A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to travel to New York City for a little bit of fun and a little bit of work. My sweet friend, Meghan Brown of Two Bright Lights, lives in Manhattan with her super classy and stylish husband Ivan. Thankfully I didn’t have to do too much work to convince Megan and Ivan to get in front of my camera for an NYC anniversary photo session in Manhattan!
I met Meghan in 2016 after I wrote a blog post about how much I loved the platform Two Bright Lights. Meghan is the manager of Two Bright Lights at the XO Group, Inc., and after that fateful blog post I wrote, she reached out to me to begin a professional partnership. Little did we both know our photographer to TBL manager relationship would quickly morph into a deep and meaningful friendship.
Meghan is sweet, sharp, and kind in everything she does. After knowing her for almost a year and a half and not yet meeting her husband, I was dying to finally meet the other half of her life that she told me so much about. We set up a time for their evening session on Friday night, the day before I flew home to South Carolina. We had a blast on a quick walk around Manhattan near their apartment building and in The Beekman Hotel for a few classy photographs of them together.
NYC Anniversary Photo Session
One my favorite things to do for someone is to provide them with beautiful images of the person they love or with the person they love. It’s my favorite thing to do, and it’s my favorite gift to be able to give to my friends. This is what this session was; just a gift to my sweet friend and her husband. She has poured so much of her time and energy into my life And my business. Photographing them together is the least I could do!
I hope you enjoy my favorite portraits from their Manhattan NYC anniversary photo session in New York City, and that you find your heart warmed by the obvious friendship and connection that Megan and Ivan share in these images!

So many beautiful photos from their NYC anniversary session, but this next one just might take the cake…
I loved meeting Ivan for the first time. I was clearly able to see how perfect of a fit he was for my friend. They moved together effortlessly; they laughed together with genuine joy. These two are truly meant to be…
Okay, wait, this one might be my favorite… Megs, WORK IT!!!
And while these two look like the fanciest and classiest of couples (they *are*, actually), they still know how to have fun too! This is just ONE blooper from their session, ha!
To wrap up, we slipped into The Beekman Hotel for a few photos of them cuddling together…
NYC Anniversary Photo Session
I hope you enjoyed a quick peek at this beautiful NYC anniversary photo session of Meghan and Ivan! I had the best time photographing them together, meeting Ivan for the first time, and being able to gift them with a few beautiful portraits!!
And to Meghan, my girl. You’re the real deal, hunni. A real one in a sea of fake ones. In this industry, friends are hard are to find and keep. But Meghan, you’re one of the ones I’m glad I did and I hope I do. Thank you for endlessly cheering me on and for sending me wine in UPS boxes that get lost every time you try.
