Cassidy and Jared’s Larchmont, NY Wedding

July 30, 2015

Pals to pact to perfect – Cassidy & Jared

When we shot Cassidy and Jared’s engagement photos a few months ago, we wondered if seltzer would be popped along with champagne at their wedding, since a seltzer errand played a key role in Jared’s proposal. We totally forgot to look– our eyes were glued to Cassidy’s swirling cutout-back Vera Wang gown and self-made rose and lavender bouquets. Twelve years after they made a college pact to wed if they were still single when Cassidy turned 30, they sealed it at Larchmont Temple, with Cassidy vowing to love her “rock and sweet big bunny.” Here’s wishing they hop into a beautiful future.

Tarrytown, NY Pre-Wedding Photoshoot for Ivona & Tony

July 28, 2015

Clear skies ahead – Ivona & Tony – Pre-Wedding Photography

A rainy forecast means luck for droughts, deserts, and one specific couple. Three of Ivona and Tony’s milestones were drenched: their first Manhattan roof-top garden meeting, their one-year anniversary at that same romantic spot, and this summer’s pre-wedding photo shoot in Tarrytown. Ivona’s eyes may have gotten wet when Tony proposed at that anniversary dinner, but not Tony’s knee – it was pouring! The kneeling  tradition was postponed ’til another day, though next to a flat tire instead of a rooftop garden! Whatever works, we say. And by the way, the only waterworks on their July 4th Beacon wedding will be tears of joy.

Tarrytown, NY – Keith & Stephanie’s Engagement Photo Session

May 30, 2015

Stephanie & Keith – Beneath a tree, love blooms

The Rockefeller Center tree is a tradition, and it became Stephanie and Keith’s too. They saw it the first year they dated, and the next two after that. That third time, while the lights twinkled on the tree, a diamond twinkled from Keith’s pocket. Now that’s what we call a happy holiday! Stephanie shouldn’t have been too shocked–  threes had been lucky for them before. They’d been dating almost three years, and their first dates were three in a row. It all started with dinner, when they talked until the restaurant closed for the night. We’re romantics, so we like to think it was about 3 a.m.!

Chic Couple’s Photo Session in Chelsea, NY

May 19, 2015

Cassidy & Jared – Crushes to Candles – Engagement Photographs

It started with Cassidy’s college crush, and ended with Jared’s candlelight proposal. In between were 12 years, seven states, and one pact that said if they weren’t married by the time she turned 30, they’d wed. Well, she’s 30, and thanks to his Facebook contact, they’ll be wedded in June at Larchmont Temple. They should pop some seltzer along with champagne, since Jared’s request that she run out for seltzer was his ruse for setting their apartment aglow with candles and a diamond ring. Now that’s the kind of errand we’d all like more of!

Kristina and Chris’s Engagement Party

May 4, 2015

Surrounded by water, love flows – Engagement Party

Water may bring life, but in Kristina and Chris’ case, it also brings love. They met in the Hamptons, Chris proposed on a dock there, they had their engagement party at Manhattan’s Water Club and the bridal shower at Rye’s American Yacht Club. “It was pretty much love at first sight,” says Kristina, and 3 1/2 years later, they will wed, where else!? In view of the sea, on Bermuda. We photographed Kristina’s sister’s engagement party a few years ago, also at the Yacht Club, and are thrilled to catch this next wave!

Julia Spenser’s Bat Miztvah

May 4, 2015

We are Family: I Have all My Brothers and Me – Bat Miztvah Photos

Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, like weddings, are another family milestone we love to cover, and sometimes we’re lucky enough to feel like we’re members! Like with the Spensers. Over 8 years, we’ve shot all the son’s celebrations, while little sister Julia waited in the wings. Now that the angelic toddler has grown to a 13-year-old stunner, the wait’s over. Mazel tov, Julia! It’s these connections that, professionally and personally, bring us pleasure and joy.

Kristin & Bryan’s Engagement

May 3, 2015

Stormy Weather to Sunny Skies – Engagement Photos

Candlelit rooms are usually an indulgence, not a necessity, but it worked for Kristin and Bryan. That was their backdrop during Hurricane Sandy, when Bryan was left without power. Just two days after meeting, their meals came from Kristin’s coolers instead of restaurants, their movies from her laptop instead of the multiplex. When the electricity returned, theirs was already flowing! The power surged this past Christmas Eve with Bryan’s proposal, and sparks will be flying this fall at their wedding in Montauk.

Noelle and Ronald

Biology is Destiny, Final Round – Wedding Photographs

Nine months ago, we were there for Round 1, their engagement shoot, but time hasn’t dampened Noelle and Ronald’s passion. I guess we shouldn’t have been surprised they’ve been together since college, when their passion was science before it was each other. A shared biology lab led to a dorm-kitchen spaghetti dinner, and love was next on the menu. The final course: a sumptuous wedding at Scarsdale’s Church of Saint Pius X and a reception at New Rochelle’s Glen Island Harbour Club, with a side of sunny skies and crystalline Long Island Sound waters.

Hila & Gil

September 19, 2014

Promised land to promised love – Wedding Photography

After Hila’s family made their own exodus out of Israel to New York, Gil made his own in 2010, trusty guitar in hand. And they’d be traveling a lot more, Hila with a date to see Gil’s new band, Gil running to find her after the show not knowing they’d left early. Next stop: Brooklyn, finally connecting at a friend’s party, where a blizzard left them stranded for 3 days. The adventure continued with Hila’s move to Bushwick and her need for a handyman. Trading guitar for toolbox, Gil rushed over and never left. Their next journey would be a move to Jersey City, and in August, a trip down the aisle at Bedford Corner’s Temple Shaaray Tefilah. See full gallery here.

Jackie & Derek

June 19, 2014

Playing to Win – Engagement Photos

Games are Jackie and Derek’s passion — but not the teary kind. All that stress and strategy is strictly on-screen, the dirty work done by Super Smash Brothers or in Final Fantasy. Off-screen, calm and kindness reign for this couple, who met in the quiet of the Tarrytown’s Warner Library and who work as artists (Derek) and stuffed-animal and doll designers (Jackie). We took their engagement photos surrounded by wildflowers in a sun-kissed meadow: a definite fantasy, but not the final one: their wedding is set for this coming June.
