Is there anything prettier than cherry blossom engagement photos in Central Park?
When Spring hits New York City you know that it’s only a matter of time before the cherry blossoms start bursting through their branches. The thing about cherry blossoms is that you can’t ever be sure when they are going to bloom, and they tend to disappear almost as soon as they’ve arrived.
For this amazing e-session, we set out to meet Katie and Alec at Central Park near the beautiful Bethesda Fountain (literally one of the most incredible places on Earth) just as the sun was coming up. That way, we had the luminous glow of the morning light, and the park was left to just ourselves and early morning runners.
When we planned our session out for the end of April, there was a giddy happy dance brewing inside of me at the thought of photographing an engagement session during the epic cherry blossom explosion.
Just a few days before our session together, the trees in Central Park were still just beginning to wake up from their winter slumber. So when we arrived the morning of Katie and Alec’s session, I was completely taken aback by the burst of blooms that seemed to awaken overnight to fill every inch of the open space above us like a rose-colored cloud.
It was such a gorgeous setting for this adorable and sweet couple and we are so excited to share with you all the prettiness of that perfect pink-petaled morning in the pictures below!
