Kim + Frank are an adorable couple. We gelled with them from the very first moment we met them. Having a common love for all things healthy and natural didn’t hurt. But it was their excitement about our photography that cemented the opportunity to produce a very organic set of photos for our first session together. We can’t wait to join them for their wedding at the lovely Catlin Gardens.
Frank and I met in the spring. Our first few dates took place outside by the water, with flowers and lots of greenery. We fell in love in the summer, going to Mets games and taking long walks in the sun. Then, we got engaged above a snowy New York City in January. The only time of year left unmarked for us was autumn, so when I met Ulysses and Jenni, I immediately knew I wanted to do a fall themed engagement photo session.
My vision for the photo shoot included golden leaves and gorgeous scenery, and so we decided on a Winery as the destination for the shoot. The winery sits in a quiet, nestled haven about the Hudson River, with majestic colorful mountains in the background. As soon as we arrived at the photo shoot, I knew it was the perfect location. The day was cold and overcast, but Ulysses and Jenni inspired Frank and I to stay close together during the shoot. The romantic and quiet atmosphere allowed us to act naturally and let our love for each other come through into every shot. At the end of the shoot, Frank and I agreed that this day was our best and most romantic date since the day we got engaged.
As excited as I am for our wedding day photos, I absolutely cherish the engagement photos shot at Benmarl Winery. They reflect the love that Frank and I share for each other. At the reveal, I was so impressed with the beauty of the photography. My wall art piece hangs on my wall today, as a memory of this beautiful autumn day that Frank and I shared before our wedding.
