We loved Andrew and Tara’s idea to have a more intimate lifestyle engagement session in their apartment in Jersey City.  Once they started to tell us about some of their hobbies and day to day activities we knew this would be an amazing shoot.  They both love to read and with Tara working as a book editor and Andrew finishing his masters in literature, it was evident books would be involved.  Tara and Andrew are so affectionate to one another and had some awesome ideas for their lifestyle engagement session. Their shoot is a little story about their life together right now and we love that. Andrew grinds and brews his own coffee and while Tara does not drink it, she was a good sport to hold a cup with him and relax on the couch. They live near the waterfront in Jersey City which has a gorgeous view of the Manhattan skyline. Even though it was nice and cold, we were very lucky it was not raining.  Even if it had rained, they would have been holding onto each other and just as adorable.  They will be getting married in Arizona and we are so excited to be a part of their day.

Going to New York was a big adventure in many ways for us.  While Mike and I have traveled the country on road trips, going to New York was my first time on a plane. Crazy right!!! I have been in a small 4 passenger plane, but never a commercial flight.  Luckily I loved it and have no fear of flying because we have been flying all over the place this year and have many destinations on our calendar.

We were in New York in the middle of April and while it was still pretty cold and rainy, we got to see the cherry blossoms blooming all over the city.  Even in the rain and cold it is a gorgeous place to be and we cannot wait for our next trip back.

Most of the photos shown here are in Central Park.  We explored a lot more of the city than just Central Park, but our hotel was next to the park and so we walk through it every day multiple times.  There are still so many places we did not get to visit, and because of the rain, there are a lot of places we did visit but only got to photograph with our iPhone.  We decided not to show off many of those awesome iphone photos.  Mostly we shot with our Mamiya 645 AFD ii using Fuji 400h, Portra 400, Porta 800, Ilford 3200, and Fuji Neopan Acros 100.

These last three shots are just from an iPhone.  We took some awesome photos in Time Square at night on B&W film with our Mamiya 645 AFD ii.  Those photos still need to be scanned so they can be shared in another post.
