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!!!

Minton's Playhouse Wedding - Harlem NYC - Rose and Terrence

“I never want this feeling to end.”

I was fourteen years old, and I was hanging out with Rose and Deena in Manhattan (they were real city girls), and we had just ordered in some food and were singing show tunes. We were camp friends (shout out to French Woods!), but we had graduated to also becoming real friends and hanging out even outside of camp. I remember being with them and feeling so free, so accepted, so full of warmth, and I vividly remember thinking “I never want this feeling to end.”

A few months ago, Rose reached out to me as she was putting together her wedding. We hadn’t spoken in over 15 years, but all those feelings came flooding back, and it was like no time had passed at all. It was incredible to catch up, and it was profoundly moving to realize that I would get to be part of her wedding celebration, despite having lost touch over the years. “And Deena will be there!” she said.

Rose and Terrence (and baby bump!), there were so many very special parts of your wedding day. The most obvious was that I was able to reunite with two favorite childhood friends. The most satisfying part, however, was seeing the connection between you two. Terrence, you were instantly warm and inviting (and with a killer sense of humor), and although it’s not surprising, it makes me so happy to see that Rose has found herself a husband that is worthy of her. Rose, I’m so glad we were able to pick up right where we left off, and I couldn’t be more thrilled for you and your growing family. Congratulations to the two of you!

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!!
