Tarah and Zach wanted their New York City engagement photography session to be romantic and spontaneous. The California couple was in New York City just for the weekend, and had a lot going on, so we squeezed in a quick engagement photography session and had a blast working together. You can really feel how close and relaxed this couple is together. Holding hands just happens, kisses just happen…it all seems so natural with them. I love working with couples like this. I gave them a few small directions and lifted my camera as the sparks flew. Of course not all couples …

This handsome jet-set couple wanted their NYC engagement photography session to be something to remember, so they retraced their steps from their first trip to New York City together and I snapped photos along the way. We began at The Mark Hotel, shooting in the landmark hotel’s gorgeous black and white lobby as well as on the street next to the hotel where the couple had their first kiss. Very romantic! Next we walked up to Central Park and followed in the footsteps of their first stroll together, eventually ending up at the Loeb Boathouse where the couple boarded a …

I had a blast working with this smart and dynamic couple on their fall New York engagement photography session! Since these charmers both live and work in the financial district in the city of NY, they wanted their engagement shoot to feel like a romantic Sunday walk around their neighborhood. We started off near the South Street Seaport and wrapped around to Battery Park for the finale. Not only does this couple look like they just stepped out of a Ralph Lauren advertising campaign, they proved they were up for anything when they spontaneously jumped in with a group of Japanese tourists …

I captured this romantic Central Park engagement photography session with Karen and Matt at one on New York City’s best wedding venues, the Loeb Boathouse. A Loeb Boathouse engagement photography session is always special, it’s just that great a venue. Inside there’s soft light filtering in from the charming lake outside. Adding some reflector and a touch of flash to fill in the shadows, the couple looked incredible. Outside you have trees and rocks that line the lake, rowboats, shady oak trees and much more. There are so many gorgeous settings and backdrops. Karen told me, “Just an FYI…Matt REALLY doesn’t like having …

One thing I love about engagement photography sessions is that every couple is looking for something uniquely their own. Some couples want to head down to the beach…run around on the sand…roll around in the surf…just keep it loose, spontaneous and fun. I love these types of shoots because they’re organic and they’re all about the energy the couple has between them. Other couples prefer to make a more dramatic statement with their engagement photographs, as was the case with this engagement photography session in Hong Kong. The couple were inspired by the Academy Award winning Chinese film “In The …

It’s no secret, I love being an engagement photographer in Paris. Because let’s face it, there’s no more romantic place to be kissed than in Paris, in spring. My father is a lover of black and white photography, and one of the photographers he collects is the French master Cartier Bresson. On the wall above our stairway, next to the grandfather clock, hangs a framed silver gelatin print by Bresson from the 60’s. The image is of a French couple kissing across a small outdoor cafe table, with the couple’s dog looking up at them from under the table. It’s …

I met Luca & Marta, a vibrant Italian couple, while photographing a destination wedding at the romantic Jashita Hotel in Tulum Mexico. Over lunch we struck up a conversation about Soliman Bay and it’s history. We spoke about the year and a half I lived in Milano and some of the things we all love about Italia. Married for several years they never had an engagement photo session. Working as an engagement photographer in Mexico, there’s one thing I can’t get enough of, and that’s capturing couples’ love stories. They were such a cute couple, with so much romance between them, I …

I really enjoyed being Michael and Bridget’s engagement photographer in Bel Air! As a portrait-driven photographer, and a lover of all things romantic, I always enjoy making engagement shoots. Of course I love capturing the electricity between 2 people in love, but these engagement sessions allow me discover a couple without all of the day-of pressure. I get to see who they really are together. Michael and Bridget have been together since high school and they’re about to tie the knot. They’re both athletic and love the water. For this reason we decided to make their pics poolside at my …

Sometimes, a kiss seems to last forever. Let’s hear it for love, passion, and emotion…may they rule the day! I was photographing this young couple for a special edition of the French magazine Madame Figaro. I needed a “From Here To Eternity” kiss for a double-page. Voila….un grande bisou!
