Paper Party

July 24, 2013 BY Leigh Anna

Earlier this summer we had the pleasure of participating in a really fun event hosted by Lion in the Sun at their Park Slope location. Viva Max did a great job gathering us all together and planning the event. Every guest was given the opportunity to plan a wedding in 7 words. Our goal was to help couples narrow down their ideas and really focus on the core of what they wanted their wedding to be. Viva had tons of descriptive words printed out on paper, so that the couples could pick out their own words and chat with us about how those words might translate to their wedding. It was a really fun evening and I am so glad I was able to capture it!

These amazing invitations from Lion in the Sun were the inspiration behind Michelle Edgemont‘s amazing table decor and garland!

If you are looking for invitations, Lion in the Sun has everything you could ever want!

I am in LOVE with the spray painted ferns…what a great idea!

The cake pops from Haute So Sweet were the best cake pops I have ever had!!

Makeup Artist Sharon Becker was working her magic! I loved the inspiration illustrations she brought with her!

Jack from Brooklyn was serving up cocktails made from his oh-so-sweet Sorel. Seriously folks, that stuff is so good!

Jarrell Entertainment kept us going all night!

We had such a great time! Thanks everyone for making this event a success!!

CJ + Adrien: A Central Park Engagement

June 7, 2013 BY Leigh Anna

I don’t think words can even describe how happy I am to share this post. Adrien and CJ are the most adorable couple! Surprisingly, this match was made by yours truly. I was shooting an event one evening and met Adrien, the cutest, most friendly French guy. Having arrived in the states only a few days earlier, and not knowing a soul, he decided to join me and a friend for dinner and a few drinks after the event. Halfway through the meal, my friend and I were both enamored by his charm. I grabbed my phone and texted my closest single girlfriend, CJ, and she just happened to be interested… the rest is history. Single girls rejoice! It just proves you never know what might be around the corner. CJ and Adrien got engaged last year and I couldn’t be happier. :) With a spring 2014 wedding keeping them busy, we headed to central park to capture a few quiet moments. Thanks for letting me be a part of this special moment in your lives!! Love you guys!

Faith + Mike: Long Island City Engagement

May 8, 2013 BY Leigh Anna

I first met Faith & Mike at Jenn & Matt’s wedding. Faith was Jenn’s bridesmaid and had just gotten engaged herself. We got to know each other a little bit that day and when time came for them to choose a photographer, I was thrilled that they came to us. We have known each other for a while now, and Faith has become one of my good friends throughout that time. I love it when that happens….it’s a little added bonus when not only do I get to work with these amazing couples but I also get to know them and stay in touch years after their wedding day is done.

Faith and Mike live in Long Island City, right on the water, so when thinking about where we wanted to shoot their engagement session, it was obvious that we needed to do it there. LIC has the most amazing waterfront, with a beautiful view of the Manhattan skyline. We wanted to shoot right around sunset, which gave us the most amazing light and background. I really enjoyed working with these two…and I can’t wait to also share their beautiful wedding with you soon!! Enjoy!
