Real Couples // Engagement Photos in NYC: Jálynn + Tiffany

"Tiffany and I met for the first time on a January evening in New York City. It was my birthday, and I was celebrating with friends. Tiffany had been invited to the same bar by a mutual acquaintance. Tiffany recalls she was amazed by how quickly we connected, despite just meeting that night. I was taken with Tiffany’s quiet confidence, charming intellect, and sweet smile.

After discovering Tiffany and I had both attended boarding school in the Northeast, had the same major in college, and were both passionate about careers in public service, I was smitten. We closed down the bar that night, and after hanging out a few more times, we finally went out on a proper date."

From the photographer: These are two awesome women who are both working to make the world a better place in their everyday lives. Tiffany works in law and Jálynn works in a nonprofit in the education sector. This is an excerpt from their original email inquiring with me: "As two queer women of color, we’re committed to having an open and affirming wedding that feels authentic to who we are as a couple and our community of friends and chosen family who will be in attendance."

Story by Jálynn, one of the brides, and De Nueva Photography, as told to Amber Marlow.
