Tri State

Get ready to feast your eyes on possibly the cutest e-session EVER by the super-talented Kateryn Silva Photography. This couple works at a flying trapeze school in NYC as a side gig to their buttoned-up day jobs and their too-cute-for-words proposal happened right on the trapeze bar! They choose Coney Island as the location for their love shoot and the result is one crazy-fun and crazy-gorgeous image after the next! Fly on over to the full gallery for so much more.

From the Bride-to-Be... While we both work pretty straight-laced jobs in advertising and finance, on the side, Henry and I work at a flying trapeze school here in NYC where Henry is a catcher, snagging students off the trapeze bar, and I work on the platform coaxing the brave and terrified alike into the air. Henry proposed at the school by catching me from the trapeze, and asking me to marry him mid-air. (He's a softie!)

From Kateryn Silva Photography... How cute is that? That pretty much sums up this amazing couple. They wanted to do a circus-themed shoot to honor their love of trapeze, as well as Henry's proposal. They put together their own outfits and got in character. Photographing them was so much fun — their personalities really came through, and they totally fit the part of a beautiful circus couple. We really wanted to squeeze out the best of the old school part of Coney Island while leaving out the crazy crowds, the lines and the sometimes overdone carnival ride shots. So we made it mostly about the couple, their interaction, and just used the color and location as a backdrop for the setting to keep it fresh.
