This past weekend, I had the most AMAZING time getting to know Danielle and Justin and all about their love story during their engagement session. Flying all the way up from Austin, TX, we met at one of the most iconic neighborhoods — Greenwich Village — with the plan of making it up to Central Park to end the day with a red bang
Not gonna lie, going into Kelly and Mike's engagement session, I didn't know what to expect. Unlike my ridiculously long wedding inquiry form (which you see for yourself here), my session form is super short and to the point. That means, I don't really get to know the people who inquire until we actually meet, making meeting everyone all the more fun!
With the coming of the new year and end of the busy wedding season comes lots of emotions, but most of all satisfaction. There's no other way to say it: 2017 was the year of badass weddings and couples. Thank you to all of the amazing people who trusted me to photograph their love and memorialize the best day of their lives.
Normally, when one thinks of New Yorkers, the image of a person living in the concrete jungle, running their finance firm in Wall Street, donning a sleek look and fresh Italian brewed coffee in hand comes up. One thinks, they must hate nature and everything about it. Well, apparently not Chaz and Grant! They made all of their NYC inhabitants (including me) drive five hours way from the comforts of home to right smack in the middle of nowhere.
Sometimes, getting away from the hustle and bustle of the big city is needed. That's why I was so ecstatic when Jessica and Ricardo inquired for their wedding being held at The Vineyards at Aquebogue. Wine, Long Island, and a day full of love? YES PLEASE. The weather couldn't have been more perfect for this beautiful celebration.
Calling all you lovers of color — GO VISIT FITZ NOW. No, seriously. When Yan, James, and I walked up the five sets of stairs in one of the hottest, tallest staircases known to man (we almost died) it was so worth it. What greeted us was the most vibrant, colorful rooftop you could find in Brooklyn. Sitting atop the amazing and hip Fitzcarraldo was a burst of happiness and the perfect backdrop to the sweetest relationship!
Traveling between two home bases has it's perks, but it usually means I sometimes don't get to officially meet my bride and grooms before there wedding day. Walking into the Lake House Inn nestled in the gorgeous state of Pennsylvania, I had no I idea who or what I would find. When you first pull into their lot, you don't see much. A beautiful stone, cottage-style building greets surrounded by huge pine and oak trees greet you...
