I have a special appreciation for couples that are willing to do sunrise shoots. The light is gorgeous, and the New York City streets are empty. Casey and Jeff were not only willing… they were excited for our adventure!

We caught the beautiful sunrise near their home at Carl Schurz Park before heading to the West Village to Aria Wine Bar, where they had their first date. :)

Casey and Jeffrey, I love how easy you are to laugh, even at 6 in the morning. Your energy is absolutely contagious, and I cannot wait to see your wedding photos!!! In the meantime, enjoy this sneak peek from your engagement shoot!

He Said Yes - NYC Proposal and Central Park Engagement - Luke and Ben

“Hi David it's Luke, today is the day!!!!”

Yes, indeed. The day had finally arrived, and as Luke and I texted about our plans, I could sense the adrenaline, the excitement, the nerves.

Luke and Ben, visiting New York City from their home in the United Kingdom, planned to stop into the Nintendo store since Ben is a huge gamer and has wanted to visit the flagship store for years. Luke knows that he could have proposed anywhere, but he wanted to do it somewhere that would mean a lot to Ben… and somewhere he might not see it coming!

Luke and Ben, I am SO thrilled for the two of you! Your joy and your love is absolutely contagious! I don’t think you came down once during the few hours we spent together. I’m honored that I was able to share this incredible moment with the two of you, and I hope you enjoy this sneak peek from your proposal and engagement session! Congratulations!!!

They say rain on your wedding day is good luck. What about rain at your engagement shoot?

Lisa and Peter, I loved trouncing around Williamsburg with the two of you looking for overhangs, walking with umbrellas, and eventually just giving in and getting all wet. I think it’s safe to say that rain at your engagement shoot is totally good luck, or in our case, at least it’s a great time!

Enjoy this sneak peek from our shoot, and I’m so excited for the wedding in March!!

I’ve known Caroline for eight years, and my husband has known her for even longer. She’s one of the most loving and generous and super-fun people, and it made me so happy to finally meet her fiance Michael at their engagement shoot! (They live in Virginia now or I certainly would have met him sooner.)

I love that Caroline and Michael met at a wedding where she was the maid of honor and he was a groomsman… and they were paired together during all of the photos! It’s so wonderful that the next time they walk down the aisle, it will be at their own wedding.

Caroline and Michael, enjoy these photos from your Central Park engagement shoot! I am so thrilled for you, and I love you.

Douglas and Jason are not running for office. But they ARE getting married!

Douglas and Jason, I’m so excited for your wedding in mere DAYS! It was so great finally meeting at your engagement shoot, and what I love most about you two is how playful you are. I’m obsessed with the fake running-for-office photos, and I love that you wanted to venture into the subway station for photos in a place you frequent daily. You’re so right: Love is in the everyday activities and places. That’s where it really lives, not just in the once-in-a-lifetime moments.

Enjoy these photos from your engagement shoot, and I’m so super thrilled about your wedding on Saturday!!

Are these my wedding clients or my new best friends?

Alex and Anthony, I love that we share a love of ice cream (yummm!), dogs (sorry if I gave Ernie more attention than I gave you), our mothers (Mom always knows best), and of course love. Although you definitely have me beat on the fashion front! :P It was so wonderful meeting the three of you, and I don’t know how I’m going to wait until 2020 for your wedding!!
