CARL SCHULTZ PARK, NYC
I had never been to Carl Schultz Park in NYC, but it's awesome. It was a perfect day for shooting and Jeff + Sam made it easy, what a fun couple! We can't wait to shoot their wedding next year at The Blithewold Mansion!
Usually the first thing that couples say to me at an engagement shoot (and it never fails) is, and I'm paraphrasing... "we are awkward!" followed by some nervous laughter -haha, but I always tell them the same thing, "thats fine." I can be quite awkward my self, we all can be, but an engagement session is all about being yourselves and having fun. I tell the couple to forget I'm there, and send out small directions like "just be together, talk to each other, make her laugh, ok now look here!" and it usually works.
Hope you enjoy these photos as much as I do!
