Stephanie + Scott :: Brooklyn Bridge Park Engagement

Sweet. Genuine. Adorable.

Brooklyn has never been more beautiful. Sunny 71 degrees and bustling with kids and people taking photos of the perfect NYC view. This happy couple came floating around the corner with smiles and a big hug ready! They were warm and friendly just like all teachers should be. The Brooklyn Bridge Park is one of my favorite places to shoot. The sunsets here are the best and the views are unbelievable. On this specific pier you get the Brooklyn Bridge on your left and the Manhattan Bridge on your right. There is also the best pizza joints to grab some food and Jane’s Carousel to make you feel like a kid again. We took full advantage of all of these things!

We really enjoyed our time with Stephanie and Scott. Two teachers in love. Absolutely adorable couple and we are so excited to shoot their wedding, too!

Jillian + Arthur :: Atlantic City Boardwalk Engagement

Energetic. Spirited. All smiles.

It was our first time in Atlantic City. Casinos line the boardwalk where the people fill the beaches for the last bit of warm weather.

Meeting couples for the first time is always a little nerve wracking. You want to make a good impression. You want to connect and establish a friendship. That is the beauty of the engagement session. I can honestly say this is the first time we have met a couple in a casino! I was coming up the escalator in the Tropicana Casino as they were about to come down the opposing escalator. I pointed and yelled “Hey, there’s my bride and groom!”. The energy from these two is magnetic. We all instantly connected right there in the middle of all the casino chaos. Happy, happy, happy. These two are HAPPY! We were so happy to finally meet them face to face.

New Jersey has had a very mild summer. It’s almost felt like Spring for 4 months! Mother Nature decided to change things up and it was a blistering 90 degrees with 85% humidity. You would never be able to tell how hot it really was by looking at these two love birds. The wind, the humidity, the heat- it all added up to H.O.T. This had to be one of the craziest sessions we have shot. Why, you ask?

1. The storms held off until we were finished shooting! Yeah!

2. We asked a man for leftover pizza to feed to the birds. He looked at me funny, but gave the bread anyways. HA!

3. A Hookah Bar let us come into their white pillow wonderland to shoot !

4. We found a cool Life Guard Boat on the beach that was a perfect prop!

5. The sunset was absolutely PERFECT for the last 10 minutes of the shoot before the storm rolled in.

6. We found a towel to wash & dry our feet off after being covered in sand. I know that seems weird, but have you ever tried washing and drying your feet as you get off the beach? Thank you Mr. Towel.

 

Cheers to these two love birds.

5 Items for a Bridal Emergency Kit :: By Brittany Maio

Dear Bride,
The wedding is almost here, YAY!!  You’ve been spending days, months or possibly even years planning out your special day. I’m sure you’ve thought about putting together a wedding day emergency kit and if you haven’t -definitely put the task of making one on your Maid of Honor’s to do list! There is nothing more calming than knowing you have a solution for everything that could possibly happen on your wedding day. The tricky part to making an emergency kit is knowing what to put in it and don’t worry there are lots of sites that have lists to give you some ideas. As a wedding photographer who has been to more than my fair share of weddings I have some suggestions that you may not have thought of.
Bridal Emergency Kit by POPography.org_841
Here are my top 5 things that should NOT to be forgotten in your Bridal Emergency Kit:
Q-Tips : For that moment when happy tears begin to fall, you don’t want to smudge your make up! Tissues are great, but most wedding gowns don’t have pockets to put used tissues in. This is what makes q-tips the best, you can slip them right into your bouquet before the ceremony! You can pull it out to wipe your tears and slip it right back in when your done.
Double sided tape : You would be amazed at how many times I’ve used double sided tape to fix a crisis. From a fallen hem, to keeping your wedding band in the adorable glass holder you found on Etsy! There are so many little things that this sticky solution can help with. Just a few more examples: holding a garter in place, keeping a stray flower situated in your bouquet, or even patching a small hole in your dress liner! Never underestimate the power of two sided sticky!
Scissors : So you have your something borrowed and something old, but what about everything else being used on your wedding day? For a lot of brides, you’ve purchased a few new items for your special day. So make sure you have something to take those tags off. The most dangerous tag without scissors is always the veil, be sure you have something to snip those loose strings, tags and even to help bend a crooked earring stud back into place.
Crazy glue : This is another sticky one! Crazy glue is to fix the bigger things that the tape can’t. So when the knife to cut the cake with ends up broken, or when someone accidentally pops a stone out of your hairpin, when a heel breaks or any number of things happens- a few drops of this glue can keep your from getting stuck in a tough situation!
Band-aids : An oldie, but a goodie! Band-aids are a must! Blisters, small rub pains, poked fingers, paper cuts, or any number of little boo boos can be fixed with a simple band-aid! You would be amazed not that brides forget to pack these, but that they run out, so make sure to pack enough of these little helpers!
Brittany Maio Bee Alive Photography_840
I hope your wedding day doesn’t need any of these “emergency” items, but I hope you pack them just in case, I know they have saved the day for me!
Cheers,
Brittany

Syphon Fitness :: New York City Yoga

It’s not everyday you get to shoot Yoga in New York City. But when you do–its pretty amazing.

Everyone is put in your path for a reason. I just love how life will place someone in your life and keep bringing them back around when you least expect it. Mikey is a friend from back in the day when I used to hang out in Dallas, Tx. We spent many a night on the dance floor enjoying House Music. He moved to Florida and started his fitness business- Syphon Fitness. He is extremely talented. He is extremely passionate. And he is extremely peaceful. He gave me a real sense of peace when we walked around the crazy streets of New York. The hustle and bustle, people chattering, sounds of nature- and yet he would be in a state of bliss and stillness a mist all of the chaos. It really was beautiful.

I am so grateful he thought to reconnect with me in NYC for this Yoga shoot.  Cheers to your successes and we look forward to watching your business grow! Look forward to seeing you again.

Namaste.

Leaha
