These two sweetie pies got married in October at The Briarcliff Manor. They were one of the 45 couples I photographed in October! October is always my busiest month and it’s INSANE how many love birds I meet in a mere 31 days. If you’re looking to get married in October or do photos in October…make sure you book your photographer WAY IN ADVANCE.
I’m throwing it back to this beautiful fall engagement session at Warwick Winery. It was super windy during their engagement shoot but we powered through! During their session a random horse emerged from the background and it was fully lit by the sun. I’ll never forget it because I straight up thought I was hallucinating or something. Until I looked at Chloe and Daniel and they looked just as confused 😂
This Colorado Styled Elopement at Lookout Mountain was dope as all hell. Can we talk about how PERFECT these two are? I’m completely obsessed with them. These were taken during a styled shoot out with Wedding Travelers Co. which you may have heard me talk about before. The beautiful vendor team that put together this shoot is at the bottom as usual.

These two cutie pies are past wedding clients of mine! I reached out to them with an idea I had and I’m so happy they were game! It’s so important to make sure that you also create for yourself when you are an artist of any kind and I’m so glad I did! They look absolutely fiiiiiiiiiine. Am I right? The water was only slightly freezing but I was only in up to my knees so who am I to judge?
These two love birds had their engagement session at the Emmerich Tree Farm in Warwick, NY. Their entire session was filled with laughter, jokes, dancing, and joy. As cheesy as that sounds - it’s true. Jeff assisted this shoot and the four of us were laughing the whole time. Afterwards we all grabbed a bite to eat and had quite easily one of the best pasta dishes offffff my life. These two are super compassionate and down to earth and I loved photographing them! If you like those beanies…go ahead and get yourself one here. Jenn runs her own Etsy shop and her accessories are adorable! I wear my scarf every day! I love being able to connect with my couples and Jenn and Dean made it so easy! I can’t wait for their wedding in July! Happy Scrolling!
Lilly and Mike got married at a very special location to Lilly. Lilly grew up riding horses and they decided to get married at the barn where she rides. The beautiful horse in all the photos is Lilly’s horse Kramer! We made sure that sweet love bug was in as many photos as possible. Not only was he in the photos but Lilly brought him ice cream during the reception from her ice cream truck. What more could a horse want in life? Happy Scrolling!
Katelyn & Randall got married at Senate Garage in Kingston, NY. They had a beautiful fall wedding at the end of September with the perfect weather and of course…the coolest people. These two babes had their first look outside in the gardens and then we jumped into formal portraits so they had plenty of time to party after the ceremony! I hope you enjoy flipping through their beautiful photos as much as I enjoyed taking them! As usual, the vendors are at the bottom!

Sam and Sean had the most beautiful wedding at Handsome Hollow in Long Eddy, NY. The forecast for their wedding was rain, but all it did was sprinkle! The details were to die for and the venue was spectacular.
Sam had gotten ready in the house on the property and Sean got ready in the barn with his guys. The bathroom in the house is to DIE for. And so is the living room area! Check it out!
Sam and Sean had their first look on the wrap around porch at the house so we didn't have to drag her dress through the wet grass.
These two had the most beautiful photos during their ceremony with the low hanging clouds from the rain. They also still got married outdoors even though it was sprinkling. They're proof that you can't let a little rain ruin your day!
After the ceremony we took bridal party photos in front of the barn and then went around the property a little bit. Check out those clouds in the woods!
After all the photos were done it was time to PARTYYYYY. During the reception we headed outdoors to get some photos under the lights and in the photo booth...of course! As usual the vendors are at the bottom of the page!
Kelly and Nick had their beautiful wedding at Crabtree Kittle House. These two lovebirds have been together since college and have never left each other's side. Their details were to die for, the florals were extravagant, and the ceremony was beautiful. It's not often that I cry during ceremonies...but I BALLED during these love bird's wedding. As Kelly walked down the aisle I looked over at Nick who was so happy he was crying and I just lost it. So so so sweet.
Kelly got ready in one of the rooms of the Kittle House. Since their dog couldn't attend...Nick made a cardboard cutout of the dog HAHAHAHA. Weak over here, you guys. I was hysterical laughing at it all day.
Kelly and Nick had an absolutely beautiful ceremony under this beautiful floral arch. All the colors accented the girl's dresses so well.
Following the ceremony we ran off to do some bridal portraits around the venue.
After bridal portraits, we took both family and bridal party shots under their beautiful arch.
After all the formal portraits....it was time to PARTY!! As usual all the vendors are at the bottom!

These two sweethearts are getting married this weekend! We did their engagement session in Purchase, NY at the Pepsi-Cola Gardens. We were so lucky and got to frolic around the cherry blossom trees and were hardly interrupted by anyone! I hope you enjoy scrolling through the photos!
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 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!
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!
Chuck and Christina got married on a beautiful October day at Mohonk Mountain House.
We started with getting ready shots of both Chuck and Christina.
Afterwards we moved to a first look with Christina and her Father and I'm not going to lie...I balled like a baby. As someone who is BFFs with her dad, I frequently cry at father-daughter moments that are as sweet as this.
Following that Christina and Chuck had their first look and then we moved on to explore the grounds of Mohonk. We walked the docks, got in a boat and frolicked around the gardens.
The bridal party shots were taken at the exit to the maze in the gardens of Mohonk Mountain House.
The two had a beautiful outdoor ceremony led by Christina's father which made the ceremony that much more intimate. Their ceremony had a view of the mountains that just could not be beat.
Then it was time to PAAAARRRRTTTYYYY!!
Venue: Mohonk Mountain House
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 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!!!
Meagan and Brad had their bridal session on a beautiful fall day. We started out shooting at Storm King State Park so we would have the foliage of the Hudson Valley and then headed over to the Moodna Viaduct to get the sunset and some more foliage. A lot of people ask me; " What exactly is a bridal session?" Well, this is it! We get together prior to the wedding (or after) and take pictures in your wedding attire. It's a much more relaxed session than your wedding day and we get to go around to wherever you would like! Don't want anyone to see your dress? You can either buy a different white maxi or I can save the photos and not post them until after the wedding! The florals were done by Christina Smith of Tame Florals and they are a beautiful fall arrangement!
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!
Lilly & Mike had their engagement shoot where their wedding will be held. During their engagement shoot we got to hang out with Lilly's awesome horse. I got to pet a dog and a lot of horses. I meaaannnnnn...can you get any better than that??
Meagan and Brad chose to have their engagement session at Stonecrop Gardens. Stonecrop is one of my favorite locations! You have everything from greenhouses to cool architecture to beautiful gardens. During their engagement session, we were completely surrounded with beautiful butterflies! It truly was a beautiful day!
