We were thrilled to shoot the Ubuntu Education Fund inaugural Rock The Bowl fundraiser at Brooklyn Bowl. It was an incredible night full of amazing performances by Lion Of Ido, GrindCity, Bajah + the Dry Eye Crew and Antibalas and incredible food supplied by Blue Ribbon.

We were invited to capture the celebration of this adorable young lady’s First Holy Communion at The Crescent Beach Club.  It was a gorgeous day filled with family, dancing, candy, and love.  Another perfect example of why we love our job so much!

We are huge fans of Galapagos Art Space in Dumbo, Brooklyn and are so psyched whenever we are asked to shoot there.  They are on the way to being New York City’s first LEED certified ‘green’ cultural venue and host incredible cultural events, in addition to weddings and all sorts of parties.  This particular night was a combination Springtime Floating Kabarette and birthday party for the lucky Brendan, hosted by the hilarious Olga & Bjorn with amazing performances all night long.

First birthdays are awesome and we were thrilled when asked to shoot this little guy’s special day.  We are such suckers for love!  Baby love, puppy love, and plain old sappy romantic wedding love.  (sigh)  We think it’s pretty sweet that we get to be a part of so many of these special days…

We were lucky enough to attend the incredible and underground Shanghai Mermaid New Years Eve party in Brooklyn. Best described in Shanghai Mermaid’s own words: “It was an evening of entertainment from another era… 1930’s Shanghai, 1920’s Paris, Weimar Berlin, early gangster and jazz era New York.”  And it really was!  We captured performances by Veronica Varlow, the seductive and bewitching lady of burlesque and aerial magic by the beautiful Anya Sapozhnikova of Lady Circus.  We also snapped photos of our fellow revelers dancing alongside us all night…  Happy New Year everyone!!!
