Engagement: Allison & Tiffany

From the couple’s photographer, Cassandra: For Allison and Tiffany, it was love at first sight. Playful, lighthearted, and endlessly making one another laugh, these lovebirds infuse joy in all who surround them.

Our original plans to visit a Nashville park for Allison and Tiffany’s destination engagement were very much canceled when the skies opened up and it stormed the entire weekend. We moved our session to the gorgeous Gaylord Opryland Resort, which featured architectural details, palms, fountains, and even beautiful New Orleans-style buildings — which all made for the perfect location to celebrate their upcoming “I Do’s.”

Wedding: Jania & Jessica

From Albert, Jania & Jessica’s photographer: These two ladies were absolutely a blast to work with, not to mention their families and their bridesmaids (who wore suits and ties to defy the norm) were fabulous the whole day! Not to mention the ladies’ love for one another shone throughout the whole day and set the mood and tone for the many years to come! It was an honor to photograph and ensure their memories live on forever!

Engagement: Allison & Alex

From the lovely Cass, Allison & Alex’s photographer: From the moment I met Allison and Alex, I already adored them. They have a refreshing and captivating type of love—one that makes you feel incredibly lucky to witness. When they’re together, they get lost in each other’s eyes and words, and the world around them dissolves. They’re head-over-heels and absolute soulmates.

Allison and Alex initially bonded at breweries over craft beers, and their love blossomed on long shared hikes. And so, for their sweet summertime engagement, we ventured into the woods as the golden sun poured down upon us, and delighted in a joyful, laughter-filled hike.

Wedding: Mirhanda & MB

From the couple: For most of our (admittedly short) engagement, we thought we were going to elope. Large gatherings are not really our thing, and we would much rather spend the day reading in a tea room. Ultimately, though, all 6 of our Southern parents got involved, and the rest is history.

In the end, our theme became “It’s Not a Wedding Without _______.” In place of gifts, our guests brought the one thing they thought was essential for any wedding to have. By the end of the day, we had flowers, dresses, cake, a photographer, and a trip to Asheville. One of our friends even brought herself as our last-minute officiant (Thanks, Mo!).

The day was wonderful, and we joke that we must be the only couple to be surprised by their own wedding!

Engagement: Ali & Sammi

From the couple: Ali and Sammi met (twice) in the fall of 2013, when they were both students at NYU Law School. Their first meeting took place at an event at the Stonewall Inn, hosted by the law school’s LGBT student group, aptly named “OUTLaw”, where, according to Ali, her very obvious romantic advances were rebuffed, and according to (an apparently oblivious) Sammi, a cute girl with a cool haircut was trying to make friends with her. When the ladies rendez-vous’d a second time (at—where else?—a school dance), thanks to the help of some mutual friends, the sparks were much more obvious. Sammi proposed first, just over two years later, while bringing Ali her weekly Saturday morning coffee in bed, and Ali returned the favor a week later, popping the question at the Met, in front of a gorgeous wall of windows looking out onto Central Park.

The couple, now both lawyers, live together in Greenwich Village, and wanted an engagement shoot that captured the spirit of the neighborhood where they live and where they fell in love. With the help of photographer Alicia Swedenborg, the ladies were able to realize their vision of a cozy downtown NYC winter wonderland shoot.
