Wedding : Stephanie + Alex @ The Bridgewater Manor — Bridgewater, NJ

Hello Friends,
Meet Stephanie + Alex. This beautiful couple tied the knot this past November, making their affair our final wedding of the season. And seriously, I can’t even begin explaining what an incredibly season finale that was for us! Talk about going out with a bang! Lol. From the fun times the couple shared with their bridal party during their time getting ready, to the nerves and excitement visible during their first look, Stephanie and Alex’s wedding day was full of love, laughter, tender moments and too much fun. There were moments shared between the couple where I seriously found myself holding back tears. There were even more moments where I desperately wished there was a spare bridesmaid dress somewhere just so I could join their wedding party! Stephanie and Alex have a son, and the bond they share with him is beyond precious. This super sweet and down to earth couple has looked forward to their wedding day for a long time and were beyond excited to start their lives as husband and wife.
We are so grateful to Stephanie and Alex for allowing us to be a part of their perfect day and wish them both a lifetime of love and happiness!

A day with the Bloom’s | Brooklyn, NY

Hi Friends!

We are taking a quick detour from our beloved wedding posts to share this super sweet family session that Elkin photographed a few weeks ago. I have been in touch with Adriana for a little while ago. She first contacted us through our Facebook page about doing a newborn session for her sweet, now 7 month old daughter Jade. This was right around the time that we decided to stop photographing newborns. I told Adriana that we would love to reconnect with her around Jade’s 6th month mark when she was able to sit on her own. Sure enough at that time she reached out and we finally settled on a date. We had agreed to the shoot at her house. Elkin’s had an idea about doing a lifestyle family session for a while now. He pretty much wanted to document “a day in their life”. The Bloom’s have a pretty awesome place, which also has access to an awesome rooftop. With the unseasonably warm December weather, we decided to shoot up to the rooftop and take some photos highlighting an amazing NYC skyline. Here are a few photos from that day!

Thank you Josh + Adriana! We had such a fun time with your beautiful family!
