Connect with us on social media!

Sharing images as a wedding photographer used to be incredibly easy.  You had your website, maybe a Facebook page, probably a blog.  All new content immediately got a blog post…and that was pretty much it!  Now there are so many ways to share images, be social, and connect with clients and friends.

To see daily updates of our current weddings and images, follow us on Instagram.  I adore Instagram, and only post wedding and portrait-related images on our business account.  Since we don’t currently really use Snapchat (I’m susanstripling there, but rarely post), Instagram is the best way to get an overview of our current work!

Central Park Engagement

There is nothing more classic than a fall engagement session in Central Park.  The trees are starting to change, the light is glowing and warm, and the wretched summer heat gives way to cooler autumn days.

We started the session near Bethesda Terrace. Right in the heart of the park at 72nd Street, Bethesda Fountain is one of the most iconic locations for a portrait session in all of New York City.

Then we were off to the oldest cast iron bridge in the US, Bow Bridge. I love how the light falls on the bridge at this time of day!

The hustle and bustle of New York City extends even to the peaceful park. Bethesda Terrace is always teeming with people. The business of the scene makes the quiet moments found there even quieter and sweeter.

We walked around and chased the light, finding great quiet spaces with beautiful, glowing sunlight.

The Lake in Central Park is quiet, charming, and especially gorgeous on a lovely fall day.

Guzey and Ali are so sweet together, kind and tender together at all times.

Sometimes it’s not about the location, the famous building in the background, or the quirkiness of the space and pose. Sometimes it’s just about a sweet moment between a couple that is so incredibly compelling.

The Naumburg Bandshell is normally crazily crowded, but that day we had it all to ourselves.

Guzey and Ali, thank you for spending the afternoon with me! It was great to get to know you a bit more, to spend a gorgeous few hours wandering around the delicious light, and to document this time in your engagement!







Brooklyn Engagement Session

There are two places in New York that I truly love shooting at : Loeb Boathouse in Central Park, and Brooklyn Bridge Park in DUMBO.  Since Samantha and Adam are getting married in 2015 at the Loeb Boathouse, it only made sense that Brooklyn Bridge Park should be the location for their engagement session.  DUMBO is an acronym for Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass, and my favorite part of the whole neighborhood is the beautiful park situated between the Manhattan and Brooklyn bridges.  Here are a few of my favorites from Samantha and Adam’s summer engagement session!

Brooklyn Bridge Park Engagement
“Have you seen the overpass with YES under it?” Samantha asked me. “No, where is that?” I said in return. Turns out this completely perfect location is less than a block from the subway station that I exit every. time. I. go. to. that. neighborhood. How had I never seen this before?

The last time I had been to this part of the neighborhood, it was under construction. Thankfully all of the tarps and caution tape were stripped away, and we were able to shoot. I love finding new areas in familiar places!

I love finding quiet parts in busy places.
Manhattan Engagement Photography
“I know this is a gross alley. And it’s really dirty down there. And people are looking at us like we’re insane. But can you go stand there because I promise it will make a really, really great picture.”

Celebration Florida Engagement : Taylor + Joe

It was great fun to revisit my old home state of Florida for Taylor and Joe’s engagement session in the wonderful Celebration town center.  I am so looking forward to their wedding later this year at the Walt Disney World Resort!

I do miss that gorgeous Florida sunset light!

Thank you so much, Taylor and Joe, for braving the fountain and standing super close to the water!
