Swetha and Sachin decided to visit NYC for their two year anniversary and we’re so glad they did! This adorable couple lives in Nova Scotia so I hope our hot summer weather was ok! We met them at the corner of Central Park for a nice late afternoon stroll through some of the most iconic parts of the park before we jumped on the F train out to Brooklyn Bridge Park for sunset. It was great getting to know this couple and we’re ready for the three year anniversary session!
This was Mandy and Jace’s second trip to New York City, but this time around they brought their 19 month old son! Connor was very excited to see the city, and he certainly gave us his A game. We took this lovely family from Texas to Sheep’s Meadow in Central Park, made our way to Bethesda Fountain, and ended our trip on the High Line. This trip was the first time any of them had been on the High Line, and it proved to be a great time for everyone!
What an oh-so-romantic surprise engagement for Giovanni and his now-fiancé Sarah! We started the day by rowing out into the Central Park lake and waiting for the happy couple to row out behind us. After a bit of rowing over to Wagner’s Cove, he popped the question and she said yes! We then took the happily engaged couple on a small walk through the park, and then sent them on their way to the Met. Hopefully we’ll be seeing more from these two in the future! Congrats!
When we got an email from a boy named Loren about his proposal plan to a girl named Lauren we thought we might be being punked. Loren and Lauren?! This was fantastic! After the usual back and forth emails detailing the “plan” with Loren we had our spot. Due east of Belvedere Castle in Central Park. Following (girl) Lauren’s surprise and also surprise by the photographers (including one from China!) we wandered aorund the castle for some portraits. (Boy) Loren played some baseball so we even got out onto the fields for some fun portraits! Best part about this couple is that although they are from San Francisco, Karen is in SF this weekend and gets to meet with them! Door to door service at IHNY!
Ash & Adam ❤️ (at Flatiron District, NYC)
Effie and Winston returned to New York from Shanghai and they asked us to shoot their engagement session! We met this power couple in the Flatiron district, where we managed to get some fantastic photos while all of 23rd and 5th was blocked off for the Pride parade. We like to think the police did it just for us. Afterwards, we went down to the Lower East Side, and got some amazing shots in the middle of Houston Street. We then made our way down to Dumbo via the F train where we hit the walls around the York St station, including the giant Shepard Fairey mural. We ended our session with some breathtaking photos along the waterfront. This was an AWESOME session, and hopefully we’ll see more of these two in the future! I Heart Shanghai anyone?
tonight’s awesome sunset crossing into Manhattan #qtrain #IHNY
Jillian and Josh were on vacation in NYC from Calgary and we met this adorable couple at one of the biggest meeting spots in NYC, the SE corner of Central Park. You know that plaza in front of the Plaza Hotel! After we wandered around the park we hopped on the subway down to Chinatown to one of my favorite hidden streets, Doyers Street, in Chinatown. The history behind this street is pretty thrilling and I highly recommend checking out this podcast about it. Jillian and Josh told me they had seen a little bit of Chinatown but not this part, the real stuff! Once our session was over we asked if we could leave them in that area or they wanted help with directions out, they said no we want to explore! Perfect so we sent them off to Joe’s Shanghai for the best soup dumplings in NYC! I hope you two went… mmmm I’m getting hungry now!
Deb and Jim were once upon a time married in Central Park so it seemed right to go back to that waterfall and take some anniversary photos! This couple lives in Nebraska but travels all over the world and we were so glad we got to capture them while they are in town!
