There’s nothing I enjoy more than photographing a friend’s Central Park engagement session, and one more reason I love being a New York City engagement photographer. A savvy and talented fashion stylist and personal shopper to NYC’s A-list, I met Melissa shortly after moving to NYC and we’ve been great friends ever since. So I was thrilled when she told me she wanted me to be her wedding and engagement photographer. This past Summer I had the pleasure of photographing the couple’s fairytale destination wedding at the Chanler Hotel in Newport Rhode Island, and it was truly an incredible weekend.
A few months before the destination wedding we made the couple’s New York City engagement photography session and that was really a fun afternoon! Melissa had an image in her mind, a picture of a kiss in front of the Manhattan Brooklyn Bridge, so we started off in DUMBO, made some shots with the bridge, then headed up to Central Park for the rest of the engagement session. I hadn’t met David before the shoot, but he won me over in 5 minutes flat. Watching the way he looks at Melissa, listening to how he talks to her, and the way she looks at him…they have the magic…and I couldn’t be happier for them. Soulmate found…check that one off the list!
Here are a few of my selects from the session…enjoy!
