Christine & Kenny’s High-Energy Coney Island E-session
Happy Monday everyone. 🙂 Kicking off this week is an engagement session that I’m 100% sure will keep your eyes glued to the screen. I know that for sure because that was how it was for me when I first laid my eyes on sporty Christine & Kenny’s energetic and rollicking awesome shoot!
Just how ASTOUNDING is this shot? We have the very talented Todd Laffler of Laffler Photography to thank for all the stunning images on this page. (You might recognize his work from Joanne & Nick’s Quirky E-session around Street Art-filled NYC and the recent Fearless Photographers feature). Todd tells me that this shoot is hands down his most favorite e-session to date:
Christine and Kenny were SO much freakin’ fun to photograph, I felt guilty getting paid for it! Thanks so much for rockin’ Coney Island guys, you are awesome and I can not wait to photograph your upcoming wedding!
Get ready for some seriously spectacular shots!
It’s time we met the beautiful couple! Kenny is here to share his and Christine’s sweet love story:
We met through mutual friends. I wasn’t in a space to date when we first met but every time I saw Christine I kept feeling pulled to her in a major heartstring sort of way. After a while I couldn’t hide how I was feeling anymore and had to tell her. Lucky for me she felt the same way too. That was about 3 years ago and I proposed to her on Valentine’s Day, 2011 at Bluehill in Tarrytown. We’re getting married this May on the Lower East Side.
I LOVE how Todd was able to capture both their sweet and wacky moments!
Kenny’s back to tell us about Coney Island’s significance:
We had it at Coney because it fits our aesthetic really well and we are both so playful. It has a lovely retro vibe which our wedding will have. We both love old jazz and swing and take swing dancing lessons. Plus it’s a Brooklyn landmark and we live in Brooklyn. We also had a fun date there (after Christine ran the half marathon) when we first started dating. The place is special to us.
Working with Todd was awesome! He is tireless and has a really sweet, playful energy that suits us perfectly.
Huge thanks to Todd for sharing his jaw-dropping images my way and congratulations on your engagement Christine & Kenny! Have a blast at your wedding (I know you will)! 🙂
