Central Park Engagements | Cody + Gina

CentralPark.Boathouse.Engagements-13

Photographing an engaged couple is one of my favorite things.  There's something so special about this specific season in a couples' journey.  The excitement, anticipation of what is to come, and this level of pure giddiness.  It's contagious!

Cody and Gina have a special place in my heart for a few reasons.  Cody is one of my brother's best friends, and I have heard amazing things about him and Gina for years but have yet to meet them.  And anyone my brother loves I know I'll love (because my brother is an amazing man!)

So when Gina reached out to me to photographer her engagements while they were in NYC this summer I got super excited.  Being with them just felt like being with a piece of home.  Thanks y'all for running around Manhattan with me on a hot, muggy, summer evening; it was a blessing!

XO,

Kat

SoHo Proposal | Andy + Katya

BoweryHotel.SohoEngagements.KatHarris-15

When Andy reached out to me to photograph his proposal to Katya on their two-year anniversary I knew it would be a wonderful day.  With each and every detail Andy was prepared, thoughtful, and intentional with how he wanted to show Katya his love for her.  From surprising her with a suite at The Bowery Hotel, to hair + make-up done by FaceTime Beauty, to champagne, to leading her to their very first date spot he thought of everything.  And at just the right moment, at just the right time, he got down on one knee and asked her to be his wife.

The moment was quiet, peaceful, intentional; it was an incredible space to be in.

It's moments like these that remind me why I do what I do.  To get to capture such milestone moments for people is such a gift, and Andy + Katya I'm profoundly grateful that you let me in on this special special day!

Congratulations on your engagement + I cannot wait to hear all about the wedding!

XO,

Kat

Bruno + Yuri | Times Square Lifestyle Session

Bruno and Yuri met over 8 years ago when they were set up on a blind date.  Yuri is a designer, and Bruno is on the police force in San Paolo Brasil.  Something just clicked on that first date, and they have been together ever since. Here’s the fun part:  these two just got married in Brasil and are on an epic honeymoon journey starting here in New York City, then they’re off to Tokyo, and finally Rome before heading home!  In each city they’re getting their pictures done to capture their honeymoon in all of its different stages.   I was honored that I got to capture them here in The Big Apple.

Lucky for them we had their session the day before Polar Vortex Parte dos visited Manhattan.  We started at the rooftop of their eclectic hotel Pod 39, headed to Grand Central, had adventures on the subway, literally ran through Times Square, and played at Rockafeller Plaza.  It was a photography session of epic proportions, and what I loved about our time is how genuine and grounded they both are.  They have such security in their love; it was beautiful to witness.

Yuri + Bruno enjoy your travels, and thanks so much for allowing me to be apart of your journey!
