Elopement

Christina & Dan: A Sweet NYC Elopement

Christina and Dan eloped today in New York City, and I’m so honored they chose me to capture these special moments! We began the day at the New York City Marriage Bureau, and it was the quietest I have ever seen it. We breezed right through the process. After these two got hitched we went for a little stroll around the courts and into City Hall Park. I could not get over how perfect the late morning light was. The warm light shinning through the trees made for some stunning portraits. It was a lovely autumn day, for an absolutely lovely couple.

A Family Trip to Jones Family Farms

Today, a day when most of the nation is hustling and bustling to get their Black Friday on, my family and I headed out of the fray to harvest our very own Christmas tree!

Stuffed to the gills after a delicious Thanksgiving feast the night before, and armed with a thermos of Glühwein, we loaded up the cars and ventured to Shelton, CT, home of Jones Family Farms. There were several varieties of trees to choose from, but we eventually settled on a classic, and very adorable, Balsam Fir. I can’t wait to see her all done up and decorated!

I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. I look forward to continuing the tradition and eventually sharing it with my own little ones!
