Stoker Adventures from November to January!

January 30, 2015

As I write this post, our living room is full of moving boxes. Our time in NYC has come to an end. Tear. Sad face. It has gone so fast but it has truly been incredible. In the middle of November, I wrote a post about the experiences David and I have had while we are living in NYC. We moved up here in August for David’s third rotation in his leadership program with Nielsen. The first half of our time here consisted of a lot of awesome weekend trips and outdoor activities but as we transitioned into winter, we stayed more local and explored more of the indoor things of the city! This second recap shows some of the memorable things we did from November until the end of January. We have one day left here and then we are going back to Florida for two weeks (yay family!! and a wedding!!). Then on Valentine’s Day (awww), we are saying “see ya” to the good ol’ USA and are heading to MILAN!

Behind the Scenes in 2014

December 31, 2014

Happy last day of 2014! Our year was full of incredible adventures and beautiful photographs! We started our year with beautiful weddings in Central Florida, lots of gorgeous engagement sessions in the summer, and spent the second half of the year shooting in New York. We navigated our way through Central Park, photographed in front of the NYC skyline at sunset, and froze our fingers during a winter wedding. SO many new experiences in 2014. Thank you to all of our 2014 clients. Thank you for inviting us to document these extremely important moments and for trusting us to provide you with beautiful images. We are honored to do this job. Before we ring in the new year, I wanted to reflect back on this past year and share some behind the scenes photos of Michelle Stoker Photography. Here’s a look back at David and I working in 2014…

Who knew that we’d be shooting in SNOW and on a NYC metro this year??

New York Wedding

Lauren and Rushad – Snowy Albany, New York Wedding

December 22, 2014

Lauren and Rushad had the most beautiful, magical winter wedding in Albany at 90 State in late November. This sweet couple and their bridal party braved the freezing weather for some INSANE shots in front of the New York State Capitol Building. One of Lauren’s friends commented on Facebook that “Rushad married an ice princess.” Love that! I can’t wait for you to scroll down and see their gorgeous outside photos! It was such a privilege documenting this wedding for two sweet people, who just happened to meet on their first year of residency in their ER rotation. Enjoy the story of the new Mr. and Mrs. Juyia…

Thank you Wedding Wire for featuring this gorgeous winter wedding!

Exploring the Financial District with @nyc

November 25, 2014

Are you on Instagram? Do you love New York City? If yes to both, then you need to be following @nyc. The face behind that handle is very sweet and talented Katja. She posts snapshots of this beautiful city on her insta a few times a day to her almost 400,000 followers! Whew, this girl has a dream job. She hosted an Instameet this past weekend for photographers/instagrammers to meet and explore the Financial District together. The event was held at the beautiful Gild Hall, a Thompson Hotel and hosted by the connecting Felice Wine Bar. The event was a wonderful time of networking, eating, drinking, and sharing insta photos! We ventured out and explored the corners and hidden gems of the Financial District. I brought my Canon camera and my 24-70mm L lens for these shots. Enjoy our views of FiDi!

Stoker Adventures from August to November!

November 17, 2014

You guys. It’s been more than three months since David and I left Florida! I’m experiencing COLD WEATHER all day, every day right now. It’s blowing my mind! Not hating it…. yet. We moved up to the NYC area in mid-August for David’s third rotation in his leadership program with Nielsen. We are so fortunate to be on this adventure and we have been taking advantage of being so close to so many beautiful sights. I wanted to share some of our highlights of trips, sight-seeing, and everyday living up here. We are here until the end of January and then back to Florida for two weeks and then our next adventure begins (and it’s a big one)!!!
