Jacqueline & Michael - NJ Botanical Garden Engagement

We had such an amazing time wandering around the gorgeous NJ Botanical Gardens with Jacqueline and Michael! There are picturesque spots around every corner there. We even got super lucky and had perfect golden hour light to wrap up the session! Congrats Jacqueline & Michael!

Karla & Jeremy - The Green Building Wedding

Karla and Jeremy are one of the absolute sweetest couples we know. So a little backstory on them. Can you believe they actually went to the school for a year or so before they met - and even ended up in the same class?? They were then introduced by mutual friends and the rest is history.

When they asked us to photograph their wedding we were insanely hyped. Not only did we get to capture such an amazing couple’s special day, but we had a chance to work at The Green Building, a venue we’ve been in love with forever. Their day was filled with such pure love and so many emotions. We haven’t seen a couple go in on dancing that hard in a while and it was awesome! Congrats Karla and Jeremy! Check them out below <3

Kaitlyn & Luke - East Village Engagement

We love when our couples choose their neighborhood for engagement photos! We were able to wander around with Kaitlyn and Luke, exploring the local stores and park. They even had a chance to ride some Citibikes!! We’re so excited for their wedding coming up this month :)

Saakshi & Clayton - Jersey City Engagement

A little rain wasn’t going to bring Saakshi and Clayton down! For their Jersey City engagement we began with drinks at a local bar (which actually was what they did as their first date!) and then we wandered around the city. We wrapped up at Liberty State Park which has some gorgeous views of NYC and the rain actually helped create some gorgeous photos! We love when our couples are so adventurous and willing to hang out in the rain <3 Can’t wait for your wedding this coming year!

Ana & Christie - North Brooklyn Farms / Brooklyn Winery Wedding

Capturing Ana & Christie’s special day was something we had been looking forward to all year. The minute we met them, their sweetness melted our hearts. Our day began with Ana & Christie getting married at their homes; Christie doing a mini reveal after getting dressed to the happy clapping of her family.

We headed over to Domino Park where they did they’re first look and were so ridiculously happy to see each other! After doing photos there, it was time for the ceremony right next door at North Brooklyn Farms. It was a beautiful ceremony filled with words of love and strength. The night wrapped up with a super fun reception at Brooklyn Winery (a fave of ours!) and lots of laughter and dancing. Congrats Ana & Christie, it was seriously amazing working with you two <3

Mae & Matt - Far Rockaway Wedding

Weddings don’t have to be super elaborate to be special! Mae & Matt got ready at Mae’s family home in Far Rockaway, surrounded by their closest family. With a little rain outside they did their first look down the staircase, it was so cozy and intimate. Then within just a few minutes, the skies cleared and we were able to make our way over to the beach for photos!

We then headed over to their hometown church for a lovely ceremony filled with many Phillipino traditions for Mae as well as paying homage to Matt’s heritage with bagpipes being played on entering and exiting! This was a true joining of two families together as one.

The reception was at a local caterers home (showing just how closely knit everyone is!) where everyone enjoying a delicious buffet style meal.

Their cake topper was a true testament to who they are as a couple because they bike together EVERYWHERE. To note, they got engaged on a cycling trip in Tuscany. And in a true Wandermore fashion, the two ubered straight from the wedding to JFK for their honeymoon in Greenland! It was such a pleasure capturing their amazing and intimate day, congrats Mae & Matt!

Kara & Randy - Brooklyn Winery Wedding

We had the absolute pleasure of capturing Kara and Randy’s beautiful day at Brooklyn Winery! The day began with Kara getting ready at their apartment! Surrounded by her close family, there was a calm and relaxed atmosphere as everyone got ready together. Kara couldn’t a grin of her face. Her gorgeous wedding dress had a low-cut V neck, and embroidery seamed at the shoulders giving it a timeless look. The veil was clasped to the back of her shoulders hinting at the design of regal Greek brides.

She also wore a combination of chic traditional and modern accessories. The pearl bracelet on her wrist was a gift from her mother and, her purse belonged to her grandmother Helena. Now, don’t think we’re leaving Randy out – he looked so suave in a tux a vivid shade of cobalt blue. His ice blue tie and charming smile were the only other adornments he needed to make him look amazing.

Clusters of flowers and greenery adorned the ceremony itself; a trail of pale pink rose petals were beautifully scattered along the aisle. Gentle, lilting music from a huge harp drifted from the front of the whole, lifting the atmosphere of the whole wedding. Randy and Kara left no leaf turned to show their hospitality at the event. A lovely and sweet ceremony followed!

Platters upon platters of delicacies were served to the guest as well as an entire section dedicated to a “Brooklyn Boardwalk” themed table at the end of the night On a special note: the Polaroid used for taking the photos was actually vintage!

We had such an amazing time photographing Kara & Randy’s love for each other. A million thanks to them and wishing them all the best!!

Tabitha & Joseph - Suffolk Theater Wedding

In the magical ambiance of Suffolk Theater, we watched Tabitha & Joe dance the night away. With a shared deep love of musical theater, there was no better place to celebrate love. We actually photographed their engagement session in two locations, because they had done long distance for so many years and it was representative of everything they went through. Feel free to check out their Washington DC and New Paltz sessions. From Tabitha’s exquisite dress to the super fun reception, read on to find out more about this amazing couple’s special day!

I’ve (Michelle) known Tabitha for a long time – we actually used to work together at Radio City Music Hall! When I saw her in her wedding dress for the first time, I was nearly ready to cry! She looked absolutely stunning. The dress was a beauty in itself: gorgeous floral lace and tulle, with a net and lace wedding train that trailed majestically behind her. Joseph also looked super dapper in a black tux paired with a white shirt and a pale cream tie!

We took some lovely outdoor photos of the couple along with their bridesmaids, friends, and family. Tabitha held a delightful bouquet of white lilies, pale pink roses and lavender. The bouquets were ordered from a very special florist: the place from where Joe bought his first ever bouquet for Tabitha during the first summer of their relationship together. Tabitha’s bridesmaids were dressed in the exact shade of lilac as the flowers in her bouquet.

On to the ceremony! The interior of the church was lovely. The ceremony was officially labeled “unplugged” – which means you can enjoy the moment without having to look to your camera and phone every five minute! It also makes for gorgeous, phone free photos :) We had the photography part of the wedding covered; the guests were free to enjoy. After the vows were spoken and the couple said “I do”, we made our way to the most fun part of every wedding: the reception.

It was clear from first sight that Tabitha and Joseph had put tremendous thought and effort into the finer details of their special day. Take for example this: the gorgeous centerpieces were decorated with poems that Joe had written for Tabitha. Isn’t that sweet? A framed card noted the bride and groom’s signature drinks. The evening progressed with lively music and some amazing performances from the guests. Tabitha and Joe looked lovely during their first dance as husband and wife. Everyone pitched in on the dance floor and the night passed in laughter and fun.

We had such an amazing time working with Tabitha and Joseph. Their wedding was beautiful – we couldn’t possibly be any happier! We wish them a happy married life ahead.

Alexis & Nate - Transmitter Park Greenpoint Engagement

I had such a blast with Alexis and Nate for their engagement session! Nate used to live local to the park and they had a lot of their dates there, so it was a perfect spot for this. We wandered around the park, enjoying the sunset and the gorgeous weather. We even went out on the pier! Afterwards we strolled around, looking for some cool street art (Greenpoint has tons)! We stopped for a quick beer and continued on our adventures, wrapping up in front of some awesome graffitied walls. What was even more wild was right after we finished, they officially began their move to Texas! Congrats to you both Alexis and Nate!
