Sarah and Mike were married earlier this month in New York City. Their venue had the most incredible view of the Empire State Building. Although the rain moved most of the festivities inside, the guests still enjoyed the view at night through the many windows surrounding the loft.
Both Sarah and Mike have a very kind and gentle personality. They are the perfect fit for one another. I could see the love and support they had for one another from the few times I had met with them before the wedding. Sarah was so happy in the moments leading up to the ceremony and seeing Mike. I think she said "Yay" 100 times that day, her excitement was overflowing.
Sarah and Mike, thank you for the opportunity to capture such an important day in your lives!
(Thanks also to Melissa who captured the shot of Mike in his living room!)
These are from this past Saturday. I have a few other things to blog about but Alison wrote the cutest email which basically said since she wasn't going away on a honeymoon right away, she would be stalking my blog for a sneak peek from her wedding. I'm hoping this will buy me some time to edit the rest of her beautiful day!
Sorry Aaron, I haven't gotten John's shots yet so this is girls only.
We had such a great time on Sunday wandering around Lehigh's campus where Ronnie completed his undergrad. Julianne is actually a part of my family (my mother's cousin's daughter...so not sure what that makes her to me...basically just family I guess but I'll take it). It always adds an extra element to any kind of shoot when I already have a relationship with the couple. We had the most beautiful weather after a rainy Saturday and the fall colors were still so vivid this late in the month. I have to thank them for their thoughtfulness too. They took me for PUMPKIN GELATO at Dave's Deli after the shoot. I can't tell you how delicious it was and I had been waiting for just the right moment for it since October 1st. Thanks guys, I can't wait for your wedding next spring! I'm looking forward to all of the special and cultural details:)
Colleen and her family left such nice comments on the preview post of only 2 pictures, I had to post an extended version of their wedding here. I really enjoyed getting to know Colleen and her family throughout the day. Both she and Dave were so organized throughout the whole planning process and they were so excited when their wedding day had finally arrived. I had a number of phone calls with Colleen prior to her wedding not only about their details but also about my own wedding. She was so interested in my planning and always offered helpful advice and ideas which was so thoughtful. They should be back any day now from TWO WEEKS in ITALY (wow,jealous!). I hope you had an absolutely wonderful time on your honeymoon and welcome back!! Enjoy these moments from your day :)
Thanks also to my second shooter, Melissa, who took some of my favorite photos of Colleen in the back of the church and some of the first dance shots among others below!

I finished off my Sunday (last weekend) in Central Park with Jaime and Jessica. It gave me a little inspiration for my OWN engagement shoot which will also take place (or at least a part of it) in the park. I love all of the different looks you can get in the park. There is wonderful architecture to choose from in addition to the most "green" you can see anywhere in NYC. Jessica came prepared with some signs she had made to use in the photos for their sign-in book at their wedding. I think these turned out beautifully and the sun was at just the right place in the sky for some warm orange light.
Looking forward to seeing you guys in December!
