Washington Square Park Engagement
Wintertime in NYC can be a drag! The crowded and slushy subway cars, salty streets and flooded storm drains are no fun to commute in. However, our beautiful city redeems itself offering a host of fun winter activities like ice-skating in Bryant Park, the lighting of the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree, and even sledding down Pilgrim Hill in Central Park! (Get there early, it gets crowded).
This past winter, our photographers joined this cute couple, Julie & Mike as the engaged pair braved the cold and headed over to the popular Washington Square Park in Greenwich Village for a fun engagement shoot.
Washington Square Park, bordered by Waverly Place and Washington Square East, offers a children’s play area, paved walkways, flowerbeds, a large fountain and of course the famous Washington Arch (built to celebrate George Washington’s inauguration). This beautiful park is located in Greenwich Village, a neighborhood known for its colorful, artistic residents and the alternative culture. The village is also home to the world’s largest Halloween Parade every year (come dressed to impress!)
Julie & Mike let out their playful side and snuggled to keep warm as they walked throughout the neighborhood. They kept it casual and dressed in jeans and wool coats for their engagement photos. (Love her checkered scarf!) The soon to be newlyweds even found some mistletoe and honored tradition with a kiss!
Our photographers love the character of this area. You can find vintage oak doors, intricately crafted wrought iron gates, bricked archways and cathedral columns all within a 3-block radius!
The couple warmed up with some hot coco in one of the local coffee shops before heading out. We had a great time with them and look forward to sharing in their big day!
