Astoria Park Engagement
Yasmeen & Alex are an adorable couple and Astoria Park was the perfect place for our photographer to capture their engagement shoot. They wanted a laid back and carefree vibe for their photos to display the playful side of their relationship. New York is full of public parks that offer great views and aesthetic for photos. Astoria Park, on the west shore of Queens, is one of the oldest and largest parks in NYC and is a great choice for engagement photos. The park offers panoramic views of the Manhattan skyline and long quiet walkways.
Yasmeen, who is Puerto Rican and Pakistani, is gorgeous and wore a yellow lace dress with sandals that complimented her petite frame beautifully (check out that amazing hair!) Her fiancé, Alex’s heritage hails from South America and Greece. He dressed in pastel colors as well with a cool button down, khaki pants and straw hat. This is one hot couple!
The couple enjoyed the beautiful weather and playfully danced on the lawns of the park. (No we did not have a wind machine and yes the wind perfectly blew her hair like that! ) Yasmeen and Alex had a great time as they made their way down the pathways and under the brick archways of this beautiful park. After all that walking they needed a break and took a breather on one of the park benches (every moment is a photo opportunity for our team!)
Clients often ask us what they should do for engagement photos when there is rain expected. Our answer is always “go with the flow” and you can see that advice paid off for this shoot. A quick rain shower didn’t phase them and actually made for some really cute photos of them sharing a kiss under the umbrella. (thank goodness our photographer came prepared!)
All in all this was a great engagement shoot! A beautiful park, a gorgeous couple and even a rain shower added to this fun day. We were honored to be a part of it!
