Fort Tryon Park Engagement
Our photographers recently had the honor or working with this adorable couple, Elizabeth & Luis, for a summer-time engagement shoot in Fort Tryon Park. They were a pleasure to work with and clearly very in love! The chemistry between them was perfect and as you can see, translated beautifully in their photos!
From their first date Luis knew he would make Elizabeth his wife one day and fell in love at first sight! Her quiet and sweet demeanor complimented his loud and blunt “true-New Yorker “ personality. Their “opposites attract” love story is an inspiration to all of the boisterous, tattooed-straphangers seeking their tranquil warmhearted counterparts!
“Elizabeth my fiancé and I fell in love on site! She’s quiet and sweet .I’m blunt and loud! Being day and night really balances us out! I knew I would be marrying her after a couple of weeks of meeting her and here we are now ready to tie the knot! Yeah we go through the typical love battles and that comes with the commitment! No matter what, we always choose to love and rely on our faith in love! Typical bad boy good girl story but it’s also our own little fairy tale!”
They chose Fort Tryon Park in the Washington Heights section of Manhattan for their engagement shoot. The 67-acre park is positioned above a ridge in upper Manhattan and offers amazing views of the Hudson River, George Washington Bridge and Harlem River. A true hidden gem, Fort Tryon Park is a great alternative to the more popular (and crowded) Central and Prospect Parks.
The advantage of shooting in one of NYC’s 1700 public Parks is the diversity of settings and backgrounds offered in one location. Engagement shoots are typically only 1-2 hours, so being able to walk to several locations in a short time frame is a great way to ensure variety in your photos. Utilizing props such as picnic baskets and flowers like Elizabeth and Luis did is also a great option!
Our couple (and photography team) was thrilled with how this shoots turned out. We are super excited for them and can’t wait to share in their big day!
Our groom offers a word of advice to other engaged- couples on how to capture amazing engagement photos like theirs… “Working with Le image has been not only great but fun! They are very welcoming and easy to work with. They’re work is of grade A photography and we are looking forward to them working on our wedding!…To have a great shoot, you should have a couple of things to keep in mind! For one, know your location to have a sense of the area for good shots and not to waste any time. Another would be to enjoy the day with your fiancé. Think of it as another awesome date. Don’t mind the photographer… meaning try to focus on each other and your love! This makes for beautiful intimate moments captured! Last but no least, work with Le image! They are highly professional, easy to work with and guarantee great photos! “…
