New York City was just MADE for engagement sessions or at least it seems that way when you lay your eyes on a fabulous shoot like this. Lucas Tingle + Melissa Howlett of Winding Violets had us at Hello with all of these pretty images and Central Park, the Highline and the fabulous citiscapes of NYC are but an added bonus. Get your Big Apple lovin on in the full gallery!
From Winding Violets…Kristin and Matt have been living in New York City for 3 years; they are the perfect New York City couple: smart, sexy, & sophisticated. Both Kristin and Matt moved to the city independent of one another, him from Connecticut & her from a small town in Ontario, Canada (Kingston).
Kristin and Matt met in New York and fell in love with each other and the city. They now live together on the Upper East Side near Central Park. Central Park has special significance for Kristin and Matt, as it was the site of their first date. Matt thought it would be a romantic idea to take Kristin skating on Wollman Rink. They spent a lovely evening circling Wollman with the city lights filling the Manhattan night’s sky. Matt did walk away a little emasculated, as Kristin has done some competitive figure skating in her past, so she showed him up a little. He should have known better though, taking a Canadian skating?
Following Central Park, we visited The High Line for sundown. The High Line is a relatively new feature of the great City of New York. Chelsea doesn’t have a proper green space, so the city thought it would be a great idea to renovate the old elevated train line that runs through Chelsea into a boardwalk/park. The High Line over looks the Hudson River and runs from 30th to 13th on the lower West Side. They maintain some terrific details that subtly remind the visitors of the train line that once ran where they now walk. Next time you’re in New York City, make sure to visit The High Line for yourselves it’s quite beautiful.
