This fun, urban engagement shoot comes to us from Elyse Jankowski Photography, based in South Orange, New Jersey! Here’s Elyse to tell us more:
I’ve known Chris and Teresa for years, so when he proposed, I was beyond thrilled! My heart skipped another beat when they wanted their engagement session to be in NYC. We scheduled several hours to explore the famously photogenic city, hopping taxi cabs, getting romantic in the subway and visiting spots special to Chris and Teresa, like St. Marks Ale House and Strawberry Fields.
We’ve all got a little rock and roll in our blood – me as a former zine editor/concert promoter, Chris as George Harrison in Beatlemania Now, and Teresa as a blue-haired punk dreamboat Hot Topic manager. So, to make things even more fun, Chris picked out some classic rock photos to recreate, including The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan album cover on Jones Street.
While we were quite bummed that the Dakota was under renovation, thus preventing our John Lennon and Yoko Ono recreation in front of the building, we found plenty of other amazing spots to take advantage of. This was absolutely one of my favorite engagements, solidifying that adventure sessions are the best, and photo-taking is always greatly enhanced when you’re friends! Hope you enjoy :)
Congratulations Teresa & Chris and thank you Elyse for sharing! For more information about Elyse Jankowski Photography, please visit her website.
