My adventure begins in a tiny village in the northwest of Germany. I know what you’re thinking – how on earth did I end up capturing elopements in the Big Apple then? Before I turned 30 the city had stolen my heart, after I arrived for an internship in Soho. In the beginning, I worked in architecture by day and studied photography by night. Now, I blend the best of both to create unrivalled backdrops for my couples eloping in New York City. Emotion, atmosphere, authenticity – I give couples it all, and have been for 12 years now.

What if the person who married you, on your most memorable day, in the best city in the world was a mix of your best friend, a shoulder to lean on, a kick-ass professional, and on top of that... plain hilarious? Wouldn’t that be ‘off the hook’ amazing?! Well, congratulations, you found your dream officiant! I was born in in Kansas but grew up in Portland, Oregon. New York City became home when I studied for my Bachelor in Musical Theatre. I have been marrying happy couples for the last 8 years now.

My name is Lucy and not only am I the mastermind behind this entire operation but I am also the only real New Yorker in this bunch. My job is to keep everyone on their toes and make the team laugh with all my shenanigans. When I'm not in school I love to play with my friends. Mainly online.

I am Dexter the Puggle and apparently I was named after a serial killer. No joke. My parents loved the Showtime Show Dexter and named me after it. I was born in Oklahoma but can't really remember a lot about that time. I moved to the "Big Apple" when I was a tiny little puppy. I'm really into chicken and anything meat related. Fetching stuff is not really my thing no matter how often my parents try. But I am into long walks around the neighborhood and good long naps. I keep everyone calm around this place.
