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.

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 is was. Of course it had the energy that comes from anticipation but the day just flowed and the story unfolded for me to capture. There were some lovely surprises like twin white bicycles to pose with and perfect weather. I already knew the venue would be stellar because we did the engagement shoot and “save the date” photo exactly a year before at the club. Kate and Patrick were always in the moment on their wedding day. You could feel the love but you could also see the joy and absolute fun that the couple, their families and friends were having. I can’t look at these images without a big grin sneaking up on me.

Kate’s hair was styled by Dana Bartone and her make-up was by Margret. The brides bouquet and floral decor were by Elegant Effects. The simple white palette was subtle but gorgeous and so fit with the vibe of the day. Bridesmaids dresses were by Joanne August and the tuxes were from Michael’s Formal Wear.

Other thanks and credits go to Hank Lane for the reception music, The Light Mill for video, Cove Tent Company, Cake by Sweet Lisa, lighting and fabric decor by Social Decor and most importantly to Jessica Tocko and her team at A Polished Plan for the wedding coordinating and my always fabulous second shooter Miana Jun.

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.

You might recognize these two. Alex and Andrea were here on January 1st and we had an early morning shoot in Central Park. Well they came back to NYC for another visit before the baby is born. This time we shot in Dumbo and even though it was too early to ride the Carousel, we had loads of great spots to use as a Brooklyn backdrop. The light that morning gave a beautiful soft glow to many of the pictures.New York City Portrait shootNew York City Portrait shootNew York City Portrait shootNew York City Portrait shootNew York City Portrait shootNew York City Portrait shootNew York City Portrait shootNew York City Portrait shootNew York City Portrait shoot

    Alex - Just perfect!!! We love it!!!You are the best!!

Just this April I had the pleasure of shooting Isobel & Brian’s wedding in Washington DC. It was planned for the day which is usually the height of cherry blossom season, however because of this year’s cold spell it ended up being a week before peak. It didn’t really matter because the weather was beautiful, the couple had smiles all day long, the ceremony was intimate and the party was a blast. As I scroll through the photos the feelings of love, connection and joy all come back to me.

The ceremony took place at The Friends Meeting House of Washington DC. The space is the simplest of venues. Without distractions the couple and their guests became the focus. The room was enhanced by white pillows on the benches and candles lined up in front. A single guitarist provided the music. At one point of the service everyone joined hands. It created a real feeling of connection.

The reception was held at The Metropolitan Club where the style moved from simple to elegant.  The floral arrangements by Petals Edge were white with soft pink accents. The centerpieces were cherry blossom branches. Sara Muchnick was the planner who with her team did a fabulous job. Miana Jun was my always wonderful second shooter.

As I look through all these photos I love how they weave together to tell the story. The energy builds and really connects you to the celebration even if you just know them from my blog. Thanks to everyone who made this a most wonderful wedding.

As the weather finally warms, and spring is in the air, we know that wedding season is just around around the corner. I thought I’d get things started here on the blog with a sunny engagement shoot we did awhile back for Kathleen & Patrick’s wedding. We chose a few locations as backdrops and then had some fun. For me an engagement or portrait shoot starts with a lovely setting and light that also flatters the subjects. When these two elements are in place I can then focus on the couple, their expressions and the connection they have together. I love the results we got and look forward to shooting their wedding this summer.
