A year ago April, we signed up to be exhibitors at our first bridal expo. As we prepared our sample material, we were so excited about the prospect of talking to so many potential clients. The turnout at the show wasn’t all that great – we only spoke with a few couples that day – but it must’ve been fate that brought Nicole and James over to talk with us that day. I remember thinking to myself “I hope we hear back from them” as they walked away.
Well, a few weeks later we got an e-mail from Nicole requesting a meeting to discuss pricing and availability. And the rest, as they say, is history.
We had a blast photographing Nicole and James’ Engagement Session at Benmarl Winery last fall. After that session, we could hardly wait for their wedding to come. The wedding was everything we expected – fun, family, excitement, adventure, and emotion. Nicole and James, we hope that we were able to capture it all so that you can remember it forever. Thanks for being such big fans of our work, and we wish you nothing but happiness.

Nicole and James wanted to stop at their apartment to take some photos on the grounds. Their adorable dog, Miso, got in on the action too.
When we got to Villa Borghese, we had some quiet moments on the outdoor terrace.
Nicole and James had their whole first dance choreographed.
The cake was provided by La Deliziosa Bakery in Poughkeepsie and it was simple and elegant.
James prepared a photo slideshow of images from their childhood through present time. It was a surprise for Nicole and all the guests, and I think from the reactions in this photo you can tell everyone really enjoyed it. We were honored that James used so many of the photos from our engagement session in the slideshow.
Congratulations Nicole and James!
