I’m the photographer for the couple who likes to explore, is down to get a little messy and who doesn’t take themselves too seriously. I don’t want to just take photos of you - I want to make moments together. Let’s first connect and then create.
Let’s start off with the obvious— have you seen a more photogenic couple than Daisy and Orest? They are both complete naturals in front of the camera and it shows! What’s even more impressive than their “Magazine Couple Status” is how tangible their love is. The connection between Orest, Daisy, and Daisy’s daughter is so apparent, it truly is beautiful to see in person.
You’d never know it now, but Daisy and Orest met years before ever truly having a conversation! Orest’s best friend managed the hair salon where Daisy and her sister worked, and Orest would often come in to have Daisy’s sister cut and style his hair. After a few years, Orest finally asked who “the pretty girl” was and Daisy’s sister sprang into action! She snatched both Daisy and Orest’s phones to put their numbers in and set them up on their first date! Their first date was over 6 hours, and as Daisy describes it, the most amazing (and longest) date of her life.
Ever since, Orest has made sure Daisy and her daughter know how much he loves them. Orest even proposed with a ring designed to look like a daisy, inspired by her name. I mean, how romantic is that?!
I am so happy we captured these sweet moments of your family to celebrate your engagement. I had a blast shooting your session at NJ Botanical Gardens and absolutely love all of the images we captured together. All three of you are so full of joy, it truly is contagious.
Since this shoot, Daisy and Orest have tied the knot! Don’t miss the photos from their fairytale bohemian wedding at Mohonk Mountain House in New Paltz. You can check them out HERE.
