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.
The photographer behind one of my all-time fave e-sessions, Ilene Squires, recently shared pics of another nearlywed couple with Triple B. While this session is quite different from her aforementioned Harlem-themed shoot and our last camping e-session feature, it certainly evokes just as much love and happiness. What I enjoy most about Tracey and Rashim’s images are the carefree attitude they display. There’s not a lot of makeup and styling, the poses are pretty basic but their connection to each other is palpable.
