Can we talk about how beautiful Ali and Chris’s engagement session photos are?!?! We had one of the absolute best mornings in Central Park and luckily for us, the cherry blossoms were at their peak bloom. The couple danced and played under the blooms and we had the best time during their engagement photos. This Spring in NYC was incredible and I’m so happy we were able to capture this amazing time (that only happens once a year!) for Ali and Chris. I cannot wait to spend even more time with them (and their families!) during their wedding at The Liberty Warehouse in Brooklyn!!
When you live in New York City, you tend to not do a lot of touristy things or visit too many famous places because well, it's always crowded. I've lived in New York all of my life (minus my few months in Hong Kong) and have never visited Top of The Rock at Rockefeller Center until Asher and David's anniversary session. Boy, was I missing out! The sweeping city views were absolutely breathtaking! When my good friend Asher asked me to photograph her 5 year wedding anniversary session with her husband David, I was completely honored.
Asher is a wedding photographer as well and it's always an honor when another photographer asks you to photograph them. We woke up with sun and visited the famous steps of The Metropolitan Museum of Art before heading to Top of The Rock before it opened. There was already a line by 8 am so if you plan on visiting, get there early! Asher rented a stunning red dress (by my prompting!) from the Rent The Runway because red on film is absolutely incredible. So vibrant and magical if you ask me! Happy 5 years to Asher and David! Can't wait to see what the next 5 years have in store for you! xo - Jainé
Fall is definitely one of my favorite times of the year. I love the changing colors of the leaves, you get to wear sweaters and the light is absolutely the prettiest in New York City. I was so happy when Sue and Chris wanted to take their engagement photos in the beginning of September. We took full advantage of the empty streets and a quiet Central Park early in the morning. The American Museum of Natural History was the perfect location to begin their session because it's the exact spot where Chris got down on one knee and proposed to Sue. So sweet!! I'm thrilled to share a few of my favorite engagement photos from their session and I cannot wait for their wedding next year Brooklyn Botantic Garden. Enjoy! xo
I'm so excited to share a few of my favorite images from Meredith and Tyler's West Village Engagement Session in New York City. We took full advantage of their apartment buildings amazing rooftop views before walking around some of their favorite streets in the West Village. How amazing are those ivy walls?! I cannot wait for their wedding in a few short weeks at The Bridgehampton Tennis & Surf Club in the Hamptons. It's going to be absolutely gorgeous!! xo
New York City engagement sessions are simply the sweetest and I'm excited to share a few of my favorite photos from Neana and Ali's session. They are both from California but now call NYC home. The happy couple chose to visit a few of their favorite locations in the lower east side including Freeman's and Morgenstern's Finest Ice Cream Shop before we walked over to the private and stunning Elizabeth Street Garden. Neana and Ali visit this secret garden often and received permission to take a few photos inside the quiet oasis. As we walked the cobblestone streets of SoHo, the couple gushed with excitement about their upcoming wedding at Daniel. A small intimate wedding to celebrate 10 years together and I'm so honored I could be part of their love story. Enjoy!
