Bruno + Yuri | Times Square Lifestyle Session

Bruno and Yuri met over 8 years ago when they were set up on a blind date.  Yuri is a designer, and Bruno is on the police force in San Paolo Brasil.  Something just clicked on that first date, and they have been together ever since. Here’s the fun part:  these two just got married in Brasil and are on an epic honeymoon journey starting here in New York City, then they’re off to Tokyo, and finally Rome before heading home!  In each city they’re getting their pictures done to capture their honeymoon in all of its different stages.   I was honored that I got to capture them here in The Big Apple.

Lucky for them we had their session the day before Polar Vortex Parte dos visited Manhattan.  We started at the rooftop of their eclectic hotel Pod 39, headed to Grand Central, had adventures on the subway, literally ran through Times Square, and played at Rockafeller Plaza.  It was a photography session of epic proportions, and what I loved about our time is how genuine and grounded they both are.  They have such security in their love; it was beautiful to witness.

Yuri + Bruno enjoy your travels, and thanks so much for allowing me to be apart of your journey!

And Here We Are...

It's weird how things turn out.  If you asked me what I wanted to be when I was a little girl my response was:  Gloria Estefan, Amy Grant, or a professional tennis player.  I think my mom was a little worried that I didn't have much to "fall back on". Go big or go home right? One thing that I love about time is that really you never know how things are going to turn out.

I look back on my life, and there have been so many things that have turned out differently than I expected.  Three years ago when photography was more of a figment of my imagination I never would have guessed I would be launching my own business.  In fact, if you would have told me that at the time, most likely I would have laughed in your face.

But time has an interesting way of surprising us.

Here we are, and here I am taking a step into something unknown, and scary, and exciting all at the same time.  I feel like a little girl again as I say I want to be a photographer when I grow up.  Beyond what words can express I am overwhelmed with how my family and community have responded with a unified "Go for it".  They have pushed, challenged, asked the tough questions, and supported me through my dream chasing, and for that I am so grateful.

Without going further I must specifically thank Mike and Julie Colón for inviting me into their lives, family, and business for the last three years. Thank you both for investing your time and talent into me, and for believing in me.  Mike you took a chance on me, and you opened up to me  a whole new world of art and creativity.  God has used you both in my life in such powerful ways, and I am so so thankful for you both (and your rad kids) in my life!

I am excited for new adventures.  I am eager to get to know you and your story, and I am beyond honored to get to photograph people on one of the most precious days of their lives.

What it really feels like is that I am living a dream, and it is such a gift.

Welcome to this journey with me.
