matt & i first had the pleasure of meeting atoya last spring. at the time it was a quick introduction, as she was just beginning jennifer’s wedding day makeup and i couldn’t wait to start taking images of the process! jennifer’s makeup turned out beautifully and we were once again struck by how many amazing people we get to work with in this industry- love it! so, of course, it was such an honor when we heard from atoya about her own wedding!
fast forward to an overcast, chilly february evening, when we had the pleasure of meeting sam for the first time and taking some engagement pictures with them. we’d been in touch with atoya leading up to their shoot and she expressed their love of the city landscape as well as her attachment to old hollywood, dramatic, black and whites. what a perfect vision for a shoot in midtown in february! the wind helped create a little sass and the city lights allowed us to shoot well into the evening and capture some out-on-the-town, more photojournalistic images as well. it was a great shoot; atoya & sam are so cuddly and sweet together, they were a joy to capture. they also know how to pull off some serious drama which worked so perfectly with her vision! bottom line, it wasn’t until we were done shooting that matt & i realized we were freezing- THAT’S how much we enjoyed our afternoon with atoya & sam. :)
absolutely my favorite:
atoya & sam, you guys are so perfect together. every second of our shoot with you was a joy and you guys were such good sports about all of the crazy locations we had in mind. ;) we really enjoyed working with your vision and we are so excited about your upcoming wedding!
