There were so many wonderful things about this session that I could go on forever about! One was that Carly and Robert chose to share their beautiful city with us instead of meeting up for their session on the west coast. They moved to New York together for school and work a few years ago. It was their first big adventure as an “US” and now the city has so many deeply personal memories. They are both runners and have run through Central Park countless times together. Robert proposed on a row boat near one of the spots we stopped for some pictures (bridge overlooking the water). And we walked the streets and shops that they frequent together. Carly is almost done with grad school at Columbia University and in the next few months they’ll be relocating to Boston where Robert works, so this shoot was not only their engagement portraits, but a capture of a very important, and quickly fleeting moment of their lives. I was so honored to head out East and photograph this moment for them, and I can’t wait for their west coast wedding next fall. These two are keepers – such generous and loving people; effortlessly able to crack stupid jokes and laugh like crazy, and then sit and have an eloquent political/economical conversation over wine and cheese a little later. They are so great together, and I’m elated to be a small part of their beautiful lives. I hope their sweetness brightens your day today!
Casey and I got back last night from New York City, where we flew out to shoot Carly and Robert’s engagement session in Central Park. Man oh man, 2 jam packed days of walking Manhattan in perfect autumn weather… I had a love affair with the city. Carly and Robert were amazing to shoot and I can’t wait to share the full session.
For a sneak peak… They are transplants in the city from the west coast and wanted their engagements to always remind them of their time there. So I tried to give them a few iconic New York shots like a kiss on the Mall in Central Park – mmmm I want to go back!
