The couple featured on this post are near and dear friends of mine who happened to fall in love...
Tina and Brian are made for each other, I am so thrilled to share these photos shortly after their engagement, and I would like to also congratulate them on becoming Mr. & Mrs. on April 14, 2017!
This post is Tina & I just could not wait any longer to plan a photo session in Downtown Albany after she told me she was engaged. Brian had kept the ring in his pocket for about 6 months before popping the question, and their wedding is highly anticipated amongst our families.
It just so happens that Tina is my cousin, and we have been the closest of friends for over 20 years. Brian happened to also be a friend of my brother since middle school, so all of us kids go way back. In the summer of 2007, Brian and Tina began their love story.
We began at Parish Pub House at 388 Broadway, a frequently visited location for these music lovers.
388 Broadway is previously known as Red Square. I am glad the building still pays homage to its original name by keeping its hue.
They are each others One & Only, see what I did there? <3
Next we relaxed for a few snaps in front of the NYS Education Building.
I have to include these images with their kitty, Ophelia.
Next, a wardrobe and location change:
I loved their sophisticated look, paired with the iron work on this old church door.
A few details; Tina's ring is a unique ring, the center stone is a Pink Tourmaline (her birthstone, and favorite color), with white and pink sapphires to offset. Good job, Brian!
This next one is a favorite of mine from their session:
Some more bling...
They make one great-looking couple, loving the black & white on the left!
And we continued the great-looking couple vibe with this iconic skyline too
Another favorite of mine:
I used the next one as my Facebook teaser, if you haven't liked Photojennic Images yet, feel free to visit and do so. Go ahead, I'll wait ;)
And another b&w version never hurts.
I loved the patterns in these images
Speaking of fun patterns:
This one is yet another favorite, because it's totally their personality. I love how happy they both look:
Image on the right is yet another favorite of mine!
They really made my job easy, but let me tell you how hard it was to choose which ones to share!
That wraps up this post, can't wait for the wedding!!
And so, without any further delay, I present the future Mr. and Mrs. Hartmann. Congratulations you two!!
