I have a little problem and I’m soon to seek clinical help. I can’t seem to come across cherry blossoms or any other flowering tree this spring without wanting to photograph it for hours on end. Cherry blossoms, magnolias and dogwood trees have sprung to life all over New York City and after a long, dreary winter I imagine they are to a wedding photographer what water is for a thirsty desert traveler. The problem with these beautiful blossoms is they don’t often last more than a week, and that’s only if the rain and wind are kind. On a run through Central Park, I saw these gorgeous trees and with no engagement photos booked in the park that week I called my dear friends Mark and Mara who are getting married this September, to see if they wanted an engagement photo session amongst Central Park’s cherry blossoms. I brought my Contax and photographed the lovely couple in all film. God smiled on us and gave us the warmest, buttery, sunset sunlight that I’ve ever seen on this coast. I’m in love with every image from this shoot and can’t wait to photograph Mark and Mara’s New York wedding at Tralee Farm!
