Sophia and Paul’s Central Park engagement session perfectly captured the elegance of this stunning couple! We took romantic portraits of this soon to be bride and groom throughout Central Park’s picturesque landscape, and I am screaming at how gorgeous they came out!!
The Love Story
Sophia and Paul first connected through social media, in a seemingly “random” friend request that Sophia initiated. Paul accepted, and he then sent Sophia a few messages, eventually leading to a phone number exchange. Finally, after meeting in person, everything just clicked! On their first date, they ended up talking all night long and getting to know each other; they literally shut down the place! After that, Paul invited Sophia to watch an NY Islander’s game together, her favorite team. She was not expecting him to bring her to the stadium, to watch the game in person– talk about breaking the ice! After that, they continued on all types of adventures together, and we’re so happy to part of this next special chapter!
Surprise Proposal in Charleston, South Carolina
After four years of dating, Paul was ready to plan his next big surprise. The city of Charleston, South Carolina was a place that Sophia was fond of, having visited with her girlfriend in the past. After spending a year working from home, Sophia was so happy when her girlfriend, Christie, and her husband suggested a double date trip to Charleston! Assuming that this was a low-key birthday celebration trip, she was so excited to show the boys all the spots that her and Christie loved, especially picturesque King Street. Sophia had even told Christie she would love to have an engagement photoshoot there! Little did she know what Paul was planning…
On a stroll through Waterfront Park one night, Sophia was in the middle of taking pictures of Christie and her husband. As they made their way to the epic pineapple fountain in Waterfront Park, Sophia turned to see Paul down on one knee. He was proposing! She realized what was happening and quickly said yes! Sophia and Paul Facetimed with their friends and family to share the fantastic news and celebrated with dinner at her favorite restaurant. The next day, they took photos at King Street, and this quick getaway turned out to be an absolute dream come true!
Romantic Central Park Engagement
Sophia and Paul showed up to this Central Park engagement shoot looking like royalty! Sophia had her make up done, and looked incredible in her floor length gown. Paul was dressed to impress in a complete three piece suit! The skies were pure blue and sunny for us, and we made sure to take advantage of this as much as we could! We took bright, glowing portraits on the epic Bow Bridge, and finished up at the famous Bethesda Terrace.
