New York Engagement Session | Emily & Vincent

Published in Engagements
Vincent had booked a wine and cheese class for his girlfriend Emily and some of the other ladies of the firehouse he was a fireman at. Emily had an amazing time, tasting different wines and the most delicious cheeses with her friends, learning what pairs well together. It was a fun and relaxing time discussing Pinot and Merlot, brie and gruyere and she had noooo idea of the surprise Vincent had in store! When Vincent came to take care of the bill when it was over, in front of their friends he got on bended knee and asked Emily to spend the rest of her life with him. There was indefinable happiness, mile wide smiles, and one huge YES from Emily!  
 
I had so much fun with these two high school sweethearts, chatting and taking in the beautiful views of the New York reservation we went to for their engagement session! These two are truly a perfect pair and I have no doubt their wedding this fall is going to be such a fun and spectacular celebration - we can't wait! 
 
Here are a few of my favorites from their engagement session last week! :)

Yale Anniversary Session | Nicole & Danny

Yale Anniversary Session | Nicole & Danny

Published in Anniversary
It feels like a year ago... ok well mayyyybe two years ago at most that they were on stage at the Bushnell Theater under the starry "sky" dancing for the first time as husband and wife surrounded by their loved ones. It was the most beautiful setting with vibrant pops of color, historic architecture and whimsical details. They floated around the stage in what felt like a fairytale story unfolding right before our eyes there in the theater. It was one of the most uniquely beautiful weddings we have had the honor of photographing!  
 
But their amazing wedding was actually five years ago to the day we walked around the Yale campus for their 5 year anniversary session, talking about all that has changed since then. One of the biggest and most exciting things over the past 5 years was becoming parents and the birth of their son Emmett. You guys, meeting our couple's children is so very special to me. We get to witness the first day of our couple's marriage and the start of "them" as husband and wife and then meeting the little ones that are such a big part of their hearts... well it's truly special. I loved that Emmett joined us for the first part of their anniversary session! 
 
It was truly so special to catch up with Nicole and Danny, see Nicole's parents and of course meet their absolutely adorable son. I can't wait to see what the next 5 years has in store for this family, and I love that they will have these photos to look back on decades from now to reminisce about this sweet time 5 years wed. Happy 5th Anniversary you two!!! 
 
Feel free to CLICK HERE to take a look back at their amazing wedding!

Rustic Acres Farm Wedding | Courtney & Chris

Published in Weddings
Courtney and Chris have such a zest for life, a love for their families and make those around them feel important and special. Their sense of humor draws people to them and you know you will always have fun when you are with them. They are two of the most caring and compassionate people, who will drop everything if you asked them to. They are THAT kind of couple. And let me tell you, their beautiful wedding day was a true celebration of the two of them and a representation of who they are. Love surrounded them on all sides as they gave their hearts to one another for eternity and it.was.amazing. 
 
I think I had tears of joy at least a dozen times during their day and when Courtney's dad thanked Chris and I during his speech and said we have become like family, guys, I almost ugly cried right then and there! Courtney and Chris and their sweet family welcome us with open arms every time we see them. They are some of the most incredible people you will ever meet and when they all come together under one roof its one heck of a fun celebration! This is the third wedding we have had the honor of photographing for this family and we hope that we can crash family reunions in the future!  
 
Courtney & Chris - After your wedding when we got in the car, Chris and I had to sit for a second and soak in everything... all the amazing once in a lifetime moments we were honored enough to witness unfolding right in front of us. There were quiet words spoken, tears of happiness and moments of immeasurable joy that have left a mark on our hearts and we will never forget them. 
 
Here are some of my favorites from their wedding day at Wood Acres Farm!
