I am so happy Jordan and Marti contacted me to capture their engagement session! When they asked me if we could do their session on a snowy day in Central Park, I was so excited! I have been in New York for almost 5 years and this was the first time anyone ever wanted to get out in the snow with me, hooray! Although it was freezing and we were so cold, there was hardly anyone in the Park which never happens and it was such a perfect morning for a session. I loved getting the chance to capture these two lovebirds, they are total sweethearts and perfect for each other. Here are some of my favorites from their morning session.
Baby Showers are always such a blast to capture, and who doesn’t love a surprise baby shower! Melissa’s team at Project Nursery and co-founder partner Pam got together and decided to throw a fabulous surprise shower for Melissa! With the help of Natasha Lawler from Minted, Ara from Rock Paper Scissors and Christina Lozito’s gorgeous floral designs, the event was absolutely beautiful and perfect for the mom-to-be! Guests enjoyed lots of delicious food and iced tea while over looking Manhattan at the top of the Soho Mondrian! Magnetic boards were passed around for everyone to design a “dream nursery” for Melissa, what a fun shower game! Even Rosie Pope, a friend of Project Nursery and mother herself shared some fabulous motherhood tips, and before each guest left the shower they were given a fabulous diaper bag from Skip Hop filled with goods from Amazon and Minted. Here are some of my favorites from the baby shower, and be sure to check out the feature on Project Nursery!
Adam and Lesley have two of the most loving hearts. They are both from the Midwest and luckily they were both volunteering for the same organization they adore in New York City when they met. It wasn’t long after their first initial meeting that they both knew there was something special between them. Whenever their parents would come to visit them in the city, their families would stay at The Bowery Hotel and in fact their parents met for the first time there. So when Adam proposed to Lesley, The Bowery Hotel seemed like the perfect fit their wedding day! Lesley stunned Adam in a gorgeous blush Vera Wang gown, and they did such a fantastic job at merging their classical and modern city styles into one fabulous celebration. You might remember their sweet engagement session, and I love how we went to Billy’s Bakery for their session and again on the wedding day, their favorite dessert place in the city! This might be one of my favorite weddings ever. Be sure to check out the feature on Style Me Pretty as well.

There is something so beautiful about watching your friends become parents, it’s such an amazing experience. I have known Daniel since High School and somehow we both ended up in the same city. A few years ago he met his stunning wife Colleen whom I adore and it feels like just yesterday they announced “a baby makes three.” I was so thrilled to hear the news they were expecting and they were going to be parents. Once Charlotte (Charley) arrived they asked me to capture Charley’s first portrait session and I was beyond honored. Seeing these two with their precious little lady was so fun and I loved photographing her first session. Isn’t she precious! I know Daniel and Colleen are such amazing parents and I can’t wait to watch Charley grow up. Here are some of my favorites from their morning session.
The first time I met Lindsay we sat at the coffee house and talked for almost two hours. It never felt like a meeting, we had such a great time and I knew right off the bat I loved this couple already. I didn’t get a chance to meet Billy until the day of the engagement session and my love for these two grew even stronger, how cute are they!. We had amazing light, the beauty of Central Park, and a great little spot that was perfect for seeing their Venue sign “Essex House”. I truly can’t wait to capture their big day in September, but for now, here are some of my favorites from their afternoon session.
I am so thrilled to see Adam and Lesley’s gorgeous Bowery Hotel Wedding and Marissa and Oliver’s Glasshouses Wedding featured on Style Me Pretty! Plus it’s so exciting to see this lovely Ombre + Chambre Inspiration Shoot featured on Style Me Pretty as well. More to come featuring these events, but for now, check out the links and thank you again Style Me Pretty.
I am so excited to share this fun engagement session with you because I just adore Collin and Sara! We had such a fun afternoon and still to this day I remember the most magical sunset I have ever seen in New York. It was truly stunning! Collin and Sara are just adorable with each other and truly make each other laugh. We talked about all the locations where to capture their engagement portraits and at the end of the day they mostly wanted some iconic New York spots. What’s more perfect than starting out at the Plaza Hotel, on to Columbus Circle, and lastly heading into Central Park for a lovely sunset. Central Park Engagement Portraits are so much fun, and I love getting to know my sweet couples through their sessions. I can’t wait to share their gorgeous wedding day at Alder Manor with you. Here are some of my favorites from the afternoon with Collin and Sara, and how perfect was this magical light!
I am a little behind on blogging but I truly love this beautiful wedding, it will always be one of my favorites. While the whole entire North East was under feet of snow, Carrie and Abe were having the perfect wedding weekend in Siesta Key Florida! In case you missed it they had a really fun BBQ Pig Roast to kick off the wedding weekend. Who doesn’t love to go to a wedding on the beach, and their wedding venue was to die for. I am truly so happy for these two and I am so honored I was able to capture their wedding weekend.
Venue: Powel Crosley Estate | Caterer: Simply Gourmet | Hair Stylist: Janelle Heureaux | Makeup: Carrie LaMarca Makeup, the bride herself | Bakery: Publix | Music: Clint Wiley and the None Others | Flowers: Elegant Designs | Wedding Dress: Nicole Miller | Transportation: All Aboard Charters
Abe and Carrie’s rehearsal dinner was simply perfect! A low key BBQ Pig Roast right on the beach, a great idea for welcoming all their guests to Siesta Key for their big weekend. They had activities planned for the whole weekend and all their guests had a blast at the Pub Crawl, the welcome dinner, and enjoying all the sunshine before the big day. Here are some of my favorites from their fun welcome party. Stay tuned for my favorites from their wedding day at Powel Crosley Estate.
I love traveling and I love engagement sessions so what’s more fun than an afternoon on a beautiful Tennessee farm with Katie and Chris! They are getting married next May and I can’t wait to capture their beautiful southern affair. We decided to do their engagement session at the same location as their wedding and it was so perfect. Asbury Farm has acres of trees and haybells, a beautiful southern farmhouse and an old tire swing. These two are so adorable and I love that they wanted to take photos in their jeans and t-shirts towards the end of their session. They said, “this is us and we want that part of our relationship captured.” How cute is that! Here are some of my favorites from the afternoon with Katie and Chris.
