I finished off my Sunday (last weekend) in Central Park with Jaime and Jessica. It gave me a little inspiration for my OWN engagement shoot which will also take place (or at least a part of it) in the park. I love all of the different looks you can get in the park. There is wonderful architecture to choose from in addition to the most "green" you can see anywhere in NYC. Jessica came prepared with some signs she had made to use in the photos for their sign-in book at their wedding. I think these turned out beautifully and the sun was at just the right place in the sky for some warm orange light.
Looking forward to seeing you guys in December!
Kim and Aaron came all the way from Pittsburgh for their engagement session so when the forecast showed rain showers ALL weekend I knew we'd have to be creative since rescheduling wasn't really an option. We started under a covered bridge and then headed into Bethlehem which actually lent us many indoor locations which we had fun with. It was Kim's idea to go into the Moravian Bookshop and I'm so glad we did, we found so many props to use and thankfully got a lot of pictures before we found out they didn't allow photographs....oops.
They had thought about their hobbies and how they might incorporate them into the shoot but decided that what they did best was eat and drink. Living in New York City and being totally able to relate to this, I thought it would be fun to get lunch at the Brew Works and take some pictures. I love Kim's face in the first shot.
Aaron and Kim, I had so much fun on Saturday. Thanks for being totally willing and in good spirits despite the weather!!
Here are a few more images from Alison and Aaron's engagement session in Stony Brook, New York. I told them their town reminded me of reading the Babysitter's Club books when I was younger. Everything about it was just perfect and every place they took me was fantastic for photos. Their wedding is right around the corner and I know it will be equally as beautiful (because I saw all of the wedding venues while I was out there!). See you guys soon!
For Alison and Aaron until I get to the full post... I had so much fun today, thanks for sharing Stony Brook with me and making my job so easy!!
I met Rebeca and David this past Saturday at the Brooklyn Bridge. It was my first weekend in a while without a wedding so we were lucky to fit this shoot in on a summer Saturday! We started off on the bridge and then walked into Brooklyn Heights. I hadn't been there before and it turned out to be a beautiful neighborhood with some great shooting spots. Rebeca and David had their first "proper" date in Brooklyn Heights so it made sense to shoot there. There wedding is right around the corner in October so you'll see more of them soon!
We thought we were done shooting and then we stumbled upon Love Lane.
