Christina and Chris’ Manhattan Engagement Session

I love heading to an engagement and getting a voicemail from the future bride that says “Happy Engagement Day! We are so excited!” I mean seriously, what is not to love? We met them in Central Park and then did a whirlwind tour of the city, visiting their old apartment, a rooftop deck, and the where they first met. I really enjoyed how personal she made the locations. Each spot, including the Bethesda Fountain, were all meaningful to them. Well done Christina, well done.

Dan and I were looking forward to this session so much and it completely lived up to our hopes. After the shoot, we had cocktails and bar food from heaven (think the best mac and cheese you have ever had and then double that awesomeness). It was a perfect closing to the evening. Thank you both for everything. You hosted us well in your beloved city.

    New York was a perfect place for your engagement photos to be taken; your beginning! You both look beautiful – so happy – and the love that you have for each other just pops from each and every photo. Can’t wait for the “big day” just 364 more days:)
