Shooting Melanie and Matt's engagement session was a TON of fun. They picked out a bunch of hot spots that they frequented when they lived in the Upper West Side in New York City. They chose the subway station they always got out of, the supermarket they always shopped at, the cafe they always got their sweets on and then the gardens they used to take strolls in nearby their old apartment. This entire engagement photo shoot was everything that represented their relationship-- and that's what made it so special. Even just being a part of the New York City traffic jams was all part of their lifestyle. Not to mention- I love shooting in the most unique places- supermarkets O__O!! Working with these two was so easy and fun and these photos definitely capture their relationship and personality. I love what I do and I love being a New York City wedding photographer. Here are some of my fav shots! Enjoy!
The day couldn't be any more perfect. It's been such a rainy Summer, and yet Christy and Dan's wedding day was absolutely perfect! I was really excited to be a part of this wedding... I've seen this wedding from the very start; so to see it come into fruition; it was a huge joy for me! Christy had been showing me all her ideas since day 1 and just blowing me away with some of the amazing DIY projects she made. From the hand-made veil that her mother made for her, to every single center piece item, to the wedding favors, the programs- just about everything at this wedding was meticulously created. The venue was also gorgeous, with high ceilings that flooded the room with natural light. Paired with the simple and elegant center pieces, it was beautiful. Christy also got Dan a surprise Groom's Cake as well!! The cake was decorated with the Yankees logos and bordered by the New York City skyline- which meant a lot to Dan (who is a die-hard yankee fan). We started the day in Brooklyn, then they had their ceremony and reception at the Snug Harbor Cultural Center and it was beautiful! It’s so great to find these hidden gems when you’re having a New York City Wedding! Everything was so sweet, and the wedding was a lot of fun!!!! It was really great being able to see so many old faces and celebrate.
Here are some highlights:
It was great to be a part of this wedding "on the cape". (AKA, on the Cod) :p Sarah and Jason have been dating since college years and have been together since. They are such a cute couple their wedding day was full of friends and family that came from all over to celebrate. They currently live in Houston, TX but wanted to come back to the East Coast (they are natives) to get married. Sarah is an amazing designer so the wedding was filled with beautiful DIY projects. It was truly an interesting day- including a trip to the swamps :) It was great to get out of my comfort zone as a New York City wedding photographer and see other parts of the east coast!
