A Winter Engagement Session at the Brooklyn Bridge, New York City Fine Art Engagement Photography on Film

This winter has been especially brutal here in NYC with temperatures regularly dipping into the teens or below.  However one beautiful morning in February the temperatures reached back up to the low 30's (which felt practically balmy) and I headed over to the Brooklyn Bridge for an early morning engagement session with this super sweet couple.  My favorite part of cold weather engagement sessions are the opportunity for lots of snuggles and of course lots of laughter.

Jannie and Ivan's Wedding at My Moon, Williamsburg, Brooklyn Fine Art Wedding Photography on Film

Jannie and Ivan's wedding was a lovely intimate affair at My Moon Restaurant in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.  Jannie and Ivan were the masters of DIY and brought together so many personal touches like the feathered escort cards Jannie made herself to the hundreds of books stacked on the tables as centerpieces, which Jannie got from the publishing house she works at.  The morning started off with a beautiful tea ceremony at an air bnb rental (which is such a great idea for a getting ready space) then off to Prospect Park for portraits and then a beautiful outdoor Ceremony at My Moon followed by dinner and dancing inside the restaurant.

Sam and Matt's City Wedding at the Bowery Hotel and Lafayette Restaurant, New York City Fine Art Wedding Photography

Sam and Matt's intimate city wedding was the perfect representation of everything I love about New York City!  Sam and Matt met at my alma mater, NYU, and wanted their wedding to take place in the beautiful place where they fell in love.  NYU doesn't really have much of a campus, instead the whole neighborhood of Greenwich Village is really where the heart of the school lies, centering around Washington Square Park.  Sam and Matt started their day by getting ready at the beautiful Bowery Hotel followed by family portraits in Central Park and then a lovely intimate ceremony in the wine cellar of Lafeyette Restaurant surrounded by their closest friends and family.  Sam has impeccable taste and I was so in love with all of the special touches she brought to her day, like her black diamond Anna Sheffield ring, gorgeous invitation suite by Antiquaria and that stunning Nicole Miller gown!  Her friends have a tradition of gifting each other something to include in the bouquet and they gave her vintage subway tokens that were wrapped in the ribbons- doesn't get much cuter or classic NYC than that!  See more of their lovely wedding on Style Me Pretty!
