Who doesn't know Time Square in NYC and when you're planning your Destination Wedding in Punta Cana, you might want a contrast of photos to get a more urban city-life feel to your engagement photos! I truly enjoyed capturing Giselle and Kelvin's engagement photos and couldn't wait to share these teasers. We first started the day at Central Park by Bethesda Terrace and by Bethesda Fountain to get that classic NYC feel that Central Park offers. Even with hundreds of people milling about, it just seemed like Giselle and Kelvin were alone in all of Central Park! The way they held each other, and how they interacted with one another definitely felt natural and full of love that whenever they decide to hug or kiss, you can feel the magic in the photographs. After playing with bubbles and me showing these two New Jersey folks around, we headed to Columbus Avenue to ride on the 1 train downtown to Time Square. A few quick photos and we started their Time Square New York engagement photography after a quick change in good ol' Starbucks. By the way, Giselle's makeup artist, Denise Tavarez from Kouture Makeup Designs in Northern NJ & NYC, did an amazing job on her makeup. It was still a hot muggy day during their engagement session and her makeup held up perfectly for their three hour photography session!! After ordering a cool drink, we were off to shoot around Time Square and again, even with the millions of people in this section of Manhattan, it felt like there was no one else but us enjoying the most lit up part of New York City. I love my job and I love meeting and getting to know people. To have met Giselle and Kelvin was an honor and such a breath of fresh air. I am so happy for them and me and my team at Angelica Criscuolo Photography wish you two an amazing future!
