The rain dotted the windows of the Essex House, making the view of Central Park across the street look almost like a painting. Despite the weather, laughter rang out as Natasha and her bridesmaids popped champagne, listened to a pretty awesome wedding mix, and slipped into their gorgeous gowns!  The day had finally arrived for Natasha to marry John and she was SO excited!  These two love birds met through a mutual friend who lived in the same building during their time in New York and they hit it off right away!

John had also been looking forward to this day for a long time.  As he was watching his beautiful bride walk down the aisle at St. Ignatius church, a huge smile spread across his face!  In front of their family and friends Natasha and John promised to spend their lives loving and supporting one another.  Afterwards, they headed to Central Park for a few fun and romantic portraits in the place where they got engaged!  As we arrived, the clouds parted and the skies cleared!  The rain earlier in the day had left the park almost entirely empty and it felt like we had the place to ourselves.  It was magical!

The rest of the evening went by in one amazing blur as Natasha and John danced the night away, toasted to a long and happy marriage, and indulged in delicious wedding cake and Momofuku cookies!  It was an honor to be a part of such an amazing celebration and I can’t wait to share a few of my favorite images below.  Congratulations again Natasha and John!  Your Central Park Boathouse wedding was truly a dream and I am so happy for you both.

Edda + Slava may come from different backgrounds (he is Russian, she is Peruvian) but they totally connect through their love for travel, adventure, their families, and their adorable Bichon Frises of course! After seven sweet years together, Slava proposed to Edda in Central Park on a beautiful December day. Central Park is forever Edda and Slava’s hearts, making it the perfect spot for their engagement photos!  We met on Bow Bridge at sunrise and captured beautiful portraits by Bethesda Fountain, the Mall, and in the pretty pink cherry blossoms!  Don’t you just love spring in New York?!  Enjoy a few of my favorite moments from our time together below.

Lena + Steven really are such beautiful people.  Their relationship is filled with joy, laughter, adventure, and so much love!  Steven surprised Lena by proposing at the top of One World Trade Center!  “It is a moment I will always remember,” explained Lena, “it was so special!”  Lena and Steven are tying the knot at the Central Park Boathouse this spring and I am beyond excited for their gorgeous day!  As we approach their wedding, I wanted to look back on a few of my favorites from their NYC engagement session this summer.  Grab an iced coffee and enjoy getting lost in all the sweet moments below!

There is just something about the Hamptons that makes my heart so happy!  The quiet beach days, quaint towns, and the beautiful scenery always leaves me feeling relaxed and rested.  This past fall I had the pleasure of photographing Fayon and Adam’s gorgeous Wolffer Estate engagement photos.  They brought along their adorable frenchie Texy for a fun afternoon of exploring the vineyard and frolicking on the beach at sunset!  Enjoy a few of my favorite moments from their Hamptons engagement session below.
