David and Christine's Engagement Session

 

 

When Dave asked me to be the photographer for his wedding and engagement, I was thrilled. I met him nearly ten years ago at SUNY Orange, the first college I attended. A few years later, after I transferred to the School of Visual Arts, I had the pleasure of seeing Dave again, there, at my second college. At SVA, Dave, a painter and graphic artist, met Christine who was studying animation. That was eight years ago. In the span of their relationship these two have endured a lot together; most notably, the two open heart surgeries Dave has had in the last 18 months. 

While Dave is home recovering from his second operation, Christine works as a Spirits Manager at Whiskey and Wine Off 69. Together, these two share an apartment with their Boston Terrier, Buster; their gorgeous cat, Lily, two chinchillas and a blind rabbit! When I first visited these two at home for our consultation, I was overwhelmed by the cuteness. 

We chose to spend the majority of our session in historic Green-Wood Cemetery, just blocks from where they live in Windsor Terrace. Interesting fact: Dave has family that are permanent residents on the grounds of the place he had his engagement session - strange but true! Enjoy!
