Ah, New York City. One of my favorite places for day trips. I was thrilled when, while planning their visit from Las Vegas, Christine said she and Christian wanted to have their engagement photos taken in NYC. They’ve lived in Vegas practically their whole lives, so they wanted a change of scenery. New York definitely delivered (and gave us a free gift of thundershowers along the way), and we had a blast capturing their love.
They specifically requested this first set because that’s what they do at home: hang out in bed. Sort of how Chris and I sprawl out next to each other and play Words with Friends. hehe :)
I don’t normally do black & white photos, but I was playing around with this one and loved how it turned out!
We left our hotel and headed over to Central Park. I never noticed how green it is on the east coast until Christine pointed it out. “Nothing survives in the desert!”
We walked around some more, and all of a sudden, these huge raindrops start falling from the sky. I looked around to see everyone out picnicking make a mad dash for cover. We managed to get under a giant tree (thank you, nature’s umbrella) to wait it out. Our next stop was right around the corner, the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
We ended the shoot at the iconic Rockefeller Plaza.
Christine and Christian, I love you guys!
