Central Park Engagement Shoot – Vusala and Gurban

Meet the adorable Vusala and her fiance Gurban. I had been talking with Vusala for a while about their destination wedding, so it was really excited to finally meet them! We had a really wonderful shoot in Central Park that felt very ‘fall’ to me. As my readers know, I love the fall weather and I’m excited that it is upon us (though you wouldn’t know it today!). Vusala and Gurban were so much fun to be around. I love to watch how couples interact and I think it’s pretty obvious just how much these two love one another (as you will see in their photos below). I can’t wait to head to Jamaica with these two in January!

Vintage Engagement Shoot – Allison and Greg

Allison and Greg are planning an adorable vintage wedding to take place this November at the Old Field Club in East Setauket. When we sat down to talk about their engagement shoot, Greg was a bit hesitant to do one. We threw around some ideas at our initial meeting, but when Allison emailed me with her final idea – I was totally in love. As they’re ‘mad about Cary Grant and Katharine Hepburn’ they decided to theme their engagement shoot around Grant/Hepburn movie scenes and posters. I thought Greg would be nervous, but he was hysterical! He had all these ‘back stories’ for the shots we were setting up that had me and Allison in hysterics. Engagement shoots always psych me up to shoot a couple’s wedding – I was excited before, I’m ten times as excited now!

Newborn Photographs – Baby Aviva!

Say hi to the very adorable and really tiny Aviva Phoenix. Just over a week old when I photographed her, Aviva was super sweet and easy to work with. A big thank you to Heather and Andrea for being so easy going and calm during the shoot – it really rubbed off on Aviva. Once she fell asleep, nothing could wake her – she was sleepy and snug in her little bear suit!

Why hello!

It’s been crazy busy. Summer is coming to an end and fall is nearly here (bring on the pumpkin pie and sweater weather, I’m ready). I have been shooting nonstop, which feels amazing, but I know I’ve been neglecting my blog and that doesn’t feel so nice. I know, I know, it happens…

So I wanted to post a peek at a few of the shoots I’ve done over the past few weeks. Lots of variety – which is lots of fun! Surprise proposals, teeny tiny newborn, huge wedding parties, vineyard weddings and shotgun weddings! It’s been a real blast. I promise everyone will get a dedicated blog post, but for now…
