New York City, The High Line, Engagement Session

I was super excited to photograph Brendan & Megan’s engagement session at New York City’s iconic High Line Park! I had the privilege of capturing their secret proposal last Labor Day weekend (which you can see HERE) and I was simply bubbling over with joy in anticipation of documenting their wedding day this August!

I highly recommend planning engagement photo sessions very early in the morning to avoid the heavy crowds. But, if you decide on an evening session, we can still use a few tricks to find good, unsaturated spots :).

In this case, Megan & Brendan chose a session near dawn, being the early birds that they are. We photographed our early morning engagement session on the High Line, starting on the cobblestone streets just below it. We loved exploring the different sections with their variety of trees and plant life, benches, and sitting areas that overlook the city streets.

We ended our session at the northern part of the High Line, at Hudson yards. It was so cool to see the new honeycomb spiral staircase landmark standing as the centerpiece of the area.

This couple is so fun to be around, always smiling and giggling, and up for anything fun and adventurous! I had so much fun laughing and joking with them. I simply adored the tender moments that they shared and allowed me to capture through my lens.

I love it when couples can just enjoy the quiet moments with each other!

NYC Highline Engagement Session

It was a chilly October morning when Alyson and Jordan arrived for their engagement session.  They were real troopers for getting up so early to beat the crowds on the Highline and catch those morning rays of sunshine.  The Highline is a special place where they both love to come and spend time together.  I was fortunate enough to share this experience with them while there were so few people.  Alyson was a brave soul, walking around effortlessly in her heels and taking off her cute sweater when the sun was just warm enough as it hit her shoulders.  Jordan was such a gentleman and made sure that Alyson was comfortable, kept her warm and of course, kept her smiling.  They have a deep love and respect for each other.  Alyson and Jordan are such a sweet couple, they even looked out for me!  Afterwards, I loved sitting with them over hot chocolates and tea and hearing all about their wedding planning and the little details that are going into their big day!  I’m very happy for them as they continue to check things off the list ;)  And, I’m excited to share a few images from their sweet session and can’t wait for Alyson and Jordan’s Princeton wedding next year!
