Marisa + Neal | Central Park Engagement Session

Bloggers meet Marisa + Neal…

New York City - Central Park Engagement Session - Getter1

The air was crisp and spring-like.  The light was amber and rising.  And the love was evident!

Just before heading home to Charlotte last week, we wrapped up our four day shooting extravaganza with a peaceful stroll through Central Park.  Marisa and Neal spend quite a bit of time in the city for both work and pleasure, so when I asked them how they felt about shooting their eSession there, it was an instant, “Yes!”  As with any portrait shoot, our goal is to create looks that are reflective of the couple.  This super sweet duo resemble an amazing abundance of timeless beauty.  Marissa has a conservative side during the week (hello…she’s a doctor – oh how I love strong women!!), but loves to sass it up on the weekends (gosh, she’s a beauty!).  Neal is a guys guy!  Very much the gentleman, his style is very sharp and clean.  YUM!

They are set to marry this August at the swanky Ritz-Carlton, and I cannot WAIT to see what they have designed (I’ve head Crawford and Company Florist is stepping in and creating something magical!).  A special thank you to, Lindsey Regan Thorne for putting together this look – I am in love with the softness Marisa and Neal express!

Oh the hat!!  It was BORROWED from Marisa’s sister’s boyfriend.  It was given to him by Sean Lennon – YEP…JOHN LENNON’s son!!  Oh my nervous heart as we photographed it!!
