Central Park Engagement Session - Mike and Kristen

I met Mike in ninth grade Spanish class and really got to know him over the summer when we both taught tennis at a club in Allentown, where I grew up.  I was so thrilled to learn that he had met a girl as lovely as Kristen and that they wanted me to photograph their wedding.  They live in New York City and wanted to have their engagement session done in Central Park, where they got engaged.  I always love going into New York to shoot, the city provides such an electric backdrop for images and it's easy to see things in a fresh new way because nothing stays the same in New York for very long.  It was a surprisingly cold Fall day but the sun was shining and I think the images convey the bright, fun time we had exploring the park and ending up at the spot where it all began, Conservatory Water.  I hope you enjoy these few favorites!
