* Newborn Sessions *

We were there to celebrate and document the happiness of their engagement and lucky enough to stand by their sides and capture the beautiful moments as they became husband and wife on their wedding day. Now to be with them as they enter the exciting new chapter of parenthood with their sweet little one has been nothing short of a m a z i n g. To be welcomed into their homes during this beautifully tender time is truly such an honor. I look back at that time in our lives when our son was just born with such unexplainable happiness and will always treasure when we became a family of three! There is such an indescribable joy that comes when photographing a growing family and life at the very beginning... 
 
To all of the couples who continue to open their hearts and homes to us, saying "thank you" doesn't seem even sufficient to explain the gratefulness we feel. What an honor it has been to document the beginning of your growing families!

NYC Rock The Dress Session | Liz & Jim

NYC Rock The Dress Session | Liz & Jim

Published in Weddings
They were enjoying a nice relaxing evening at home when Jim mentioned that he had picked up a bottle of champagne for them to enjoy. With a smile Liz picked up the very special bottle to pop the cork, but didn't notice what exactly made this bottle so special. Looking at the label Liz asked Jim why he got such an expensive one?! I mean, goodness, after all it was just a normal evening at home, kicking up their feet and finding something good to watch on tv together! But what was so special about this champagne bottle was actually under the bottle of bubbly. It had been hiding the most breathtaking diamond sparkler which Liz hadn't noticed as she picked up the bottle and moved toward the kitchen to open it! Oh was it going to be anything but a normal evening at home! It was indeed one that would be one of the best and most memorable in their love story! After finally noticing the amazing ring, Liz was speechless as Jim proposed and made her the happiest girl alive!  
 
Liz and Jim tied the knot at their destination wedding in gorgeous Cancun Mexico 1.5 months ago and reached out to me when they got back to book a Rock the Dress session so they would have photos in the city that means so much to them! We headed to Central Park in New York City and Liz definitely rocked her gorgeous gown one more time as they told me about their amazing wedding, recalling all the details of that magical day! You guys, we had soooo much fun! Here are a few of my favorites from their dreamy session!

Fall Maternity Session | Hannah + Rob

It's times like these I am so glad a photo is worth a thousand words, because I couldn't begin to come up with the adequate narrative to attempt to explain the magic of the moment. Where my words will certainly fall short, I hope these images speak so that what the soon-to-be parents were feeling can be remembered vividly and looked back upon generations from now.  
 
The great love, indescribable joy and sweet anticipation that flooded the hearts of Hannah and Rob and overflowed in front of me was truly a privilege to witness and document. It was another maternity session where my words would never due their feelings justice and I only hope that these images will help them never forget the bittersweet "before" their son arrived.... Those sweet "before" weeks that will seem like a lifetime ago once they hear their son's roar which will simultaneously be everything and change everything in the best possible way. 
 
Hannah & Rob - Thank you for giving me the honor of documenting the soon to be beginning of the most incredible, beautiful, mind blowing adventure you could ever imagine. I can't wait to meet your sweet babe when he makes his debut! :)

Hudson Valley Wedding | Shannon & Anthony

Hudson Valley Wedding | Shannon & Anthony

Published in Weddings
The delicate buttons on her gown were looped, bracelet clasped, veil perfectly placed and all the finishing touches were done. Shannon was a gorgeous bride, beaming and smiling from ear to ear ready to marry the man that swept her off her feet years ago. But there was just one more thing. In true Anthony fashion, he had an amazingly thoughtful gift for Shannon from his heart. With her bridesmaids and parents huddled around to see what was in the bag, Shannon found in it a priceless trip down memory lane. Shannon carefully turned the pages of a book Anthony made for her of a story. Not just any story though... their story. She pointed to photos from over the years of the two of them and recalled some of the sweet memories that wove the tale of their love story. There was laughter and tears and oh-my-goodness-remember-whens. "Remember when I told you I was going back to my apartment to study for my test on that day? Well Anthony actually came and got my in the middle of the snowstorm so we could hang out!" "Remember when we all went to that concert together, oh and this trip! I remember like it was yesterday!" I don't know if it was 5 minutes 500, but it was one of those time stands still moments when you get totally wrapped up and lost in the moment unfolding in front of you. Anthony even ended the book with a line from the Notebook (<-- can we say major brownie points!!) and by the time Shannon was done looking through the book, I don't think there was a dry eye in the room! That was only the beginning of a day of celebration and never-forget moments. 
 
The newlyweds toasted champagne, danced the night away and sang their hearts out to their favorite country songs at the Grandview nestled in the gorgeous Hudson Valley. They were surrounded with the ones they hold so dear and the ones who love them to pieces! 
 
Shannon & Anthony - Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for inviting us to be a part of this chapter in your lives and your wedding celebration! We adore you and your families and wish you nothing but love, happiness, and pure joy! Can't wait to see you soon - hope you are having a blast in Hawaii! CHEERS!

Fairfield County Fall Engagement | Tiffany & Bradley

Published in Engagements
Each year that cold crisp New England air and bright gray skies mark that December has arrived to Connecticut and so has the time for the tradition they look forward to every single year. It was that time last year when Brad and Tiffany and their adorable Goldendoodle Nashville set out with their family to find the perfect Christmas tree. All bundled up they walked through the rows of trees and took in the beautiful views from the hills of the tree farm. The sweet scent of evergreen was a welcomed memory from the years before and finding THE tree. But this time, the annual tradition was going to be different and one they would remember for the rest of their lives. Right there with views that stretched for miles, all bundled up in scarves, boots and gloves, Brad declared that he had found THE one that was his best friend, his other half, his forever. The one he wanted to grow old with and couldn't live without. And right there and then he proposed and surprised the love of his life Tiffany with a gorgeous diamond sparkler! Tiffany was shocked to see her long time love and best friend on one knee asking for her heart forever. Pure indescribable happiness and joy! Their annual tradition of cutting down their Christmas tree would now be even more sentimental, special and cherished! We are so looking forward to their wedding next fall - caaaan't wait! 
 
You guys, can we just all agree that their pup Nashville is beyond adorable?! I mean seriously. Oh my goodness and he is so sweet! Here are some favorites from their recent fall engagement session! :)
