NYC Engagement Session: Amanda + Grady

It was an August evening in the Hamptons and they were hanging out with mutual friends.  And once introduced, their conversation flowed late into the evening and again the next day.  Their connection was instant, and Grady asked if he could take Amanda out for a date once they were back in the city.  But Amanda didn't expect to hear from him so soon - he called her up the day after they returned and asked her out for that evening.  Without hesitation she accepted.  He told her he was headed out for a run first, and she said she was going to do the same, but instead she ran out for a manicure.  She wanted to look her best for this handsome gentleman she had already fallen for.

In a whirlwind romance, they had already met each other's parents within 5 months of meeting each other.  And though they quickly fell for each other, they dated for about two and a half years before getting engaged.  Grady chose the perfect spot in Gramercy Park.  They had always talked about staying in a nice hotel in the city, and Gramercy Park Hotel was near where Amanda used to live, so the area was already special to her.  Grady found the perfect bench in this private park to propose, and turning to her he said, "I have something important I want to ask you."  Amanda was in tears before he could even pop the question.

And so we started Amanda and Grady's engagement session in Gramercy Park.  At the very bench where Grady proposed.  The park was quiet and beautiful, and the light was divine...

About half way through our session, we stopped by Amanda and Grady's beautiful apartment building and took more photos in their courtyard before they changed into something a little more casual...

In true New York style, Amanda hails us a cab to head down to Tribeca.  These two look like they belong in a movie!

And we ended our session down at the Piers, with beautiful light and an amazing skyline...

Amanda and Grady, I had SUCH and amazing time with you both in NYC!!  Thank you for having me there to document your love for each other in the place you call home (and for the delicious dinner at the end of our evening)!  SO excited for your wedding in September!!  xo...
