Getting engaged is often a moment that remains on the highlight reel indefinitely. This is a moment that should be commemorated in the best way possible. Lucky for me, many couples choose to immortalize this event by doing a photoshoot. Being an engagement photographer in NYC allows me to shoot in some of the most romantic locations in the country. For instance, Central Park has long since been one of my top 10 venues to capture these incredible moments. With that in mind, here is a closer look at a Central Park engagement shoot with Akeita and Andrew.
Fun Facts about the Couple
Let me just start by saying, an impromptu engagement photoshoot in which the bride is totally unaware that her boyfriend is about to propose is like a dream come true. This is exactly what happened with Akeita and Andrew. He tricked her into showing up by telling her they’d be helping a friend with their photoshoot.
However, he eventually admitted that there was no photoshoot and he actually invited her there because they used to meet there for nightly jogs; it was essentially the very place they started to fall in love! With my camera pointed right at her, Akeita cried and accepted the proposal. This was definitely one of the sweetest engagements I had seen in a while and I was so happy to be the man behind the camera capturing it all.
Central Park as an Engagement Photo Shoot Venue
I love shooting at Central Park because it’s filled with vibrant green meadows, whimsical gardens, unique bridges, etc. Central Park is the type of place where you can easily shoot all day and never get bored. If you’re engaged and searching for engagement photographers in Brooklyn, make sure you hire someone who embraces the beauty of your chosen venue and captures your moment in such a way that puts the depth of your love on full display.
