Though the weather is going to be in the 50′s, the sun will be at least out….thank God for a dry and sunny day! We are going to have so much fun at this wedding! Crissy and Michael are one of the coolest couple you’ll ever meet. I did their engagement in NYC few months ago, and they really are both great infront of the camera. I had so much fun with them that I even went back to NYC the second time to get some night shots of the two of them.

NYC ENGAGEMENT SHOOT: CONGRATS TO ALISON AND BRETT Going back to NYC for the Great Bridal Expo reminds me of this engagement shoot I did with Alison and Brett. They are an amazing couple and now has become our good friends! Alison and Brett tied the knot at the Hotel duPont in Wilmington, DE. Here are the photos from their engagement shoot a couple of months ago: Had lots of fun with Alison and Brett during our shoot in NYC recently. Instead of me taking them around NYC for the shoot, they actually toured me around the city, where we found interesting areas to do their shoot. And hey, they even took me to where they filmed part of the movie “Serendipity”…I love that movie!
