Kathi Littwin Photography bio picture
  • Welcome to my Blog

    Hello, I'm Kathi Littwin a New York and Brooklyn based photographer. I love what I do and I love sharing it with everyone. It's so nice to have a forum where I can post new samples of the wonderful weddings, events and portraits that come my way. It's also a great place to let you in on some of my favorite vendors.

    I've been shooting weddings and events in New York City and points beyond for over 15 years now. I have been a photographer for more years than I care to say. I was always one of the art kids back in the day and if I could turn a term paper into an art project I did.  The School of Visual Arts actually accepted me as an illustration major but I switched over to photography, preferring the immediacy and storytelling qualities of the medium.

    Please enjoy your visit. I hope to hear from you soon.

What is a wedding about and what makes for great wedding photographs?  As much as we love to gush about all the lovely details and personal touches, a wedding is about people. It’s about family and friends coming together to celebrate the beginning of a new family and to share some joy. Great photographs can, bring you back to the day, run the movie in your head and hopefully bring a smile to your face. That said, the details are what make wedding planning so much fun. They make up the canvas for this story to play out on. The best images strike a balance between these two elements. The details and scenics give you a sense of style and place while the candid photos show who these people are. Add some formals, because we know how important they are, and you have a wedding story. The photos below tell you a lot about this beautiful day last May. It was elegant and lovely without being fussy. The weather was perfect, the setting sublime but most importantly you can see the love and happiness in the faces of  Maddie & Hawkins and all of the their guests.

And because a blog about a wedding is very much about the details, here are the credits: The ceremony venue was Good Shepard Catholic Church in Rhinebeck, NY.  The reception venue was The Mashomack Preserve Club in Pine Plains, NY. The Event Planners were Every Little Detail, thank you Danielle, Kayla and Matthew. David Thieringer at Mashomack was the florist, Stortz Lighting lit the place up. Music was by the Band of New York. 1st Student Bus Company provided the little yellow school bus for the bridesmaids. Wheels of Time furnished the gorgeous baby blue vintage Pontiac for the bride & groom. Maureen Pedala on Make-up. Claudia Pedala and Jennifer Hetherington on hair. Last but certainly not least my wonderful second shooter, Miana Jun.

Kristen & Jeremy are having a lovely summer wedding at the Wainwright House. For their engagement shoot they wanted to me mix it up with some gritty city backgrounds and Central Park. It was fun getting to know them while we moved around the city. I especially like the graffitied building at 190 Bowery. The gentleman on the steps was happy to play along as well. This area is on the verge of some major changes and the couple wanted to freeze it in time. It will be great to look back as these spaces as they evolve.

Kate & Patrick were married this summer in Greenwich, CT. with the ceremony at The First Presbyterian Church and the reception at the Belle Haven Club. What I love about this wedding is how natural and relaxed it was. Of course it had the energy that comes from anticipation but the day just flowed in such a fun and beautiful way. A Polished Plan led by Jessica Tocko kept the day running smoothly. The Floral Design was done by Elegant Effects. Lighting and Party Decor by Social Decor. The tent was by the Cove Tent Company. The cake by Sweet Lisa, video by the Lightmill. My second shooter was the always fabulous Miana Jun.Belle_Haven_Wedding_Greenwich_Ct_450Belle_Haven_Wedding_Greenwich_Ct_451Belle_Haven_Wedding_Greenwich_Ct_452Belle_Haven_Wedding_Greenwich_Ct_453Belle_Haven_Wedding_Greenwich_Ct_454Belle_Haven_Wedding_Greenwich_Ct_455Belle_Haven_Wedding_Greenwich_Ct_456Belle_Haven_Wedding_Greenwich_Ct_457Belle_Haven_Wedding_Greenwich_Ct_458Belle_Haven_Wedding_Greenwich_Ct_459Belle_Haven_Wedding_Greenwich_Ct_460Belle_Haven_Wedding_Greenwich_Ct_461Belle_Haven_Wedding_Greenwich_Ct_462Belle_Haven_Wedding_Greenwich_Ct_463Belle_Haven_Wedding_Greenwich_Ct_464Belle_Haven_Wedding_Greenwich_Ct_465Belle_Haven_Wedding_Greenwich_Ct_466Belle_Haven_Wedding_Greenwich_Ct_467Belle_Haven_Wedding_Greenwich_Ct_468Belle_Haven_Wedding_Greenwich_Ct_469Belle_Haven_Wedding_Greenwich_Ct_470Belle_Haven_Wedding_Greenwich_Ct_471Belle_Haven_Wedding_Greenwich_Ct_472Belle_Haven_Wedding_Greenwich_Ct_473Belle_Haven_Wedding_Greenwich_Ct_474Belle_Haven_Wedding_Greenwich_Ct_475Belle_Haven_Wedding_Greenwich_Ct_476Belle_Haven_Wedding_Greenwich_Ct_477Belle_Haven_Wedding_Greenwich_Ct_478Belle_Haven_Wedding_Greenwich_Ct_479Belle_Haven_Wedding_Greenwich_Ct_480

Melanie & Mike’s wedding earlier this year consisted of two parts. The first was an intimate ceremony on Thursday at Mike’s parent’s home. Then that Saturday they invited friends and family to celebrate with a cool cocktail party at Haven’s Kitchen. The venue is a unique space near Union Square. Part cooking school, part specialty food shop and varied event space, it has a mission and a vibe that resonates with people who care about food. They even took care of the floral arrangements. Mel’s dress was a fabulous choice by Alice & Olivia. The cake was made with love by the bride/pastry chef at Mini Melanie, yes there is a connection. The light that afternoon was gorgeous and we all enjoyed a wonderful time.
