Engagement : Lauren + Joe @ Flushing Meadows Park Queens, NY

Hello Friends!

 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 four adults strolling around a park framed with signs reading “No adults are allowed without Children” . 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 and the Hall of Science Center all with a few hops, jumps, skips and many, many twirls– I think it’s safe to say that Joe + Lauren are set for their wedding dance ;-).  Three miles later, we arrived at Citi 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!

Its a wrap my friends!~

[…] think a big part of that is because Lauren and Joe are simply fun, fun people! (Don’t believe me? See for yoursef!) as are their families and friends.   They are the type of people who make your job as a […]
