Amy and Mike

Listening to your wedding professionals is a good thing.  Amy and Mike wanted to take their engagement pictures at a vineyard, but the date that worked out for that location was cloudy and rainy.  They were very busy with work and taking off another day was challenging, so they wanted to go ahead.  Their photographer urged them to reschedule and after some back and forth they did.  The results were these dreamy pictures below, courtesy of the amazingly talented Jen Huang, taken on a beautiful day at the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens.  Mike and Amy couldn't be happier that they listened to Jen and absolutely love their engagement pictures. I am super excited for their wedding this weekend!brooklyn botanical garden engagement jen huang photography ang weddings and events-1

Winter Tribeca Engagement Session

I love when my clients share their engagement pictures with me.  Here are a few of Hadley and Pree's winter engagement session in Tribeca taken by Arielle Doneson.  Many thanks to Arielle for letting me share them here.From Arielle:  Each Manhattan neighborhood has its own special romance.  It was among the century old factory buildings-turned chic restaurants of Tribeca (they had their first date at the wine bar Terroir,) that Hadley & Pree met and fell in love, so it made perfect sense to take their engagement session to the same beautiful cobblestone streets.

Hadley and I had been in touch about what they should wear for the shoot and we finally decided on some JCrew looks for her and a nice Bonobos jacket for Pree.  An outdoor shoot in Winter requires good coat styling 

In between shots we gushed over our favorite food blogs, NY restaurants, and Paris Haunts as Pree was literally getting on a plane to Paris that night to start work on their new Paris life with Hadley to join him in a few weeks.

We met up on a gorgeous Saturday morning in December and hit up a few favorite Tribeca spots before heading over to Battery Park City with their puppy and finally up to their beautiful apartment balcony on the UWS.  The weather cooperated beautifully for a late December day, the light was perfect, and even the puppy was ready for his close-up.

A Paris Engagement

My dear friends Vishal and Anisha are serious travelers.  They live in London, Vishal proposed to Anisha in New York City, they are getting married in South Africa and they met with their wedding photographer to take their engagement pictures in Paris.  Here are some beautiful images of their engagement session from Jan Hendrik, a photographer who splits his time between Paris and South Africa.  A crisp autumn day in a romantic city.  Gorgeous!

Anisha and Vish - I can't wait to attend your wedding in South Africa!
