Always nice to work for friends. I met Erik long before I photographed his engagement when I was recruiting photographers and videographers to work with here at Pivko Photography. Erik came out and shot with me and we immediately hit it off. It's hard not to like the guy, he has an infectious laugh, a warm presence, and he works hard. We worked together several times when he popped the question, not only to Devon, but then to me about shooting his wedding in Brooklyn. Really warmed my soul to get the chance. I then had the pleasure of meeting Devon at a delicious dinner in Montclair, NJ. I was thrilled to find out she is hilarious, smart as hell, and just as warm a presence as Erik. The two make a great couple which should be completely obvious by the selection of images below.
Devon and Erik said they wanted to do an engagement sometime in the Spring in Brooklyn. Well they just so happened to pick the perfect day of the perfect week for the Cherry Blossoms in the Brooklyn Botanic Garden (see below!). It was an incredible setting, and we really hit a groove during the engagement session when we would start "cute" and then go "stupid" in just about every spot we stopped at. Some of the "stupid" shots are my favorite of the day, and I think they really summarize how much fun it is to be around these two lovely souls. Congrats you two!
