Kim & Edwin - Engagement Session at Stonecrop Gardens

Kim and Edwin chose to do their engagement session at Stonecrop Gardens. We had so much fun running around and taking pictures in the gardens and greenhouses. From detail shots on succulents to dance sessions in gardens we did it all. I hope you enjoy looking at these photos as much as I loved taking them!

Kelly & John - Wedding at The Garrison

Kelly and John got married at The Garrison just the day after Jessica & Ronnie (See Previous Post). The snow had all melted for Kelly and John so we were able to explore everything the venue has to offer including their epic sunsets.

The day started with John getting ready at their apartment and then we went to the suite at The Garrison to get Kelly getting ready.

The couple got married at a beautiful church with beautiful natural lighting.

Following the ceremony we headed to The Garrison to take family and bridal party photos along with the bridal portraits. If you know me, I love a goofy bridal party and these guys were hilarious and a bunch of fun.

After the bridal party we headed out and took pictures of Kelly and John.

Then it was....time to PARTY!

Jessica & Ronnie - Wedding at The Garrison

Jessica and Ronnie got married in March at the Garrison! Typically in the last week of march it's starting to get a little warmer but of course not this march. We had snow into April this year! Luckily they still has a small dusting of snow for their photos to make it more romantic.

We started the day with getting ready shots of both Ronnie and Jessica.

Afterwards Jessica had a first look with her dad and there was not one dry eye in the house. Even I was tearing up behind the camera.

Following that was Jessica and Ronnie's first look! They did so good at braving the cold and headed outside for their first look and bridal portraits.

We took their bridal portraits with the snowy Hudson Valley and Hudson River in the background. 

We then dragged the bridal party outside for some bridal party photos! The ladies went inside for a shot to warm up and calm their nerves before the ceremony.

Then it was time for the ceremony! Because of the weather their ceremony was indoors in the beautiful glass room of The Garrison.

After the ceremony it was time to PARTTTTYYYY! As usual Vendors are at the bottom!

New Mexico seems to be the home of hotties nationwide. I'm completely obsessed with all of the models that we had throughout our stay in New Mexico. These two cuties are actually boyfriend and girlfriend....how cute is that??

Meet Randy and Brittany! I'm completely obsessed with how beautiful they are as a couple.

Alex & Ben - Couple's Session at White Sands National Monument

I have had the pleasure of photographing these two several times! I photographed both their engagement and elopement in New York. Ben was transferred to El Paso so when I found out I was heading that way I knew I HAD to message them to see if they were down to come to this magical place. We took some sunset shots and I love that they knew they didn't even have to ask if they could bring their dogs because they know I'm obsessed with animals. Jeff got to hold onto the pups and love them during the shoot and I got to frolic around with one of my favorite couples! Fun fact: The same white dress Alex wore in the second half of the shoot is the same dress she eloped in a few years prior!!

Styled Elopement at White Sands National Monument

Alright guys! It's the moment you have all been waiting for!! I know you saw these hotties on my Instagram and Facebook page. And to answer your question....yes these people are real and they really do make people this hot in real life! 

The White Sands National Monument needs to be on everyone's bucket list is it isn't already. It has the most beautiful sunsets I have ever seen in my life and they're 360 degree sunsets. The sand is amazing and feels like moon sand because the sand is actually made of crushed gypsum! The sand was cool to the touch even though it was hot as balls in New Mexico. While we were shooting they were actually testing rovers for Mars because it's the closest to Mars' sand in the entire world. The White Sands has 180 species of animals that only habitate at White Sands. Okay...now that this sounds like a third grader's history report...let's look at some hotties!!

The Styling team ( 3 Sisters El Paso ) did such an amazing job putting all the details together! It looks like a wedding right out of Urban Outfitters or something!

Chelsea is probably one of the most beautiful people I have ever seen and Cody ain't so bad either!

Sooooo like anyone else think they should get married for real?

Hillary & Kevin - Couple's Session at Minnewaska State Park

This is the last of the 2017 blog posts!!! I'm officially ALMOST caught up!! These two love birds came to me for their holiday photos and I'm so glad they did! Their outfits were on point, the weather wasn't too horrible and they got such beautiful photos!! I recommend Minnewaska to a lot of my couples! It's a super easy 1 mile walk to the falls and then you drive up to the top of the mountain for the lake photos! You get all the adventure photos without having to risk ruining your hair and makeup with strenuous activity. I hope you enjoy flipping through this session!

The Anderson's - Family Session at Ringwood Manor

This loving family has been coming to me for YEARS! Pretty much since I first started my business! I have had the pleasure of watching them grow as a family and have gotten to know them over time. First off...their style is always ON POINT! They dress better than any family I know. I love when I get to see them every Christmas! Think it's too early to start planning your Holiday photos? You're wrong!! I'm already steadily booked until November so it's never too early too reach out! <3

Meagan & Brad - Wedding at The Garrison

Meagan and Brad had their wedding in November at The Garrsion. They were super lucky and had a nice sunny day but were also not so lucky an had a FREEZING day. When I tell you my hands were completely frozen...I'm not kidding. It was hella cold but these two were freaking champs.

We started with detail shots throughout The Garrison. We hung her dress in the bridal suite along with her shoes. Some of their details were very fall-esque such as the skeletons(which I adored byyyy the way).

I started the day by taking getting ready shots of Brad. Hasn't he mastered the GQ look? Both Meagan and Brad were one the most relaxed and calm couples I've ever had.

Following Brad's getting ready shots, I took Meagan's getting ready shots. We started with cute bridesmaids shots on the bed and then Meagan got ready for her first look with Brad!

Meagan and Brad had their first look facing the Hudson River and it was perfect.

Meagan and Brad took their bridal portraits down by the pond at The Garrison and the surrounding areas. Because Meagan and Brad did both the engagement and bridal session we were able to get their photos done super quick!

Following the first look we took some bridal party shots and family shots.

Then it was time for the ceremony! Meagan and Brad had a one of a kind ceremony and a beautiful confetti exit.

Afterwards it was time to PAAARRRTTYYYY!

Matt & Melissa - Wedding at Coveleigh Club

Matt and Melissa got married on an ominous September day. They were super lucky and the storm held out for them and didn't rain once throughout their day. The two had their reception at The Coveleigh Club and their ceremony at a nearby church. 

I started the day with taking pictures of Matt getting ready. Matt got ready with his guys in a room with a pool table and a nice flat screen to watch the game on...what more could some guys need?

Afterwards I headed over to Melissa getting ready with her gals. Melissa had probably the most relaxed getting ready photos I have ever done and then she shared a glass of champagne with her girls before heading out for her first look.

Matt and Melissa had their first look on the windy pier. As if you could get more romantic than that...

We took their bridal pictures on the pier and in front of the beautiful building of The Coveleigh Club. Matt's Father has a vintage station wagon that is actually used in movies frequently so we were able to use that for a few photos!

Following bridal portraits we took some bridal party photos out on the pier.

Matt and Melissa had their ceremony at a nearby church in Rye, New York. I absolutely love their photos walking out from the ceremony. You can see the pure joy on their faces which makes my job as a photographer so simple.

Following the ceremony it was time to PARTAY! I must add....at the cocktail hour I had some bomb ass buffalo taquitos and they were fantastic. If you want to know the way to my heart...now you know.

Maura & Ryan - Engagement Session in New York City

Photographing Maura and Ryan was so much fun! We walked around the city and laughed and joked. We got coffee after..if you know me, that's true love right there. We got to get cute pictures with seasonal Starbucks cups. We got to stalk tourists as they took walking tours through the city guessing which apartment was Monica and Rachel's. We dodged cars as we took cute walking pictures across the street. By the end of their engagement session we were total besties. It was love at first latte! Stay tuned for these love birds' wedding in September 2019!

Alex & Jess - The Thayer Hotel

Alex and Jess got married on a beautiful October day at The Thayer Hotel in West Point, NY. Jess and many of her family members attended the West Point Military Academy so it was a very special place to the two of them. Their wedding story will also be featured on H&H Weddings soon!

Both Jess and Alex got ready in separate rooms with their ladies. Both rooms were full of laughter and love and everyone's emotions were turned up high. From Jess and her girls doing a pyramid, to Alex and her girls doing a champagne toast, both Alex and Jess had the most beautiful moments with their girls.

Jess and Alex saw each other for the first time at the ceremony. During the ceremony everyone was fighting real hard to hold back the tears. Both Alex and Jess were full of smiles and laughter as well. During the ceremony, right after they were pronounced married, Alex got her lipstick all over Jess' face and everyone in the crowd was laughing.

Following the ceremony, we took some portraits with the Saber girls and the bridal party right by the ceremony area.

Afterwards, just the three of us headed all around campus to take pictures in all the same places we took their engagement pictures. We headed to Trophy Point and dodged three other weddings also taking their portraits and then headed over to the reservoir and took some pictures where it was much more quiet.

Following that, it was time to P-A-R-T-Y!!!

Kelly & Nick - Engagement Session at The High Line

It's fitting that I'm blogging these two love bird's engagement session today because today is their wedding day! The three of us walked the High Line and stopped along the way to grab some beautiful shots. The entire time dodging about a billion tourists. Something that's always hilarious about photographing in New York City is that there is always a million people getting in your shot. They'll either stop and stare at what you're doing while simultaneously getting directly in the shot or they'll purposely walk super slow through the shot. Also EVERYONE stops to say congratulations..it's actually super sweet. Following the High Line, we walked down to the water to get some super awesome sunset shots and some more pictures with the skyline. Today these two beautiful souls get married at Crabtree's Kittle House on CINCO DE MAYO!!!! Let the party begin!
