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:
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!!
Sherrie and Dan both attended Teacher's College at Columbia University on the Upper West Side of NYC. So when they asked if they could do their engagement session there-- I was really excited!!! I don't know what it is about libraries... ^_^ Our session began in the space where they spent most of their time studying, learning and equipping themselves to become the wonderful teachers that they are today. Dan now teaches High Schoolers and Sherrie teaches elementary students. I have so much respect for these two, they are excited to inspire and mentor the younger generation. They're also extremely carefree, fun and easy to be around and talk to!! It was a great session filled with taking polaroids of each other, singing, playing the guitar & ukulele and just really enjoying being each other's presence. We ended the night at Riverside Drive Park, and it was such a wonderful space and atmosphere to be in! It was awesome and I can't wait to photograph their wedding day as their new york city wedding photographer! They will be having their reception at Picnic House in Prospect Park! It’s going to so rad!!!
Anuja and John are SO adorable!! John is a man of never-ending information (which is totally impressive) and Anuja is a sweet and witty lady! I loved working with them, eating (and drinking) our way through Brooklyn - their neighborhood! We made pitstops at Luke's Lobster and Three's Brewing Company, found interesting and odd spaces and ended the session making SMORES on their brooklyn rooftop that had a view of New York City!! *___* It was a really a fun shoot and I'm so thankful for couples that allow me to be creative, energetic and spontaneous! Another great day as a new york city wedding photographer! Here are some of my favorite shots:
