I met up with Sabrina and Jeff this afternoon in Central Park for their engagement session. They chose this location because this is where Jeff proposed to Sabrina. Originally Jeff was going to pop the question while they were on a long carriage ride through the park, but apparently the driver wouldn’t shut up long enough for Jeff to do it. Note to Central Park carriage drivers: shut yer stinkin’ traps and leave couples alone! As soon as I met Sabrina and Jeff at the bandshell, I noticed a skateboarder tooling around. I immediately knew what I wanted to do. Still being somewhat involved in skateboarding, I knew this guy was good enough to pull off what I wanted to do. Luckily Sabrina and Jeff were, excuse the pun, on board with my idea too! I have to thank Christoph, the skateboarder, who was kind enough to ollie over Sabrina and Jeff several times for us. I hope you enjoy your visit to the states! Later in the session, Sabrina, Jeff and I had fun chasing after the sun as it was slowly disappearing behind a tall building. We probably looked pretty silly running around the park chasing after it, but then again, it is Central Park, and I’m almost certain MUCH more bizarre things have been witnessed! I had a blast today guys, and I can’t wait to photograph your wedding next year!
Here is Christoph, who was visiting from Germany, ollieing in front of Sabrina and Jeff.
I’ve always wanted to do a shot like this! As an added bonus, it says “Lovers” right between Sabrina and Jeff, it was just meant to be!
Their expressions are genuine, the proposal however, is just a re-enactment.
Continuing with my yummy sun flare kick!
Love this one!
Waiting for there to be no people in this shot took some patience. Thanks guys!
