Central Park Belvedere Castle Engagement | Hannah & Doug

New York, New York


I’m so grateful to Hannah and Doug for helping me to explore Central Park outside of my usual shooting areas!

Pretty much every time I shoot an engagement session in Central Park, I stick to the Bow Bridge and Bethesda Terrace areas. When Hannah and I first started chatting about their engagement photos, she really wanted to go somewhere different — but still shoot in New York City, a meaningful place since it’s where she and Doug live and have made so many memories together.

When Hannah suggested Belvedere Castle, I was so excited to check it out. This unique spot certainly transports you to what feels like another time, and it was so fun getting to shoot in a new spot.

Hannah and Doug have been together for three and a half years now, and recently got engaged in a place that’s certainly on my bucket list — Santorini, Greece. I truly can’t imagine a more magical proposal, and am so incredibly happy for the two of them.

Hannah’s ring is so beautiful and unique. “A three stone pear ring, and exactly what I wanted,” she explained to me. I have been seeing so many three stone rings lately, and I’m obsessed!

These two are tying the knot next April at The Lotte New York Palace in the city, and I could not be more excited to capture their special day. Congratulations, Hannah and Doug!
