Okay, okay, okay! I’m very excited to present to you the engagement photos of Alli and Alex. Alli and I go wayyyyy back. I’d say we were both the few crazy, energetic, funny, outgoing types at the church that we both used to attend. It was truly good seeing her again, and it’s good to know that she’s still the same. This is only my second time meeting Alex, but I like him! He’s a lot more silly than I originally thought, and I told him that. This engagement shoot was a whole lot of fun, and I’m sure you’ll be able to see that from these photos. I was really trying to push for fun, interesting, and out there. We had a lot of laughs just like old times. I loved it.

I didn’t tell Alex to look away. I think he was zoning out, since this was the end of the shoot. But I loved the way it came out.

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)

I’m going to start off this post with what should be the last narcissistic post (after my giant headshot in the last post.) But at least I don’t have a Twitter right? I’ll never get into that boat. I promise.  But I mean I really liked shooting this wedding because I genuinely had a lot of fun. I’m progressively having more and more fun at my weddings! I love my job. So at this wedding they had the coolest photo booth I have ever seen, both inside and out. And it prints out your photos..instantly! I was in awe! Here I am going around from table to table lugging my equipment around trying to organize a bunch of drunk and food-coma-fied guests to take some photos with the bride and groom as efficiently as possible, then there’s this machine (photo booth) that everyone runs to voluntarily all giddy and stuff. I couldn’t compete with this machine that sits in the corner of the reception. So I figured if I can’t beat it, I’ll join it icon smile Angela and Charles Wedding with Serena.

Props to the four entrepreneurs of the photobooth ( cubethemoment.com ) Check it out.

In the photo below are me and Serena of serenagrace.com . I had the honor and privilege of second shooting for this talented and fun (can you tell?) photographer.  We had so much fun taking photos, and having our photo taken!  If I may say, we made a pretty good team.  We both managed to arrange literally hundreds of people for the family/friend formal photos and take their photo in probably half an hour easy! That’s a record.

Alright, so here are some of the photos I took at the wedding, since i was only second shooting I don’t have many of the more important photos that a first shooter would.

Meet Charles and Angela! It’s cliche to say are really nice and easy to work with, but they really were nice and easy to work with. And I love that.
