Andy & Yoko // Engaged in NYC

// Engagement

in she walked with a friend. post mimosa brunch. ready to watch some football. yet it wasnt even the season. 

and there Andy was. 

a flash, a moment that would be the pivot, the beginning of their lives together. a day that would propel them forward with each other permanently in each others lives.

we can thank the lord for all you can drink mimosa brunches mixed in with a little bit of fate.


a few weeks prior to their wedding in Tulum, Andy and Yoko had me over to their place in Brooklyn for a few days.  gave me the insider tour of NYC. their favorite spots, hidden gems that only a native would know of. i adore, beyond anything else, being able to spend real time with my couples. it’s not something that can always be done, but a few times a year it works itself out for me to see a little deeper into their lives, their love. and i think it completely impacts in the most beautiful way how i document them.

this shoot could also be known as the coldest human experience of my life. we just kept repeating, mexico. mexico. two weeks. i’m surprised our extremities didnt fall off.

andy and yoko are some of the best people. i could go on. lets keep it simple and say two such as them, deserve each other and the most wonderful joyous life together.

our deli man. i mean really. the cutest man around.

and off Andy goes to work…so Yoko took me on a tourist tour. amazing!

a day into the new year, Andy and Yoko had a small ceremony with all of Ney York invited, in Grand Central Station. The New York Times happen to be their videographer. you can see it HERE.

i love the web that brings people to me. a few years back i shot a crazy awesome 18 hour Indian wedding. (also hey universe, i want to shoot another Indian wedding FYI) And Yoko’s sister was there. She relayed the word on to Yoko and that’s how it all began.

i just love it. and am so blessed to have such incredible people bring me along.
