UPPER EAST SIDE ENGAGEMENT: ADAM + SHARI

I always ask my couples to share something fun about themselves in the contact form on my website because I think it really shows a lot about the type of people they are! Shari's response made me love them right away - "I secretly love Mariah Carey's music, and Adam is 100% a trooper for dealing with it." Girl, we all secretly love Mariah Carey! :)

I met Shari and Adam at their Upper East Side apartment for some gorgeous rooftop views! On a cloudy October day, it was a true blessing to see the sun show it's face for a few glorious minutes of magical light! Look at that beautiful glow behind them!

The couple enjoyed a favorite bottle of wine that they had been saving for a perfect occasion! This bottle was from the only vineyard to use grapes from both Napa Valley and Sonoma County. I don't even like red wine and I loooved this one!

We then walked to the famous William Greenberg Desserts for their signature Black & White cookies that have been voted #1 in NY! It was definitely the best Black & White I've ever had! Mmmmmmmmmm, should have bought like 15 to-go! Ya know...to, uh...share with friends.  :)

We ended the session with a stroll through Central Park right as the sun disappeared and the street lamps turned on...it was magical!
