Highline Engagement Photos: New York City Engagement Photographer

Highline, Central Park, NYC Enagagement pictures-42Alisha and Geoff met while in college at the University of Cincinnati. Ali was throwing a party and Geoff showed up with a few of his friends. As drinking game festivities started to form, Ali and Geoff were paired off in a beer pong match they’ll never forget. They were inseparable through college and even though their careers took them through their fair share of long distance dating, they’ve been together for five years. They currently live in Jersey City with their adorable cat Lemon.
Full of smiles, we explored the Highline and Central Park in a whole new way. Spending time with these two was the perfect way to start off the morning last Saturday and I’m delighted to be sharing their session today!Highline, Central Park, NYC Enagagement pictures-15Highline, Central Park, NYC Enagagement pictures-14Highline, Central Park, NYC Enagagement pictures-9Highline, Central Park, NYC Enagagement pictures-17

Geoff was the king of rowing. He put up with both Ali and I as we were basically worthless going all over the pond in Central Park. He’s the best rower (is that a thing?) that I know!

Romantic Mexico Wedding: Destination Wedding Photographer

Secrets Maroma Beach Riviera Cancun Resort  Wedding; Mexico wedding, destination wedding, Resort weddings-78

This week I’ve been missing Mexico terribly. Today, I’d like to be transported back to those white sand beaches, the warm sun shining on my face, and the oh so perfect couple I had the honor of capturing on their wedding day. Maybe it was the abandoned mansion that made this wedding so romantic, or maybe it was just the fact that Danielle and Adam had a 5 day love fest with their closest friends and family at Secrets Maroma Beach Riviera Cancun Resort, but it was simply perfect. Thank you, Amy Rizzuto for inviting me to document such a special time, I couldn’t have imagined a better Mexico experience. More of this gorgeous couple can be seen on Amy’s blog post here.

Wythe Hotel and Prospect Park Picnic House Wedding : New York Wedding Photographer

Prospect Park Picnic House Wedding; New York Wedding Photographer-58

” I think I would’ve missed you even if I’d never met you” – The Wedding Date.

These two met at a mutual friend’s wedding in Florida. They were immediately drawn to one another and soon found out they were currently living in New York and actually grew up in the same area in Canada. Their wedding was beautiful. They got ready down the street from their home in Williamsburg at the Wythe Hotel. Their intimate wedding at the Congregation Beth Elohim was touching with hardly a dry eye in the temple.  Prospect Park Picnic House was the perfect place to host their reception and soak in all the memories of the day. It was such a pleasure to shoot with Jaine of Brklyn View Photography and capture all the beautiful moments of the happy couple, I wish them many years of love and happiness!

Fun Love at Robert Moses Beach: Phil and Hillary

There was nothing planned, except to enjoy the sun and the sand. This shoot was as spontaneous as they come. We had no schedule at all. It was just a few friends with one thing on our minds… the beach.

Since a beach day like this doesn’t come around very often I was able to persuade my friends Phil and Hillary into a mini beach shoot. They’re just dating but the last time I shot them was on the High Line in New York City and it was snowing. That little gem of a session is here, and quite a change of pace from our fun in the sun this weekend.

Phil and Hillary have known each other for years. Their families grew up together in Castine, Maine and it wasn’t until years later when they reconnected in New York City that they realized they had quite the spark. These two are always up for anything! Robert Moses beach was the perfect place to throw together an impromptu shoot capturing just how much fun they have when they’re around each other.

Phil and Hil thought the shoot was over… little did they know I was basically stalking them as we walked the boardwalk on our way to see the sun set.

As the sun set I realized the worst part of the day… it was over. Once the sun went down we walked back through the winding boardwalk path to the zip car awaiting its return to the city. We packed in the car and as our journey home began, fireworks started setting off in every direction. We could hardly contain our excitement, it was the perfect ending to a GREAT day.

Thank you Phil and Hillary for being so spontaneous and allowing me to photograph the both of you! It never gets old and I can’t wait for more!

 

 

Happy Memories for a Happy Father’s Day!

When I go home for the holidays I find myself disappearing into the attic. There in the darkness of a room filled with almost forgotten, dust collecting memories are precious treasures. Many times I’ll play dress up, trying on old prom dresses, partly because I want to see if they still fit and partly because I want to relive the experience. Once I embark on memory lane there’s no turning back and I eventually get to the thousands of pictures I have stored away. I start with my early college years, then to High school, middle school and of course baby pictures. However, when I was home this past Christmas break I stumbled upon my parents Wedding album. I’ve always loved weddings, but I wasn’t exactly sure I wanted to intrude on memories that weren’t mine and have since changed so drastically. Somehow, as I turned the pages through a 35 year old wedding album I couldn’t help but smile at the love that was once there and the love that is between a father and his daughter. I intrude on many brides on their wedding day, and have been fortunate enough to see moments like this picture of my mom on her wedding day as she gets ready to walk down the aisle with the man who loved her first. I look forward to the day where I’ll have the same picture with my dad. Happy Father’s day!

The Vineyards at Chappel Lodge Wedding : Anne + Bobby

The Vineyards at Chappel Lodge Wedding
Anne and Bobby met at church camp in Raleigh, NC in 2003. However, it wasn’t until 2009 when they realized they shared dreams for the future and a multi-tiered attraction to one another and began dating. Anne and Bobby decided to take tidbits from Christian couples they admired most from their community and make their vows into something they’ll remember forever.  Under the Austin oak trees at The Vineyards at Chappel Lodge, these two committed to each other to not only be husband and wife, but best friends.

I have been lucky enough to know Anne for 20 years. I couldn’t have asked for a better man for my childhood bestie to marry. I was not only honored by shooting her gorgeous Austin wedding, but I was a part of it as one of the maid of honors. I am so proud of my friend and the man she has chosen. They are two of the most sincere, giving, and loving people I have ever met. Anne’s heart has always been filled with a desire to share God’s love with others, so it makes sense she and Bobby are in the midst of putting a team together for full-time international mission work. I can’t imagine two better people for the job. The world is better because of Anne and Bobby, and I am so excited to see what they accomplish as husband and wife. Without further ado, it is my pleasure to share a little of Anne and Bobby’s Austin affair.

Central Park Wedding : Leandra + Derek

2014-05-21_0015
Swoooooon! Just swooooooon. Leandra and Derek are already married. In fact, come June they will have been married two years. They said their I do’s in Virginia, surrounded by their closest friends and family. Luckily, without too much convincing Leandra and Derek agreed to spend the late afternoon with me in their new neighborhood, Central Park. Hand and hand walking through the cherry blossom trees and dancing under the weeping willows their intimate Central Park wedding unfolded. So, swoon with me, because I just can’t help myself and neither will you. :)
