East Coast Adventures – Justin & Mary and New York highlights!

December 15, 2014

We just got back a few days ago from a very JAM-PACKED and EXCITING week on the east coast!! Matt & I got to visit with some of our very favorite people, shoot a wedding and were able to visit some amazing places, including our 2 hour stop in New York!! It was such a great week!

Our first stop was Connecticut! We flew in late at night and arrived at Justin & Mary’s gorgeous 1800s home right on the water! We were able to spend a few days with them working on a special project, along with 6 other growing photographers – what a treat! Loved our late night talks with them by the REAL fire while roasting smores!

We even made a last minute decision at midnight to wake up early and do an impromptu photo shoot at Yale University in the morning before our special guests arrived. It was SO cold! Loved Matt’s line during the shoot “Ok just do this one without breathing!” 🙂


We woke up Saturday morning nice and early to start our journey toward our wedding destination in Chantilly, Virigina. We drove right through New York, so of course we had to stop in and see as much as we could in our 2 hour visit! I had no idea how lucky we were to visit during the Christmas season! It was SO beautiful! Our first stop was the huge tree at Rockafeller Centre! Right behind that was the outdoor ice rink.


Jimmy Fallon is Matt’s favorite, so we took a peak in the building where he does his shows and got the low down on how to try and get tickets for when we go back.

We did a bit of shopping to get out of the rain and ended our time in New York with Times Square!


Later this week on the blog: our visit with Katelyn & Michael (& Bokeh)! SO Fun!

    Looks like you guys had a great time! Though, I have to say, I think my favorite part of any picture is the Aladdin ad on top of the cab! 🙂
