UWS Riverside Park Engagement: Congratulations Carla and Ben!

Lush greenery, a lovely summer evening in Riverside Park, and a very sweet pup made for one wonderful engagement session for Carla and Ben.

Ben shares, “Carla and I met in spring 2014 because we both attended the same weekly game night. We love to play board games and card games with this great group of people. We continued seeing each other weekly, and grew to be close friends. Eventually the chemistry was too strong to ignore! Our first date was at the Cooper Hewitt Design Museum, and we’ve been pretty much inseparable since then. We’ve had a lot of great times exploring all the arts and culture that NYC has to offer. And we love to travel–since we started dating we’ve been to Iceland, Vancouver, and Italy, with trips to Morocco and New Zealand planned soon!”

Ben shares, “We’re getting married in Union Square next winter, so we wanted to be sure our engagement photos included plenty of greenery. We chose to have them taken near our home in Morningside Heights, in Riverside Park. It’s near and dear to our hearts and (after our first attempt got rained out) we couldn’t have asked for better weather. The sunset over the Hudson, the stone walls, and the lovely trees all provided a beautiful atmosphere.

Carla jokes that I only started dating her to spend more time with her dog, Bessie–while that is not exactly true, it’s not entirely false either! Bessie is such a sweet old girl. One reason (among many) that we were excited to have Jess as our photographer was her love of dogs, and we were so happy to include Bessie in our engagement shoot.

We are thrilled to have these photos that capture our everyday lives–in our non-wedding attire, spending time in the park with our dog–and we look forward to working with Jess again on our wedding day!”
