I had a great time hanging out with Joanne and Sebastian and shooting some engagement photos with them! The beautiful lake setting is actually where they will be getting married later this year. I also loved meeting their adorable and super high-energy dog, Annabel:)

Jarcin and Charles were married in a gorgeous and intimate ceremony at Linden Terrace in Fort Tryon Park, NYC, with a lovely reception at New Leaf Restaurant. The weather was perfect and I had such an amazing time with them! I especially loved all of the personal details they incorporated into their day, like the favors — green tea buns in origami boxes that Jarcin made herself:)They were delicious!!

Becca & Steve – Long Island, NY – Engaged

engaged couple at beach - portrait

I had such a good time with Becca and Steve on their engagement shoot! Becca’s bridal shower was the same day, so we started off our session in the gorgeous backyard of her childhood home and then headed to Hobart Beach Park for some fun beach shots. Luckily, the weather was beautiful! After our shoot, I stayed for Becca’s bridal shower and grabbed some detail shots of the decor (I am obsessed with the hydrangea centerpiece!) and, of course, the cupcakes:)

I had a fabulous time shooting my cousin Carlyn and Steve’s engagement photos! It was my first time at Yankee Stadium, and while it was definitely a cool experience for me, I know that these two were having a blast seeing all of the Yankee memorabilia and visiting the dugout and locker room.
