Wedding : Joe + Olivia <3 Prospect Park, Brooklyn NY

Hi Friends!

On Saturday July 28th, we had the pleasure of photographing Joe + Oliva’s special day. Olivia and Joe came to us by way of one of our all time favorite clients, Carolyn. You see, Carolyn and Oliva have been “BFFs” for a LONG time. I found out just how long during Carolyn’s awesome MOH speech, (total tear jerker btw) when she showed us a picture of two fresh-faced teenage girls. We arrived at Olivia’s home around noon on Saturday at a cozy and super welcoming apartment in one of my favorite neighborhoods in Brooklyn. Despite all the hormones in the air and all things “get wedding ready fab” throughout the apartment, there was a sense of calmness which I’ve yet to accept. [THE] Wedding day is supposed to be chaos right? Not with this bride! Olivia was genuinely one of the most laid back brides I have EVER met! She did make up for her lack of frenzy in HAPPY! She was so, so happy that NOTHING could “rain on her parade”, not even ACTUAL rain. So later, when it did rain, of course, she smiled her way through it. Actually, the entire bridal party did — we have pictures to prove it. Ha! This happiness was shared amongst all and continued to fill all parts of this special day; happy groom, happy family, happy friends.

Congratulations Joe + Olivia! May the rest of your lives be filled with all the love and happiness that we all experienced on that beautiful Saturday afternoon.

Studio : Tyler’s 1 year old cake smash session!

Hi Friends!

Meet our gorgeous new little buddy, Tyler. Tyler, mom & dad came over for his 1 year old cake-smash birthday session a couple of weeks ago. This session is what I came imagine a regular day at home with Tyler is like; lots of playtime, lots of singing and dancing, lots of laughs, lunch, dessert and even a little bath! We owe all of Tyler’s smiles to mom and dad and some of the silly faces they made for him. Thank you guys for coming over and sharing your family’s love with us.

Don’t know what to say other then: LOOK at this gorgeousness! Mom Erika and dad Luis are already making their baby girl Haile a fabulous “Little diva”. They trusted Helen at Bonito Design to make their vision come alive and hello! –Wouldn’t you? Again, this is all TOO beautiful, including the parents to be! Enjoy the photos! Elkin had so much fun capturing all the little details and the fun crowd, including some very familiar faces. 🙂

Thank you Erika + Luis for the opportunity to photograph such a joyous occasion!
