Frost Photography Mini Engagement Sessions

Recently, I did an online coupon deal for one hour engagement sessions in Manhattan.  The response was great, and as a result I’ve had the privilege of meeting a lot of super sweet couples of every flavor and stage of life!  Still have a few more to come, but here are four of these couples I got to meet and photograph this month:

Matt and Vivi at Central Park

Matt, Vivi, and I had such a fun couple of hours today, which was a bright, brisk day in Central Park.  These two were such great models, and weren’t afraid to have a good time!  We started in Shakespeare’s Garden where Matt proposed and after exploring the park a bit,  went back to their upper east side for their fur babies, Nena and Frank.   You can really tell a lot about a person based on how they treat animals and these two just love their two rescue dogs, despite their sometimes cumbersome quirks.  We all grabbed brunch afterwards as today also happens to be Matt’s birthday, and I got to hear all about their beautiful, unique June 2013 taking place and a rustic barn in upstate New York.   Thanks for such a fun day, Matt and Vivi!!!    And “Happy Birthday” Matt! This super early, day-of preview of your photos is my present to you. ;-)

Sammy + Katy at the Meatpacking District

Sammy and Katy have such great chemistry and a unique love story.  They met last October and knew right away they had found “the one.”  They have the sort of ease of manner with each other that you feel with couples who have been together for years and both are such joyful people, it’s contagious… I wish them so much happiness for their wedding taking place in Seattle this August!

As soon as we met, Katy said she felt like she already knew me from following my blog and with her easy manner and friendly spirit (must be the west coast coming out of her),  that I soon felt I knew her as well.   In fact, we connected so well that we are grabbing coffee next week just to hang out… I love when a client becomes a friend!  

Ankur + Diana at Battery Park City

Battery park city is a unique part of downtown that not a lot of people know about and that reminded me a bit of San Fransisco.   Ankur and Diana live in the neighborhood and wanted to capture a day in the life.   Before meeting Diana and Ankur, Diana warned me they were photo-shy.   I wasn’t deterred, as I’m used to working with people who don’t love being front of the camera and enjoy helping people to feel comfortable, but that was not necessary at all with this couple who contrary to their belief, were naturals at modeling!  As I’m sure you can see, these two good-lookings have a special kind of love that just radiates through photos and made my job very easy.   I wish them so much joy for their August 2013 wedding!

Dino + Araceli at Central Park

Right when Dino thought he was never going to find the right one for him,  Araceli walked into his world, or rather into his restaurant, and he never looked back.   Dino is a recently retired firefighter who is enjoying his new relaxing lifestyle, and Araceli works in Fashion industry.   Both are as nice as can be, and Dino truly knows how to make Araceli laugh…and made me laugh as well!   We met early one morning on a warm spring day and took in some of the most beautiful parks of the park.   They are such beautiful people and I wish them so much happiness for their upcoming Florida wedding!

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!
