The Hartford Club: Hartford, CT: Rachel & Matthew's Wedding

Rachel and Matthew first met six years ago at a New Year’s Eve party he was throwing at his house.  He noticed her right away and was definitely interested but he found out that she was dating someone else at the time.  A month later, their paths crossed again when they ended up at the same local bar with their respective group of friends.  Somehow, as the night started to wind down Rachel and Matthew each just happened to be the last of their group of friends left in the bar.  They got to talking and before either of them knew it, they had spent the better part of two hours sharing their hopes, their dreams and their goals for their lives.  Matt would later tell Rachel that he left the bar that evening fully confident that she was “the one.”

A year went by.  Slowly for Matt, who had decided to wait for Rachel.  He didn’t want to risk being in another relationship should Rachel suddenly become single.  And when she did, Matt was there for her.  He became a source of comfort for her and when she wasn’t sure if she still had feelings for her ex, he encouraged her to make sure the relationship had run it’s course.  (I mean, how incredible is that? That he cared about Rachel that much that he was willing to let her go just for her to find her happiness.)

She did go back to that ex shortly but found herself thinking of Matt nonstop.  She knew that he was the one she was really meant to be with.  After the tumultuous break-up she had just been through, it took six months for Rachel to officially be comfortable saying they were “dating” but in her heart she knew from the moment she came back to Matt that they were going to be together forever.  Matt knew that too, of course, he had come to that conclusion a little earlier than she did.  So when he proposed to Rachel the following fall, he heard the answer to the question he had been longing to ask since that night in the bar so long before: yes

City Winery: New York, New York: Julian's Bar Mitzvah (Photo + Video)

When Julian’s mother, Jenny, contacted us about his Bar Mitzvah a while back, we knew it was going to be an incredible day.  It was clear from talking with her that she was going to make sure the day was uniquely Julian - bright, fun and dedicated to making sure everyone had a fantastic time.  On the morning of his Bar Mitzvah when we met Julian and saw him with his family, we saw exactly what made them so special.  Julian’s parents are welcoming and loving and have raised two amazing sons in Julian and his brother Eli.

And Julian, he’s a force of nature.  He’s smart, he’s funny, and he’s talented. Believe me, you will see his face again someday because he is on his way to doing some truly amazing things.  All of which are all the reasons why it was so much fun for us to be there to capture such a special day for him and his family.   And what a day it was.  From the ceremony to the fun nod to Saturday Night Live in the theme, there were touches throughout the day that incorporated all the things that Julian loves, his incredible sense of humor and his devotion to his faith and friends and family.

Hoboken, New Jersey: Kristina & Dan's Engagement Session

After chatting online for a while, Kristina felt like she knew Dan pretty well before they had ever met face to face.  He was smart and easy to talk to and she liked hearing him laugh.  So when they did have that first date, she was thrilled that he was every bit as charming in person.  Tall and handsome with big brown eyes; he swept her off her feet.  That was Dan’s hope, of course, because, like Kristina, he had already started to think there was the potential of something incredible between them.  Even through their early communication, he admired her patience, her loyalty to her friends and family. He had started to look forward to simply hearing her voice.  So when he saw her in person - petite and beautiful with dark hair and a sweet, shy smile - Kristina won Dan’s heart right away.

From that first date on, there was an instant connection.  They met each other’s friends and family and were delighted to find that the general consensus was exactly what they had been thinking: they are perfect for one another.  So when Dan filled a room with balloons last March and surprised Kristina with a ring and a big question, no one was surprised when she answered with an emphatic yes. 

This fall they’ll tie the knot in Kristina’s home town and celebrate with what will no doubt be a magical reception filled with love for the couple that were so clearly meant to find each other.

Best of Engagements 2014

We're more than half way into January but,  truth be told, I'm just now coming to terms with the fact that we have started a new year.  That's probably because our Fall season was almost non-stop (always a good thing, we love having a full calendar) and we're finally getting the chance to reflect a bit on the year that was.  One of our favorite ways to do that is to think back about all the wonderful couples we have met over the course of the year by looking through all of the images we captured.  We enjoyed doing that so much, we thought we'd share some of that experience with you by compiling a few "Best of" galleries of our personal favorite photos we have taken in 2014. 

We're kicking it off with engagement sessions - some of our favorite portraits from sessions that took us all around New York City and around the country.  Check back for more "Best of" galleries, which we'll be blogging soon!

New York, NY: Abby & Mark's Family Session

It’s always so much fun to get to catch up with a couple whose wedding we photographed several years before - to hear about what they have been up to, to see how crazy in love they still are, and, quite possibly, to meet the newest addition to their family.  I’ve said it before, but I genuinely do miss couples after we have completed everything for their wedding. We have been lucky enough to meet some truly remarkable people and always love to chance to get to see them again after their wedding is done.

This fall we got to do just that with Abby and Mark.  Since their wedding in February of 2012, they have welcomed an adorable little boy named Lincoln and asked us to come capture this time in their lives.  We met them at their home in the city to photograph Lincoln in his full toddler glory.  He is an amazing little boy - completely fearless and so full of energy, with an adorable smile that just melts your heart.  We lucked out with a mild fall morning for their session but still had plenty of leaves on the ground for Lincoln to play in.  Having a toddler ourselves, we know that they are almost constantly moving so when you capture just the right moment that encompasses their personality, it’s a wonderful feeling. 

The Maritime Aquarium: Norwalk, CT: Bari & Rob's Wedding

Bari’s friends distinctly remember the night she met Rob for the first time.  Out to celebrate all their hard work as the semester at school was winding down, Bari and her friends were in a Boston bar having a great time.  A break from studying was much needed and they were going to make the most of it.  Somehow over the course of the evening, Bari started talking to the handsome guy who had spotted her across the room.  Easy-going and tall with a friendly smile, it’s not hard to see why Bari feel for Rob so quickly. Of course, he was taken by Bari’s infectious personality, amazing laugh and big brown eyes.  

From the moment they started talking that night, Bari and Rob were pretty much inseparable.  They understood one another better than anyone ever had before. In each other they had found a kindred spirit. When you see Bari and Rob together, you can’t help but smile.  So it’s no surprise that their wedding was truly a celebration.  Because since the moment Bari and Rob found each other, it’s been clear where they were headed. And no one could be happier for them than their family and friends who have seen each of them become the very best versions of themselves simply by being together. 

Fox Hill Inn: Brookfield, Connecticut: Courtney & Chad's Wedding

Courtney and Chad met online, finding each other via Facebook when they were both high school seniors in Connecticut.  It wasn’t long after their first in-person meeting that they were a couple, falling hard for one another just as their lives were about to change.  After graduation, they were practically inseparable all summer before they headed their separate ways for college, with Courtney staying in Connecticut and Chad heading down to Virginia.  Although miles apart with very much altered day-to-day lives, one thing remained constant for Courtney and Chad: the way they felt about one another.  From that first day to today, they have consistently been crazy about each other.    Through the first three years of school, they committed to seeing each other as often as possible, alternating time between Connecticut and Virginia, with Courtney even visiting Chad in London when he studied abroad for three months. By their senior year, the distance proved to be just too much, so Courtney transferred down to Virginia as well.  

After Chad’s graduation, they moved back north and Chad started to plan the perfect way to ask Courtney to be his wife.  He had known she was the one since the day he realized that she whole-heartedly accepted him for who he is, when he was touched by her unending support and love.  So he knew that the day he asked her to marry him had to be special.  He selected a day when all of his family would be together, going into NYC to see the Christmas tree.  Once there, he brought her to just the right spot under the guise of taking some “family pictures.”  Of course, to Courtney’s surprise, Chad got down on one knee.  When she said yes, cheers erupted, the loudest of which coming from Chad’s family who were thrilled to finally have Courtney become an official part of their family.

Central Park: NYC: Katie and Henry's Engagement Session

There are few places more romantic than Central Park in the fall.  Maybe Paris in the fall could tie for that honor.  Or Hawaii, well, just about anytime. Some people may only dream about visiting just one of those locations.  But Katie and Henry are lucky enough that each of those places will hold a special place in their hearts for the rest of their lives because it will represent a time in their lives or an event that took place to mark the next step in their relationship.  

Last fall Henry proposed to Katie in Paris, surprising her by popping the question on one of the most beautiful and famous bridges along the Seine.  This fall, they decided to have their engagement session in Central Park, capturing the place they currently call home.  In just a few short months they will gather all of their friends and family in Hawaii, where they will become husband and wife in Honolulu.

We had a great time getting to know Katie and Henry a few weeks ago when we lucked out with a gorgeous warm fall day and a not-too-crowded Central Park that served as the perfect backdrop for this time in their lives.

Sole East: Montauk, New York: Michelle & Steve's Wedding

The morning of Michelle and Steve’s wedding, some of their friends were jokingly placing bets on just how many times Michelle would cry that day.  There was little doubt that she would, of course, and whatever the highest estimate was - Steve guessed the actual number would be higher.  Not because Michelle’s more emotional than anyone else, but because she is so completely genuine. When she’s feeling something, she feels it fully.  And if you spend just a few minutes with her family, you can see that is a family trait.  This is a family without artifice.  If anyone was going to cry more happy tears than Michelle, it was probably going to be her parents.  Or maybe her grandparents. Or her sister or brother.  And, in truth, Rob and I cried some happy tears for Michelle and Steve too.  Really, I think you would have to be made of stone to not tear up at their wedding.

Because theirs was a day that no one will soon forget.  From their incredibly sweet first look to their heartfelt hand-written vows, Michelle and Steve laid bare the way they feel about each other and it was amazing to watch.  It’s not often you get to see two people so perfectly matched, so completely in sync and that made the celebration even more joyous and beautiful.  The setting, the decor, the tables, the flowers were jaw-droppingly beautiful (not a surprise since Michelle has organized countless weddings at the NYC hotel where she works), but they didn’t for one minute distract from the magic that was watching Michelle and Steve together.  When they are together, you can see them just kind of melt into each other’s arms.  They are free to be themselves.  And that’s exactly what they wanted for their guests that day: a wedding that was romantic but relaxed, where their guests would be comfortable.  Theirs would be a wedding were everyone was free to be themselves, to cry happy tears and dance like crazy.  And at the end of the night, after Michelle and Steve had no doubt greeted everyone in that tent with big hugs and contagious smiles, they walked out under a sea of sparklers held by all the people they love most.  And there wasn’t a dry eye to be found.

Grace Restaurant: Portland, Maine: Jessica & Ben's Wedding

Rob and I met Jessica a decade ago, back when Rob and I worked together at Sacred Heart.  Jess was one of the most outgoing students I had ever met.  She was bubbly and sweet, the kind of person who really paid attention to the people around her and would give thoughtful gifts for no occasion.  So when she contacted us last year to tell us that she was engaged to the man of her dreams, we couldn’t have been happier for her.  She deserved every happiness, and hearing her gush over the phone about Ben and the plans she was already putting in place for their wedding day made us even more excited that we were one of her first calls as she got the plans in order.

We met Ben the morning of their wedding day and quickly saw why Jess fell hard for him.  He’s every bit as sweet and generous as she is, quick to laugh and fiercely devoted to the people he loves.  The two of them together have a sort of contagious energy, like you’re just waiting for one of them to say something hilarious.  They had worked together to make their wedding day special, honoring those they love and making sure that everyone gathered together to celebrate with them would have a blast.  From the family heirloom trinkets Jess carried with her to honor her late grandparents, to their rhyming, Suess-inspired vows, their wedding day was full of thoughtful, quirky touches that made it all the more personal and emotional for everyone in attendance.

New Haven Lawn Club: New Haven, Connecticut: Nicole & Sal's Wedding

The way the storm clouds rolled in, it was clear pretty early on that there would be no significant break from the rain on Nicole & Sal’s wedding day. As she was getting ready that morning with her bridesmaids, the rain pounded on the windows, alternating between intense downpours and the kind of sideways sticky rain that even umbrellas can’t shield you from.  But inside that room, there was no hint of that dreariness. It was as though Nicole herself was a virtual ray of sunshine - her complete and total joy shining on everyone around her.

It was that radiance that had drawn Sal to Nicole in the first place and when he saw her for their first look, his face lit up too.  The two of them were beaming: Nicole with her irresistible, kid-on-Christmas-morning smile, Sal with his sly smile and incredible dimples.  From the first look to their ceremony and then out on the dance floor, they were completely connected.  Sal constantly reaching for her hand, Nicole draping her arms around his neck.  And as you watched the two of them, so completely in sync and head-over-heels in love, you could tell  that theirs would be a life together that could brave any storm and brighten even the rainiest of days.

Washington, DC: Brooklyn & Charlotte's Portrait Session

There are few things we love more than the kind of email we received from Nicole and Pat not too long ago.  Our babies have arrived, we’d like you to photograph them. 

It’s a huge honor for us to know that Nicole and Pat would like us to continue to capture their journey together as a couple, especially with moments as precious as their first months together with their sweet twin girls.  As parents ourselves, we remember the whirlwind of emotions that come in those first few months and one of the strongest is the knowledge that each of those moments go by so quickly, that babies go so fast as you want to hold on to each and every minute as much as you can.  That’s why we love sessions that take place in the children’s home, where they are the most comfortable, where all of the memories are naturally unfolding.

After capturing Nicole and Pat’s engagement session and wedding back in 2010, we were thrilled to return to D.C. to see their beautiful home and meet their gorgeous daughters.  We are so happy for them and the life they have built together. We feel so lucky that we’ve been able to capture that joy for them and hope to continue to do so for many years to come.

Private Estate: The Hamptons, New York: Danielle & Ben's Wedding

Even though they both lived in the city, Danielle and Ben met for the first time when the heat of the summer drove them to find respite on the nearby shore of Fire Island.  A mutual friend introduced them which led to what would become Ben’s best discovery since he had arrived in the US from England: Danielle.  They didn’t become a couple right away, but once they did it was clear that they were meant to be together.  

When they started to plan their wedding, they decided to return to Long Island, to marry on a warm Fall afternoon.  At a beautiful private estate in the Hamptons, they gathered together all their friends and family from near and far to celebrate with them as they promised forever.  There was barely a dry eye when Danielle and Ben exchanged their hand-written vows and barely an empty space on the dance floor as they celebrated well into the evening.  When the party came to an end, Danielle and Ben danced out onto the lawn of the estate, surrounded by sparklers, music and plenty of love.

Gramercy Park Hotel: New York, NY: Jean & Andrew's Wedding

When they first struck up a conversation at a crowded midtown Manhattan bar in the spring of 2009, Jean had no idea that she had just met the man she was going to marry.  But there were things that might have tipped her off that the universe was trying to bring them together.  They were both raised in Texas, and in spite of sharing a mutual friend, they didn't get to know each other until they happened to move to the biggest city in America.  They might have passed one another in the lobby or on the elevator of the office building in which they both happened to work, but they didn't have their first conversation until they just happened to be in one of the many, many bars in the city.

Even though that first conversation went really well, Jean didn’t think there was much of a future at first because Andy had told her he was moving to LA in just three weeks. He asked for her number anyway and called her several times to ask her to join him for an official first date.  Thankfully, she agreed to go and see where this could lead.   

That night, over dinner in the West Village, Jean and Andy made a connection so strong that it ultimately made him decide to postpone his cross-country move for a bit just so he could spend more time with her.  When Andy did finally go to LA, they stayed together and had some fun with the distance - seeing each other every two or three weeks and sometimes meeting in another city they could explore together.  Somewhere over the miles of air travel, long phone calls and adventures together in new cities, they both discovered that they couldn’t live without each other.  

Once Andy returned to New York and they started planning their wedding, they decided it had to take place in the city that had brought them together. This fall, they exchanged vows in the NYC neighborhood they now call home and we feel so honored that we were there to capture the magic of their day with their family, friends and their sweet dog, Tofu.

New Haven Lawn Club: New Haven, CT: Debbie & Todd's Wedding

After spending a wonderful afternoon in New Haven with Debbie and Todd for their engagement session and hearing about all the amazing things they had planned, we knew that their wedding was going to be fabulous.  And we were absolutely right.  From the moment Debbie and Todd first saw each other, they didn’t stop smiling at one another and we loved getting to spend time with them in Edgerton Park before the ceremony began back at the Lawn Club.

They had a gorgeous set-up for their ceremony, having the chairs arranged in the round so their friends and family were surrounding them on all sides and their beautiful chuppah directly in the center.  It was a short and sweet ceremony with heartfelt readings and beaming parents in the front row. Cocktail hour set the tone for the lively evening to follow with impromptu sing alongs by the grand piano. More performances followed during the reception - a Bollywood-style dance from Debbie’s friends from Harvard and an a cappella performance by The Duke’s Men of Yale, which Debbie joined as a surprise.  When they night came to an end, Debbie and Todd made a grand exit under sparklers, once again surrounded by the family and friends they loved, smiling all the while.

Gramercy Park Hotel: New York, NY: Ellie & Luke's Wedding

Having grown up nearly 10,000 miles apart, it’s entirely possible that Ellie and Luke may  have never met one another.  Being that Ellie was from the UK and Luke grew up in Australia, their paths may have never crossed had it not been for their shared sense of adventure and the fact that they happened to pursue the same career.  They met when they were both far from home, working for the same company in Moscow.  They remember the first night they got to know each other outside of work, spending time with co-workers a particularly rowdy Moscow bar where Ellie impressed Luke with her sense of humor and lust for life.  He, of course, had caught her eye already and as she got to know him she was thrilled to discover he was every bit as wonderful as she hoped he would be.

They found that in addition to work they had quite a bit in common - fierce loyalty to their friends and family, dedication to their careers and a desire to see as much of the world as possible.  From the moment they became a couple, they were like a force of nature - driven in work, spirited in play - the people that you couldn’t help but want to be around.  When Luke got a job opportunity in Hong Kong, it wasn’t long before Ellie joined him there.  A proposal followed not long after to which Ellie enthusiastically said yes.

As the started to plan their wedding they knew they wanted it to take place in their favorite city in the world: New York.  This fall, nearly 5,000 miles from where this Aussie groom met his British wife in Moscow, Ellie and Luke said I do with their closest friends and family standing around them, surrounded by the cityscape of Manhattan.

Ridgefield, Connecticut: Tom & Becky's Family Session

We always love getting to meet up with couples after their wedding as their families grow - meeting their babies and getting to capture the next stage in their lives together.  That’s especially  true for this session since Rob and I have known Tom for many, many years, having attended Sacred Heart University with him and, like so many people at SHU, have gotten to know Tom as the true positive force of nature that he is.  When we photographed his wedding to Becky last year, we got to see first-hand just how special their connection to one another is and the beautiful family they already had with Becky’s daughter Katie.  

They have now added another gorgeous little girl to their family and we joined them in their picturesque hometown of Ridgefield for a session with them as a family of four.  We had a blast exploring their town with them, catching up with what they have been up to and  hearing about Tom’s ever-expanding magic business (he’s incredible, by the way, if you have a party or event coming up and you’re looking for some great entertainment - check him out).  We can’t thank Tom & Becky enough for  trusting us to capture these special moments in their lives and we look forward to seeing them again soon as their beautiful girls get older. 

Central Park: NYC: Lindsey & Eric's Engagement

Lindsey and Eric met as kids, way back when they shared summers together at the same camp.  They weren’t a couple then, but when you see them today it’s hard to imagine there was ever a time when these two weren’t intricately connected.  They have the kind of witty banter you would see in a old-school romantic comedy and chemistry that make them captivating to watch whenever they are together.  You can’t help but have fun when you’re with them because they’ll make you laugh just as much as they make one another.

We spend an afternoon with Lindsey and Eric on what happened to be an incredibly gorgeous day in Central Park.  They spent most of the time laughing, joking around with one another and making us super happy.  Because there’s nothing better for a photographer than a couple who are completely at ease with each other and whose natural chemistry is a true joy to capture.

Spring Lake Bath and Tennis Club: Erin & Owen's Wedding

There are some weddings when, as a watchful observer, we can look around the room and see that there is a clear consensus.  At Erin and Owen’s wedding, that consensus was, it’s about time.  You see, Erin and Owen met for the first time when they were just eight years old, and even from that very first day they had a special connection.  Back then, it was a bond sparked by the discovery that they shared the very same birthday - same day, same year.  As they got older, attended the same middle school and high school, they discovered they had much more in common and became close friends.  But, even though they attended the prom together, they never dated back then.  

After graduation, they went to separate colleges but stayed in touch.  They and their group of friends would get together during breaks and over the summer, and although both Erin and Owen may have had an inkling that there could be something more between them, the timing was never quite right.  Until it was.  In the fall of 2009, they both ended up living and working in New York City, and connected in a new way.  To hear his friends tell it, it was obvious that Owen had been crazy about Erin for years.  And when they finally became a couple, everyone agreed that they just made sense together. 

On their wedding day, there was laughter, tears, love and a definitive sense that every person in the room knew that Erin and Owen were met to be together.  And, like in most things in life, it’s all about timing.
