These Canadians traveled all the way over to NYC to enjoy good food, good wine and…. and amazing engagement session! They wanted their sesion to encapsulate New York City and the concrete jungle that it is. We picked a few hot spots, Times Square, Central Park and the Brooklyn bridge.. and they definitely made it work. It was amazing because once we got to Brooklyn Bridge Park it was drizzeling a bit… mostly fog perspiration… but it made for some amazing photographs. It was even more great because they were both super patient, super laid back and was loving it because we were creating such memorable photographs and gifs! I had so much fun with these two,.. and definitely got some of the best photos yet in my career! Enjoy!!
Shooting Melanie and Matt’s engagement session was a TON of fun. They picked out a bunch of hot spots that they frequented when they lived in the Upper West Side. They chose the subway station they always got out of, the supermarket they always shopped at, the cafe they always got their sweets on and then the gardens they used to take strolls in nearby their old apartment. This entire engagement photo shoot was everything that represented their relationship– and that’s what made it so special. Not to mention- I love shooting in the most unique places- supermarkets O__O!! Working with these two was so easy and fun and these photos definitely capture their relationship and personality. Enjoy!
It was great to be a part of this wedding “on the cape”. (AKA, on the Cod) :p Sarah and Jason have been dating since college years and have been together since. They are such a cute couple their wedding day was full of friends and family that came from all over to celebrate. They currently live in Houston, TX but wanted to come back to the East Coast (they are natives) to get married. Sarah is an amazing designer so the wedding was filled with beautiful DIY projects. It was truly an interesting day- including a trip to the swamps
Meet Alex and Shekhar (pronounce shake-er). These two are fun, silly, hilarious and totally fun to work with. Alex is from New York City and Shekhar hails from New Jersey. When we were brainstorming ideas and places for the session, we decided a bridge that brings together NY and NJ would be perfect! So we chose the George Washington Bridge. Knowing that, I also suggested going to Mitsuwa (a Japanese supermarket and food court) that was nearby. This place also houses some of the best ramen on the East Coast- which worked out perfectly since Shekhar says their first date was over a bowl of ramen! So cute! Here are some highlights:
When you have a outdoor wedding in Fort Tryon Park… it’s going to be amazing. Hands down. Lauren and Eric couldn’t have planned it ANY more beautifully. The weather was perfect, their outfits were perfect– and the florals for this wedding- everything blew me out of the water. Lauren and Eric are really down to earth, fun loving, food loving people. So they really match well with me Their sense of style also really resonated with me as well. Their wedding favors were mini Tabasco sauces that were entitled “keeping it spicy”!! HAHA! I die. It was so amazing.
One crazy part of this wedding was wayyy back, when they booked me, they were really excited to tell me about this awesome florist that Eric used to stop by at Brooklyn nearby their home all the time. But when they moved out of Brooklyn, the florist was so sad about them leaving, she even cried. They were THAT close to their florist- so now you can see clearly see how awesome these two are. So when they called her to do the flowers for the wedding– she was thrilled! And boy did she create some gorgeous bouquets and decor! The best part too, is that when I met the florist, Kana (http://saffron-brooklyn.com/) … I realized we KNEW each other and went to Laguardia (WOOT!) High School together!! What a small world!
Again, I really enjoyed every moment of this wedding day. Their families were both so awesome, funny and we shared some interesting moments together in the limo. I was so happy to be a part of their big day and thankful they wanted me to document it for them! Here are some of my favorite shots of the day:
