Kristen and Mike decided to keep their engagement session close to home, which, when you live near Prospect Park, is a no-brainer! Kristen loves the Society for Ethical Culture building on the park, so we headed over there for some shots, and we also got to include their adorable puppy, Toby:)

Monika and Joel had a gorgeous day for their engagement session at Grand Central! We had a lot of fun exploring. This little diner is across from the main entrance, and I love the entryway window (plus, it complemented Monika’s dress perfectly:))
