Liberty State Park | Eric+Martina Engaged

Written by Taylor on January 15
It was such a privilege to be able to shoot my own cousin’s wedding pictures. Martina and I go way back, all the way to before my 4th birthday party, when my dad dressed up like Batman and sent her screaming and weeping in terror at first sight of him. Liberty state park was one of those shoots that really surprised us. Darren and I had both been there many times, but once you go there with your eyes opened, and you start looking around for opportunities to shoot awesome photographs, the place comes alive. The four of us found some awesome scenery that we had walked or driven past a hundred times in the past, and never stopped to notice. A good lesson that when you stop to smell the flowers, you might just find a skyline filled with shimmering New York skyscrapers. Eric and Martina, we wish you all the love in the world in your blossoming new life together! Thanks for an awesome shoot.

It was Mary Anne and Rich’s idea to come to the Cloisters in New York City for their engagement shoot. Darren and I like to scout if we’re going to a new location and when we looked around the grounds outside this castle-like museum, we knew it was going to be an awesome engagement session. I think I might have come here for a school field trip once. I seem to remember tapestries.

The weather held up beautifully, and we had a fantastic time. In the course of the shoot, we witnessed a Shakespearean play on the grounds, an attempted mugging (not really but I swear he was eyeing my telephoto lens), and a rare moment of poetic poignancy, when a butterfly landed on Rich’s head, which I believe is seen in some cultures as a sign of beauty.

Rich and Mary Anne, thanks for an awesome awesome time! We wish you God’s best in your new lives together!!

Bridal Market 2010 for Weddings Unveiled Magazine

Written by Darren on November 10
Two weeks ago we got a call from Terri and Brooke, the editors of Weddings Unveiled Magazine. Bridal Market was coming up and their schedules were so packed that they needed an additional photographer to cover some of the events. Of course Taylor and I jumped at the opportunity to be involved, Bridal Market is HUGE, every major wedding publication covers it, and Weddings Unveiled is an awesome magazine! Thousands of beautiful dresses go down the runway, from designers like Vera Wang, Reem Acra, Amsale, Monique Lhuillier and Oscar de la Renta. So we were totally psyched to be able to shoot our first runway shows for Weddings Unveiled. I spent two days shooting for them, trekking around the city to different shows, accompanied by Anne Marie from Weddings Unveiled. For the shows that I couldn’t make it to, Emily accompanied awesome photographers Michael Norwood and Trent Bailey. To see the photos from the shows that I photographed, check out the Completely Unveiled blog by clicking the images below. The first show was the Wedding Trendspot show, and featured designers Lindee Daniel, Beth Ellis, Katerina Bocci, Chaviano, CB Couture, Karen Hendrix, and Valena. The second show was for Anne Bowen’s new collection. Weddings Unveiled has an awesome blog, so make sure to follow them! And a big thank you goes out to Cake and Pictures for hooking us up with them!
