Oh where oh where would I begin for these two?!?!
Probably with the bride to be.
Yep. Let’s start there.
Especially considering that I have known her for _______ years. *Divulging the actual number might give away my age, so let’s just say it’s been over a decade.
Together Loren and I have shared some of our sickest times (health wise), a lot of our wildest nights, and quite possibly some of our loudest musical moments, spanning different cities, states and even different countries. So, it might not be shocking that taking this engagement session equalled a perfect day.
Loren and Bobby met in New York, working at SBG alongside some other amazing people… and it’s no wonder they ended up together. These two are cut from the same ridiculous cloth that is derived partly from musical talent, an appreciate for puns, big bowls of soup, and pepper, if Loren has anything to do with it.
When we started off their visit to us in New York, we walked down the street to our favorite neighborhood spot, Paddy’s Irish Pub. If you’ve known me through travel, or in life, you know that wherever I am, I feel more at home walking into an Irish pub. Something about the food, drinks, the company… it’s always a comfort.
Mind you that night I went out with these two, we ended up in a near disaster with an encounter with a stranger… who may or may not have thought he was with the mob?? Bobby was about to save the world by talking sense into this deranged man when we convinced him to come get sleep so we could have this epic session start on time the next morning. #priorities.
I hope you know that I tell you more about my time with my couples so you can understand a tiny bit of the heart and soul that goes into this thing I call a career.
Scroll through the photos then feel free to ask questions about anything, okay? The locations, the amazing outfits, the transportation situations… anything.
While living in Brooklyn, a favorite spot to visit was Governors Island. And we went there a lot. I was so excited to make that the first stop on the photo adventure. We started walking around the island, flitting around the gardens, getting our steps in up and down a ridiculous amount of stairs (by stairs, just know it was a bunch of rocks you have to climb to get to the amazing views) and then headed back out on the ferry.
Next up? Lunch in DUMBO.
Who doesn’t love a spot with a view of two amazing bridges, a carousel, and a spot to shop, eat and drink… trendy boxed water that tastes like cardboard?? Yeah, I’m not sure I’m on board with it yet either, but we looked cool.
During our pop into DUMBO, we managed everything from a wardrobe change, to being photo bombed by an adult wanting to skip rocks right behind their epic lift picture between the Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridges. Thankfully I had enough room to angle a different way, but don’t worry- I sent them one with him still in it.
Since we weren’t in a rush, there was time to do lunch and ride the carousel, because no one should ever have to choose between sustenance and silliness.
Next and final stop was everything the day was building up to.
They got done up in wardrobes fitting for a Beauty and the Beast premiere, and I was in heaven. I have walked through the terminals so many times with Connor just staring at the architecture and dreaming of shooting inside.
I got to do all to that and more.
You might be able to tell by scrolling just how free I was to shoot what I wanted and capture their relationship in all it’s glory. As we travel this next year- send me any couples who are willing to put in a few miles with me to really create some new memories.
Hope you enjoyed a tiny peek of our weekend!
Loren and Bobby I can’t even wait for next year!!
