What better way for me to kick-off the New Year than by sharing one of my favorite engagement sessions from last year! Back in September, I met Maria + Pat for coffee and conversation just down the street from where they first met each other at a karaoke bar when Maria had pulled a reluctant Pat up on stage to sing with her a few years prior! After that first chance encounter, they began dating and eventually living together in NYC where Pat romantically popped the question to his Maria. Shortly after their engagement, they moved to a beautiful and sprawling home in Westchester, NY where they opened their doors and hearts by inviting me to photograph their engagement session. I arrived on a beautiful end-of-summer evening to find the beautiful couple excited to start their session. It was so wonderful to photograph these two who just relaxed into each other’s arms, laughed as they danced, and kissed as often as needed until the sun set… Maria + Pat, I hope these photos always remind you of this exciting time in your lives filled with new beginnings!
