Mary & Josh’s Central Park Engagements

How can I describe the amazingness that was the opportunity of this photo shoot?

Since visiting New York for the first time over three years ago with my sister, Mary, I have been head over heels in love with it.  Particularly with a certain beautiful, (relatively) peaceful haven smack dab in the middle of bustling Manhattan.

I had the extreme honor of taking my very own sister’s engagement portraits in Central Park this summer.  Central.  Flippin’.  Park.  Doing a photoshoot there has been a dream of mine since my first wondrous stroll through it and what better way to make that happen than with my sister and her awesome fiance?

We decided to go early in the morning to catch the pretty light before the park would be flooded with tourists.  It worked out beautifully.

Behold, Mary and Josh:

One of my favorites.

Mary happened upon this great be-vined (is that a word?  It is now) area behind the bandshell.  We definitely had to take advantage!

They are so happy together.  It makes me so happy, too:)

Love this series, taken at Bethesda Terrace.

Mary and Josh frequent Alice’s Tea Cup in the city, so I found it only appropriate to include ol’ Alice in their session 😉

I saved my absolute favorite for last!

Congratulations, Mary and Josh, and I am SO excited to watch you embark on the adventure that awaits you!
