I photographed these beautiful twins a few weeks ago and I could have taken them home. Oh they were just the sweetest. It was a super hot day but they really could not have been sweeter or more cooperative. They lasted over in hour! Modeling is in the genes :) I would know, I had the pleasure of shooting their beautiful parents' wedding!
I've received several emails about Kate's one shoulder dress since posting their preview about a week ago. I couldn't believe how many people had contacted me needing to know who made Kate's dress. Kate and Brett are enjoying a honeymoon in France right now so I couldn't possibly bother them to ask! But Kate, if you're reading this, I'm sure there are many bride's out there who would love to know in the comments section :)
This wedding took place at Le Meridian Hotel. They are in their first wedding season and the venue is just gorgeous. It is brand new and the bridal suite was beautifully decorated, modern and bright. Everyone really enjoyed the location, so close to City Hall. Kate and Brett had their first look downstairs in the lobby and then we went out to Washington Square and an alley nearby. Kate and Brett, you make such a handsome couple and I really enjoyed working with you and photographing your beautiful day.
Brett's father had prepared a really sweet slideshow to show at the reception with pictures of Brett and Kate through the years. It was a really nice personal touch and gift to the couple. By the end of the evening, Kate's father was serenading the crowd with his rendition of Elvis' The Wonder of You. The crowd, and especially Kate, was loving it! It was sweet to watch her watching him sing. I could tell it really meant a lot to her.
Alison and Jesse's session was at the end of a busy weekend full with a wedding and a portrait session prior to their shoot. There was a storm in the forecast and things just looked grey as I looked out my window wondering if the shoot would actually happen. Alison took the lead and confirmed that they would still like to meet so I headed up to Central Park. The moment we walked into the park the most beautiful light broke through and I got the chance to make some of my favorite engagement images thus far. I couldn't have been happier with the way the evening went. Thank you Alison and Jesse for having the clairvoyance to see past the clouds!
I've lost count of how many engagement sessions I've had in the last two weeks and I've also lost count of how many times we had to reschedule this one with Mona and Rishi. I was looking forward to it having shot their engagement party this past winter but the rain would just not give up. We finally got together last week and I was so glad. They are such a sweet couple and were great sports in spite of the heat...and it was HOT. Thanks guys, it was fun seeing you in the city this time!
I had the opportunity to revisit Asbury Park last week, the site of one of my favorite engagement sessions of last year. It was as good as I remembered and I found a few new spots with Kara and Nick. Kara and Nick are such a handsome couple. Nick is always making Kara laugh and she has a beautiful, carefree smile. I can't believe their wedding is in less than two weeks! Can't wait to be on the beach again :)
