Central Park Row Boat Engagement Session | New York Wedding Photographer
Does anything say romance like a rowboat for two on the Central Park pond captured on film? With the weeping willows grazing the water, the architectural eye candy of Bethesda Terrace and Bow Bridge, and the stunning skyline peeking up over the trees, I think not. My husband, Alex actually proposed to me on this very same pond in one of these rowboats and I’ve always wanted to photograph an engagement session here. This gentleman, also named Alex, and his fiancee Christina hold a different kind of special meaning in a romantic boat ride. In fact, they met on a ship while serving as officers in the Navy. Indeed, Alex could steer this little dingy with expertise no matter what ludicrous directions I was shouting from shore. “A LITTLE CLOSER” , “A LITTLE BACK” “SPIN IT AROUND” “TURN TO THE RIGHT, NO THE OTHER RIGHT.” “You mean Starboard?” Oops I forgot who I was dealing with. :) But they did an excellent job humoring me, and these images of these two sweethearts on my favorite pond make my heart so happy. And again, film takes my breath away. Can’t wait to photograph their cozy wedding this January!
