Oh, friends, do we have something special to share with you today! Our first engagement session in Central Park! A few months ago, we made plans to visit our friends in New Haven, Connecticut. Around the same time, we Skyped with an amazing bride and groom who live in New York City but are getting married in Phoenix, and as soon as we realized that New Haven is only about a two-hour train ride to The Big Apple, we added one more stop to our northeast adventure!
We left New Haven in the morning and arrived at Grand Central Station just before noon. In less than two hours, we walked about 50 blocks and saw as many sights as we could – Rockefeller Center, NBC Studios, Radio City Music Hall, Times Square – ending up smack-dab in the middle of Central Park, where we met the sweetest, most adorable couple: Haley and Tom. We spent the next few hours exploring the nooks and crannies of America’s favorite park, the bridges and benches, the tunnels and staircases, and the fall foliage that hung on just long enough for our cameras to make its acquaintance. Despite the freezing cold temperatures, occasional gusts of cutting wind, and parts of the park that were packed with people, these two couldn’t have been better sports, the session couldn’t have gone any better, and we couldn’t have had more fun.
Since this session has two distinct NYC flavors – the first half is cozy and colorful, and the second half is city and chic – we’re breaking it up and sharing it in two separate parts this week, starting with cozy and colorful half today, and city and chic half tomorrow. Haley and Tom, thank you for showing us your beautiful neighborhood and trusting us with documenting this big city chapter of your life together. We love you both and can’t wait for your wedding next fall! Here are some of the highlights from the first half of our time together.
