Oh…New York in Fall!!! People live for what it’s made of: crunching leaves on the sidewalk, all things made of apples, that whip of chill in the air, the trip down into the basement (or out to your parents house in Jersey) to switch out your closets with all the cold weather clothes, and GREY….seemingly forever, now grey. I’m going to be honest with you, I’m not a huge fan of Fall. I don’t like it because of what it implies, which is the long, cold winter that lies just on the other side of you, Fall. But because this is a blog about couples who are happy and in love, I’ll try to bring it back around. (= If you’re in love and you’ve got someone to cozy in with you, Fall is not so bad. Especially if you’re engaged and you live in the City that is located at the exact Center of the Universe, New York. Seriously, Brooke and Joe could care less about Winter or Fall. They are going to blaze through it along with their super snuggly kitty, Scout, to keep them warm. They are on a countdown – because as soon as the cold weather lifts, it will be time for their New York City Wedding at the Boathouse in Central Park…and I can’t wait! Congrats you two, and thanks for choosing me to capture every single moment. Hugs! ♥♥♥
When Stacey and Andrew first reached out to me about Wedding Photography it was from Hong Kong….they had the chance to live and work out there for a few years and they snatched up the opportunity immediately! Of course I knew that I already loved them, based on this one fact alone. I’m so envious of anyone who gets the chance to pack it all up and go experience another culture….and then actually DOES IT! But lucky for me, they came back…and now they’re living their dream in the City by the Bay. Also, not a bad gig. (: Their playful nature and mutual love is what makes their pictures fun to look at. This little shoot happened right on the street where they live in San Francisco.
When I first spoke with Marcy about photographing the wedding at The Boathouse she said “…you’re going to love my daughter, Jenna! …she’s sweet and cute and bubbly and full of energy – and she looks a little bit like Lauren Conrad…” First I thought, sounds like a win/win situation for me. And then I thought….don’t all mom’s say sweet things like that about their daughters??? Well, when I finally got to meet Jenna in person I realized this was not false advertising. Not only is Jenna sweet and cute and bubbly, but she’s probably one of THE sweetest, THE cutest and THE bubbliest people I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting! I immediately fell in love when she started talking fashion…this is the girl who enlightened me on the subject of arm parties and the Man Repeller. I taught her about the ‘BOOTY TOOCH’ (thanks Tyra). And the conversation just spun off from there. What I kept thinking is, how lucky these two beautiful people are to have found each other! I’m especially lucky to be the one who gets to photograph it!
