Barbara and Michael

You may remember Barbara and Michael from their amazing engagement party a few months ago (and if not, check out my August blogs!). We had originally planned to shoot in September, but the weather just wasn't cooperating. We finally got to shoot yesterday, and we could not have asked for a better day! The weather was amazing, and the sunset was spectacular! We had a great time taking photos and hanging out (for almost 3 hours!) at Jones Beach. I'm probably the only New Yorker who had never been there before! These two are a blast, and were up for anything! I'm not exaggerating when I say that by the end of the day, we were all soaked and covered in sand (not only did they get into the water, but I followed! Hey, you do what you have to for awesome shots!). I think our hard work was well worth it, don't you? (click the photos to enlarge!)

Wow, these pictures are amazing. Gorgeous couple and GREAT photography. The lighting is amazing. You made Jones Beach look like a little bit of Paradise. I bet October was better for the shoot because September might have meant the beach would still be a bit crowded. Keep up the good work!

Pictures look great! I'm sure the couple is thrilled! I'm never as worried about water as I am sand. Lens+sand=I don't want to even think about it. Maybe I'll see you at the PDN Expo!
