Fall is definitely one of my favorite times of the year. I love the changing colors of the leaves, you get to wear sweaters and the light is absolutely the prettiest in New York City. I was so happy when Sue and Chris wanted to take their engagement photos in the beginning of September. We took full advantage of the empty streets and a quiet Central Park early in the morning. The American Museum of Natural History was the perfect location to begin their session because it's the exact spot where Chris got down on one knee and proposed to Sue. So sweet!! I'm thrilled to share a few of my favorite engagement photos from their session and I cannot wait for their wedding next year Brooklyn Botantic Garden. Enjoy! xo
Spring in New York City is one of my favorite times of the year. Everything is finally back in bloom, the city is full with flowers and of course, happy couples about to get married. The West Village has so many hidden nooks and streets untraveled which was perfect for Catherine and Rob's engagement session. We got lost wandering the streets in Manhattan before making our way down to the west side piers to steal a few kisses along the water. I cannot wait for their wedding later this year at the Montauk Yacht Club. Enjoy!!
Is there anything more romantic than walking through Central Park with your soon-to-be husband around sunset? I didn't think so! Alice and Mike's Fall Engagement Session in the park is absolutely picture perfect. We met along the 86th street entrance and made our way into the park's Great Lawn just in time for the golden light to sweep across the grass. I'm so excited to share a few of my favorite photos from their classic new york city engagement session and can't wait for their wedding later this year. Enjoy! xo
Laura and Reeve's relationship spans over the course of a decade. They have literally grown up together and on a wonderfully warm day in September, they became husband and wife. Their Fall wedding was held at the Lighthouse at Chelsea Piers in New York City. Laura instantly fell in love with her stunning lace Ines Di Santo wedding dress. Her mother handmade a gorgeous lace trimmed veil as a gift to her beloved daughter on her wedding day. The bride also carried her mother's vintage clutch and wore her "something-new" gold Jimmy Choo shoes. Reeve waited patiently at the end of the aisle for his bride to enter the iconic catholic cathedral in SoHo.
As the happy couple exchanged vows, then rings, the church roared with cheers once they pronounced husband and wife! After the ceremony, the light at the Chelsea Piers park was simply breathtaking as we took their formal and bridal party portraits along the water. The couple treated their guests to a boat cruise around the city before heading over to the Lighthouse to start their wedding celebration. As they clinked their champagne flutes, laughed at speeches and danced with their parents, guests were treated to music by the fantastic Hank Lane. So, how do you end a perfect day marrying the man of your dreams? How about your own private fireworks show along the Hudson River. It was simply spectacular! I'm so honored I could be part of Laura and Reeve's wedding day and capture their memories to cherish and love forever. Congratulations Newlyweds!
