We don’t feature a ton of e-sessions on SMP because we like to focus more on the details and the style of a real wedding…BUT, I couldn’t resist sharing this one with you. The photographs, by CLY Creation, are so insanely beautiful. Romantic, ethereal, artistic. Images that you could easily hang on the walls of your home and without a doubt use as incredible inspiration for your own engagement portraits. To see even more, click right here.

My fiancee and I chose downtown NYC as the backdrop for our engagement session with CLY Creation because I grew up in the city and went to high school just behind the buildings that served as our backdrop.  Being in front of the skyline, something I grew up looking at, felt very homey, believe it or not!  I also liked the idea of juxtaposing the grandness of the skyscrapers against the tenderness between the two of us.

CLY Creation has a vintage look to its photographs, which I adore, and so I paired a pearl necklace and pearls on my ears with my vintage-y polka-dot silk shantung dress.  We also brought along our save-the-date:  bookmarks that we DIY-ed with custom illustration done by the Emmy Award-winning artist Seonna Hong, my fiancee’s sister!  All in all, the result, I think, was the perfect twist on a vintage-New York photoshoot!
