We met this beautiful couple for their engagement shoot this past Sunday in Flushing Meadow Park. Lauren grew up in Queens and was very familiar with the park as she spent a lot of time there as a child. Across the park is Citi field, meaningful to both, her and Joe as they are both big Mets fans. And, as a BIG Yankee fan, that’s all I’ll say about the Mets in this post..lol.
Our shoot started at the playground. Picture 4 adults strolling around a park where signs of “No adults are allowed without Children” frame the park. I tell you, we literally have the BEST clients –“game for everything” doesn’t even begin to justify their attitude. We had tons of fun at the playground, politely waiting our turn to “ride the train” and enjoy the “fun sized” playhouses. We continued our way into the park stopping by the Unisphere, the Hall of Science Center all with a few hops, jumps, skips and many, many twirling moments – I think is safe to say that Joe + Lauren are set for their wedding dance. JThree miles later, we ended at City field and around a few dark industrial looking alleys were again, Joe and Lauren were more than game to stop for a few shots. We had a great time with these two super laid back and fun folks. They made us laugh constantly and consistently inspired Elkin to reach for the camera to capture moments where they might’ve forgotten we existed…lol.
Thank you Lauren + Joe for such a fun time! We can’t wait to share in your special day!
