Lia & Rob | Engagement & Wedding Photography in New York & Italy

What to say about Lia and Rob’s engagement session in NYC? For me personally, one of the best shoots ever. The whole experience to traveling to New York for this amazing couple, meeting them in their Brooklyn home, having  a fresh yummy lunch prepared by Lia herself , chatting with Rob in Italian, and shooting them on none other than the Brooklyn Bridge=  Best. Shoot. Experience. Ever! We began under a rainy sky right outside their home. Lia & Rob had decorated their stoop with  fresh flowers, and a hand painted pumpkin from Lia’s mom! Lia and Rob showed us just how WRONG the stereotype of  the “Harsh New Yorker” is!!! They were some of the sweetest, most laid back, caring individuals we’ve photographed. They felt like long time friends after a matter of hours. From their home we proceeded to Lia’ favorite park where we shot a few timeless images  with a touch of editorial. We then took the subway (not missing a beat shooting through it) to arrive at one of my personally favorite shoot locations of all time: the Brooklyn Bridge. If you want good photo drama, just combine Lia, Rob, a storm, balloons, a flirty pink dress, and this bridge.

Lia and Rob– we are so entirely thankful for letting us be a part of your city and your world for one day. It was so fabulous, we still sigh at the thought of it. We know your marriage will be filled with as much love as your relationship holds. We are just so honored to be the ones capturing your amazing wedding in Tuscany Italy next Spring.

Lia’s reaction to these photos was too good, we had to post it here:

“There are no words! Rob is in Mexico City on business and woke me up at 12:30am when he thought he had a missed call from me. Of course in my sleepy haze I had to check your blog for the 20th time today (just in case) and there they were!!!!!! Now I am wide awake and called my mom to wake her too (and she is happy i did!!!!). I am so blown away by those pics I only wish Rob were here looking at them with me (but there is time for that!) I know NYC has some of the most talented photographers in the world but you ladies from Huntsville (via Germany and Italy) are as good as they get! Thank you thank you thank you! (not sure how i will sleep tonight – too giddy)”

December 8, 2009 - 12:25 pm Laurie Hantin - What artistry!! I applaud the way you have captured the essence of this majorly "in love, living in the greatest city in the world" couple. You truly have shown both these elements to their infinite advantage. How lucky for Lia and Rob to have these photos to enjoy throughout the years, as a reminder of this extraordinary time in their lives. How lucky for you, as photographers, to have two amazingly, beautiful subjects, and a backdrop (NYC) which, in my biased opinion, exceeds all others...Love you Lia & Rob...Can't wait for Tuscany!

December 14, 2009 - 10:05 am Diana - what a breathtaking session!! absolutely stellar job, ladies. i LOVE the diversity of the settings/outfits/moods, as if i was also taken along for the ride during the photo shoot. well, it is difficult to pick favorites here, but the very first brooklyn bridge one (after the subways) is something that i could EASILY see in ANY national magazine. <3 that one red balloon.

December 15, 2009 - 7:33 am Christiane - I am speechless ! Amazing photos, beautiful couple !!!

December 15, 2009 - 1:29 pm Lillie Mack - Beautiful photos...Balloons always make for such whimsical shots. One question that is boggling my mind: How did you manage to clear all the people off the Brooklyn Bridge to get these shots? That by itself is the work of a magician! :)

December 11, 2013 - 2:25 am Garett DiMeis - I know that you most likely get many emails from people, but I'm just starting off my photography career and I was wondering how you got such amazing pictures. Not in the since of how you took them, but I was wondering if you had any equipment or lighting, etc. I just bought a Nikon D70 , and would like to buy more things to get pictures to look like that. Also do you use the newest photoshop?

December 11, 2013 - 2:28 am Garett DiMeis - I was just wondering what equipment you used well taking these pictures such as lighting or anything else. I just bought a nikon D70 and want to know what else I should buy to get such good quality pictures like this. Also do you use photoshop?

As the cab took Christine and I from Florence to Chianti, we could not believe the painterly quality of the landscapes that reeled in front of our eyes. Green hills upon cypress trees upon perfect vineyards. We squealed with delight at the thought of being able to photograph a wedding in such glory. We counted our blessings in that cab that day.
