stephanie and steve, two busy professionals living in new york city, met up with me one afternoon for their west village nyc engagement session. our original date to meet up was an exceptionally hot and sticky day, but the cool thing (see what i did there) about engagement sessions is that we can reschedule them to suit our temperature comfort levels better. here’s to hoping we get the perfect fall weather for their new jersey wedding at the madison hotel in a couple of months. also, stephanie and i are birthday twins. of course, i’m a bit older than her, but that’s just a fun little fact. june 8th, for the win! madison hotel wedding engagement session west village engagement session nyc engagement session New York city west village engagement session

i met up with lindsy, jon and their dog, eevee for their asbury park engagement session on a warm spring evening. ok, not really, it was really cold, but lindsy was a trooper. when lindsy reached out to me about five months before her wedding, i knew she was my kinda bride. i love when a couple is willing to plan a wedding in a short period of time. when they mentioned wanting to bring their dog to the engagement session… then i really knew they were my people.
