Carrie & Rob – New York, NY – Engaged

Carrie and Rob met me for their beautiful engagement session at the High Line, and we had a fun time exploring and finding pretty spots! I love the High Line — although I’ve shot there many times before, something new and unexpected always pops up. Afterwards, we hit the streets and headed to Van Leeuwen’s ice cream truck. Check out the photos at the end of this post for some ice cream deliciousness:)

I met up with Rachel and Marc in the lovely Argyle Park in Roslyn, NY, for their engagement session, and they couldn’t have picked a more gorgeous day! We had a lot of fun hanging out and strolling around the lake. The light was beautiful, and there were so many pretty spots for portraits:)

Her older brother (who is 100% energy!) may look familiar — I had the pleasure of doing a family portrait session with them a while back:)
