This fun, romantic engagement shoot comes to us from Aline Marin Photography, based in Marietta, Georgia! Here’s Aline to tell us more:

Real life stories happen everyday, unexpected situations that may change your lives forever. This sweet couple that are getting married in a couple of months have an amazing story and would love to share with us romantics. They ran into each other at the grocery store line in Philly, and made small talk. Omoleye had just relocated there, Justin’s home town. He told her about his amazing gym and than parted away as the line progressed. A few days later, Omoleye was out with a friend to pick someone up. As they arrived she recognized the name as the same gym Justin mentioned. Inside it just so happened Omoleye ran into Justin again! Justin asked Omoleye to join him out that weekend and the two enjoyed live jazz in the city. From that moment on the two were inseparable.

This stylish, urban engagement shoot comes to us from Bryan Sargent Photography, based in New York, New York! Here’s Bryan to tell us more:

Marie and Pat wanted to really highlight different aspects of New York City for their engagement session. We started at the top… Top of the Rock, looking over all of Manhattan. Then it was up to Shakespeare Garden in Central Park to take advantage of the lovely flowers in bloom. Then it was south through the park, eventually coming across a man from Central Park Bubbles. After a little donation and some quick planning, we got some incredible shots through the massive bubbles. We ended the session back in their neighborhood downtown and at the place where these two lovebirds first met, Von Bar.

Rock and Roll Inspired New York City Engagement Shoot (8)

 

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.
