Happiest Friday Internet!

Hope you all an amazing and productive weekend! Let’s just start by saying the name – Sandy. We all hate the name after the terrible damage she caused to the beautiful NJ and NYC area. Sadly, some of us are still recovering from her and well this particular couple got married the Friday right after Sandy. Despite the tragic time, i must say at the end of the night it was as if Sandy had never existed. The wedding must go on and it did! We did Edwina and Danny’s engagement over the summer, click here. They are seriously just the sweetest ever. Even though there were little obstacles here and there throughout the day, I knew, with a love like theirs, the wedding day would be filled with a warm, loving beauty. We weren’t disappointed…

Hope everyone is enjoying the holiday weekend! We figured we add some love + joy to it by sharing this beautiful wedding we shot a couple of weeks ago. Some of you may remember Andrew + Christina from their infamous danceoff/engagement photos – here, their love doesn’t end there. The wedding was just as sweet and amazing as their love is.

Christina + Andrew we are beyond honored to have been part of your special day. Hope you enjoyed every second of your wedding as much as we did. We are thankful to have documented your sweet sweet love.

Special note to Christina – oh my beautiful bride. Who would’ve thought planning a wedding would be so fun and you’d become email buddies with your photographer. 🙂 I have hopes that someday we will be able to live the many lives we say and be able to blog about it. hehe! Much love, my new friend.xo

 

Hope you all enjoyed the photos!

Happiest Tuesday! Hope everyone is safe and sound post Sandy. Erik and i are finally up and running after not having power for over a week. Missed us? 🙂 So excited to share this fabulous wedding we shot of Kenny + Kristine. Several weeks ago i posted their Same Day Edit (click link to view) and we also had the pleasure of shooting the photography of the day as well. The bride and groom got ready in the Andaz Wall Street hotel where they also did their first look. Followed by the magical ceremony and reception at Bridgewaters in South Street Seaport. Okay Okay, enough chit chatting..
