It all began with the ring. Julia was not a girl for whom you just bought a ring. No, Julia’s engagement ring is a true antique from the 1950s that Peter spotted while they were vacationing in the Berkshires. How did they meet? Christmas party. She fell down, he picked her up, they kissed, and the rest was history.
Julia and Peter are another one of my 2011 couples for whom I got to have the advantage of amazing weather this summer to get their engagement photos done. Julia and Peter currently live and work in New York City so I took a sweet weekday trip down there to see them, I loooove any opportunity to travel for photography and exploring new places. * hint hint hint to prospective clients! *. The day was hot, but they worked their vintage glam / shabby chic look for this engagement session. You know how there are couples whom I could photograph forever and never get tired of it? Yeah, they’re one of them.
Julia does model a little bit on the side, who could blame her, look at her wooorking that awesome hair and make-up! Hair and make-up was done by the talented Nycki Rivera of Primp and Tease Salon, her work has been seen on TruTV, MTV, and VH1.
Big bear hugs from this little one to you two, and I’ll see you next year!
