We spent all winter planning and strategizing. The perfect winter engagement shoot was the goal, complete with fuzzy mittens and fat snowflakes. And a French Bakery. With lots and lots of tasty treats. But every time a storm rolled around (and Lord knows there were plenty of them!), something stopped us from the shoot. He was out of town. She wasn’t available. I was out of town. The cards never stacked up properly so as February rounded into March we decided, instead, to rethink Jenn and Dan’s engagement shoot. She suggested going into NYC and doing the shoot at Central Park, because she and Dan love going there. So we set a date and made it happen. Little did we know that this would end up being the perfect backdrop, the perfect weather, and perfect representation of the sweet, beautiful, warm love that they share. When we arrived to Bow Bridge and Bethesda Fountain in Central Park, I was delighted to see that the cherry blossoms were in full bloom. Between their outfits and the subtle hints of pink from the trees, the colors of the session perfectly match their wedding.
Jenn and Dan, it was SO GREAT hanging out with you over fancy sods and ricotta crostinis. Can’t wait for your wedding next week!
As we rounded the corner near Bow Bridge in Central Park, my first site was these gorgeous cherry blossoms and I knew we had to start the shoot there.
Some people are totally awkward in front of the camera. And there’s these two. Who, within seconds, were super relaxed and natural in front of the camera
Love this shot that Rachel grabbed!
Love, love, love cherry blossoms!!
After spending some time with the cherry blossoms, we made our way over to the iconic Bow bridge to continue their engagement photos
I’ve always loved the light inside the tunnels located near Bethesda Fountain in Central Park
Jenn, you are STUNNING!
The stairs by Bethesda Fountain are always a cool place to take engagement photos because of the symmetry.
The light in Central park was just perfect for an engagement session this past Sunday!
