I am so excited to share some tidbits about my recent engagement session with Melissa and James! This couple was so warm and welcoming to me…which meant a lot, especially since it was my first time shooting in New York City! What a fantastic adventure with a wonderful couple!
We decided to try and get some time in Central Park before it was too crowded, so our day began at 6:45am! It was definitely worth the early rising, the Park was calm and lovely. And ohhh, the light! It was exquisite! I love shooting in the morning when the day is fresh and full of possibilities…it feels so right for an engagement session! Melissa and James showed me all their favorite spots in the Park and even gave me a tour of their famous neighborhood, Greenwich Village. They also invited me into their apartment, which is absolutely charming…brick walls, French doors and impeccable décor. These two were so generous, taking me around town and inviting me into their world! We ended the session with brunch at a restaurant that was new to Melissa and James. So much fun! These two love trying out new restaurants, and the one they took me to was amazing!
I have to say, though, that while everything Melissa and James showed me was wonderful, the real treat was getting to spend time in their company. As a couple they have true, deep chemistry…they’ve been together for 6 years. They laugh a lot and they’re clearly in sync. When you spend time with people like that, you can’t help but feel joyous yourself! It’s a huge gift!
Melissa and James, thank you so much for sharing your current city and your lives with me, for taking me out to brunch and for the lovely conversation. I hope you all enjoy this selection of photos from our time together in the Big Apple!
