A Sweet City Engagement in Greenwich Village

Megan and Devon met in 2011 and have been head over heels for one another ever since. I was delighted to capture their sweet city engagement portraits in Greenwich Village this past spring. Greenwich Village is a wonderful place to shoot, particularly in the evening time.┬áThe bright, clear day offered perfectly golden light, giving many of Devon and Megan’s portraits a stunning glow that can only be captured on film.

Diamonds, Cupcakes, and Love

The shot that every couple always wants during their engagement portrait session is a beautiful photograph of the ring. For me, there are several secrets to success to getting the perfect shot. The first secret is, no two perfect ring shots will be the same! So doing something fun to make yours unique is highly recommended. We went into an adorable little bakery to pick up a sweet, simple cupcake for an extra touch. It made for several fun portraits. The other thing to remember is to have nice, simple nails so your ring really shines. Megan’s whole look is elegant and allows for her ring and smile to take the spotlight. Plus, I love the pop of red in her shoes!
