What happens when you wake up super early and head to Brooklyn Bridge Park on a Sunday? You get the place all to yourself! I'm so excited to share a few of my favorite images from Kate and Zach's sun drenched brooklyn bridge park engagement session. We had perfect blue skies and an abundance of light pouring down on us which help create these timeless photos. Kate and Zach made each other laugh and smile the entire time and I cannot wait to see them again in the Fall for their wedding at their families private estate. It's going to be stunning! xo
Early in November, I met up with Nadia and Tim in Brooklyn at the always gorgeous Prospect Park for their engagement photos. It was so much fun getting to know these two a bit before their wedding day at iCi Restaurant in Fort Greene. I'm so delighted to share a few of my favorite images from their engagement session. Enjoy!
Prospect Park is one of my favorite places to take photographs. It's not as crowded as Central Park and it has lots of special spots that are perfect for engagement sessions. I was thrilled when Christianna and Brian chose Prospect Park for their engagement photos. It's a meaningful location to the bride-to-be as her parents grew up in Brooklyn and visited the park daily. She wanted to surprise her family with the photos but ran into her Aunt and Uncle during their session - whoops! Excited to share a few of my favorite photos and can't' wait for their wedding at the Montauk Yacht Club in the Spring. Enjoy! xo
On a perfect Summer day, I met up with Natasha and Aneil to capture their engagement session on New York City's Highline and Meatpacking District. The bright blue skies and cool breeze made an August day in the city enjoyable. As we strolled through the highline, tourists and travelers wished them congratulations throughout our walk down the highline which was so much fun! I'm excited to share a few of my favorite engagement photos and I can't wait for their wedding this Fall at the Essex House in Manhattan. Enjoy! xo
Wandering the beautiful streets of Brooklyn Heights you can get lost among its beauty. The iconic neighborhood is filled with timeless brownstones, historic carriage houses and enough charm to last a lifetime. It was the perfect location for Meg and Charles spring engagement session. This timeless couple loves to travel and enjoy the sweeter things in life together. They met through mutual friends at a concert and have been together ever since. Charles is wearing is "Nantucket Reds" in honor of their favorite island, Nantucket, which is where the happy couple is getting married later this year! I cannot wait to be part of their wedding day and thrilled to share a few of my favorite photos from their brooklyn engagement session. Enjoy!
I have to admit that I love getting mail. Yes, that's right, old school snail mail is really the best in my book! I love thank you notes, paper invitations and a receiving a handwritten letters makes my heart skip a beat. So when I came home and there was a package waiting for me from The Knot, I knew good things were in store. I'm so honored to have two of my amazing couples featured in the latest edition of The Knot Magazine's New York Fall/Winter 2014 Edition.
Maureen & Hank's Hamptons Fall wedding is featured in an incredible three page layout (p. 130) and Adrienne & Steve were interviewed for their Love Stories article (p.66). I'm so excited for each of my couples and thrilled they are featured in the latest edition. It was so wonderful to work with so many great vendors who helped make their wedding day such a magical affair. The magazine will be on stands soon but here's a look inside the pages of the magazine. Be sure to pick up a copy & enjoy their wonderful wedding inspiration! Hooray!!
Adrienne and Steve Greenpoint Brooklyn Engagement Session was featured in Love Stories.
A few months ago, I was asked to be part of and photograph a bridal shower inspiration shoot at 91 Horatio in New York City. I absolutely love being able to collaborate with super talented wedding vendors to create something fresh and new to help inspire brides for their wedding day. Lindsey and Leah dreamt up a gorgeous mixture of red, blush and mint to create a different take on bridal shower design. I'm super excited to share a few of my favorite photos on the blog. Enjoy! xo, Jainé
The clouds parted just in time to let the sun peek through for Ashley & Jon's engagement session at Brooklyn Bridge Park where for a few minutes, we had the pier all to ourselves. Not a tourist in site! Ashley's gorgeous red eyelet dress brings a vibrant pop of color to the overcast palette of the day. The love shared between Ashley & Jon shines through in each and every photo. I am thrilled to be photographing their wedding at 501 Union and honored to be part of their love story! xo
