My last session before Corona Virus took hold of all of our lives, I got together with Austin & Colby for their Engagement Portrait Session. They brought along their sweet fur babies to join in the fun. Hermann Park served as the perfect setting for this young couple in love.

Allison is one of the most beautiful people I know. Growing up I always wanted to be just like her and her older sister, Laura. They were the epitome of elegance, not to mention they had the best personality; funny, witty, clever! As we progressed into adulthood they remained role models to me, but also became my friends. Its crazy to think back to our young ballerina days... Laura and I are now married and soon enough Allison will be joining the club. Soon after she and Brian got engaged last year she approached me and said "I don't have any wedding plans made yet but I know I want YOU to do our engagement portraits!"
Robert and his girlfriend Bekka were in the city this week for a fun holiday trip. Bekka had told Robert that she'd always wanted to skate in Rockefeller Center's Rink, which spawned a grand idea for Robert. The Rock has a special Engagement Package that after your 90 minute group skate they clear the ice for you to skate to center rink and pop the question! Now is all of this wasn't romantic enough, Robert wanted to have the moment captured via photography which is where I came in.

From the moment I met Veronica, I knew she was a cool cat. She and my husband, along with their siblings, were all childhood friends and recently reconnected when Veronica came to visit her sister who lives here in NYC. A few months ago after David popped the question, Veronica reached out to me about booking me for an Engagement Session on my next trip to TX. So last month on an incredibly warm and humid summer day, I met the happy couple in Galveston and we had a marvelous time!
So let me tell you about Veronica and David- I've never met a more giddy couple! Through the course of their session there was so much laughter and joy and it was plain to see how in love they were. There were many times that I would be trying to give them direction and they wouldn't even hear me because of how lost in their little world they were. It was perfectly romantic! I felt incredibly honored that they entrusted me in capturing these special photos, ones I hope they will treasure for many, many years to come.
