Engagement Shoot at Fire Island Lighthouse

     Nadia and I have been best friends for almost 10 years now, so photographing her engagement shoot was obviously a given!  And I definitely had to do this shoot because I have the honor of being one of her matrons of honor (though I still try and call myself a maid of honor so I do not sound so old!),  so I cannot photograph her wedding.  After a lot of back and forth, Nadia chose the Fire Island Lighthouse for her shoot.  Neither Anne nor I have ever shot on Fire Island, so of course we were excited for this opportunity.

     It was a VERY hot and sunny day but Nadia and Joe were troopers.  We parked at the last lot and walked along the boardwalk to the lighthouse stopping along the way at different locations for our shoot.

     The best part about the shoot was watching the interactions between Nadia and Joe during the shoot.  It is always a much better shoot when the couple can let loose and have fun!  Joe was very playful with Nadia, and had us laughing the whole way!  There are a few shots/outakes that we were not allowed to post because of there... ahem... graphic nature.   But that just added to the hilarity of the shoot, and made Joe and Nadia much more comfortable while shooting the usable images.

      And through all of the fun images, we were also able to shoot some truly stunning and romantic images that clearly show how in love the two of them are.

     Even as we started our stroll back to the car, Joe and Nadia were willing to continue the shoot from a piggyback ride to a little PDA action!

      I am looking forward to seeing my best friend marry the man she loves on 6.16.13  (even if I am not allowed to shoot her wedding)!
