Summer on the North Fork brings out lots of families to spend time in this beautiful area. The Tully Family loves it out here and we had a blast photographing that happiness they feel when they are here. One of the sweetest moments of the session was when the boys ran down the beach to Daddy when he had just gotten home from work. It was the best! They were so darn excited to jump all over him and give him hugs and snuggles. Here are a few of my favorites to share:

I love seeing families grow. I photographed Ella when she was a newborn and a couple weeks ago I got the chance to do the same with her sweet baby sister Lara. These two are the cutest. Ella made me tea and we read books. Lara just loved looking at me funny wondering why on earth I could possibly be pointing that black thing (my camera) in her face! Watching them all as a family is something that makes me smile and always reminds me of why I love what I do. Here are a few of my favorites to share:

Jaclyn and James definitely have two of the best smiles I have ever seen and they are always on their faces. They bring out a happiness in each other and it is clear the moment you meet them that they are perfect together. They chose the beautiful Bedell Cellars to have their wedding with their sweet families and their closest friends. The stunning details that Jaclyn and her Mother added put the whole event over the top. The party went all night with everyone dancing to the tunes of the Times Square Orchestra. It was a wonderful celebration with an abundance of love all around!

Jaclyn sums up their love story nicely. “James and I met at Providence College. He graduated from Providence and I went on to transfer to Barnard College. We lived in the same zip code that first year we dated in Providence and then it took us another 6 years for both of us to live in the same zip code. It was worth the wait ;)”

A special thank you to my talented friend Lisa Nicolosi  for second shooting with me. You are amazing!

Pellegrini Vineyards was the beautiful backdrop to this wonderful wedding celebration that Stephanie and Chris shared with their families, their adorable dog Widget, and their closest friends from all over. It was a gorgeous day and the party was full of laughter and dancing! When I first met Stephanie and Chris I instantly enjoyed their company, they are smart, funny and very sweet together. Chris has this cute dimple that pops out when he smiles at Stephanie. Just watching them look over at each other made me see how much they love each other.

Stephanie tells the story of how they met best so here you go: “Over the summer of 2006, exactly 10 years ago, I was working at a Bistro in Garden City with Chris Meroles  (Chris’ best man). One day, Chris came in for a sandwich and I remember him leaving and me saying to Meroles, “Who is your friend? He’s so cute!”

After that day, Chris came in for lunch every single day. He would sit with me while I took my break or go on deliveries with me. I remember staring out the glass window of the Bistro waiting for his spray-painted black car to pull up and when it did, my heart would skip a beat. I was head over heels. Only, he didn’t ask me out for a LONG time. It wasn’t until August 8 (a couple months after this was going on) that he finally asked me out. He was flirting with me at the register and one of the other guys that worked there asked if he was ever going to ask me out. He finally did and we went that night to the movies to see Talladega Nights. I still have the movie stub and I remember it like it was yesterday. I pulled up to his house in Glen Head and he ran out carrying his shoes (because he never wore shoes then) and we went to the deal movie night at the theater. After that, it was a whirlwind. I was leaving for school in a few weeks so we spent all our time together. Two weeks into us dating, Chris told me he was falling in love with me. I felt like the luckiest girl in the world.

Even though I was a kid then (I was only 18), I knew our love was real, but I never would have imagined it would take us here… We made it through a long-distance relationship for 4 years (including 4 months when I was in Barcelona) and 10 years worth of ups and downs. We literally grew up together and I love him more today than ever.”

I would say they have a truly sweet love story and I could read it over and over again.

A special thank you to my good friend and talented photographer James Collier for coming out from Brooklyn to second shoot this gorgeous wedding with me!

Erin and Scott got married this past Saturday! These high school sweethearts have such a sweet connection that your heart just explodes watching them look at each other. They celebrated with their families and their closest friends at the gorgeous Brecknock Hall on one of the hottest days we’ve had out here. And let me tell you that did not stop anyone from having an amazing time at every point of the day. A special thank you my talented and super sweet friend Katrina Wallace for coming all the way from Sedona, AZ to second shoot for me. Here are a few sneak peeks to share:
