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!
