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…
