The first time we met Katie and Mike, we all just clicked. It was easy to sit and chat about everything in general along with wedding plans. They were excited, beaming, hopeful and looking forward to having a full year. Both were starting new paths with work and school, moving to a new home, and then eventually, battling wedding uncertainties as the year progressed. And still, they kept smiling. Even while they made the difficult decision to postpone, they kept lighthearted and made the pact to still get married this year. Because at the end of it, it’s been all about moving forward hand in hand.
The thing we love the most about this year has been to see our couples persevere and pull through. The weight of general life is dragging from time to time but throw in a life twisting pandemic and you’re left all out of sorts. And yet, it’s refreshing to have everyone stand up in the middle embracing it all. To keep moving forward while making plans. To commit to love and marriage in whichever way they feel is right for them. And to just smile through it all.
Katie and Mike – we hope you love this blog as much as we do. We hope it brings you back to the breathless moments of your special celebration. We can’t wait to see you both again in the new year and have a chance to do it all over again!

We decided to give it a few days after last week’s celebration before sharing Jenna & Michael’s engagement shoot. For one thing, after the holiday eating everyone could use a few days to settle in. And for another, since last week we have been mostly focused only on family and figured everyone a few more days of just that couldn’t hurt anyone. But now scrolling through this shoot, we couldn’t be more excited it’s live!

Jenna has got to be one of the most patient and kind souls we’ve met. She’s full of laughter which spills out easily between jokes that Michael quips. Together they’re one of the sweetest matches and it’s heartwarming to see how happy they make each other. This shoot embodies everything we’ve come across this year – hope, kindness, and perseverance. Like so many couples, Jenna and Michael have had to push back their celebration to next year, but not once have they lamented about the situation or having to wait another year. Their strength is rock solid, and we absorbed some of that positivity to bolster our own self patience.

We’re hoping that there is indeed a light at the end of this (long) tunnel and when we reflect on people like Jenna and Michael, we just realize it’s all the closer to reaching. We cannot wait until next year to watch these beautiful souls tie the knot!

It’s always heartwarming to hear from past couples when they’re embarking on a new adventure – whether it be a business, travels, or adding a family member! So when we heard from Lisa and Krishna a bit back about planning for a maternity shoot, we were overjoyed. Immediately we began thinking of locations and were happy when they chose Waveny Park. Coming from New York, they trusted us entirely.

The day was mellow, but an occasional chill reminded us that the crisp autumn was definitely in the air. We explored the park, catching up all the while on the past two year’s of comings and goings. It’s amazing how much happens in such a short span of time and yet, you hardly can expect how much is about to change in just a few weeks. Lisa and Krishna are so ready to be parents! Their little one is surrounded to the brim, and still there is a bit more love to give!

Congratulations to you both again, Lisa and Krishna! Enjoy this time, enjoy your little one, enjoy the holidays – this time is like no other!
