Amanda & Giuseppe | Bartow-Pell Mansion Bridal Session

Bridal sessions are always a favorite time of mine to connect with a couple after they've settled into their new chapter together. I've had the privilege of capturing so many beautiful moments for Amanda and Joe, and this occasion was no exception. 

Conceptualizing shoots with Amanda, Mazou Makeover's, insanely talented makeup artist is always exciting. Our ideas vibe so well it's impossible not to feel like a little kid heading to a playdate when we collaborate on a project. Amanda's wedding gown was sooo beautiful, it was only necessary to showcase this Pnina Tornai one last time before she preserves it. 

As someone who struggles to put on mascara, I am so thankful to Amanda for my special occasion makeup over the years, and even more amazed that she did her own for her wedding and this session. Christina Lambrou- also of Mazou, is another artist I could never live without and is responsible for Amanda's stunning goddess locks. 

I am so grateful for this year of wonderful sessions and could not have dreamt of a more perfect one to end with as I begin my "shooting maternity leave." Now I pray frantically to the productivity gods to finish all my editing projects before this baby comes!!

Thank you to my husband and second shooter, Alex, for helping me with this session and my shooting marathon this weekend. 

Congratulations to Amanda & Joe. I absolutely adore you guys and am so happy for you both.
