This post is long overdue but in honor of Drew and Kim’s wedding month, I thought it was perfect timing to post their fun Manhattan Engagement Session. Drew and Kim both grew up in Vero Beach Florida and met during High School. A few years later they both landed jobs in New York City and re-connected as friends. After hanging out a few times and sharing a New Year’s kiss, the two became inseparable and began dating. After 5 years of living in the city the two lovebirds decided to move back to Vero Beach to be closer to family and friends. In 2013 Drew decided to surprise Kim and pop the question in the middle of a parking lot and Kim said “YES”!
I met Kim through a mutual friend just shortly before she moved back to Florida. We connected through Photography because Kim was in the midst of starting her own photography career, she is one talented lady and I am so proud of her. Months later I randomly ran into her shortly after her engagement while I was a crazy woman about to buy Spanx the week before my own wedding at Bloomingdales, ha I know, and I told Kim to email me that I would love to stay in touch even though she moved back home to Florida. Kim did email me and I was so honored when she did, she and Drew were planning a weekend trip to New York and she asked me to capture their engagement session in the city. I was so thrilled to work with these two and I was even more honored when I found out we were going to be working together on their wedding day. Kim and Drew are so adorable together, completely all smiles and honestly made me tear up they are so cute! We met at Spritzers in the Lower East Side since this was a regular place they loved to go to while they lived in the city, next we headed to the Financial District where Drew used to live, and we finished near Battery Park City with the skyline lights beautifully lit for the final photos. I can’t wait to capture their wedding day in two weeks at the Quail Valley River Club. It’s going to be a gorgeous day for such a sweet couple!
