Tim & Gabriela's Intimate Seaside Wedding

Tim & Gabriela got married on November 25, 2017 in beautiful Cancun Mexico. It was the most beautiful intimate wedding I've ever attended or photographed. Only the closest of family and friends were there to celebrate such a special occasion.

 Gabby was my best friend in high school, although the friendship started much earlier than that. I met Gabby when I moved to Long Island at the age of 13. She was one of my first friends and our friendship has lasted ever since. I can't tell you how many memories I have made with this crazy girl and if I could share old myspace photos in this post I sure would (though I'm going to spare you from the gelled down hair, big earrings and throwback photo poses). From our Twilight crazed phase to our many many sleepovers, to Gabby teaching me how to use a razor because I was terrified of using one, this girl has always been by my side. I'd crash her Italian class during my free period (which somehow the teacher was totally fine with) just so we could hang out. We share so many memories together!  But enough about us I mean, this is a post about her and her boo after all!  

Gabby & Tim have been together since high school, when we were just seniors. They were inseparable and made it through the ups and downs of high school and even had a long distance relationship while Tim went off to the military after graduation. These two are so loyal to each other that literally nothing, I mean nothing could get in between them.  It was so special for me to capture this day for them. We spent the whole weekend in Cancun just celebrating their relationship with the best of friends. It was one of the most memorable weekends of my life and I am truly honored I was able to share their wedding day joy in more ways than one!  

Brandon & Lisa's Brooklyn Proposal

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to capture the most sweetest proposal at Brooklyn Bridge park. Brandon reached out to me back in March, telling me he had plans to propose to his long time girlfriend Lisa. Cool! I was so down for surprise proposals. They are super exciting and I don't know about you, but I always get a rush right before it happens. I try to figure out if I should hide, or if I should just act like a tourist taking photos of the skyline (I went with the latter on this one). Anyways back to our engagement story. Brandon had told me he wanted to propose on a Saturday in May, and had been sending me photos of the location where he wanted to pop the question. Everything seemed like it was good to go. In fact I was a little nervous about the weather because according to my weather app it was set to thunderstorm that day but it turned out to be such a beautiful sunny evening! What a relief! While we were waiting for his soon to be fiancé to arrive, he told me how he had planned this day for months! The day started by him leaving his house early in the morning. He left a note with some flowers on a table for Lisa. The note had instructions for her to dress up and be ready later that day at 5:45. He even had her outfit picked out down to her red bottom Christian Louboutin shoes! (I must say Brandon has pretty good taste.) He arranged for an Uber to pick her up from their UES apartment, meanwhile she had no idea where the Uber was taking her. Once she arrived to the park, he met her at her car and walked her to this beautiful spot overlooking the sky line, where there were luckily very few people and popped the question there! Obviously she said yes, I mean her face says it all! We took some time to get a few portraits and after we said goodbye, they made their way to an engagement party that Brandon had planned with close relatives and friends. Talk about a proposal story!
