STEPHANIE AND VAN’S WEDDING | NEW PALTZ, NY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER


Fun
.  Goofy.  In love.  These three ingredients were overflowing for Stephanie and Van’s wedding.  Both are SUNY New Paltz alumni just like me, and naturally, photographing such down-to-earth people is always a blast.  Especially ones forgoing the obligatory, “smushing cake in the face” shot with the, “stabbing cake knife into heart” shot.  That should tell you a little something about the two.  😉  We started out in Newburgh where Stephanie got ready, and then moved to Barnaby’s in New Paltz where they had their ceremony and a nice, intimate reception.  The 25′ ceilings there, plus streaming late afternoon light coming in from the huge windows made for an opportunity to create some truly dramatic images!  Congrats again, you two!!  =)

so romantic.

CAROLINE AND JUSTIN’S STEVENS INSTITUTE ENGAGEMENT SESSION | HOBOKEN, NJ WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

Caroline and Justin were the first couple to sign me in 2012, so it’s only fitting that their e-session would be one of the first few as well.  You’ll be hard-pressed to find a cuter couple than these two.  Not even a bit of rain and gloomy weather dampened their obvious affection for each other during their engagement session, and I’m sure you’ll agree after taking a look at their photos!  Stevens Institute of Technology was where Justin went to graduate school, so we started on their beautiful campus overlooking the Manhattan skyline, and then moved on to Elysian Park where he asked Caroline to be his wife.  It’s such an honor photographing two truly wonderful people.  The first thing they did when we met for the e-session was hand me a gift for our future bundle of joy!  That should give some insight into how awesome these two are.  Can’t wait for your wedding later this year!  Also, thanks to Chi-Chi for being my lighting assistant for (possibly) the last time before the baby arrives!
