I met Lauren and Jim through Lauren’s sisters, Alison and Melissa. I was super lucky to be able to photograph Melissa’s awesome wedding and have photographed Alison’s beautiful family a number of times, so when Lauren reached out and asked if I was interested in documenting her wedding, I jumped on the opportunity!
From our initial phone conversation, I could tell that Lauren and Jim were going to be so much to work with. There were lots of laughs and stories and as we began planning for their shoot, I already had some ideas about where I thought we could create photos that would best represent them.We decided on Long Beach, Long Island for our engagement shoot, which is such a great spot to create photos. Being from Long Island, I love when I get to be in place that I am so familiar and comfortable with, and over the past few years, I have been shooting more in this area.
I genuinely love engagement shoots. It makes your wedding day a lot easier for you when we have time to practice being in front of the camera as well as having some photos to display during your wedding day. A big thank you to my assistant, Daniel Dipasquale for his help with this!
