About engagement sessions


Engagement sessions are low-pressure, personal, and fun. We get a chance to get to know each other a little better and form a connection. I love to see how you interact as a couple and understand your personal dynamic. I always try to tailor my approach to make you comfortable in front of the camera. For every outgoing, vivacious bride, there is one who is quiet, shy, or more subdued, but each is perfect in her own way.

We are lucky to live in an area where we have beautiful, scenic spots within a short drive. Engagement sessions often take place at Fire Island Lighthouse, Long Beach in Smithtown, local parks and towns.  The best place for your session is one that means something to you. Where did you meet? What do you love to do? What is your favorite little restaurant or town? It's all about you!

It is always a good idea to integrate your own personal touch into your engagement session. We normally photograph on Long Island, but we have traveled to New Jersey and New York City as well. Jones Beach, Huntington Village, Port Jefferson Village, Hoboken, Central Park, Brooklyn Bridge Park, Gantry Park in Long Island City all have fabulous, iconic locations. So get a new outfit, bring your dog, or do whatever is YOU and let's go play!
