New York City Winter Wonderland Engagement Shoot

Just because there’s snow, it doesn’t mean that your engagement shoot has to be a no-go! This couple embraced the snow. In fact, they planned their shoot around it! And I love how they chose a destination for their photos. If you have dreams of smiling for the camera in a tropical locale, or a metropolitan destination, or even just a town away from yours, do it! Your photos will be unique and so will the the memories associated with the shoot!

New York City wedding photographer, Martha Sachser, had the cutest words to share about her couple, Daniela and Rafael, who flew from Brazil to The Big Apple just for their engagement photos! Martha, in her own words:

When I say I have the best clients in the world, I’m serious! After a long flight (with connections) from Brazil to New York and a biting cold, they dropped their bags at the hotel and went straight to our meeting spot and nothing brought their good humor down! Daniela and Rafael are such a sweet and fun couple with a good energy like I’ve never seen before! Believe me, it was cold, as in I-can’t-feel-my-toes cold. Daniela had contacted me a while ago, and we talked about their session. The one thing she really wanted was… SNOW! I was very realistic about the facts and told her that for the second year in a row, snow was rare in NYC’s winter! But she did not give up! And what a surprise that the day of their session, we had the park all covered in white! It was really fun! Facing the cold of NYC is not easy, specially in the snow. But with good humor and lots of love, we registered many (comedic) romantic moments that will remain forever in our memories!

    I love NYC as the background. I watched an adorable engagement shoot inside Chelsea Market. The lighting, the old brickwork & the signage made for great backgrounds.

Ontario, Canada After-Wedding Session

So, perhaps you’ve heard of the photo shoot that some brides or newlyweds do after their wedding called a “Trash the Dress” shoot. The name of this style of shoot always makes me sad because there’s nothing more heartbreaking to me than TRASHING A WEDDING DRESS!! Gasp! I’ve seen the photos and they’re cool. They really are. But I could never! It hurts my brain to think about doing naughty things to a $1,000 or more piece of clothing with sentimental value and beauty.

But I love this term that I just learned thanks to Caroline Ross Photography: LOVE THE DRESS SESSION! Yes! Isn’t that great? You love your dress SO much that you want to pose and look fierce and do cool things in it after you’re all good and married. THIS, my friends, I find easy to approve!

I especially love that these two cuties embraced the winter wonderland of Garson, Ontario in Canada and dolled up their wedding gear with sweaters and winter accessories and, is that a sled? I don’t know. This Yenta is a native of Southern California. No matter, this romantic shoot in the snow is so special!

New Year’s Eve Wedding

I’m going to a New Year’s Eve Eve wedding this Sunday! I’m so excited to see Jordan and Alison get married in Chicago as the perfect ending to a pretty great year. Do you know anyone getting married this weekend? Their wedding isn’t quite New Year’s Eve, but it’s close enough that the festive vibe will be ringing loud and clear as it’s hours away from being the last wedding of 2012.

Must-have photos? A celebratory kiss, of course! And there’s also something fun and classy about the details that go into a NYE wedding. Lots of black and white, crisp textures, sparkly accessories, and bright accents of confetti or bling. Those who are simple or more muted in their design preferences need not apply to have a New Year’s Eve wedding. A celebration that starts in one year and ends in the next is anything but boring!

So whether you’ll be celebrating a new year and a new marriage this year or planning for one next year, indulge in some New Year’s Eve wedding photos!
