Barclay New York InterContinental Wedding : Sarah & Chris

New York, NY - November 19, 2020

Sarah & Chris’ wedding at the Barclay New York InterContinental was everything you could dream of in a elegantly appointed midtown masterpiece of a property. I have absolutely never witnessed a bridal suite like this one with its massive living space and balcony. Truly the ideal place to get ready for the wedding day.

After an intimate first look on the balcony, we walked outside to Park Avenue for a few photos before it was time to stand under the chuppah. Fleurs NYC designed the florals which ‘married’ just perfectly with the built in decor of the hotel. And of course, the show-stopping cake by Ron Ben Israel was positively covered in hand made sugar flowers. Absolutely amazing.

Washington Square Park Engagement : Dara & Jared

New York, NY - June 10, 2020

Washington Square Park in the Spring is a gorgeous place for a NYC engagement session especially with the crisp afternoon light streaming through! Within a couple blocks of the park are several interesting spots which make it a really versatile setting. If you’re looking for an alternative to Central Park that has just a touch of natural elements mixed with more of the city feel, Washington Square Park is an excellent option.

Brooklyn Bridge Park Engagement : Kate & Ryan

Brooklyn, NY - June 4, 2020

The ingredients for a gorgeous engagement session in Brooklyn or anywhere are always great light and stunning location. Brooklyn Bridge Park has become so popular and crowded these days but if you go on a weekday on the outer edges of the season (mid October in this case) you can have a relaxing session. It really is worth it if you want those sweeping views because there is little else like it. On the New Jersey side you can get an amazing view as well but the sun sets in front of you rather than behind. No better or worse just a different look and feel.
