Stephen and Bianca at the Cloisters | NYC Engagement Photographer

Get ready for a warm and spicy autumn treat! Ironic because this session was shot in 40 degree weather for which Bianca bravely donned an adorable Urban Outfitters dress bare-legged (props girl!).  Nevertheless, this session is reminiscent of a steamy cup of mulled apple cider… spiked with a little rum.   The last 6 months while Bianca was in Oregon performing in the cast of Oklahoma, Stephen remained in NYC studying for his Masters at Columbia University.  Finally the show ended and the two are reunited, and their love for each other seems to have grown all the stronger in their time apart.  Now these two are able to get a jump on planning their wedding taking place upstate in May of 2012.   Bianca wanted a fall themed engagement shoot in a unique location.   When she suggested New York’s Medieval art and architecture museum called “The Cloisters,” I was elated.  This museum, constructed from ruins of castles and cathedrals in Europe (each stone transported to the US and reconstructed) is one of my favorite places in the city and is perfectly placed right next to a long beautiful park on the Hudson.  Though most of the leaves fell the weekend before this was taken,  we were able to find some areas that still had the rich fall colors.  With the beautiful autumn sunset light and a couple so passionately in love, I felt that I had stumbled into a autumn fairytale dream.  Can’t wait to shoot their wedding in May!

Pretty Setting and Pretty People!!! It was fun to finally see Steve’s face full on in the last picture. He is so poised, relaxed and natural in all the various poses, which made me want to know what he looks like. The way Bianca is looking at him is priceless too.
Bianca looks like a model and is also beautifully natural for pictures. It looks like they were really enjoying each other and spending time together and the camera was secondary. Great job, Caroline.
The first, large photo takes the prize for an autumn shoot, I think, but wow, there’s so many good ones!

Yay! I couldnt be more obsessed with these photos. They’re so awesome. I particularly love all of the rays of light that were captured in some of the shots. It seems like the sun was shining just for us (even though I couldn’t feel it. I was freezing that day). Stephen and I showed all of our friends the E.session and couldn’t stop looking at the pics for weeks. Everyday we’d have a new favorite. Thank You Caroline. We’re so excited that you’re our photographer!!
