Dennis and PatsyLong Beach Engagement Session

Dennis and Patsy are getting married in October at the Bourne Mansion and I truly can’t wait! I am a bit behind on updating the blog, ok way behind, and there is so much goodness to share from this year including this fun Long Beach Summer session. When Dennis and Patsy said they wanted to do a Long Beach Engagement Session I was so thrilled. Dennis has a summer home there and they have spent a lot of time there in the summers during their relationship so it was a perfect setting for these two. And plus who doesn’t love a gorgeous beach afternoon. The light was absolutely incredible and I love that they wanted a few photos with their pup as well. We had such a blast hopping around the beach and whatever I suggested they were totally up for, it made everything so fun and in the end we got some of my favorite engagement photos ever. I am so excited to see these two in a few weeks, but for now here are some of my favorites from their beautiful session.

Scott and WendyWeeburn Beach Club WeddingNorwalk, Connecticut

I absolutely loved working with these two, you might remember their adorable New York City Engagement Session here, they both have such amazing smiles right! When Scott and Wendy see eachother they literally glow and light up with such joy, it is absolutely adorable to capture! Scott and Wendy got married at the Weeburn Beach Club in Norwalk and what a gorgeous setting, right on the water with the most perfect sunset! This wedding was elegant, classic, and beautiful all around, and I loved Wendy’s gorgeous all white Calla Lilly bouquet designed by Elegant Floral Effects. Wendy was such a radiant bride in her beautiful Alvina Valenta bridal gown, she was completely glowing the entire day. There was so much love and joy at this wedding, it was truly special to photograph these two and be there for their special day. Here are some of my favorites from this joyful celebration!

Joe and AlyssaA Wedding at Gurney’sMontauk, New York

I love hearing my client’s love stories, and Joe and Alyssa have a long history together. Believe it or not, they met during Middle School, and went to High School together, how cute is that! After years of being just friends, they found themselves at the same exact party one night during a summer break in college. Even though they were only 18 years old, they knew they made a pretty awesome match together. It became a summer of love, these two lovebirds became inseparable! After 5 years together, Joe proposed to Alyssa on the dock of their hometown in Northport, while all their family and friends were just a street away waiting to surprise them!

Planning their wedding they most importantly wanted to be surrounded by all their favorite people in the world, and they picked a fun, beautiful destination for the celebration, Gurney’s in Montauk! It was the perfect November wedding surround by so much love and laughter, seriously these two are adorable together. I am so happy for them and I am thrilled to share my favorites from their big day.

A Brooklyn Baby ShowerTwins for TaliBrooklyn, New York

Twins for Tali! When Minted asked me to capture a Brooklyn baby shower for a special mom-to-be having twins I was beyond thrilled! Who doesn’t love beautiful baby showers, and Ara from Rock Paper Scissors Events always does a great job styling the events. The baby shower was hosted by Rebecca Minkoff, Nate Berkus, Athena Calderone and Jeremiah Brent, and let’s not forget all the beautiful paper products, stationary, notebooks, photo booth backdrop, straws, banners and more, are all some of Minted’s fabulous decor products. Amy from Sugar Flower Cake Shop is so talented and created a gorgeous custom cake to match perfectly with the Minted invitations. The lovely flower arrangements were created by Petal by Pedal, aren’t they sweet! It was the perfect baby shower at the VII Gallery in Dumbo for the cutest mom-to-be! It’s such a joy to capture so much love for little ones. Congrats to Tali on the birth of her beautiful baby girls!

Esme and LoganNew York Family Session

Being a New York family photographer is such an honor, I can’t count the number of babies I get to hold and meet, and the number of little toes and hands I get to hold when they are just a few weeks old. It’s so special! I first met Carla and Charlie when Logan was just six months old, he was so tiny! I honestly can’t believe he has grown up so much since then! Every year I get the opportunity to capture their sweet family for Christmas cards, family portraits, you name it and it’s always such a blast! You might remember one of my favorite portrait sessions with them was featured on “On to baby“, he was only about a year old at that time. Then this March Esme made 4! Carla and Logan gave birth to a beautiful daughter Esme and Logan became a big brother, hooray! When Carla asked me to capture Esme’s newborn session and a few portraits of Logan with Esme, I was so honored to photograph their brand new little lady. Isn’t she precious! I truly love photographing families and especially little ones, and it’s really hard not to have baby fever when you see a face like this. Here are some of my favorites from their New York family portrait session.

Oliver and MarissaGlasshouses WeddingNew York, New York

Oliver and Marissa met during their first week at NYU as college freshman. During their Junior year at NYU they became more than friends and after 6 years together, Oliver popped the question and asked Marissa to marry him with the most beautiful diamond ring! Marissa is from Texas and Oliver is from Germany, and after spending so many years in New York together they felt like New York City was the perfect location to have a wedding. Their wedding day was every bit of stunning, from the glam style, to her Monique Lhuillier gown, down to the vibrant colors she used on everything, it was just truly beautiful. Marissa adores flowers, an obsession that started with her great-grandmother and she chose the most gorgeous flowers for the big day, all the arrangements were just perfection by Rountree Flowers. Since Oliver and Marissa spent most of their dating life trying out new restaurants, and since Oliver is a big foodie, they decided on a 4-course menu from Blue Hill, everyone raved about the delicious food and you can never go wrong with anything from Blue Hill. This was truly one of my favorite weddings from last year, overall it was such a beauty and designed to the T by Loli Events! Here are some of my favorites from their wedding day!
