When Molly’s inquiry popped in my inbox earlier this summer… I felt like the stars aligned. She and Will both graduated from Notre Dame, my alma mater, and they planned to marry at the Shenorock Shore Club, one of my favorite venues in all of New York! Even better, I happened to be planning a trip back to campus for a football weekend only a week before they move from the midwest back to New York. Everything worked out perfectly for their on campus Notre Dame Engagement Session!
Everything except a few rain drops on Friday morning but you’d never know from these images… both of them were troopers as we wandered south quad and up the steps of the Golden Dome before classes even began for students. All three engagement session last week took place in location near and dear to the hearts of these three couples… I can’t wait for you to see the grand finale… Molly & Will at Notre Dame… this one is extra special for me as well!
Congratulations you guys – I can’t wait to be there for your big day! Enjoy these highlights from your engagement session!
Congrats you guys!! I can’t wait for your wedding next summer… it can’t get here soon enough!!

Today is part two of my engagement session triple header this week on the blog!! Last Thursday I flew to Chicago for a family football weekend at my alma mater, Notre Dame… but before driving to South Bend I met Samantha and Brad in the place that means so much to their relationship – Chicago! We met right across the street from their apartment building to begin their Lincoln Park North Avenue Beach Chicago Engagement Session Photos! These two are celebrating their wedding next year right up the street from my house in Rye, New York at the Coveleigh Club but it’s the windy city that they call home!
Even though I spent a year or so living in Chicago myself, I feel like I discover something new every time I go back! I loved wandering Lincoln Park with these two and discovering views of downtown I never knew about! Between the fall leaves and the sun going over the city… we could have stayed out there all day! We battled the wind on North Avenue Beach and the whipping water along Lake Michigan’s edge but it was worth it… I love all the shots we captured here!
Samantha and Brad, I’m so glad it worked out to photograph your engagement photos in your city!! I can’t wait to see you again in New York before you know it!!
Congrats you guys!! So excited to see you again in New York!!

It’s engagement week on the blog – I’m kicking off Halloween with the first of three engagement sessions I photographed in three different states – not including New York or Connecticut – last week! It was quite the adventure!! I started my big engagement week in Rhode Island with Joelle & Gardiner at Mount Hope Farm to photograph them right across the Narragansett Bay from Rogers Williams University where these two met!
With the Mount Hope Bridge in the background, we wandered the park grounds where Joelle and Gardiner originally considered hosting their wedding day. Luckily it made the perfect setting for a romantic engagement session in the place that holds so many special memories for the two college sweethearts. I love when these sessions take me to exciting new locations!
Enjoy a glass of champagne and this adorable couple!! How stunning is Joelle’s ring by the way… an heirloom from her grandmother… I love it!!
Congrats you guys!! Can’t wait for your wedding next summer!!

Two years ago to the day, Holly and Tim first met at Cedar Point Yacht Club in Westport, Connecticut. It was also the spot Tim chose to propose to Holly… so when they looked at the tidal calendar to pick the best day to photograph their engagement session on the rocks of Cedar Point, it was only fitting that October 17th made the perfect date! Low tide, nice weather… and a special anniversary for them both! I joined Holly and Tim and their pug mix Roscoe at Cedar Point on Tuesday afternoon to capture their engagement photos in the place where it all began!
The weather could not have been nicer for these two and their adorable chemistry stole the show… I could not have had more fun wandering the rocks and beaches around the waterfront property with Holly and Tim. It was extra special to be joined by Brittany, Holly’s sister whose wedding I photographed last year, who kept Roscoe in line during the whole session! Ha ha! Holly and Tim, I’m so excited to celebrate with your family again next summer at your Stamford Yacht Club wedding – enjoy these highlights!! Can’t wait to see you both again soon!
Congrats you guys!!

It was a Latin American history class at Fordham University where Eli caught Frances’ eye. She needed a way to get his attention so she asked him to play a squash, since he was the team captain of course. Since that fateful history class in college, Eli and Frances have been inseparable!
This midwestern guy and New York girl make the perfect pair! Since we met over Mexican food in Manhattan several months ago and last week during their Planting Fields Arboretum engagement session, their easy nature and joy around each other are contagious! We could have wandered the gardens for hours during their session and not taken a bad photograph! I only with their May wedding would get here sooner! How adorable are these two?!?
Congratulations you guys!! I can’t wait to get you in front of my camera again!!
Congrats you guys!! I can’t wait for your wedding!!
