Central Park Conservatory Garden Engagement | Kira & Omari
It was the second night of their trip to Turks & Caicos to celebrate Omari's birthday in mid October. Omari told Kira he had made dinner reservations at 7:30pm, but that was a straight up lie. Their reservations were for much later, but Kira got all dolled up and was ready to go right on time (or so she says!). Once they were both ready for dinner they decided to enjoy some cocktails in their hotel room before heading out. They sat down on their couch next to one another, with not a care in the world and not a place in the world they would rather be then right there. Omari told Kira he had written a poem for her to thank you for planning such an awesome trip for his birthday. That's right, he writes poetry and can cook a killer chicken parm and she plans amazing trips for them to go on. I know. They both totally hit the jackpot! :) Omari began reading what he wrote but about three lines in she quickly realized it was not a thank you poem! He then got on one knee and proposed to the love of his life! On cloud nine, the two headed out for an amazing celebratory dinner, and wouldn't you know their table had menus with their names on them and had one of Kira's favorite lobster dishes made just for her. So incredibly sweet!
Every time I photograph a couple, for me it's more then just posing, good light, and great backgrounds. Although these are important, what's super important to me is capturing the couple's chemistry and their beauty of their love. The candid in between moments. And what an amazing time I had doing just that during Omari and Kira's NYC engagement session at the beautiful Central Park Conservatory Garden... The beautiful garden where Omari's parents wed years ago! So excited for their wedding this spring!
