Central Park Engagement Session | New York Wedding Photographer

I don't even know where to start with these two! Let's just say instant chemistry from the start! No I am not talking about their relationship! I am talking about OUR relationship! From the first few emails I could tell that Lanita was definitely a girl I could roll with, and when I met Raki at the consultation it just sweetened the pot! Nothing better than clients who you would love to call friends! The wedding is one year away and I cannot wait! Yes I love exclamation marks, so please forgive me. I just get really excited when I get to have such wonderful people as clients!

On the day of the engagement shoot we met super early in Central Park because it was going to be a scorcher. By scorcher I mean heat advisory, don't take your dogs outside hot! Lanita and Raki had already scouted out the locations they wanted and it was awesome because I am known to get a bit turned around (just plain lost) in Central Park. We didn't exactly beat the heat but we avoided the worst of it. I think! It was pretty hot.

One of the locations almost got me eaten by a lake monster. I really didn't think there were fish in the water. Do you see how calm the water looks behind them? Well a HUGE fish jumped up and made a Loch Ness Monster sized splash while my back was to the water. It definitely shocked all three of us.


So Raki and I both share a crazy fear of insects. I was glad she could understand me when I went running from the biggest bee I ever saw that seemed to have a crush on me. Really, it just kept coming back for more. Then Lanita, lover of nature, explained to me that Bumble bees don't sting and that is why they are so big and loud. Their size and buzzing keep away predators! Ha! Who knew. See that! How could I not love this girl! By the way Lanita, that info helped me on my trip to Grenada.


With all of the love oozing out of these two they made my job so easy!






The swings were such a great idea and a wonderful way to end such a fun session!






I was able to get this fun shot at brunch. Not sure who told them that food was the way to my heart but it was yummy and totally appreciated!


All love, hugs, and smiles! Thanks for making me a part of such a great time in your lives!
