This shoot was a huge reminder that engagement sessions don't have to be awkward and stuffy. They can be playful, untraditional, and loads of FUN!
Emily and Chris are awesome, eclectic, hilarious humans who were more than down to take every weird suggestion, run with it, and make it their own. We shot on a Monday in June with highs in the 90s and humidity that felt like an outdoor sauna. We started in air conditioning at the Strand Bookstore, where they first met through a meet up. We wrapped with an unplanned dip in the fountain at Washington Square Park and it was glorious! However, I did not envy them when I watched as they put dry socks on their soaking wet feet. For the record, this was my third couple who had been on board to go swimming in a public fountain, and it's always the MOST fun.
My goal is to always capture stories that represent each couple and and their unique, multilayered personalities. I hope these photographs will put a smile on their face when they look back on them many years from now.
Cannot wait for this wedding in March 2019!
