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!
