On a chilly day in January, I photographed an engagement shoot in Central Park for my old friend Nella and her fiancé, Antonio. I’ve known Nella since we were 20 years old and working together at the Mall. We reconnected a few years ago when she started cutting and dying my hair. I was ecstatic when she told me that her sweet boyfriend had proposed, and was even more excited to capture their love and joy in an their engagement session!
Nella, a talented hair and makeup stylist, arrived looking picture perfect. Her hair, makeup and nails were flawless and I swooned at all the pops of red she worked into her look. Her lips, nails, and shoes were the perfect contrast to the chilly winter day.
We closed out our session on Park Avenue. We found a few trees that were still covered in Christmas lights and we shot away! I love this beautiful bokeh – I will certainly look for more items to shoot through for the rest of this year!
This is the photo they chose for their Save the Dates! Don’t you love it?
I really enjoyed shooting Nella and Antonio’s engagement session! I’m looking forward to shooting many more of their future life events! These two love birds will be married on January 16, 2016 in the Dominican Republic, and if their engagement photos are any indication, it’s going to be a gorgeous day. <3
