YAAAAAAYYYYYYYY!!!!!!! Camille and Danny are married!!!!!

I felt I needed to start this post with some sort of exclamation because that’s what Camille and Danny require and inspire. These two high school sweethearts are like a walking party that everyone is invited to. They have an infectious love for life that is contagious while still being grounded.

Camille and Danny, I’m simply obsessed with you. I know you wanted your wedding to be full of fun, dancing, and celebration, and it absolutely was! But at the core of everything was a calm and easy energy that almost seemed to be whispering “Yup. This is right. This is just how it is meant to be.” You two work because you balance each other, and you bring out the parts in each other that may not be directly on the surface. Your connection is undeniable, and you make everyone around you feel like an insider.

Thank you for inviting me into your lives and for making me feel so welcome and valued. I am so happy for you two!!

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!!

Carroll Gardens Engagement - Brooklyn NYC - Sarah and Jeff

Carroll Gardens Engagement Photo Shoot Session Brooklyn NYC Wedding Photographer-12.jpg

This engagement shoot was 8 years in the making…. even though Sarah and Jeff didn’t even know each other 8 years ago.

Sarah and I met in 2010 when we were hired to be flown to Salt Lake City to sing in a concert. The day before we left for the 5-day gig, I bought myself my very first professional quality camera. Needless to say, I took hundreds of pictures on the trip, and Sarah was one of my very first muses.

A few months later, when Sarah was looking for new headshots, she was one of my very first clients.

And when she and Jeff got engaged, I’m flattered that one of her first thoughts in planning the wedding was “David Perlman.”

It was so much fun to once again photograph Sarah during the engagement session! But what I loved most about this shoot was getting to know Jeff and getting to see how well he treats my friend. We all want our friends to end up with someone that we feel is deserving of them, and in this case it warms my heart to see that Sarah and Jeff share an easy-going zest for life and that they treat each other with love, admiration, and respect.

Sarah and Jeff, I’m beyond excited to be on this journey with the two of you. You are so much fun to be around, and I couldn’t be happier that you’re marrying each other and that I get to be along for the ride! Enjoy this sneak peek from your engagement shoot!

Williamsburg and Rough Trade Engagement Session - Brooklyn NYC - Jenn and Scott

Dave Gahan, lead singer of Depeche Mode, if your ears are ringing it’s because your two biggest fans are getting married.

Jenn and Scott met partially because of their mutual love of Depeche Mode, so it was only fitting that these two self-described music junkies had their engagement shoot in Rough Trade NYC, Williamsburg’s music and vinyl mecca. Before going into the store, we had a little jaunt in a nearby park.

Jenn and Scott, your love for life is infectious. I loved being around your energy: joyful, excited, and super fun. I cannot wait for the wedding in May!!!!! (Dave, you better be there.)
