It’s the height of wedding season and with New York City wedding engagement photography sessions underway, couples continue to inquire how to prepare for their engagement photo session. As photographers, it’s important I help all my clients feel ready and be prepared for their photo session. An engagement session in Dumbo, The High Line, Central Park, Gantry State Park, Grand Central, Park Avenue, or any location is their trial run before their big day. Ensuring you get the best experience is important. Here are some tips I’ve given to past clients to help them prepare for their photoshoot.
So here's some more preview of V & J's Central Park Engagement Photography Shoot where we basically went all over Central Park from the upper East Side, Bethesda Fountain, The Ramble, Strawberry Fields, THe Mall/Amphitheather area and more! I'm so happy to have fun couples all the time to work with! Glad they had a wonderful time in their New York City Engagement Shoot and I can't wait for their August wedding! My head is already planning shots and details using golf carts...yes....golf carts. Hope you enjoy these pictures and if you or friends or family members have any questions regarding session, do not hesitate to ask! I can travel to many locations and not just for weddings and engagements, but newborns, family sessions, head shots and more. LOVE LOVE LOVE pictures :-). Which one from the group is your favorite? I have so many! I'll put more pics on my Facebook/angelicacriscuolophotography page soon.

What a fun Engagement photography session! Love New York City in winter and any weather. It was definitely a cold day a few weeks ago, but Vanessa and Jermaine were such troopers that here we were in Central Park in New York...walking around looking like we were having fun for their engagement session...and we were! Despite the cold, these two carried on and made sure the weather didn't dampen our moods or our photo shoot! Good job guys! Here's a few teasers from the shoot! Hope to get to edit them all soon...cannot wait! The first is by a tunnel/bridge by the upper east side. We went through more areas on our way to Strawberry Field where John Lennon is memorialized with the simple work "IMAGINE." I LOVE how my August wedding couple from Staten Island did not hesitate to lay down and take the amazing shot! Actually...several shots. There were many tourists who were standing around wanting to take pictures with the famous emblem on the ground, but we were also not shy about standing our ground to make sure we were next...after all this was an engagement session and the others around us was more forgiving with our enthusiasm. As soon as we were up, off they went and there goes my bride and groom lying in concrete gazing at each other's eyes. Always wanted to do this idea for an e-shoot and finally accomplished it! Thanks V & J! You two are awesome for making this engagement shoot a smash hit. I have so much more pictures to show everyone, but have a lot of other pictures to edit first so please stay tuned and bear with me. I'm also posting pictures at my Facebook page here. Just IMAGINE all the possibilities and what the future holds for these two...cannot wait until August for their wedding in New Jersey!
We found a wooden bench at the end of The Ramble and it was such a scenic sight I had to take pics with it and have the forrest in the background. This was one of my favorite pictures because my assistant (which is also my wonderful and talented husband) was making jokes towards V& J making them laugh. Sometimes I need to tell hubby to tone it down, but sometimes he knows the right moment to make people laugh and the end result is this fun pic of V&J just happy as can be in their engagement shoot. :-).
