NY Central Park Conservatory Garden Wedding Engagement photos | Tatyana + Bryan

I had the pleasure of capturing Tatyana and Bryan's Central Park Conservatory Garden engagement session in Manhattan's Upper East Side on 105th street entrance. The park is a great background for any New York engagement photos and they definitely cater to New York weddings as well. When we walked in, the cherry blossoms were blooming, the tulips were reaching for the sun, the grass was green, and of course there were people everywhere! That's all right, since as a professional, I work with my bride and groom to ensure they have a blast as well as ensure their photos look like it's just them in the park. Tatyana was glowing and she picked a dress that Carrie from Sex in the City also wore...LOVE it! Bryan just looks dashing in his blue button down shirt and slacks. Definitely a great couple to photograph and work with. I wanted to showcase Tatyana's gorgeous dress in many of the photos as well as just show the romance in the simple posing given to the couple. Most of the time, I just told them to hold each other since that's your future spouse! Once they ear that, they get that twinkle and smile and the rest is captured. Hope you enjoy the teasers below!

Time Square New York Engagement Photography + Central Park | Giselle + Kelvin

New_York_Wedding_Photos_Time_Square_Central_Parks-83.jpg

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!

How to Prepare for your Engagement Photo Session & What to Wear - NYC Wedding Engagement Photography

NYC-Wedding-Photographer-SouthStreet-Seaport-Engagement-Photos-Ideas-Katrina-and-Nick-WEB-106.jpg
It's the high-end of wedding season and with New Yorck City wedding engagement photography sessions still underway, couples are still inquiring how to prepare for their photo session. Whatever time of year, whether it's the Fall season with beautiful leaves hanging on before winter arrives, or the Holiday season with fun lights and decorations, or the spring and summer season, which is the most popular engagement booking dates, couples are always in need of guidance on how to prepare for their engagement photos. They also need help with determining what to wear for their first photo shoot and as photographers, it's important we help all our clients feel ready for this first part of their journey. The more couples are prepared, the more comfortable they will be in front of the camera and they'll easily see how this trial-run before their big wedding day can be a walk through the park!! Here are some points I've made a habit of letting clients know...and it can also apply to any photography session:
NYC Wedding Photographer South Street Seaport Engagement Photos Ideas Katrina and Nick

1. Choose a location that best fits your personality and that has a place of meaning. Couples tend to me more comfortable in a surrounding they already know. However, many of my couples are from out of town so if they're not flying me or traveling me to a different location other than New York City, they come to me and I advise them a few locations that fits their personality and what they're looking for in a photo shoot.

2. I tell couples to dress however they feel is comfortable for them. Basically, whatever makes them feel good is best since we want a relaxed feel to their photos. If they want to dress up, they'll add the elegance and sexy factor to their photography session.

3. Let clients know to try not wearing busy patterns where one is wearing plaid, and the other is wearing stripes that just doesn't work. Fashion statements are everywhere, but not everyone understands how to put varying styles together. Most of the time I have my clients email me pictures of their outfits! If anything, letting clients know that bold colors are great for images is helpful enough.

4. If they have already chosen their wedding colors, then they can incorporate that color into their outfits as little details (a scarf, a shirt color, a blazer, a belt, etc). I do ask them to try not to wear too much black or white, but if they choose to do so to make sure they have a strong accent piece to give a pop of color and have that separation from all the black or white.

5. I have them think about wearing layers (from a nice jacket, to a sweater or cardigan that can be taken off...of course this depends on the season) so as the session progresses there can be a different look without changing an entire outfit.

6. I make sure clients view my website and get a feel for my style of shooting and what they can expect. I do let them know each photographer is different, so if there's a photo that inspires them, we can see if the inspiration can work in their session, but it's not going to look exactly like the picture.

7. I let them know that if they have any props (signs, flowers, scrabble pieces, iPhones with pictures, umbrella, anything!) then they should bring it and we can try to incorporate it in our session.

8. Make sure to tell them you'll be shooting close-ups of their rings so they should make sure to have their ring cleaned if possible, have clean and neat fingernails, or get a manicure. I let them know to bring lotion as well so their hands look fresh. If there are any other details important to them like a special bracelet or cuff links they've gifted each other, then they should let me know in advance so I can make sure to get those details as well.

9. Clients can also bring lip gloss, chapstick, powder, tissues and walking shoes if necessary!

10. Speaking of shoes, have them cleaned if there are a lot more scruff in them and remember socks do at times show up in full body pictures (sitting down) so make sure they match...yes there was an instance where it didn't really match and I had to work around it. It wasn't a big deal, but still a good point to let clients know.

11. One of the most important FYIs I let client know is that we will be shooting rain or shine except in hurricane/thunderstorm weather.  I let them know we will plan the shoot accordingly closer to the date and if it rains we'll plan to shoot closer to overhang areas or just have fun in the rain! Of course it's up to your business model how you want to handle your re-scheduling process.

Additional Must-Know and how to prepare for your engagement sessions:

1. Ladies! Make sure you pay attention to your eye makeup since we do want your beautiful eyes to show. Eyeliner and good mascara are a must to help exemplify the windows to your soul. I love it when ladies smile with just their eyes in addition to real laughter and enjoyment.

2. For makeup, you can apply  like you normal, although make it a bit heavier if you want it to show through the photos. Bring the basics with you to our shoot for quick touch ups.

3. Ladies and Gentlemen, make sure to moisturize your lips before and during the shoot. Having dry and cracked lips are difficult to touch up later in the pictures and most photographers will charge additional fee for heavier and more lengthy editing. This goes for moisturizing arms and legs. Let your skin glow! However, DO NOT do any tanning before your engagement session then decide to wear a strapless dress. Tan lines are a no-no! We can say the same thing about your wedding!
4. For those that wear glasses, remember that some glasses reflect light and may cause a glare and shadows over your eyes. Having to edit out glare and shadows takes a lot of time and usually is done by a more trained editor, which again is an additional fee. Photographers do not want their clients to change their look, so couples, consider going to your eye doctor or optometrist to maybe add-on a glare-free coating to your glasses if they have the option. This should be done at least two weeks before your session to get your glasses ready for your session.
5. Bring any hair spray, brush/comb, etc. again for some quick fixes in between photos. Definitely bring clips or bobby pins, hair ties, and whatever else you normally use for your hair.

As you can see, many of the above can apply to any photo shoot, whether it's an engagement session, or a wedding. If you do not remember to do any of the above, that's OK! This is just a guide to ensure you have enough information to prepare you for your photo session. As you can see, many of my couples are either dressed up with dresses and suits, or a sun dress and a nice shirt and pants for the men, to the more casual T-shirt and jeans. Many of my couples book multiple hours so we can have various wardrobe changes and go through multiple locations. However it is you want your engagement session to be, in the end, just enjoy, relax, and trust your photographer!

Marie & Don - Central Park In-Love Couple's Photography

DonMarie_NYC_CentralPark_Photo_Session-Ideas-Couples_002.jpg

When couples are in love, it just shows through the camera's lens. The way a couple can just be together and forget all about the world is just truly magical, and Marie and Don can teach us all a few lessons in love. They're both from Canada, but NYC and Central Park has a special meaning for them. Don surprised Marie with a trip to New York City when they first started dating. Marie had always wanted to go to NYC and experience what it had to offer so when they can they visit the city. It's hard to get away at times especially when you're running a school back in Canada, but love is patient, love is kind...and love will always be there when it's true as it patiently waits for a weekend of fun to just celebrate life. This couple's in-love NYC photography session was actually a gift for Don, who tends to be behind the camera so there isn't a lot of pictures of them together....what a great gift! I definitely feel the same way! :-) I just enjoyed this session so much and was very glad and thankfully blessed another wonderful client referred Marie and Don to me. To meet them and other couples, enjoying their company, learning their story, and finding out more about how they met and what their life is like definitely makes a full day's work worthwhile. It doesn't even make it feel like work, just all of us strolling through Central Park taking photographs by Bethesda Fountain and Bow Bridge and having fun on a beautiful winters day!  They were actually back in NYC this past Valentine's Day and in a few weeks they're off to Barbados to celebrate their anniversary...Don proposed to Marie at the Crane Resort! Yes, for those that has been following my blog, I was just there shooting a destination wedding...what a small world! Thank you Marie and Don for a fabulous photography session!

T&M's NYC Sunset Wedding in Chelsea

Nothing like a NYC summer wedding to photograph to show how much love is in the air. He's from Canada, she's from New York, and together they are the sweetest couple you can meet. With the threat of rainstorms all week, Tina & Matt's wedding was nothing but sunshine...well a lot of it. However, you couldn't tell it was about 90 degrees outside with the way this bridal party carried on. With a bottle of water in each of their hand we set off for Central Park after a touching first look at the Park Central Hotel in Manhattan, New York City. The hotel was busy and packed with tourists, but I found a section that was more calm and had the groom stand there and wait for his bride to come up the stairs. Tina looked amazing in her custom made gown created by one of her bridesmaids Namyoung Park (Nammade). Every detail is very much like the bride's personality and it was no wonder Matt had the reaction he did when he first saw his bride in her gown. After a touching moment, we were off to the Park. I figured start the session inside a tunnel to wean the party towards more sun later on. After this scene, headed to Bethesda Fountain and cooled off underneath the gorgeous archways and ceilings by the fountain. We ended the session at The Mall...However, we lost two groomsmen on the way out of the park, so the ladies decided to get a quick picture by John Lennon's "IMAGINE" tribute. All in all it was a fun photography session, and an even more fun reception! One highlight of the night was the groom serenading his beautiful bride. Yes, he sings and plays the guitar and I can attest to the fact that every woman in the room swooned whether they were already married or not. It was amazing to hear and see and I was very happy to capture it all. Even more amazing was the sunset. The reception took place at the Sunset Terrace in Chelsea Piers and it was definitely a sunset to behold. The backdrop looked amazing and this photographer took advantage of the gorgeous colors. Tina and Matt, thank you for giving me the honor to photograph your wedding. Here are a few highlights from their wedding day as well as their photo sliedeshow!

Proposal in Grand Central's Whispering Gallery E + N

2012-05-17EugeneNicoleEngaged-181.jpg

A few weeks ago, I was asked to take part in a secret mission...Now I'm all about secrecy and keeping everything in the "DL" (is that how you say it these days?) and I pride myself in being great at keeping secrets. I'm so good at keeping secrets that I tend to forget what the secret is all about until someone brings it up! Yup, my brain is Fort Knox except I don't know where the key would be after awhile :-). In any case, I was very excited to know that the secret mission had to do with a surprise proposal! Love proposals and love being a co-conspirator! So about our couple, Eugene and Nicole met while working in an Apple store years ago and they have been inseparable since. How cute is that? First working in an Apple store (awesome in itself) then being able to flirt with the cute guy/girl you see almost everyday (that would make sure you're never late going to work!), then going out with said cute guy/girl :-).  Well, after finishing school and finishing law school, Eugene thought it was time to start the next chapter of his life with the only person he could ever imagine spending his life with, and that was Nicole. He definitely wanted to do the proposal at the Whispering Gallery in Grand Central Station. For those who never heard of the area, it is located just outside The Oyster Bar downstairs. When two people stand at the opposite end, you can really hear them speak or whisper as if they were right next to you! I tried it with Eugene right before Nicole showed up to make sure the legend was true :-D. In order to get Nicole to the area, Eugene pretended they were meeting people for dinner at the Oyster Bar. Once she showed up, he mentioned he wanted to try something...and the rest was history. You can see from the pictures the progress of the proposal and let me just say it was one of the best proposal I have seen. As I was taking pictures I was tearing up and made myself stop because I needed to see what I was taking pictures of and make sure everything was in focus!

Congratulations Eugene and Nicole, you two are going to be very happy together I am sure of it and here's to a new adventure!

The location....

The wait....

The whisper...

The realization.

The response...

The reply...which was "YES!"The reality...The tears of joy...The love...The victory...

The beginning...The ring...The "I still can't believe this is happening" look... The "I can't stop myself from smiling"

New York Engagement - Jacqueline & Thomas

2012-05-02JacquelineThomasEngagementSession-101.jpg

I'm so happy to share these photos from Jacqueline and Thomas' engagement session! We shot in the lower east side of Manhattan in Stuyvesant Town. With NY's unpredictable weather, it was raining a bit, but you couldn't tell with the way J + T smiled at one another! L-O-V-E was definitely in the air and these two college sweethearts deserves so much happiness. We centered our session in front of the Stuy-town fountain since that was the location where Thomas proposed. Very sweet and I wish them all the very best! Here's a few images from their fun session. My favorite (and J + T's favorite too) is the pose with the squirrell. I swear Mr. Squirrell...I shall name him Jack... wanted to be part of the shoot. He was staring at us for quite awhile until he finally photo bombed the picture! Sneaky little thing. He stole the show, but only for a moment :-).

Guadalupe & Roy's Brooklyn Botanical Garden Engagement

2012-04-21GuadalupeRoyBKLYNBotanicalGardenFINAL-29.jpg

Had such a wonderful time at the Brooklyn Botanical Garden in April 2012!!!! Guadalupe and Roy are such a fun couple to take pictures of and I'm very honored they chose me to capture their engagement. They both had a strong connection with one another and it shows! Love how couples are up for anything fun and here we definitely took advantage of the cherry blossoms that bloomed throughout the park. We were very lucky to catch the blooms before the trees started to turn vibrant greens. We got there early, right when the park opened, and in a few minutes the park was packed with onlookers enjoying the beautiful day. If you haven't been to the Brooklyn Botanical Garden then you have to go! It's beautiful all year, but the best time to go is during the peak of the cherry blossom season. Here are pictures of G + R enjoying just being together in the park. Thanks again for being such a great couple to work with!

In-Love Session in New York City's Chinatown

2012-02-20JenniferMokInLoveSessionFINAL-24.jpg

What photographer doesn't like doing an in-love session in New York City? My couple Jennifer and Michael took the streets of Chinatown where Jenn grew up...By the way, it turns out me and Jennifer went to the same high school together! Such a small world....and no I'm not about to pull out my yearbook, scan it and show you all how we looked like XX amount of years ago going to school in F.H. LaGuardia High School of Music and Arts and the Performing Arts. Whew, it's still too long to type or say. In any case, here we were in Chinatown and these two love birds were troopers! It was a pretty day, but still a little chilly, but they were happy to take off their jackets to get a couple of fun shots during their mini session. Thank you Jennifer and Michael for a fun photography session!
