An Unforgettable Engagement Session with Kevin and Rachel at Central Park, New York

November 12th, 2023

As a wedding photographer, I've always been a staunch advocate for pre-wedding, or engagement photoshoots. This is not just a casual suggestion, but something I passionately encourage all my couples to consider. Why, you ask? Well, it's simple. I believe that an engagement session is an incredibly valuable opportunity for us to get to know each other better. It allows us to build a rapport, to understand each other's styles and preferences, and most importantly, it helps to eliminate any potential awkwardness on the actual wedding day.


One such memorable engagement session I had the pleasure of conducting was with the lovely Kevin and Rachel. Our rendezvous point was the iconic Central Park, a location as timeless as their love story. The sun was just starting to paint the sky with hues of gold and lavender when they arrived, both looking radiant and excited for the day ahead.


We began our journey at Bethesda Fountain, an exquisite backdrop for any romantic tale. As expected, we had the place to ourselves. There was something magical about that moment, the fountain standing majestic, while Kevin and Rachel's laughter echoed around the empty park, creating a symphony of perfect harmony.


As we moved on from the fountain, we were greeted by the Bow Bridge. This bridge, framed by the fall foliage in all its resplendent glory, was nothing short of a masterpiece painted by nature herself. The golden leaves contrasted beautifully with the early morning sky, creating a picturesque setting that was just right for some candid shots.


We spent a good amount of time at the bridge, soaking in its beauty and capturing some beautiful moments. But before we knew it, it was time to head back to Bethesda Fountain. The park was gradually waking up, and the light was changing, casting a different hue on everything around us. This change in light offered us a unique opportunity to capture a different perspective of the fountain, and we were more than ready to seize it.

In conclusion, the engagement session with Kevin and Rachel was nothing short of a delightful experience. Not only did we manage to capture some stunning photographs, but we also got to know each other better, setting the stage for a successful and comfortable wedding shoot. So, here's a toast to love, laughter, and a beautiful journey together! Can't wait for their wedding next year at Renault Winery!!
