Spring has FINALLY sprung here in New York, and just in time for the third session in Jeanne and Alex’s year of engagement. You can see their pictures from the fall here and winter here! The next few months until their wedding July are absolutely going to fly, but the wedding somehow seems closer now that it’s finally shorts weather. We actually shot in two locations for this one: down in the meat-packing district in the city and up here in the ‘burbs where the blossoming trees and blooming flowers are really breath-taking at the moment. Jeanne and Alex are New Yorkers through and through, so I was glad we got to shoot in the city. Plus the new park on the High Line is a veritable photo-friendly gold mine of cool places to shoot. (Thank you, random small child, for scaring the pigeon right into my frame. No, really. Thank you. :) I think we were colder last Thursday than we were for the winter session. Still, I think the shots with the umbrella and taxi cabs. That said, the long, cold slow start to Spring really captures what the past few weeks have been like in this year of engagement, which is at the heart of what a year-long project like this is all about. So… good!

This is the second session in Jeanne and Alex’s year of engagement! You might remember the blog entry fromtheir autumn installment. Instead of carving pumpkins and walking through an apple orchard, we went sledding! Jeanne and Alex get a huge kick out of some of the over-the-top Christmas decorations their neighbors put up, so we had to stop for a shots, even though it was broad daylight. Jeanne assured me that the decorations wouldn’t disappoint, even if they weren’t lit up, but she had one request. We had to get a shot in front of the giant Nutcracker that kind of looks like its vomiting its own hair. So we did! Alrighty then! Enjoy. :)

On Sunday, I had a great engagement session with Jeanne and Alex. This was our first of four, actually, as we’re going to do “a year of engagement,” one session every season, between now and their wedding in 2011.

They’ve opted for the reception slideshow option, so the four shoots are going to give us a lot of great shots for that. I’m particularly proud of my Frankenstein pumpkin. It’s a little harder to make out the Bride of Frankenstein (she’s in profile). Since I’m not going to be here this year for Halloween, which is my favorite holiday, this was so much fun for me.

I particularly like this first one. They’re K-I-S-S-I-N-G! In a tree! Get it? Get it? 😉 Thanks, guys! I can’t wait until it snows!
