cake topper from Better Off Wed!

Remember these beautiful faces?! I photographed Donna & Oleg’s wedding back in 2013! The funniest part about this photo is that I was wearing this exact dress at their wedding TWO YEARS AGO!! Good thing Kate Spade never goes out of style! :)

Oh yes, that is grandpa catching the garter!

I don’t always photograph families, but when I do it’s the Calabrese family!! Keri & Dan were one of my wedding couples back in 2012 and they have since recommended me to everyone they know getting married! It’s been an honor to photograph so many of Keri’s friends and I couldn’t think of a better way to thank her than to celebrate her new family with a photo session! Little Lucas is cute as can be, and I’m sure his sister in mommy’s belly will be just as adorable! :)

I had to sneak in a photo of Keri’s watch…it’s just too cute! Also, I love that Keri created these beautiful pink ribbon dream catchers as a way of including their soon-to-be daughter in the session! #adorbs

Thank you Keri for all the support you’ve given me over the years! You trusted me in the early years of my business and that means more to me than you’ll ever know!!! Love you guys, and I love watching your family grow!! Congrats you cuties! <3
