Wedding Photography celebrating the Independence of the Adventurous, Cosmopolitan Bride serving New York, Connecticut and the Hamptons - based in Rye, NY
They rode the same bus to junior high, lived down the street from each other growing up… they even graduated in the same class at an out of state college together… yet it wasn’t until after Brad moved to New York City that he and Katie were set up by a mutual friend during one of his trips home to Arizona for Thanksgiving. After a whirlwind 4-day courtship during his trip home, the pair resorted to Skype dates in order to continue their cross-country romance. Dozens of flights back and forth and many exhausting red-eyes later, Brad proposed to Katie at the Brooklyn Bridge this spring.
This week I got back together with this madly in love pair to photograph their official engagement photos at sunrise in Central Park. The more times I get up early for sunrise sessions, the more I love them! It’s so spectacular to have the usually crowded city landmarks all to yourself! I can’t get enough of these two!! You guys are adorable… enjoy my favorites images from our session in the park and at Top of the Rock!
Dancing in the park… I love these shots!
Obsessed with this one!
We changed outfits at Brad’s Upper West Side brownstone apartment. I love the regal look against the classic city brownstones!
No New York City session would be complete without a taxi-cab photo! We hopped in this cab outside the Plaza Hotel on Central Park South and were first in line at Top of the Rock to finish the session on top of the city skyline!
We were literally the first people to arrive on the top deck for the day… the sun rising over the Empire State Building and the light reflecting off the Freedom Tower in the distance… I love these!
Top of the Rock isn’t the tallest viewing deck in New York City, but the one thing it has over the Empire State Building platforms is the view north to Central Park that is impossible to beat!
Congrats you guys! I cannot wait to photograph your wedding in July!!
