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!

Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Old City | Sarah + Ryan
These two beautiful people graced me for an evening of tromping all overt Old City the other day.  They’re new in town, having moved from Florida in May. Ryan’s only request was water so we met at Race Street Pier to begin the pictures.  They were naturals from the first second. The two met at a country bar in Orlando two years ago.  Ryan walked in looking preppy as can be with rolled red pants, a linen shirt, and boat shoes.  Sarah just had to send a picture of this guy to her friends via Snapchat.  He caught her doing it and the rest is history! They were at DisneyWorld in January.  He managed a romantic private night ...

Sarah + Kevin: Engagement Session in West Chester
She was in New York for a friend’s birthday. She arrived at the spot early as the band was setting up. He was in the band. They chatted and hit it off. That was four years ago and I'll be photographing their wedding this June.Sarah, Kevin, and I met up the other week in West Chester for their chilly but sun-kissed engagement session. In the process I learned about Kevin’s vast knowledge of every food establishment in the city (he recommends Buddy’s burgers, Iron Hill, and Culinary’s, by the way), their pooch, Hazel, who was this close to being a part of the shoot, and the romantic way Kevin visited Sarah in New York one Christmas Eve, to ...
