We all know that New York City is one of the coolest places on the planet… that’s a fact. But throw in an adorable duo who are super excited to say “I do” and a day of lovely captured by Theo Milo and it becomes one of the most romantic places on earth, as well. Greatest city on earth? We think so. See all of the lovely right here.
From the Bride… Even though Peter and I will be getting married next year in my home state of North Carolina, we both liked the idea of getting our engagement photos taken in NYC. Manhattan has always been the backdrop to our relationship and now it is where we have made our first home together. We live in the Bowery, right in the mecca of three hip and trendy neighborhoods (SoHo, Lower East Side, and the East village) and we really wanted pictures to reflect our real lives in our actual hang out spots. I had the idea of an ‘Uptown & Downtown’ engagement shoot theme and spent a lot of time scoping out street art locales around our neighborhood (and not to mention deciding on just the right amount of leather!).
While I love the timelessness of our shots in Central Park, I’m a bit obsessed with how our downtown pictures came out. Our photographer, Theo Milo, did an amazing job working with all of the locations we gave him. It’s hard to believe that all of the downtown photos are within a three block radius of our house – Theo even got our normal coffee spot to look magical. And we lucked out with the bold graffiti wall right across from our apartment, it changes all the time and this had to be the best one I’ve seen yet. Some of my favorites are with our adorable puppy, Bowery, she steals the show! Being a southerner it took me a while to embrace the city, but now I feel so lucky we get to spend this fun time in our lives in the greatest city in the world.
