Central Park Belvedere Castle Engagement

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!
