rebecca & warren {love}

Rebecca and Warren came in from Washington D.C. to do their engagement session, and we lucked out with a GORGEOUS evening. These two were so fun to hang out with, and were up for anything. Frankly, they made our job easy.;)

We can’t wait to witness them saying their “I-Do’s” next weekend!

engagement at the farm {film}

I was so excited to receive these scans back as this was our first engagement session that we also shot with film.  You may remember Lauren and Ian’s engagement session in a recent post.  It was a brilliant summer evening and we had a great time with this couple out at the farm.

All images taken with our Contax 645 camera with Fuji Pro 400H film.

Lauren & Ian {love}

We had a CRAZY spring and summer this year first filled with intense rain, and then with intense HEAT. This poor couple were about ready to give up on an engagement session altogether. They were our only reschedule of the year, and it wasn’t until our *4th* try that the weather finally cooperated…..But the 4th was the winner.

They wanted a country/rustic feel for their session. After scouting for days around town looking for the perfect spot, we ended out on the land where I grew up. These were taken on my parent’s and our kind neighbor’s property. It’s the first session we’ve done out there, and we just loved every second.

Thanks Lauren and Ian for your extreme patience with Mother Nature. We think it was worth the wait! ;)  Can’t wait for October 1st!

Marianne & Ryan, NYC {day-in-the life}

When Marianne and Ryan asked if they could fly us out to New York City and photograph them for their engagement session, we were thrilled! We ended up shooting a “day in the life” for them, and spent the day walking around and exploring the city through their eyes. I must say, their eyes are quite similar to ours, as the majority of what drew them places, was food. ;)They knew the best places to go, being big ol’ foodies themselves. From breakfast at a Euro-inspired cafe, visiting a couple farmers’ markets, time hanging in the park with their loveable dog Bruno, to a night cruise down the Hudson- we had a day packed with some amazingness that can only be found in the beautiful and unique NYC.

Marianne and Ryan, you two were such wonderful hosts, and just all around amazing people to hang with!! We can’t wait until November 5th!
