West Village Engagement Session

As much as I have a weakness for a good love sesh on the beach, there’s something so alluring about engagement sessions in the city. Maybe it’s the quiet love amongst the hustle and bustle or the endlessly charming backdrops, but I love ‘em. And when Judy Pak is behind the lens, I adore them even more. These two college sweeties are pure proof—see their city lovin’ right here.

From the beautiful Bride…Evan and I met at Syracuse University freshman year in art class. We instantly became good friends having a lot in common; both being from Massachusetts, having a passion for art and design, food and travel. We started dating after junior year of college and lived together in the West Village during our summer internships. It was the best decision we ever made.

We had so much fun exploring the city together​ every day was a new adventure. We ​were in love and our romance flourished. ​We could not think of a more appropriate backdrop for our engagement photos to be taken.

From Julie Pepin Photography This wedding was one of my most favorite wedding’s that I’ve been lucky enough to cover. It was a very small, very intimate and emotional day starting at day break on the Brooklyn Bridge and ending with a late morning wedding in the NYC Court House.

Erica and Braden chose New York City because they spent most of their time together in New York and had a lot of memories there. Erica was moving away after having lived in Brooklyn for 4 years so this wedding was their last New York hoorah. They wanted a small “elopement style” wedding with just their families so they chose to get married in City Hall.

One of my favorite details was Erica’s engagement ring. She wanted a raw, uncut diamond for her engagement ring, which was not an easy thing to find. The ring was specially made by Laura Treloar of Specimental Design. Because the couple had such a short engagement, they decided to keep it pretty simple by just going to David’s Bridal for Erica’s dress and Braden’s suit was from Men’s Wearhouse. The leather jacket Erica wore she found thrifting with her friends at Tokio 7 consignment in the East Village. The day before the wedding, they went to the New York City Flower Market and selected all of the flowers they thought they would need, and used them to make Erica’s bouquet and head piece.

One of the most special parts of the day, was that we started at sunrise on the Brooklyn Bridge and because of that, we felt like we had the whole city to ourselves. It was incredible to be in New York City and feel like Erica and Braden were the only two people on the planet : )

Adorable NYC Engagement Session

Let me just start out by saying that these two are adorable.  They have the sweetest love story (high school sweethearts), most amazing proposal (Paris) and jaunted around the city streets of NYC for one incredible engagement session.  In other words?  They are basically perfection.  See their gorgeous images captured by Alicia Swedenborg right here.

From the Bride…Matt and I met during freshman year of high school through mutual friends. Our friendship blossomed sophomore year when we were on the tennis team together and sat next to each other in History class. In class, we passed notes instead of learning about history. I blame Matt for my lack of knowledge on the French Revolution. We started dating two weeks after my 16th birthday and have been inseparable ever since.

Matt proposed last September in Paris. It was early in the morning the second day of our trip when we went on a run through the Jardin des Tuileries. I stopped to admire the beautiful garden and commented about how romantic and secluded it was so early in the morning. I even teased Matt and said, “Bet you wish you would’ve brought a ring!” He laughed and we continued on through the garden. When I stopped again to take a few pictures Matt surprised me and said, “Actually I did bring a ring…” I turned around to see him down on his knee with a beautiful ring in his hands. Then he asked me the most important question of both of our lives. For the rest of our trip I got to use my new favorite French word fiancé!
