New York City Engagement: Kaela and Joe

This engagement session is very close to my heart! You see Kaela and I are roommates and all though I am 10 years older then her we get along super well. She is so grown up and mature for her young age. She moved to the city to go to cosmetology school and while volunteering with her church after Hurricane Sandy devastated New York City she met a boy. Not just any boy, THE boy!

I must say that seeing them interact and how caring they are for one another makes me have butterflies in my stomach! True, young love…. *sigh*

This session was actually my idea. I wanted to take advantage of the fall foliage and wanted to get some photos of an adorable couple! I ran the idea by Kaela and she asked Joe and before we knew it we had a date planned. ┬áIt was a beautiful Sunday morning but just as we were getting ready to start our session in Central Park the rain came…so we made a dash for lower Manhattan and found ourselves in Washington Square Park. Thankfully the rain stopped and we were able to shoot some beautiful photos.

Here is how the session started:

And before I knew it, Joe was on one knee and he caught Kaela and myself by surprise. I was just as nervous as her I think.

After just about a year of dating, Kaela and Joe got engaged in the city where they fell in love!

Kaela-you are going to be the most stunning bride!

Afterwards we celebrated with crepes back at the apartment while Kaela and Joe face timed their families to tell them about the engagement! Couldn’t be happier for my roomie!

I am friends with Kaela’s parents from when Nanto’s and my husband and I were all newlyweds living in NY together. We became fast friends and were pregnant together, her with Kaela and me with my first, Brady. I see so much of Cynthia in Kaela. Beautiful photos!! Can’t wait to see the wedding pictures. :)
