NYC Engagement Photographer | Manhattan | Kat + Dan

Engagement

3 years ago, Dan showed up to his first date with Kat with a Barnes & Noble bag and four books.  He had a dimple and bright blue eyes.  Kat, an English major and writer, was done for.

They will be getting married at Aldie Mansion this December but wanted their engagement session in the place they call home – Manhattan.  They traverse the area for comedy shows, restaurants, movies, and so had a million ideas for where their engagement session should take us.

We began in Greenwich Village, taking advantage of cobblestone charm and a beautiful day.

We strolled through Washington Square Park where I learned that Kat and Dan have a pull, a need to pet dogs.  They do not yet have any of their own but they dream of booping the snoop of their own large, happy hound.

Last year around the holidays, Dan took Kat for a late night walk around Lincoln Center to take in the lights and fountains.  He hit her with, “I have an idea.  You’re going to hate it.  I think you should marry me.”  Kat, of course, said yes!

Because there is no good reciprocal accouterments for men, Dan got sneakers.  Dan loves sneakers.

6 months into dating, Dan came back from a trip to Arizona on a red eye and collapsed on Kat’s couch.  He woke up later to a plate of bacon and eggs.  When he relayed this to a friend, it was established that she was a keeper.

We moved along to Tribeca where we got playful at the Roxy Hotel.  We didn’t get into trouble but I’d say we were pretty close to getting the boot when we were leaving.

Kat had scouted some fantastic spots, leading me to a skybridge on Staple Street.

As the sun was setting, we walked along Rockefeller Park to take in the skyline and the breeze off the water.

And the natives.

I had a ball with these two and can’t wait to get up to more mischief in a few months!

What was originally going to be a Trash the Dress session evolved into a fallsy love session a little over a year after Julie and Chuck’s wedding.

After all, we had already done beach, boardwalk, kites, water, and carousels for their engagement session and then the gorgeous Bear Creek Mountain Ski Resort for their wedding. In that vein, if you’re going to do fall, you do it all the way.We met up at Linvilla Orchards in Media, PA for autumn colors, apples, pumpkins, farm animals, and as much trouble as we could find.Julie realllly likes goats.

I had to begin wondering if this engagement session would ever come.  Angela and Robert were coming down from New York and we had rain plan A-F for a myriad of dates.  Finally I saw them on an overcast day in Philly for their whirlwind engagement session around Rittenhouse Square. The two have been together for 13 years, meeting while working together at the Sports Authority in Queens.  He was a “bad boy” who smoked cigarettes and had an Abercrombie jacket.  She was smitten. Robert was two hours late in picking her up for their first date.  He forgot her house number and knocked on every door up and down the street until he ga ...
