Kristine + Steve met us at one of our favorite Florida locations for a sweet stroll around the lovely Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens for their engagement session. Hailing from NYC, this couple has an incredible wedding day planned for this winter in Miami; we were so happy our schedules aligned so that we could also shoot their engagement session before the big day! Check out a few of our favorites with these two lovebirds…

Our 4th of July holiday weekend kicked off with Mai-Vi + Paul’s intimate wedding in Boca Raton on July 3rd. We were blown away by the relaxed atmosphere of the small group of relatives and close friends, and felt immediately welcome. Mai-Vi started her day by going on a “fun run” with her girls (“just ten miles”– wow!), and then settled into her air conditioned suite at the Boca Raton Resort + Club to get ready.…

A stormy day couldn’t keep Kaitlyn + Matt from beaming at each other last weekend! We joined these recent West Point grads for their wedding celebration along with friends and family from near and far. We met Kaitlyn and her mom in a Juno Beach parking lot while headed into another wedding last December, and have been so touched by the obvious care and emotion that they have put into this happy day (and getting to…

Going into Alex + Jared’s Palm Beach destination wedding we knew that they were drawing people from all over the United States and beyond. Friends and family came from Boston, New Hampshire, California, and Alex’s grandparents flew from nearby (ha!) Romania. (They were a delight.) Some flew in for New Year’s Eve celebrations a few days before the big day, some flew in for the rehearsal, and some were delayed on their way back out…

Anna + Michael found us through their beautiful ceremony venue, the Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens in West Palm Beach, Florida. Planning from far away Colorado, we didn’t have a chance to meet them until a couple of days before the big day, but their excited conversation and laid back, easy going personalities were infectious, and immediately won our hearts. Asking us to focus on capturing the day through candids, with a priority on their guests…

There’s nothing like a summer day in Vermont. Hiking a hill in the warm sun carrying clothing and equipment for a portrait session may not appeal to everyone, but Emily and Margot both grew up in this beautiful state; dodging cow patties, avoiding brambles, and eating crab apples are all just part of the experience. This I Love Vermont session is to celebrate Margot’s 30th birthday this year; we couldn’t think of a better location…

We couldn’t have asked for more perfect weather; it was the kind of early fall day when it’s still warm, but the heat of summer has mercifully fled. A clear sky, a light breeze, and a kiss of warmth from the sun made this session perfectly pleasant, an absolute delight to shoot. We had been traveling in the northeast for over a week at this point (see Em’s travel photography on Instagram), encountering a variety…

Alright, so we weren’t quite finished with Nicole + Scott (if you haven’t seen their wedding post, click here to check it out). The day after their wedding we took some time to wander around Naples in more casual clothing (Nicole had a reception dress she never had a chance to wear… perfect!). As much fun as we always have during the nerves-stretched-tight excitement of wedding days, day after sessions have an amazing feeling of…

There’s something to be said for waiting a long time before you get married. Teresa and Brent have been together longer than the Pogos have known each other, have a settled routine in their lives with their daughter, and go about their daily lives just… living. Maybe you’ve heard that after a few years romance and love can get put on the back burner, and maybe that’s true for some people. Teresa and Brent blew…

Christina + Ryan (click to see their engagement session at the Jupiter lighthouse earlier this year) were married on the first of December, which unlike much of the country was actually a beautifully warm and sunny day. They both got ready at Frenchman’s Reserve with their best guys and gals, chose to see each other privately for their First Look, then headed to Saint Patrick Catholic Church down the road for the ceremony. Christina was…

[Fine art fashion photography by Em] It must have been kismet; on the same day that I was trying to figure out how to incorporate the beautiful Muhly grass that was blooming in a soft pinkish hue nearby into a shoot, Lauren posted on Facebook that she was hoping to do a photoshoot someday soon. Everything aligned perfectly; our schedules, the weather [dry, and cool! Amazing!], combined efforts on finding pieces for wardrobe, the light……

After a relaxing day wandering Key West (and playing with the kitties at the Hemingway Home… see one of Em’s instagrams here) we met up with Cindy + Alan to visit some of their favorite parts of the town and take some portraits minus the crazy atmosphere of the wedding day. To beat the heat we had a snack at Kermit’s Key Lime Shoppe, where we discovered that chocolate covered key lime pie on a stick,…

There’s nothing quite like the hush of a sleepy Sunday afternoon in an elegant Southern city. Tina + Angelo donned their wedding clothes again for a relaxed day after session with us in Charleston, the festivities of the night before fading to a happy memory. We love sessions like this… everyone is tired, but the afterglow of the wedding still hangs in the air. Seeing the gentle touch of love between a new husband +…

Julie + Brian planned one of the most laid back, relaxing weddings we’ve been to… but how could it be anything but relaxing at a beautiful resort in the US Virgin Islands? We joined the happy couple and a small group of close family and friends for a weekend celebration of Julie + Brian’s love and marriage at the Sugar Bay Resort + Spa on St. Thomas. The weather looked threatening leading up to the…

We are beyond psyched to be shooting Julia + Kevin’s wedding next May! Em met Julia in tenth grade in New Hampshire, when they were both “new kids” in the school. (Life has certainly improved since those angsty teenage years!) We first met Kevin when Julia brought him as her date to our wedding two years ago; we noticed then that he seemed way cooler than we are, and that hasn’t changed a bit. Since…

We got together with Tiffany + Mike for a Day After Session in Jupiter last week (sometimes we do these on the literal day after the wedding; usually they’re later unless it’s a destination wedding!). Didn’t Tiffany look stunning back in her dress?? We loved that she was adventurous enough to climb a tree (and that her firefighter husband was able to lift her up there like it was nothing… gotta love those strong rescuers!).…

Remember Lowery + Brian’s engagement session earlier this year? We’ve been looking forward to their wedding ever since! While we’re lucky enough to live in paradise, we love seeing our sparkling nook of South Florida through the eyes of our clients who travel so far to have their wedding here. Lowery has dreamed of having her wedding here for quite some time; the first time she visited her parents’ friends’ home in Jupiter Inlet Colony,…

We are so excited for Rebecca + Patrick’s first baby… their little boy is due in June! Emily went to their home to capture Rebecca during this special time in her life (along with a few shots with Patrick, of course). Can’t wait to meet their son next month… in the meantime, click below to see a few of our favorite images from their belly session, and click here to be notified when the rest…

We had a great afternoon with Christina + Ryan, starting at the Jupiter Lighthouse and finishing at Coral Cove Park for some beachy shots. The weather was threatening, but held off the entire time we were outside! How cooperative. :-) Despite living in Jupiter for the past 6 years, Em had somehow never been to the Lighthouse before (and Steve hadn’t been since elementary school), so it was a really fun experience… add in a…

We’re so excited for Tina + Angelo’s wedding this fall! We traveled to Atlanta, Georgia for their engagement session last week, and had fun exploring Little Five Points and Piedmont Park with them. It’s always so much fun to leap into the challenge of shooting in a new (to us) location! The colors and textures of Little Five Points were awesome, and Piedmont Park is lovely in April, full of lush greens and the beautiful…

Saturday was one of those spring days in Florida where the weather looked threatening, with looming clouds and spitting rain… but despite everything managed to hold off for Krista + Mark’s elegant wedding celebration at the Seagate Beach Club in Delray Beach. (Click below for more of Krista + Mark’s wedding day!)

Lowery and Brian came all the way from Texas to meet with us while planning their wedding (coming up this June! Can’t wait!). We had scheduled their engagement session for a narrow window of time while they were in town for a few short days– Monday afternoon. And of course, South Florida goes and does that rare winter thing… it rained!  All day! And thunder, and… ick. So we planned the only bit of time…

We joined Stephanie and Jim in Naples for their engagement session before the holidays and had so much fun! We wandered through Tin City, 5th Avenue South, and wound up at the local beach for a spectacular Gulf Coast sunset over the water. Thanks to this happy couple for inviting us to your part of the state– we can’t wait to see you for your wedding in February! Click below to see more of our…

The holidays are always a good time to get the whole family together! We joined this happy family the day after Christmas in New Port Richey, Florida for some long overdue family portraits. Emily has actually been photographing members of this family since 2001, making them officially our longest running client. :-) We loved spending time with everyone on the beach while watching the sun set… the Gulf Coast is so peaceful. Please enjoy a…

We are so looking forward to Krista and Mark’s wedding next year! We met up with them in Palm Beach Gardens during a blustery November afternoon for their engagement portraits. We absolutely love how this couple makes each other smile, laugh, and light up with happiness. Thank you for choosing us to be your photographers and for sharing your New York love story with us (hint: it has something to do with a pizza parlor!).

We joined Nichole + Jason for their wedding on 11.11.11 last week… this couple knows how to throw a party! From their beautiful fall theme to the intimate courtyard ceremony their friends and family loved every minute of this happy couple’s wedding.

Amber + Mark joined us for a Day After session to celebrate their one year anniversary. When we were scouting locations recently this place just called out to us as the perfect setting for Amber’s poofy, layered dress.

Ashley and Mac were married last Saturday during what was predicted to be an incredibly stormy day (as in Tropical Stormy). Astonishingly the rain and wind managed to hold off during the exact moments we needed to be outside, so we all stayed comfortably dry and we were still able to head to the portrait location Ashley and Mac were looking forward to using. (Thanks to whoever is in charge of weather!) We were touched…

We were so happy when Margot and Jeff decided they wanted a day-after session; we love doing these. It’s so fun to be able to find new and interesting locations for portraits without the time constraints of the wedding day!
