Intimate Brooklyn Brownstone Wedding

Well this took me quite a while to blog! Hayley & Collin’s Brooklyn wedding was the most perfect intimate wedding I’ve ever had the pleasure of photographing. Nestled in a Brooklyn brownstone, the ceremony was held in the beautiful backyard adorned with stringing lights and candles. These two have known each other since college, and decided that they wanted to be surrounded by only their closest family and friends. Hayley & Collin added a few personal touches to their wedding day. Hayley, a city planner, created the invites, which was a map of their Brooklyn neighborhood. She also sculpted the cute cake toppers which was modeled after their beloved frenchie Oliver. After the ceremony we hit some of their most favorite spots in Brooklyn, including the park where they take their little frenchie on walks (Oliver had a bog role in this wedding even though he couldn’t be there!). I can’t believe its been only a few short months since this magical wedding!

Kevin & Krista's Sandy hook engagement

I love celebrating milestones, especially in my business. Every small acomplishment is something to cheer about because it means you’re one step closer to your dreams than you were the day before. So when I hit one thousand followers on Instagram, I did what hopefully any other small business owner would do, I celebrated with a giveaway! I decided to give away one free engagement session to a lucky couple, and when Krista’s friend tagged her in the post, she entered herself. As fate would have it, after only a few weeks of getting engaged, her and Kevin won the session. They had spent many summers at Sandy Hook beach in New Jersey, and wanted their portraits in one of their favorite places. I had never been there before so I was excited for this new location and let me tell you it did not disappoint! We got there just in time for sunset portraits. Krista had cute little picnic set up, which happens to be one of her favorite ways to spend time with her fiancé, and it’s also how Kevin proposed to her! I can’t wait for their end of winter wedding in March!
