MATT+EMILY, YANKEE STADIUM, SURPRISE PROPOSAL and ENGAGEMENT SESSION

surprise proposal yankee stadium engagement

When we first received Matt’s inquiry through our website here on our contact form, we were at first in awe! We couldn’t believe that this opportunity was presenting itself. When we finished our consultation with Matt over the phone, we were then so overjoyed and excited, as it was very evident how much he loved Emily, his girlfriend, and how intentional he was about proposing marriage to her!

See, Matt was flying with Emily from Kentucky to New York, where one of their special visits was a private tour at Yankee Stadium. But this was a set up! Matt was in cahoots with the great team at Yankee Stadium, and when he hired us, we were to pose as the other winners of the private tour. The plan: snap some discreet photos during the tour, and then when we got behind home plate (what!! we couldn’t believe it!), he would pop the question and #shesaidyes ! This was all a perfect set up for his girlfriend, as she is a huge Yankees fan! (This was really also fun for us, despite Tim being a die-hard Red Sox fan, and Steph being a Queens-bred Mets fan).

Then the moment was nearing, and Tim was Steph’s practice model to test for lighting behind home plate, where Matt would pop the question! Matt and Emily walked over to pose for a picture with the tour guide (like we did), but Matt pulled out a heart felt letter, and ended with going down on one knee, to ask her to marry him. The board read “I may strike out, but Emily will you marry me?” It was so beautiful guys!! and we were overjoyed to be their photography team (of course making sure not to step on the grass, strict rule, or climb on the bench in the dugout - oops!).

We have been looking forward to deliver their gallery, and now that we have, here are some of our absolute favorites from their Surprise Proposal and Engagement session at Yankee Stadium. Love!

There were many sweet moments on the tour for the two of them and we had a blast too! It was actually quite an adventure for us to work together and pretend like we were taking pictures of each other, when we were actually taking pictures of Matt and Emily. What a rush, she almost caught us about three times (haha!) We visited so many cool spots in the Stadium, where we were particularly excited to walk through Monument Park, and even sit in The Judges’ Chamber. Being there was just that much more exciting because Matt and Emily’s proposal and engagement session was actually our very first full photography job as husband and wife (since we officially were married in May 2019 !! — more to come on that on our Catholic marriage blog).

Please join us in congratulating Matt + Emily on their engagement, and praying for them during this special time in their lives as they prepare to enter into marriage.

Their love for each other inspires us, and we really want to take the time to thank them for saying Yes to each other, and for all the couples who are making this commitment too. It’s so important to remember what you’re saying Yes to, and we are so grateful to photography such meaningful moments for the couples we have worked with. Married life is such a beautiful Grace, through the ups and down, but always together.

Our Photography Favorites | 2018

Um, what? We cannot believe that it is yet another year of us getting to do this, and to do it together. God is blessing us in this storm and we are so GRATEFUL for the opportunities we have had this past year. Well, the last months of this last year have been so needed, and refinement and pruning is a necessary process yall (Can I get an ‘Amen?’).

We do have so much catch up to do with sharing more images on our blog, but here are just some our 2018 FAVORITES. This will be so fun to look over in the years to come, to see our progress and our growth, and to reminisce in the beautiful memories of the beautiful couples and families, and persons, we have met along the way.


We hold you in our prayers. May this new year , 2019, be UNPRECEDENTED in Love for you and your loved ones.

The New Year is a good reminder, that just like every new day, you can start over, be better than the year before, than the day before. And that it’s always worth it to continue: onward and upward!

Hubbard Park Engagement Photos | Chris + Alivia get married

Meet Chris and Alivia.

They are one of the nicest neighbors I have ever had! They have big hearts, hearts for love; they would always offer me food, and Lord knows, that is the way to my heart. (Tim knows that too haha). This couple also loves God and inspires us with their dedication to each other, being best friends first! They are also so darn cute together. Fun Fact: Chris styled their outfits for their engagement session photoshoot. WIN!

These two had a beautiful Fall wedding reception at Lighthouse Point Park in New Haven , and they were blessed with glorious rains! They say it’s good luck, but for us, as Christians, we know that Water is an important symbol of Renewal. So, Chris and Alivia, may everyday be blessed with showers of Renewal, as you continue on your journey of Life together, seeking the Love of Christ first, for God’s Love knows no end. May your Love grow with every day, as you appreciate each other more, and care for each other’s soul, welcoming all of life’s little and big adventures, always together. Amen.

Readers, we hope you enjoy some of our favorite images from Chris and Alivia’s Engagement Photo Session in Hubbard Park, Meriden, Connecticut.

We Love our Mother | Small Business Branding Photography + Indoor Lifestyle Photoshoot | Bronx, NY

The month of May is beautiful for many reasons, not just to us, but to many people around the world. Of course, we are so excited that Spring is finally in full bloom.The Month of May is also, the Month of Mary, the one woman in the entirety of existence who suffered much with great love; additionally, today's month of May started with the feast day of St. Joseph--talk about a powerhouse month for family and work--truly great examples of laboring with love and something we aim for in everything we do as well.

For us in particular, this month marks many special events, both private and public, including new ventures! And, perhaps if you stick around and keep reading our updates, you will learn and see why (all we can say right now: is please keep us in your prayers!! It is greatly appreciated). Let us, at least say, that we have continued to learn much about love, and are more committed than ever to live our lives together, with and for Love as The Goal. In just a couple of weeks, it will mark our 3 year anniversary! This one is going to be extra special because of some really exciting news that we can't share just yet... But hang in there, it's almost time!! Let's just say we really look forward to collaborating with our new friends at Glorious Moments Photography.

Before we continue any more on our own emotional joys, we want to highlight a great Mother that we had the privilege of getting to know this past month. She is the owner of one our new favorite small businesses, Rose's Mama Creations. From artisanal drinks, to colorful and sweet chocolate-covered strawberry-rose-bouquets, and custom designs like this birthday balloon featured below, she is truly a creative and dedicated small business owner. With a heart for her daughter, she is an entrepreneur who, just like Mother Mary, does all things for the love of her family. We respect mothers who live this Truth in everything they do (just like our own mothers), and we both look forward to the day when we can take part in that Truth when it comes time to start our own family. 

Here are some of our favorite images: both branding for her small business, and of her beautiful baby girl who recently turned 7 months!! (P.S. These are her very own sweet treats and custom made balloons!)

Her Mother's Day treats are going on now--be sure to order some for yourself or the mother that makes all the difference in your life!

Message her here and let her know we sent you ;) She will deliver to you/your loved one--and just in time for any last minute Mother's Day gifts. Enjoy and may this month of May be filled with Love of Family.
