New York Engagement Photographer | Prospect Park | Vanessa + Kenny

Engagement

Vanessa and Kenny’s relationship goes waaaay back, like high school back.  And then it stops.  And then it starts again.  But before I get into that, let me set the scene: we got our schedules in sync to photograph their engagement session right around the corner from their home in Brooklyn not long before their wedding.  There were ideas swirling around about where we should go and what we should do but we decided to keep it simple and wander around Prospect Park.

These two are fantastic together.  If there were any jitters of being in front of the camera, my lens certainly didn’t see them.  They felt like old friends who invited me for a night out to play.

They were high school sweethearts and parted ways after a few years as usually happens.  But they remained friends because their friend group was so close.  They dated other people, experienced the world independently, and eventually fell back into one another’s lives romantically.  As they put it, they’re “really glad the relationship happened as it did.  We have a shared history but developed individual thoughts and identities that still worked out together later.”

Kenny says he always knew she was the one he would marry.

It was while Vanessa was in Connecticut for work, sitting in her pjs and eating a sandwich in her hotel room bed, that Kenny called to tell her that he missed her.  And that he was at her hotel.  He had brought the letters she had written him when they were teenagers.  And a ring.

They are a fabulous pair together and had a ridiculously off-the-wall wedding that you’ll see very soon!

Ailene + Jason’s e-session
I couldn't have asked for better light for Ailene and Jason's e-session. It was breathtaking. It was magical. It was golden. It was Perfect. (That's right, capital P.)We met on a warm summer evening at Valley Forge National Park in King of Prussia for some engagement pictures that are sure to thrill. Valley Forge Park was meaningful to them because they often ride their motorcycle all around the park together.Ailene is this sweet little thing – full of smiles and absolutely bright and beautiful in her white sundress. Jason plays it cool but his face lights up and he just grins when Ailene eggs him on. It's fantastic. They met at a fu ...
