Make a getaway out of it by staying in one of their tents, enjoying the amenities, and visiting downtown Ithaca, a 5-minute drive.
Last weekend I was able to catch up with some old friends in Central Park to celebrate their engagement. Tim proposed to Emily in Central Park on New Year’s Eve and threw her a surprise party to follow (which I shared photographs from already). We met up in the same place to begin a whirlwind Saturday afternoon exploring the Park and taking photographs along the way to document the love these two have together.
I met Amber and Jordan separately but around the same time at college. Amber and I shared in Honors Seminar for two years, Jordan and I shared many classes having the same major. Jordan proposed to Amber in Italy (major props on that one) while on a winterim trip with our school and I could not wait to celebrate with them when they returned. It took awhile but as the sun finally began to shine again I met the couple at Piermont Pier and we shared stories, looked forward to the wedding, and captured the love that these two truly have for one another.
It’s rare that my new year’s plans are made two months in advanced, but when Tim messaged a group of Emily’s best girl friends asking us if we’d be around for new year’s for a surprise party for Emily, we quickly deduced that this was an engagement party. We nearly died when Emily announced three days beforehand that she believed she would be getting engaged on new year’s eve. Somehow we convinced her it wasn’t so…the day arrived and she was SURPRISED. She came home giddy to make a bunch of phone calls but we were already present. I loved photographing the night because Emily (and Tim) were BEAMING. It was such an awesome thing to be a part of. Click on the photos to view the larger versions.
