Meet Nicole and Daniel. Say hello. This might be hard to believe, but they aren’t models, they’re just regular non-model-y people just like you and me. But man they photograph well, don’t you think? Nicole and Daniel actually got married years ago, and they were one of my first few weddings that I’ve ever photographed in my entire life. They probably don’t know this but they helped me get my career off the ground by hiring me. A few years later, they decided that they wanted to do a trash the dress session, and here we are.

This shoot, in case you can’t tell is very fashion inspired. Daniel is a tall handsome man with freckles. Nicole is a young and beautiful woman, also with freckles. Freckles = fashion, duh! No just kidding but they are a really beautiful couple, and thats why I wanted to do a fashion type of shoot with them.I’d also like to describe this shoot, as “romantic, rustic, gorgeous, eye-gasmic, peaceful, and uh-may-zing.”

There’s a video coming out for this too, so you’ll be able to see what it was like working with them and in that environment, but better yet, this video is going to be very very different from the rest of my videos, so you’ll just have to wait to see what I’m talking about. Anyways, enjoy!

I love this couple. I love!  I don’t even know where to begin with all my excitement.  Allison and Hok are authentic New Yorkers, and they’re some of the nicest people I’ve met. They are awesome. In fact, they are more awesome than awesome itself.

Let me tell you a little about the couple. Allison’s a Brooklyn girl, and she loves food, traveling, and everything wedding. Everything. That’s how she found me actually, she found me through my blog. The more I got to know her the more I realized she’s a lot like me. Both of us can’t seem to lie, and we both wear our feelings on our sleeves, meaning if we’re unhappy we’ll show it unintentionally, and there’s nothing we can do about it. She’s also very sociable, very cool, and very hip.

Hok likes seafood And I like seafood. Anyone who likes seafood is cool, period. And I think he said he’s going to have seafood at their wedding. I look forward to eating it, and I think Hok’s gonna make sure it’s gonna be some damn good seafood. icon smile Meet Allison and Hok. Theyre from NYC :) (Engagement)

These are their engagement photos!
