Ashley + Mike ~ Woodbury, New York Wedding ~ Fox Hollow

Ashley and Mike celebrated their wedding on a cold but beautiful November day this past Saturday. Despite the chill, the day went perfectly and was so lovely to be a part of! We started the day off with the ladies getting ready where I actually got to see my sister-in-law, Veronica, who did all the gorgeous hairstyles. It’s always such a treat getting to work with her! After getting amazing photos of the super cool and loving couple, we made our way to St. Matthew’s Church in Dix Hills for the ceremony, which was so moving and special. Ashley’s father actually drove her to the church in his ’68 black Camaro–a fitting entrance for a bride with a leather jacket! After the couple was officially married, we headed to Dix Hills Park where we took some photos before the ceremony. Ashley looked so perfect and spunky in her personalized leather jacket, a super thoughtful gift from her sister, which kept her warm during the freezing, windy shoot. The shoot was over and it was time to move over to the Fox Hollow’s Somerly Room for party time! Ashley and Mike are such a perfect match–they share a love of drag racing, cooking, and their adorable cat, Mercury. The two actually met through Ashley’s father, who had some car fabrication work done by Mike and developed a friendship with him. It’s so heartwarming to think of a father introducing his daughter to her future husband! It was such an honor to shoot Ashley and Mike’s wedding, especially because Ashley used to be a wedding photographer. I’m super grateful she trusted us to capture their special and important day!

Congratulations, Ashley and Mike! It was amazing working with you both! Here’s to many more happy years together!

Emily + Sean ~ Clinton, New York Engagement Session ~ Hamilton College

I met Emily and Sean where they were staying at up in Clinton, New York last week for their engagement session. We started their session at the cutest bed and breakfast to take a few photos of them with their energetic puppy that they rescued earlier this year. After a few photos there we headed next door to Hamilton College where their love story began! They met in Freshman year and were friends until they started dating in their junior year. They wanted to shoot their engagement photos there because they have so many good memories at Hamilton! We walked around the campus hitting all of their favorite spots, and stopping at others along the way that I couldn’t pass up! The leaves were still so beautiful and I was thrilled we got their session in before the snow storm they had on Saturday!! I had such a great time working with these two and cannot wait for their Hempstead House wedding next year!

Congratulations again on your engagement Emily and Sean! See you next September!!

Katie + Steven ~ Farmingdale, New York Wedding ~ The Heritage Club

Katie and Steven’s wedding was this past Saturday on the most perfect gorgeous fall day! Aside from some unwanted crazy wind, I couldn’t have asked for a better day with these two! It was supposed to rain all day but ended up being absolutely beautiful! I started my day at Katie’s for her prep with her ladies, and my second photographer was with Steven and the guys for groom prep! From the beginning of the day I knew it was going to be a blast to work with these two and their families! After everyone was ready we headed to their ceremony and then went straight to the Heritage Club for portraits and their reception! We shot all of their creatives and bridal party photos utilizing all of the delicious golden light that was shining through the multi-colored leaves on the trees. It was magic. After the sun set we headed indoors for family photos and got everything done with plenty of time and got these two into cocktail hour so they could enjoy themselves and spend time with their guests! I had such a great day working with Katie and Steven. Katie and I are very similar, type A, get it done personalities and we were laughing all day. Steven absolutely adores Katie and it was so nice to document their love for each other. They are high school sweethearts and so their families all got along so well since they’ve known each other for so long! It was so nice to see both happy families celebrating the love between these two! I love these photos and am so excited to share them here!

Congratulations again Katie + Steven! Here’s to many more love filled decades of happiness together!

Melissa + Matt ~ Roslyn Engagement Session ~ Cedarmere

I had the pleasure of working with Melissa and Matt earlier today at their engagement session at Cedarmere in Roslyn! Today is Matt’s birthday and they also celebrated their 10 year anniversary this week so I wanted to get these photos to them quick! I absolutely loved working with these two today! Our shoot started off with a ladybug landing on Melissa {I absolutely love lady bugs!!} and we also had the most perfect fall day! It was 65 degrees and sunny – the perfect weather for this season! These two were so much fun to hang out with and so easy to shoot! I absolutely love how these photos turned out and cannot wait to work with them again at their wedding in 2020!

Happy Birthday Matt + Happy Anniversary to you both! Thank you so much for trusting me to document this happy time in your lives!! See you in 2020!!

Brigid + Sean ~ Oyster Bay, New York ~ Planting Fields Arboretum

I had the pleasure of meeting Brigid and Sean at their engagement session this Tuesday at Planting Fields Arboretum in Oyster Bay. We had the most perfect fall day for their session, and these two were amazing to work with! When I was confirming the session the day before, Brigid asked if it was ok to wear an animal print skirt and I of course said yes!! I absolutely love animal print anything! She seriously rocked it along with her leather jacket! I loved working with these two. We had so much fun together and I can’t wait until their Montauk Yacht Club wedding next year!!

Congratulations again on your engagement Brigid + Sean! See you in October!!
