Wedding : Melissa + John

Hi World!

Meet John and Melissa! Together, they are an awesome combination of short, [really] tall, super sweet and friendly, easy-going and too much fun! We met this awesome duo at our crossfit box — Crossfit Gotham: STAND UP! And like everyone there, they were nice enough to make us feel welcomed and at home right away. I am not exactly sure when it happened, but casually around the time they were looking for a photographer for their wedding, Melissa found out that Elkin WAS a wedding photographer – pretty awesome coincidence if I may say so myself! Soon enough, we were discussing wedding day details over passion tea lemonades at Starbucks and even sooner after, it was AUGUST 16TH – their wedding day. I could write a lot about their day, it was all so beautiful and a lot of fun. Seriously, too much fun! This entire bridal party, bride and groom included, just know to party. From the hotel, to the limo, to the reception, music and laughter was present everywhere. As much as I laughed, I wanted to cry! Seriously, lots of choking back tears during the first look and more during their ceremony! Three days ago, they celebrated their two-month anniversary, and we are wishing them all the love, happiness and blessings we wish them then! Thank you both for allowing Elkin and I to be a part of your special day! It will remain in our hearts forever!

Engagement : Jessie + Chase @ Liberty State Park

Hello Friends! 🙂

Meet Jessie + Chase. Second time’s the charm for this sweet couple and their engagement shoot. Rain literally dampened our first attempt at shooting; so much so that it was well over before it even started! We ended up rescheduling to what seemed like the sunniest day of the summer. Jessie and Chase decided on Liberty State Park as their location of choice. A pretty large park opposite Liberty and Ellis Island home to a huge Marina, a 9/11 Memorial and amazing views of the NYC skyline, amongst others.

Elkin , Jessie and chase set out to explore the park, while Lexie — Jessie and Chases’s fur baby and I– happily chased them around. 🙂 It was a beautiful sumer day spent with a lovely couple and a super sweet and energetic puppy!
