Brian + Fabi

Who: Brian + Fabi

What: Engagement session

Where: East Harlem and Ft Tryon Park in NYC

I have known Brian for almost ten years and am so happy he and Fabi decided to tie the knot! Brian is forever cracking jokes and I love how he always gets Febi to laugh – all the smiles in this session were 100% genuine! For this session we started out in East Harlem (home to many beautiful murals) then went to Ft Tryon Park in Washington Heights.

Nyerr + Eben

Who: Nyerr and Eben

What: Couples Anniversary Portraiture

Where: Liberty State Park and Downtown Jersey City

This couple didn’t get engagement photos taken when they were planning their wedding so instead asked me to photograph an anniversary session for them in Jersey City, where they live. We started out capturing some gorgeous golden hour light and beautiful fall colors at Liberty State Park . We ended the session in downtown Jersey City, taking advantage of all the cool street art and murals for fun pops of color in the background. What a fun afternoon!

Lindsay + Anthony

Who: Lindsay and Anthony

What: UES engagement portraits

Where: Carl Schurz Park

This couple lives just a few blocks away from this lovely park on New York City’s Upper East Side. With beautiful arches, a view of the East River, and not that many tourists, this park is a great place for couples who want a little more privacy for their portrait session. Lindsay and Anthony were such a fun couple to capture - Anthony’s sense of humor got Lindsay smiling from ear to ear.

Elaine + Evan

Who: Elaine and Evan

What: Summer engagement session

Where: Ridley Creek State Park Mansion and Gardens in PA

This park holds a very special place in my heart because it’s where I got married!! I met up with this couple on a lovely May afternoon and loved capturing them in tender, sweet moments in the beautiful gardens and park.

Andre + Solimar

We started out in Jackie Robinson Park in Harlem (the spot of this couple's first date) and ended at sunset by the West Harlem Piers. Solimar is a dancer and one of my favorite parts of this shoot was their impromptu dancing at the park's amphitheater. Adorable! I love this couple's radiant smiles, their love really shines through! 

Sarah + Justin

We spent a sunny Saturday afternoon in DUMBO and Brooklyn Bridge Park for this fun engagement shoot. I adore the new large-scale murals up in the area! They made for such a colorful and lively backdrop to showcase this couple's charm and humor. Justin was great about keeping a constant smile on Sarah's face and was always cracking jokes, especially about the fact that we passed several weddings, engagements, birthday parties and quinceanera shoots going on at the same time in the neighborhood. Viva Brooklyn!

Melissa + Matt

For this session we headed to Sunset Park, which is situated on a hill and provides a beautiful view of the Manhattan skyline. It is also quite an old NYC park and I was enamored of the large trees (which are few and far between in my neighborhood of Long Island City). These two were totally game for all the goofy suggestions I gave them (peaking out of book! twirling! picnic-blanket snuggling!) and I had a blast. :)

Charles + Ryan

I've know Charles for many years (we interned together at Manhattan Theatre Club the first year I lived in NYC - back in 2006 - and have been friends ever since) so I couldn't be more happy for him that he's found the love of his life Ryan. We started out in Forest Hills then drove down to the Dumbo waterfront. I love their bright shirts and vests!

Lauren + Scott

Not only has Lauren been my BFF since I was 10 years old, but she has been my favorite model/photography subject since the first time I picked up a camera in high school. (I may or may not have made her pose in fairy wings surrounded by twinkly lights in her parents' basement). She has found herself a fine gentlemen and when I was down visiting Austin in March for SXSW we snuck in this portrait session at Shoal Creek Park in Austin. How adorable are they? :)
