Peter and Dee’s Brooklyn Botanic Garden Engagement | New York Wedding Photographer

Been looking forward to this couple’s engagement session since October, but we postponed it to wait for the spring blossoms, and were we rewarded for our wait!   The Brooklyn Botanic Garden, bathed in the glow of the warm afternoon light,  never looked better with its cherry blossoms blooming,  willow tree branches bristling and blankets of purple flowers covering the ground.   What a quintessential place to celebrate the new love of this sweet Brooklyn couple who will be getting married in May.  Afterwards we captured these city-dweller’s more urban side,  spending a little time at the Manhattan Bridge in Brooklyn as well. We had to call it a night for the sake of Dee’s fingers and toes.  It’s not summer yet, people!  Though these photos would almost fool you.  Can’t wait for this lovey duo’s May wedding!

 

Kacey and Brendan’s Autumn in Central Park | NYC Engagement Photographer

Autumn in New York..most agree its the best time to be here.  Apple cider and pumpkins.  Not too hot, not too cold.  Colorful foliage galore, and a general fresh sense of the old is passed and the new is coming.  This is especially true for Kacey who is an English teacher.   But what is more for Kacey and Brendan, who works in Finance,  they are about to embark on their new adventure as a married couple in July, and I couldn’t be more thrilled for them.   I barely have to tell you how genuine their love for one another is because these images say it all… I hope you enjoy this little walk in Central Park with them and that you are inspired by the love that they share.

The Princess Kate resemblance is really strong in these next three images:

 

It was really hard to choose whether to show these in color or black and white….they were so gorgeous in both..

This image below was a close second for my favorite…So passionate and romantic and yet completely free and natural.  Scroll below to see “the winner.”

It was super hard to choose, but I think these one below is my favorites of the day…their passionate love is just so tangible.  I got a little misty eyed during this part of the shoot at how FREAKIN gorgeous and in love these two are.  Luckily this was the last frame!

Thanks for viewing. More to come soon!  Please “like” and comment below! Also check out their slideshow.

 

Dan and Liliana at High Line Park | NYC Engagement Photographer

So excited to share Liliana and Dan’s playful engagement session with you!!  Remember my engagement photo contest last fall? These are my winners! Besides being a fun couple to work with, Liliana and Dan were so great to photograph because their love for each other was continuously bubbling over throughout the shoot.  They just couldn’t hide it!  You know what I say to that?  “AWESOME!”  Makes my job easy.

The High Line was a beautiful location to work at and really gave a mixture of the urban NYC feel and a soft natural beauty that highlighted their relationship that developed in the city.  But photographers beware, we got yelled at and threatened several times by High Line staff for venturing off the path and into the greenery,  but luckily in this long skinny park it’s unlikely you’ll see the same staff person twice.   We then moved down to the West Village for some playful shots of this football loving couple.  How cool does Liliana look playing football in heels?

It rained all day before the shoot, and we were worried that we’d have to cancel, but in a true love story fashion, the clouds parted just long enough for the hour and a half session and resumed raining as soon as we finished.   We still had to play with the umbrella for some of the shots though!  Special thanks to my hubby Alex who came a long for the shoot in case I needed an umbrella holder (isn’t he amazing, ladies?) but he ended up just holding all of our bags…what a guy!

Adam and Jenn | NYC Engagement Photographer

These two lovebirds, Adam and Jenn,  met at NYU Med School and somehow managed to build a relationship despite their rigorous studying schedules.  Now Jenn is an anesthesiologist and Adam is on his way to a PhD in addition to his MD.  They wanted engagement photos that conveyed their love in Midtown Manhattan where they spend a lot of time and where Adam proposed.

They found me on Yelp and we had our first meeting in Starbucks.  As we talked about how they met and their interests,  I discovered their love for reading, so I suggested that we tie in a theme of words to their engagement shoot.  It seemed more than fitting for these two brainiacs!  To my delight, they were super into the idea and even agreed to buy chalkboards, and letter blocks, and made a DIY banner with their wedding date!  And how fitting that the famous Love sculpture is located right in that same Midtown neighborhood!?

Come Sunday, I set off to capture the essence of what it must have been like to be two busy med students in love.  After  gallivanting around Midtown, we took a cab up to riverside park on the Upper West Side for some gorgeous sunset shots.   We even put together a romantic sunset study session.  (Yes we rolled all of those heavy text books around in a suitcase…and by “we” I mean Adam…thanks Adam!) Now, check out these photo please tell me how much you LOVE this couple.

 

I used Kubota Photoshop Actions to add a subtle “umph” to some of the photos and I am totally hooked.  They really allowed me to effortlessly take my images to the next level of quality, while still retaining the warm, colorful, unprocessed look that I favor…
