One of our three engagement session winners, Lily & Thad showed me around Prospect Park and served some serious face. They also indulged in my corny jokes & we talked about our favorite spots for wine/cocktails, our fav movies we’ve seen recently, and Ru Paul’s Drag Race.
They come here – Prospect Park – almost every morning to walk their dog, Phoebe (she was not here for this shoot but your presence was felt, Pheebs).
In their entry for our engagement session giveaway, Lily wrote something so sweet & simple; I could 100% feel the genuine love between her & Thad, and I wanted to be able to capture it for them. In Lily’s words:
“I think the greatest thing about being in love is simply having someone to share the little things with. My favorite thing that Thad and I do as a couple is lounge about on weekend mornings until our dog forces us to get outta bed and walk her in Prospect Park. Then we meander about the park for about an hour – rain, sunshine, snow, cold, hot – this has been our weekend routine and its my favorite part of the week.”
Thadeus wrote something as well, and well, you can read/absorb all the cuteness for yourself:
“For my fiancé & I, our wedding is the culmination and celebration of 6 years of love, friendship, determination and growth. We have been through so much together and survived a relationship across three continents and many time zones. Our wedding will allow our two families and groups of friends who have supported us through our journey to this moment to share in our magic moment.”
Without any further ado, here are some favs from our day together.
The wind was sadly working against us & Lily’s hair, so she decided to put it up. Thad was quick to hold her phone camera up for her so she could see what she was doing. :’)
Lily: “I don’t think…I’ve ever looked at you this much? But I love EVERY second of it!”
Lily & Thad, you were such a joy to shoot with this weekend, and I’m so thrilled for you both.
