Jessica and Kevin’s Gramercy Park Engagement Session {New York City}

There are a few key ingredients to a fantastic engagement photo shoot; the clothes, the time of year and the time of day.  But in our opinion, location is the number one ingredient when planning a successful New York City engagement photo shoot.  There are so many amazing locations to choose from in Manhattan.  So, when we work with our couples to plan out the day, we always suggest they pick a spot that has meaning.  Not only does a familiar location keep our couple at ease, but it allows their true authentic self to come through.  This surely was the case for when we met up with Jessica and Kevin a few weekends ago!

Jessica and Kevin live in the Gramercy Park section of Manhattan.  The parks local to their home, Rutherford Square and Union Square, are spots they frequent often when they take their dogs out for a long stroll after work or for a leisurely weekend walk.  When they suggested a session that included their pups, we knew one of the parks would be a perfect spot!  In addition, they mentioned that they love Pete’s Tavern, which is near their apartment – so a quick stop for a beer there was in the plan as well!  We ended the day at their amazing rooftop for a late afternoon view of the city.  It was such a fun afternoon and we cannot wait to work with them again in 2017!  Stay tuned!
