Aarti and Phillip, are a force to be reckon with! They are simply so in LOVE! I met them at their apartment in Brooklyn for their neighborhoody intimate engagement session in Brooklyn. I knew they have a boardgames obsession from our phone consultation, so for the first part of their shoot they got busy with a game from their very vast collection. Even when one of them loses they are so adorable and supportive! We took a cab over to the Brooklyn Botanical Garden for more photos. Their chemistry and inability to keep their hands off each other was drew me most to these two. It was so easy to make photos of their love. Strong, loud and truck loads of it! Aarti’s quick wit and contagious laughter made me laugh endlessly, at one point I was laying on the garden ground holding my belly and laughing while the creativity just flowed. I wanted to end their shoot on a high, so I asked them to pick a song to listen to and just chill on some stairs. They picked ‘Shallow’ by Lady Gaga. When I say the force was strong with these two, I felt the world spinning, they have this effect on everything around them! Thank you Aarti and Phil for having me document these moments. I cannot even imagine how awesome the wedding is going to be now that I got to know you both better. Big shout out to Jeannie from C & G weddings for planning and playing fairy Godmother for all of us. If you are ever in need of a planner, Jeannie is simply the best as well as an amazing human being!
