Have you ever met someone and instantly feel like you have known them forever? Well that is how I felt when I met Adrienne + Chris. I swear from the second we said Hello we were instantly friends.  #winning

I had the pleasure of photographing their wedding Labor Day weekend 2012. (lets not bring up the fact that I have been a blog slacker *cough*)

In lieu of their upcoming 1 year anniversary what better way to remind them of their special day then with a wedding blog post! I spoke with Chris earlier today and I asked him: “What are your thoughts on the 1st year of marriage?”

He responded: Every time I think of Adrienne the lyrics to our first dance comes to mind

Happy Anniversary My Loves!! Wishing you a lifetime of happiness together!

Helen and Kevin met at his housewarming party in 2008, two years before their first date. When they met the timing wasn’t quite right- Helen had just finished taking the Bar and was enjoying her freedom & he was still in a relationship. But over the next two years, they would run into each other all over New York City and through mutual friends. Then in July of 2010 they ran into each other around Helen’s birthday and hit it off! The rest, as they say, is history.
Kevin proposed in September of 2012, when they went on a trip through Central Europe. They are excited to start their lives together and will be getting married in Miami, Florida early August. It was a pleasure capturing the love between them! They get a huge hi-five for bearing the bitter cold this particular Saturday morning on the Upper West Side. 🙂

This is not the first time Svenja + Heiko have graced my blog.

Over the past 4 years we have had quite a few shoots, celebrated birthdays, and formed a great friendship. As we prepared for our annual holiday shoot I got a special email from Heiko letting me know he was going to propose to Svenja on that day. I couldn’t help squealing with excitement and once I regained my composure I gave Heiko my thoughts on how we should capture it. I later suggested to Svenja that ice skating would be a fun background for the holiday photos and she agreed, little did she know of the master plan! 🙂

We started on the grounds of the Mid Manhattan Library. I am absolutely smitten by this building everything about it makes my heart melt.  We chatted about the weather, upcoming holiday plans, and our love for Starbucks. We then walked around to the back where the Bryant Park Pond is located. I secretly was so nervous and anxious that “the moment” was so close. Once in the perfect position I gave Heiko the thumbs up and it HAPPENED! 😉


Congrats to the both of you!! I can’t wait till the wedding!!

Ohh and Svenja’s birthday was this week!!! Happy Birthday my darling!
