Amanda and I met in 2008 when we started working for the same photography company. Even though we didn't work together very long, we stayed in contact over the years. She recently moved to Israel with her boyfriend at the time(now fiance) so I was not sure when I would see her again.
We setup a meeting with Amanda, Daniel and Amanda's family to meet them and show them our work. Sitting with all of them was a lot of fun, and we felt welcome right away. They told us the story of how Amanda and Daniel met, and how they spent the first portion of their relationship talking through Skype because Daniel was in Israel, and of course they told us about the proposal. After finishing our discussion with the family, we were scheduled to head out and shoot engagement photos for Amanda and Daniel.
We went to the Westbury Gardens on Long Island for their shoot. The gardens were filled with so many different textures and environments for us to work with. There were all different pockets of flowers, trees, and ponds. There were also many manmade elements to work with from a mansion to bridges to gazebos. It also helped that Amanda and Daniel were a fun couple to work with!
In October, we will be shooting their wedding and we could not be more excited!
