Spring nights are made for pretty pink trees and bike rides with your future hubby/wifey! I met Ashley and Tyler at Liberty State Park at just the right time, all of the beautiful trees were on their last few days of the spring bloom.

Tyler's passion and career is is working on bikes so naturally they just had to include that for their engagement session, how fun! I had a blast with them as they rode around the grounds...Tyler helping Ashley along the way :) I can't wait to capture your wedding...

Lisa and Ken were another brave couple that joined me for their engagement session in sub-zero weather! We came prepared with hand warmers and all! I met Lisa and Ken at the Plaza Hotel and then we went over to Central Park, which was surprisingly crowded for how cold it was! 

Central Park was a special place to Lisa and Ken as it was the very first time Ken came to visit Lisa in the states. Keep reading below about how their loved trumped their long distance international relationship!

So ex...

What do you when its 20 degrees outside? Shoot an awesome couple of course! :) Liz and Joe were such troopers, especially Liz in her dress! We may have been numb, but we still had fun! Liz and Joe picked a local landmark for their engagement shoot, the court house in Somerville NJ, and I can see why! 

Liz and Joe have such a sweet story. They met back in high school. Joe played football with Liz's brother but it wasn't until later in life that they re-connected last summer after Liz moved back to...

Shira and Mike met at Columbia University many years ago and have been together ever since! Shira is a fierce ad tech advertising executive and Mike, with his entrepreneurial spirit is embarking on his next new business venture. They...

We've been so blessed with our little Parker who is almost 3 weeks old already! Before we know it he'll be asking for the keys to the car. I just want him to stay small and snuggly forever! I took some time off from posting but back at it this week! 

I met Janet and Gus at the NJ Botanical Garden over the summer for their engagement shoot, what an awesome location covered in weeping willow tress, lush gardens and fountains. It was a super hot day but that didn't stop these two love birds from hav...

I loved finally getting to meet Marisa and Dan and I'm so excited to photograph their wedding in February! They were so in love and just made each other laugh every second :) We decided to do their engagement shoot at Liberty State Park to give them an urban yet nature feel. I just love coming here for shoots. Their story is below!

How did you meet?

At a Halloween party hosted by Dan's best friend in 2009. 

How did Dan pop the question? 

Two days before Marisa's birthday, Dan arranged for the pair t...

Engagement sessions are all about getting to know your clients and your clients getting to know you before the big day! They can be formal, silly or as simple as capturing the love and joy in your day to day as a couple. That is exactly what Steph and Christian decided to do! 

We started our session in Astoria on the rooftop of their apartment building where they popped some bubbly. Steph found these super cute champagne glasses from
