Central Park Engagement Session // Annie & Louis

As an NYC wedding photographer, I always get excited about capturing love stories in the heart of the city. When Annie and Louis chose Central Park for their engagement session, I couldn’t have been happier! Central Park is such a picturesque location, and the vibrant colors of spring added an extra touch of magic to their photos.

We started the session with Annie wearing a stunning long white dress. The flowing fabric and delicate lace details perfectly complemented the romantic atmosphere of the park. As the sunlight filtered through the trees, it created a soft, dreamy glow around them, highlighting their love and connection.

Transitioning to a different look, Annie changed into a vibrant pink fitted dress that made her radiate with joy and confidence. The bold color popped against the lush greenery of Central Park, creating a striking contrast. Louis also looked dapper, effortlessly complementing Annie’s stylish choices.

Walking hand in hand, Annie and Louis explored the park’s hidden corners and iconic landmarks. We captured their laughter as they playfully explored Central Park. The vibrant spring blossoms served as the perfect backdrop and I’m so excited to share these images with you! One of my favorite areas in Central Park is the Bow Bridge. The Bow Bridge offers breathtaking views of the surrounding lake and city skyline.

Bethesda Terrace and Fountain:

We ventured near the Bethesda Terrace and Fountain, where the grand architecture and ornate details created a timeless setting. Central Park truly showcased its versatility, providing a variety of backdrops that added depth and interest to their engagement session.
