Julianne & Duane E-Session: NYC Grand Central Station & Central Park

Julianne is a friend of one of my best friends from high school. Therese and Julianne met in college and stayed friends all these years. Julianne and I were attending one of Therese's party a few years back. We were outside the front yard when she told me that if one day she decides to get married (at that time, she didn't have a boyfriend yet) she will definitely want me to be her photographer. Many people say that to me, but Julianne actually meant it. A year ago, she was engaged to Duane. First thing she did was contacted me via email to let me know about the good news, then she immediately asked me to be her photographer. I was so honored :) It doesn't get better than this.

Julianne lives in NYC, so I was out there this week doing their engagement session pictures. It was so much fun running around the city. Grand Central Station was so crowded when we got there in the morning because of a press conference. It didn't slow us down one bit, we found locations after locations for beautiful shots. These two were such ham!! They played, they laughed, they had a great time. We ended our shoot in Central Park, then headed to our lunch spot in mid-town. Fun Fun Fun!

Let's start the day with a shot of the Grand Central Station:

I love this shot, something about the juxtapose of the cop and them!

Central Park

Beautiful cherry blossom behind them

This can easily passed for Europe...somewhere in Italy...right??

I was sitting there next to Julianne when Duane decided to take my camera and become the photographer. They were so silly and fun to be around.

We had lunch after a long shoot around the city. We stopped by this awesome awesome Japanese restaurant in mid-town for lunch. Well, we had to take a picture to show you all.
