Our Engagement Photos - Pt1 Central Park

Hi Friends, HAPPY ALMOST NEW YEAR! Ah and finally I have our engagement photos to share with you. Well I've had them for awhile but I wanted to put them together here on a blog post. Griffin did such an amazing job and I cannot believe how special these turned out. Thank you again for such a fun memory. I'm working on a few upcoming posts so you'll start to see them all trickle out hence the Part1 lol  but this is one of my favorite groups. Lol we had a few different looks, but LOVED how these romantic Central Park shots were captured. Gossip Girl inspired - Me? No way ;) xoxo

So although our wedding will be in Texas, I still wanted to add in my city vibes to the planning process. Chayson and I share SO many memories here in New York. It's funny to think that he probably knows the city just as well as I do - We had a lot of back and forth between TX and NY the last couple of years.

In November we planned an extended weekend after a market trip and thank goodness we chose that 11/11 weekend. A week from the day we shot the huge blizzard storm came (bye Fall)! Central Park in the Fall is an absolute dream and I wanted to capture the city at its best. We did our photos early in the morning 7:30 ish on a Friday and Saturday. It helped to break up the days and looks, I wanted to do a couple of casual and dressy styles. We made the trip so I wanted to really take advantage of the time and scenery we had to work with. I know we will have the photos forever and we can use them at the wedding and for save the dates (coming soon). Y'all I will say, it was FREEZING outside - but thankfully no cold sniffles and we had a really fun time together. It was funny at first trying to take pictures and pose around, Griffin was great making it fun and I had a few poses saved on my Pinterest board to help out with all the engagement shot ideas. Also I have to say Chayson did such a great job putting all of his outfits together. BOY HAS STYLE <3

If you are taking pics somewhere away from home, it was nice starting early in the am and then we had the rest of the day to explore. During our weekend stay we did a little Resale retail shopping, caught up with friends, and tried a few new restaurants on our list.
Tiny's and the Bar Upstairs - So cute for a date night and the steak tartar was amazing!
I love that each spot we shot all have fun times tied between us. Chayson and I have done just about every touristy to do in New York. Plenty a many of morning runs, picnics, laying out, and summer market exploring have happened between Central Park, the Brooklyn Bridge, and Dumbo. Special spots in one of my favorite cities with my favorite person <3 
Also I had the most amazing find at Gordmans - I found gorgeous BHLDN dresses at such a great price. You better believe I snagged as many as I could ;) LOVE this pretty grey style - the beading is gorgeous. Similar styles below.
