One of the best perks about being a wedding photographer is that you get to meet incredible couples and if you are lucky, they will continue to ask you to document the milestones in their lives. I'm so excited and honored to capture Dani & Will's maternity session in Prospect Park. I photographed their engagement session over 4 years ago and so thrilled to be part of the next journey in their lives, their path to parenthood. I cannot wait to meet their little guy once he arrives this Fall!
Rain was looming the morning of Colleen and Andrew's engagement session at Prospect Park in Brooklyn. I'm happy to say that we beat the rain (yay!) just in time and had so much fun exploring prospect park together before everyone else was awake. We visited the beautiful Prospect Park Boathouse and one of my favorite spots by the LeFrak Center at Lakeside, where all the turtles come out to sunbathe. It's adorable! Colleen and Andrew are the sweetest and so much fun to be around. I absolutely loved getting a chance to spend time with them before their wedding at Brooklyn Winery this Fall. It's going to be so romantic - I cannot wait! Here are some of my favorite images from their gorgeously green engagement session. 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
Nkiru and Richie's Summer wedding at the Prospect Park Boathouse was a truly joyous celebration! The couple planned their wedding from a far as they lived in Hong Kong prior to their wedding. So for them, and most of their guests, it was a destination wedding in Brooklyn. Nkiru looked radiant in her wedding dress adorned with applique flowers and crystal details. The bride used accents of coral (her favorite color) and cobalt blue to decorate their stunning wedding. Nkiru even designed the coral lace bridesmaids dresses which were custom made in Hong Kong. The couple shared their first look in Brooklyn Heights before heading over to St. Nicholas Church in Boerum Hill.
As an Eastern Orthodox ceremony, the couple exchanges their rings at the entrance of the church before walking down the aisle together. As they walked around the altar seven times, the couple wore handmade wedding wreaths from Richie's mother. A true family heirloom to be passed down to the next generation. After the ceremony, guest cooled off on the back patio of the boathouse sipping signature cocktails as we took portraits inside of Prospect Park. Once the speeches were wrapped, dinner was served and the cake was cut, guests danced under the moonlight and enjoyed the Summer night sky. I'm so honored I was able to photograph and capture Nkiru and Richie's gorgeous wedding day. Congratulations Newlyweds!

A few years ago, Kaleigh & Josh met at a friends wedding and after talking, they realized that they grew up in neighboring towns, went to adjacent schools and even shared a few friends in common but had never met until that very moment. Fate had taken it's time bringing them together and the timing couldn't have been more perfect. The happy couple has been together ever since. On their wedding day, Kaleigh and her bridesmaids got ready at the Wythe Hotel before Josh arrived for their first look. The bride wore a custom designed wedding dress that was simply gorgeous. Her favorite detail was the back!
Along with their families, Kaleigh and Josh stood under the floral chuppah at Congregation Beth Elohim and exchanged wedding vows before becoming husband and wife. Josh broke the glass and kissed his new bride! After the ceremony, guests were transported to the gorgeous Prospect Park Picnic House to celebrate and dance the night away. Their modern wedding was decorated and coordinated by SPINA who truly helped bring their classic and romantic vision to life. I'm so honored I was able to be there and capture their wonderful wedding day. Congratulations Kaleigh and Josh!
