So, we took lovely PWer JDWeddingDay up on her offer to book a FREE photo session with her sister, Jacquie. She was so sweet, very accomodating, and she has such great attention to detail. We jumped at the chance to take more photos especially because we wanted to have mementos of one of our favorite places, Yankee Stadium!!!

This was our third engagement session and it was absolutely spectacular. Our photographer Megan Duffy whom I found on cragslist, knew exactly what we were looking for; we both loved her great vision and style. Best of all it was FREE! This shoot was very urban New York City and so US. We walked around LES, SoHo, and the East Village and she took random shoots. All of these sessions were so helpful. Not only did we get comfortable taking pictures with each other, but we also got comfortable in front of the camera. These have definitely helped us in preparing for our wedding photos.

I had so much fun with this little project I did to decorate the bottoms of my gorgeous shoes (sorry for the dark pics) - I encrusted mine and future hubby's initials in hand-appliqued rhinestones on the soles. It's all in the details.

This is my inspiration:
