September light just might be my favorite light in New York City. The day lasts forever and the light is golden till dusk. I was so excited to photograph Sammie and Tomer for their engagement photos in Battery Park City last Fall. I haven't spent a lot of time downtown so it was fun to explore a different part of the city with one of my favorite engaged couples. Sammie and Tomer are just perfect for each other. They finish each other's sentences, laugh for days and smile from ear to ear when they are with one another. Their love is truly palpable! We took full advantage of the waterfront views along the park and even found a quiet nook to sneak in some dreamy portraits. I am so excited for their wedding at Brooklyn Winery this Spring. It's going to be so much fun!
What happens when you visit Central Park early in the morning on a gorgeous Summer day? You practically get the place all to yourself! Crystal and Thomas travel to New York once a year and wanted to incorporate their favorite city into their engagement session. We walked through the park astounded by its beauty and the quiet. The lack of crowds really gave us room to explore and play in the park. How adorable is Crystal's pride and prejudice clutch? Love! It was such a treat photographing this sweet couple for their engagement photos and thrilled to be part of their New York love story. Congratulations Crystal and Thomas!
One night during a cocktail party at a mutual friends house, Peter was introduced to Esther. He was head over heels with Esther. After a few weeks of getting to know one another, photos began to appear on facebook of them together. So, it was official, they were a couple! For their engagement session, we visited New York City's iconic West Village before heading up to Central Park. Even though it was a crowded summer morning, we managed to find a few hidden spots all to ourselves. I love capturing the sweet in-between moments these two share, a single glance, a small smile and all the happiness that shines through. Oh, and I absolutely love Esther's impeccable style which is why she works in the fashion industry. Wait till you see her custom designed wedding dress!
Luminous light, pops of pink and the sweetest couple make for a gorgeous engagement session in new york city. We visited the Conservatory Gardens at Central Park on one of the last great days of the Summer. The lawns were a lush green and the flowers were in full bloom. Claire & Adam visited the gardens on one of their very first dates so it was special and meaningful location for their engagement session. They are one of the sweetest, kindest and most thoughtful couples I have the pleasure of working with and I'm so excited for their vineyard wedding next year! Enjoy!!
A few months ago, I met CJ at a wedding industry event and we've become good friends. We share a love for photography (she's a wedding photographer too!), good food and lots of laughing. When CJ asked if I would be interested in photographing her engagement session, I jumped at the opportunity to photograph my friend and her sweet (and handsome!) fiancé. Adrien is a French native so the happy couple wanted to incorporate parts of his culture throughout their engagement session. We visited Fort Tyron Park on the most gorgeous sunny afternoon in New York City. Sometimes, you just get lucky with a perfect day, amazing couple and you make photo magic. This was one of those days! CJ brought along her favorite vintage camera, wore a super fun tulle skirt while Adrien wore a stripped shirt before changing into their casual picnic outfits. I simply adore CJ & Adrien!! I'm so honored I could be part of their engagement and capture their happiness for many years to come. Aren't they the sweetest? Felicitations & Merci Beaucoup!
Gingham, cute cafés and gorgeous light make this one of my favorite engagement sessions. Vy & Mike wanted to take photos in their home before visiting a few of their favorite restaurants and cafés in west village. We had coffee at Café Minerva, laughed in front of Joseph Leonard and enjoyed a seat in front of Jeffery's Grocery. Seriously, the September sun is just absolutely gorgeous and I could resist having the couple completely drenched in dreamy light as we walked to each location. So dreamy - Enjoy!
