Laurie and Matt wanted to do their engagement session at some of their favorite local spots in Prospect Park & Park Slope Brooklyn. We spent some time at Prospect Park, then maneuvered our way over to one of Laurie's favorite bars. It's always so great to be able to go to more comfortable spots and capture people at places where they feel the most at home. I’m so thankful I am able to be their New york city wedding photographer and I will be photographing their wedding at the Green Building in Brooklyn in a couple of months! Here are some of my favorite shots from the session:
What a delight it was to photograph this wedding! Not only was Blue Hill At Stone Barns amazingly gorgeous, boasts some of the best cuisine in the world, had animals all over to touch and hug... but the bride also wielded a FULL vegetable-made bouquet (with a hint of baby pineapples!) !! It was a warm day in July, but the ceremony was beautiful and we got to visit so many spots on the farm- including the green house, the chicken coop (where we got to hold and hug chickens!!) and hang with the sheep in the field! It was an awesome day and we ended it with an afterparty at Birds and Bubbles on the Lower East side for some more delicious grub.
Nancy and Sung are sooo great to me! For their engagement session, they totally let me be creative and allowed me to 'do my thing' during our session. It was so much fun! The weather was beautiful in New York City that day! We walked around Brooklyn Bridge Park, read some books about NYC, found some odd alleyways, drank a few cups of coffee and then found random props from the street- all in one session! Nancy is originally from San Francisco, and Sung Jin is from New York City and we were able to get photos of these cute books that are a nod to their native city. The photos really came out great and I am so excited to be a part of their wedding in San Francisco in October! Another great day as a new york city wedding photographer!
Claudia and Brendan are planning to have their wedding in Amsterdam, so it seemed only fitting to get a couple of shots over by Amsterdam Ave on the Upper West in New York City! We took a stroll over to their running path near Central Park West, hit the spot where Brendan proposed to Claudia.. and then walked a little bit more around their neighborhood. It was a really great, casual and fun shoot with them! I love being able to photograph engagement session in New York City!! Also, working with such fun and laid back people were amazing. They were such naturals!!
