Before the leaves began to change and Fall was officially in New York, Sara and John wanted to have their engagement session in Central Park. These two have been together for over eight years and are so excited to get married in a few short weeks at the iconic Rainbow Room. Sara and John make each other laugh all the time. John has a great sense of humor and even laughs at my jokes, so you know he's a great guy! We visited the Belvedere Castle and Shakespeare's Garden inside of the park. I simply adore these two and cannot wait for their wedding! xo

Last October, I had the wonderful opportunity to travel to Puerto Rico for a destination wedding at the El Conquistador Waldorf Astoria Resort. It was my first time to Puerto Rico and I was so excited to spend time on the beach, soak in the sun and photograph a gorgeous beach wedding. I loved the daydreamy skies that were filled with white puffy clouds that seem to just float over the water. During our stay, we took a ferry a private island to use the resorts private beach. We sat under a thatched umbrella and swam in the bluest, warmest water I've been in since Mexico. I can't wait to share images from the wedding but for now, here are few of my favorite travel photos from Puerto Rico. I can't wait to go back and photograph another destination wedding in Puerto Rico. Enjoy!

Laura and Reeve's relationship spans over the course of a decade. They have literally grown up together and on a wonderfully warm day in September, they became husband and wife. Their Fall wedding was held at the Lighthouse at Chelsea Piers in New York City. Laura instantly fell in love with her stunning lace Ines Di Santo wedding dress. Her mother handmade a gorgeous lace trimmed veil as a gift to her beloved daughter on her wedding day. The bride also carried her mother's vintage clutch and wore her "something-new" gold Jimmy Choo shoes. Reeve waited patiently at the end of the aisle for his bride to enter the iconic catholic cathedral in SoHo. As the happy couple exchanged vows, then rings, the church roared with cheers once they pronounced husband and wife! After the ceremony, the light at the Chelsea Piers park was simply breathtaking as we took their formal and bridal party portraits along the water. The couple treated their guests to a boat cruise around the city before heading over to the Lighthouse to start their wedding celebration. As they clinked their champagne flutes, laughed at speeches and danced with their parents, guests were treated to music by the fantastic Hank Lane. So, how do you end a perfect day marrying the man of your dreams? How about your own private fireworks show along the Hudson River. It was simply spectacular! I'm so honored I could be part of Laura and Reeve's wedding day and capture their memories to cherish and love forever. Congratulations Newlyweds!
