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!

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!!
Laurie and Matthew travel a lot for work, but they call Brooklyn, New York City their home. It was fitting that their guestbook and table cards was themed for travel and airplanes. It was such a pleasure working with these two amazing individuals that have carefree attitude and hilarious comedian friends. Not only was their venue gorgeous - the 501 Union never disappoints., but every thought and detail put into the day was well thought out and accordingly situated to enhance their personalities. It was such a gorgeous, laid back and fun party and really is the type of feeling that is a classic New York City wedding.
