BRIDGET & MIKE | NYC ENGAGEMENT ON FILM

Bridget and Mike got engaged on the steps of the Lincoln Center when Mike surprised Bridget on a whirlwind weekend getaway, so it only seemed fitting to have their engagement session in the city that holds so many special memories for them. You  might not be able to tell from these photos, but we experienced the wackiest weather ever on the day of their session. It downpoured all morning, causing us to postpone until the afternoon. Then we we did start shooting, the temps were soaring and the humidity must’ve been about 99.99%. THEN, as we finished our session on the Brooklyn Bridge, a storm quickly rolled in and tornados touched down in Brooklyn. Literally. We scampered off the bridge to run for cover and the very second we found shelter, the downpours started again. So, it’s safe to say that Bridget and Mike are total troopers and up for anything!  In between location, weather and wardrobe changes, we stopped for drinks in an air conditioned dive bar we happened upon in the West Village (we had to, it was seriously so hot!) and later, we enjoyed cupcakes! Bridget and Mike, I can’t wait for your wedding next spring!

















 

Amy - Awesome as always! Even with the threat of a rainstorm! Great work Laura!

Mary Jean Hertig - Totally Thrilled with how wonderful this happy couple looks!!! Very nice photos! I cannot wait for the WEDDIN!!!!

SARAH & RYAN | MINNEAPOLIS ENGAGEMENT PHOTOGRAPHY

What’s not to love about Sarah & Ryan? They are the sweetest duo and I couldn’t stop laughing during their engagement session. Sarah is so full of life and her smile is truly contagious. She and Ryan complement each other perfectly.  We incorporated one of their favorite activities, biking, into their session. I was in love with their duo red, Scwhinn cruisers. Makes me want to add a cruiser to my bike collection (which only currently contains a road bike, albeit, a fantastic road bike!). Thank you for the amazing time!  Can’t wait for your big day, you two!













Helgs - LOVE it! Really LIV style!

Catherine Marciniak - Love this session so cute !!

SARAH & ETHAN | NAUTICAL ENGAGEMENT SESSION

Sarah & Ethan are two incredibly special people. On their own, they are incredibly giving, fun, full of life, and just radiate with happiness. But together, it’s something super special. Out of this world, really. They are the kind of couple that inspire love in other people. Make you want to squeeze your significant other just a little bit tighter. I really can’t even begin to describe how much I love this couple and how happy they make me (and presumably everyone around them!). I am beyond excited for their wedding day!
