Central Park Engagement | New York Wedding Photographer

We laughed, we cried, we froze! Okay so maybe we didn't cry but it was so cold that we almost did! Andrea and Scott were such troopers and it was great getting to know them during their engagement session in Central Park. I can already tell that their wedding taking place at the beautiful Coindre Hall is going to be amazing! These two know how to laugh and have fun. One of the coolest things about this session was that Scott knows Central Park like the back of his hand. I learned so many things about the park and some great tips for finding my way around. Thanks Scott!!

How adorable are these two?

At some point in the session my lips froze! I bet theirs didn't!! SMOOCHES!

I have no idea what Scott said to get this reaction from Andrea but I know it had to be hilarious and borderline trouble! Love it!

Bear Mountain Wedding | New York Wedding Photographer

Since we met in Boston for their engagement session I have been looking forward to James and Nicole's wedding. When Nicole looks at James you can fill the love reach out and surround him. If you don't want to feel good step back because the love will surround you as well! Lucky for me I LOVE the feeling. I am lucky to be surrounded by clients that have to much love to give and to share.

When I arrived for the day and first saw Nicole I was instantly greeted by her wonderful smile and energy. We gave each other the biggest hug, and as we talked for a few seconds she suddenly hugged me again. It was great to know she was as happy to have me there as I was to be there! SO enough gushing about how wonderful these two are. On to the photographs so you can also see how wonderfully happy they were on their big day.

Check out the ICE!

Nicole is STUNNING! Rollers and all!

There was only supposed to be one hair and makeup photo in this sneak peek but I could't help myself. GORGEOUS!

I love that all of the girls are crowding around to see the veil go on... almost time!!

Are you kidding me with all of this AMAZINGNESS!!! James you are a lucky guy!!

Nicole you are equally lucky! How handsome does James look waiting for his first look at Nicole?

For all of my future couples: The first look is a very personal and private moment that you can share as a couple on your wedding day. By having a first look before the ceremony, you can take advantage of seeing each other without the nerves of walking down the aisle with all eyes on you. It will likely be the only time you are alone together that day and is also a way to make sure your portraits are taken while there is still wonderful light in the sky.

I am pretty sure that Nicole caught someone peeking! They just couldn't stay away ;)

Yup James I caught that hand ;)


Very Happy Parents!

A silly one for good measure!

Nicole is all about her girls! Another thing I love about her!

I heard from Nicole that James had about 3 or 4 full fledged bachelor parties and one of them included a camping trip! Love it!

I wish you two all the best! You are both AMAZING people and I thank you for making me a part of your wedding day!

Brooklyn Baby | New York Baby Photographer

When I arrived to this little guy's home I was greeted so warmly. He gave me a shy smile that said "you look ok but I have to check you out for a few minutes." So we watched a few minutes of TV and became buddies over an episode of Elmo's World. What could be a better bonding experience?

Brooklyn Bridge Mini Session | Brooklyn New York Photographer

One word... CUTE! Ok so I say that all the time. But do you see these faces I photograph! BEAUTIFUL!! This little beauty posed it up for the camera; and after a while I even got some great candid shots of her which made me super happy!! It was so funny once she discovered the playground and that became her main focus. I had so much fun floating around the park with her. Yes she did float... like a pretty little fairy!

For fellow Sookie Stackhouse fans I don't mean that kind of fairy ;)

This should definitely be a canvas Mom!

Brooklyn Bridge Mini Session | Brooklyn New York Photographer

Alana was on of my very first clients and I was so happy to see her again! Though I have a feeling she is far from shy she is always shy with me and I am very proud when I get her to smile and grin! It was still early when we shot her mini session and the light was just perfect!

Brooklyn Bridge Park Mini Session | Brooklyn, NY Baby Photographer

All I have to say is way too cute! I remember when he was tucked away in his Mom's belly and also his visit to the studio's Masquerade party last year. Once he realized that he could walk around and I would follow he was on the move. Those first few seconds of stillness had me fooled! This little guy enjoyed being the center of attention and a brisk morning at the park. I loved watching him run around, and all the smiles he gave me.

Brooklyn Bridge Park Mini Session | Brooklyn, NY Baby Photographer

One word... ENERGY! I wish little A would give me some of his because he must have an endless supply. Nydia you are an amazing and beautiful mom. The way you keep up with your little guy is awesome. I had so much fun with you two. Capturing little A's many faces and climbing moves put a smile on my face.

By the way Nydia has a great blog that everyone should check out.
