Seriously, guests were greeted with delicious popsicles.

A couple who loves photography + a kickass sculpture garden + sunset over the Manhattan skyline = I love my job. No seriously. Love. And my couples. Love. Love. Love.
Jessica and Robin were up for anything, which meant dancing amongst cool art sculptures, laughing along stone walkways and climbing through a railing that begged to be crossed to get to the rocky shore of the East River below. All during that beautifully lit time just before (and after) sunset. I can’t thank these two enough for trusting my vision and having fun all along the way! Now to just wait until November for their wedding!
They couldn’t have planned it better if they had tried! Just a day after the Supreme Court handed down the decision for marriage equality across the country, Deborah and Adriane wed at Cop Cot in Central Park surrounded by their closest friends and family members. Amidst the laughter and tears, champagne and bubbles, the beautiful brides exchanged rings and keys to each other’s heart. It was the fairytale Deborah had always hoped for because in the end, love truly does win…
It’s hard to find the words to describe Tori and Ryan’s gorgeous wedding! Every detail was impeccably thought out and beautiful and this couple got to pledge their love surrounded by so much love neither of them stopped smiling all day. Even when buttons were popping off of suit jackets and the rain threatened, both Tori and Ryan had such a calmness to them. Nothing else mattered except they were getting to say ” I Do.” And nothing is more important than that! I’ll let the photos tell the rest :)
Amongst all of the beautiful details Laura handcrafted for her and Matt’s rustic chic wedding, including hand-strung pearl and crystal bouquets that she spent tireless hours creating, the most gorgeous detail of the day was the love these two share. It was reflected in their eyes as they looked at each other for the first time that day, in the excitement as they exchanged vows, in their laughter as they were showered with confetti on their way back down the aisle as husband and wife. It continued to shine throughout the night as they danced and celebrated with their closest family and friends. I could think of no better a couple to start off the wedding season with…congrats Laura and Matt!!!!
Lisa and Tom are the sort couple you want to be friends with – caring, fun and laidback. Add in their adorable pup, Charlee, and they are quite the family! While Lisa insists Charlee was the star of our recent engagement session around Jersey City, I like to think her sweet and courageous character comes from the love her humans share with her and each other! And if that isn’t enough, there’s a giant balloon too :)
If there is one thing I took away from my recent engagement session with Sarah and Gerald it was this – they are one of the happiest, most in-love couples I’ve had the pleasure of working with! They may also be one of the coolest, Sarah shapes young minds everyday out in Brooklyn while Gerald works at one of my dream companies, Etsy. They were fabulous to work with, full of smiles and laughter that makes my job all the easier :) I can not wait for their wedding this July!!! But for now, I’ll leave you to pour over our session around Jersey City, including Liberty State Park and drinks at one of my favorite spots in Downtown JC, Satis…
