Have you been to New York Yet? This place makes me fall in love with it every single time I go — The Times Square Strip, Broadway, the smell of hustle in the air— That pizza that tastes out of this world from that little Italian pizzeria in the corner and the fact that the city never really sleeps —LOVE IT!

Though Paola & Elias reside in Queens New York & tied the knot recently — We decided to do a “Trash the Dress” Session in a place they had never been to before — Dumbo, Brooklyn NY. We had little time to plan this session but when I tell you that it exceeded my expectations I am not lying.

Paola had told me her wedding gown was not white — She said it in a tone of like (I hope you’re okay with that) I FROZE — My heart stopped for a few seconds WHHAAATTTTT???!!! I love out of the box brides! My ideal bride was talking to me — We had found each other ..& When I thought it could not get any better… She confessed to me she designed the dress herself* (gulp…gulp again*) Oh my Lanta! — Just wait until you see her gown! The setting of Jane’s Carousel was absolutely romantic and so different for this couple — It was plain magical! I think the place really took all of us back to thinking how life’s simple pleasures really are found in the little things — A carousel, feeling like a kid again, having fun with your spouse!

Thank you Elias & Paola for allowing me to capture some of the photos that will be carried on through your generations — I was reminded once more how beautiful marriage is, how we are God’s bride, and He longs for us and loves us uncontionally

Elias truly thinks Paola is a QUEEN ( & she is) So he bought her a few crowns — This one was one he gifted her with for their engagement session…
