mike + katie – surprise proposal at top of the rock, NYC

Early in the morning on the first day of 2012, Mike proposed to Katie on top of Rockefeller Center’s observation deck Top of the Rock.  He surprised Katie first with a trip to NYC from Michigan and then with a beautiful diamond ring!   When Mike emailed me about photographing this proposal, we decided that the morning would be best to avoid the crowds and it worked out great.  The bright sun and brilliant blue skies were the backdrop for a perfect day!  What a way to start 2012!

Thank you Mike and Katie for making my job so much fun.  It was my pleasure to be a part such a big day in your lives.  Say hello to Michigan for me!

alex + leslie – wedding in central park, nyc

Time to close our eyes and travel back in time…to the lovely, warm days of early September.  Alex and Leslie traveled from Texas to NYC for their wedding in Central Park.  I had previously shot their engagement photos so I was thrilled to see them again to shoot their wedding!  I also had the pleasure of working with I Do New York once again.  Alex and Leslie are HUGE New York Yankees fans and this was evident in many of the details and the fact that the next day, everyone went to a game as well!  Of course the Yankees won :-)  They also share a love of theatre and used an engagement shot to make their Playbill program which was SO cool.   After the ceremony at Wagners Cove, everyone headed to John’s Pizzeria in Times Square for lunch (my favorite pizza in NYC).  There, the guests opened envelopes containing tickets to the Broadway show, Jersey Boys!

The whole afternoon was fantastic and I’m so happy to have been a part of their day!  Below are some of my favorite shots.

As always, CLICK HERE to watch their SLIDESHOW!  Way more photos and fun times!
