fall couples shoot in central park

Happy Friday, lovelies! It is absolutely, gorgeously fall here in NYC! Last weekend, E & I got some photos taken in Central Park to commemorate our first autumn in The Big Apple. We had such a lovely time in the park with Brandi Webb of Alexis June Weddings.  Saturday marked 4.5 years since we got married– I can hardly believe it! Taking these photos reminded me so much of shooting our engagement photos- such a fun and exciting time for any bride. Are you taking engagement photos anytime soon? Let us know if you need any ideas or suggestions for fall engagement photos!


This weekend, E & I are going on our first date booked with! We're so excited to try out the service, and I plan to write a review of our experience after the fact! In the meantime, you can get $50 off your first date by signing up with my exclusive link here. Dating your fiancé/spouse is so important to keeping the passion and romance alive in your relationship. 🙂
