When he said I love you… it was full of genuine passion and true, raw joy. When she looked at him, it was with big and beautiful adoring eyes.
10 years later, Sarah + Jeff’s love for each other is stronger than ever.
Who would have thought that when Jeff very smoothly asked Sarah to be his back-up date to prom, a forever and ever love story would begin…
Our engagement session began at Sarah + Jeff’s house, just outside Huntington village on Long Island. They have a totally rad and incredibly amazing sense of style in interior decorating. Nothing is by chance. Every aspect meticulously planned, many with a backstory.
Including the house itself.
Originally Jeff’s grandfather’s house, they have transformed their home into a creative space where they’ve invited many musician and artist friends to lay their head while they needed a place to stay for awhile.
Holidays were invented at Gramps House. Grampsgiving, the night before Thanksgiving, is a time for all their friends to get together for one epic potluck. For DIY Christmas, artisan Christmas gifts are handmade by all party guests.
Gramps House is a place where many memories have been created, friendships have developed, and most importantly, a love story is unfolding.
We headed to Huntington’s Coindre Hall with the other two members of their family, Buoy and Porter. They had a lot of fun making tons of friends at the dog park, but impressed us big time with how well-trained they were with posing for a few photos.
Sarah + Jeff’s engagement story wouldn’t be complete without a quick trip to Caumsett State park. It’s home to this monstrous big tree, where many couples have romantically etched their initials.
Years later, Sarah + Jeff returned to find their initials in a sea of letters.
Jeff just didn’t etch their initials in the tree all those years back. He etched their initials way up in the tree. The dude doesn’t just sport a monumental beard. He’s one heck of a tree climber.
Congratulations Sarah + Jeff. We are super excited to capture your forever I Do’s this October as you tie the knot at Long Island City’s stunning Metropolitan Building.
