Last month my fiance and I took engagement pictures in our New York City stomping grounds. We chose the talented Kesha Lambert to capture the pics. The equally talented Charlene Armstrong did my make-up (I really like how she made my eyes pop!). My fiance — who I’m lovingly referring to as Mr. TK in this post — and I decided to take most of our e-session pics in and around The Cloisters in Fort Tryon Park, located in Inwood, NY. Inwood is just a stone’s throw away from Washington Heights in Upper Manhattan. The Cloisters are in my top fave places in The Big Apple partly because it isn’t on the radar of most folks the way Central Park is and I happen to like that. Fort Tryon Park is also where Mr. TK took me for what I thought was an impromptu date the day he proposed so it will always hold a special significance to us as a couple. I had a really hard time narrowing down selects for today’s (Not Quite) Tie the Knot Tuesday feature. I hope you enjoy the pics as much as we enjoyed taking them.
I’m particularly happy to profile Tie the Knot Tuesday weddings and even e-sessions like this one since every other day for the past couple of weeks I read another depressing report about Black women and marriage. It is lame and exhausting (more on that later). In the meantime, let this couple’s smiles make you smile.
