Ashleigh & Edward’s Engagement Photos in New York City

Last September, Joel and I met Ashleigh and Edward for delicious dinner and drinks at 40 Paper in Camden (if you haven't been, go!). Three hours later, Joel and I walked away thinking the same thing... They are both really great, interesting people. They've also experienced some amazing places. Ashleigh is from Australia, while Edward was born in Hong Kong and attended boarding school in England (yes, he has an accent!). Now, they find themselves together living in New York City, and planning a Maine destination wedding. We'll be photographing their wedding this August at French's Point in Stockton Springs, and we can't wait!

While planning their engagement session, Ashleigh said she wanted to plan it for when the city's cherry blossoms were in bloom, and I'm so happy that we did! They made for a stunning backdrop. Ashleigh and Edward were incredible hosts, and since Joel had never been to New York and I hadn't in years, they turned our day of shooting into a day of shooting/dining/touring. It was wonderful. We shot in Grand Central Station, Central Park and the West Village just to name a few spots. We also stopped for some famous Magnolia Bakery cupcakes, which were featured on Sex and the City and were delicious! We ended with wine back at their apartment where hours of talk (wedding for the girls, film for the boys) rounded out the day.

Ashleigh and Edward, thanks for inviting us to the city and into your beautiful home! We can't wait to see you in August!
