They say good things come along when you least expect it.  For Kelsey and John, this just happened to be the case.

It was February in New York. John and his best friend were walking up 5th Avenue in search of a new wallet and an escape from the cold. When they came upon the Coach store, they decided to duck inside and have a look. It is funny how sometimes the smallest decisions can have the largest impacts on our lives.

It was just another day at work for Kelsey, that is, until she saw John walk into the store. Getting the sense that they needed some help, Kelsey went over to see what she could do. In the search for the perfect wallet, John and Kelsey began joking amongst themselves and quickly realized how much they have in common. John purchased the wallet and then disappeared back onto the city streets. Knowing that the chemistry they felt together was not something that comes along every day; Kelsey used John’s receipt to find him on Facebook. The next evening they had dinner together and the rest is history.

Kelsey and John, you are inspiring. It takes only moments to know how much you two truly care about each other. Your ability to laugh and just enjoy life together will make for many happy times in the future. Beautiful both inside and out, it was a pleasure spending the evening with you in SoHo. I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I do!

We started the shoot at 7:00 p.m. on the corner of West Broadway and Prince.  Kelsey and John were dressed impeccably, as always.
Ooh la la..getting up close and personal right from the start!
Obvious in their eyes, smile, and the soft touch of their hands, these two have found true happiness.

My very talented second shooter, Mekina Saylor captured this photo!

A quick change of clothes moved the vibe from city chic to romantic.  A special thanks goes out to Mekina Saylor for styling the hair piece!

Here the couple is sharing a sweet kiss in SoHo.  The way John cares for Kelsey is something I think every girl looks for in a man.
This is one of my favorites from the day.  It was hard to pick because Kelsey and John look AMAZING in EVERY PICTURE!

I will end this post with a cute picture of Kelsey and John posing with their playbills from RAIN.  Seeing a Broadway show is one of Kelsey and John's favorite ways to spend time together and a great way to keep their love for each other alive.

  3. Amy,
    I really like several of the photos. The photo of Kelsey laughing in the street, while being dipped is very good and you effectively captured this moment. I also like the photo in the water and demonstrates how you use the environment to create interesting photos. The photos of John and Kelsey in and out of focus are interesting and creative. My favorite it the B&W photo of John looking at Kelsey and she smiling and looking so happy. You can see that John knows how lucky he is and she looks so happy to be with John....priceless!
