Whilst out eating lunch a few Saturdays ago I found myself scrambling to grab my phone as it blared “Call Me, Maybe” embarrassingly loudly in a restaurant. As it happens I had just changed my ringtone and rather than flipping it off as I would during a lunch with someone, I answered it in a flurry of panic. This is how I wound up engaging myself in a spur of the moment engagement shoot…
My friend Lyndsay (whom I’ve had the good fortune of knowing since High school – google away this little lady is a former news reporter and while her path has taken her somewhere new, she is still rockin in the mediasphere) is recently engaged and realized that they had no pictures for their save-the-date. Being resourceful she called me up and asked if I could meet her somewhere in the next hour or so. We decided on the 110th street side of Central Park. While I have no experience shooting engagement photos it certainly helps having photogenic subjects and them having an idea of what they want.
My roommates both agreed that Lyndsay was extremely photogenic and I think you’ll agree I hardly had to do anything at all. That being said here are some of my favorite photos in color and then B&W. [Sidenote: they were going to hand their small camera to tourists at different landmarks in NYC as a backup plan so I’m quite pleased they have some real pictures instead]
