Katie & Amarveer wanted to do their engagement photos at the High Line in Chelsea, New York City. They wanted the rich urban vibes of the High Line and get some cool New York City street views as well. After those classic shots, they had a few of their best friends meet them at Washington Square Park and recreate some classic “Friends” NYC poses! (I figured it was perfect timing to blog this during the FRIENDS 25th anniversary year!!!) We took a little dip at the Washington Square Park water fountain (which yes, diehard fans, that’s not exactly where they filmed the opening of Friends BUT it SHOULD have been! LOL) and dancing with some NYC pigeons. O_O! It was a lot of fun working with them and their awesome group of friends and this was a engagement session/friend session to remember!
Tina & Carson met as undergraduates at NYU. Since then, they’ve traveled well, eaten well and have explored the world together. They’re a fun and sweet couple that love to laugh together and drink (they collected ALL the beer bottles for their center pieces themselves and even enlisted the help of all their friends to drink more to get more bottles leading up to the wedding day!!) They got ready together in the heart of Williamsburg, Brooklyn at a quaint airbnb a few blocks away from their ceremony space at the Brooklyn Winery. Tina’s taste is impeccable, Brooklyn Winery was a GORGEOUS space for the ceremony and reception. The Brooklyn Winery had EVERYTHING the couple wanted - rustic decor to vintage plate settings and perfectly cooked fried chicken! Tina’s Marchesa Notte wedding dress looked AMAZING on her and everything just felt perfect. It was wonderful time working with their squad and here are some of my favorite shots from the day!

Lin & Joey had their wedding at the Metropolitan Building in Long Island City. I absolutely LOVE this space and one of my favorite wedding venues in New York City! They film a lot of movies, fashion shoots, editorials and commercials in here! They have a ton of odd props and items all over. Not only did they have really cool props, the building itself had so much character to it. Lots of beautiful walls, odd windows that lead to nowhere, tons of mirrors, frames, chairs and antiques!! - it was really a photographer’s dream! I also loved that Lin and Joey allowed me to really enjoy the space and have a feast getting some really amazing shots everywhere I could! Not only did the space itself have a ton to offer, but Lin herself put in a LOT of DIY on decorations, wedding favors and center pieces! It was an amazing day, full of tears, laughter and crazy friends gettin DOWN. But definitely a DAY WELL SPENT!

Kelly & Corey are good friends of mine— so I was really excited to photograph their wedding! They had a beautiful and intimate ceremony in the backyard of this adorable Brooklyn Restaurant called Milk & Roses. It was really fitting because books lined the walls of the restaurant - and if you know Kelly- she LOVES reading :D They got ready at the Franklin Guest House Hotel with Beauty By Jess Lee, and Kelly wore this beautiful dress from BHLDN. We did their first look in the gritty streets of Brooklyn and finally ended the night where their hearts truly belong- Queens! We got some amazing sunset shots by the Globe in Flushing Meadows Park then joined our friends for more celebrations! Here are some of my favorite shots of the day!
