It was hard to believe that it had been just about a year since I last saw these two, as we trudged around their home turf of Staten Island for their wonderfully light-hearted and fun engagement session. This time around however, they would be on my home turf; a mere 11 minutes away from my home at one of my favorite wedding venues at The Stone House at Stirling Ridge. In a year’s time, they’ve collectively planned a wedding, planned a honeymoon and still found time to get published in print (on topics that are well beyond my limited expertise). Their Spring(ish) wedding kicked off the “Spring” wedding season for us, and we couldn’t have asked for a more awesome couple to have that distinction. On Kimberly & Burak’s big day, we shared lots of laughs, sparklers, s’mores and an inordinate amount of air-diving (for lack of a better word) on the dance floor that I’ve seldom seen in my years as a wedding photographer. You know what? I’ll take it!
