Jen + Cam | NYC Engagement

Engagement Photos in Madison Square Park by Mary Dougherty

This love story is more epic than you think. That’s my take on it, but you can convince me otherwise. In NYC I photographed this engagement session for Jen and Cam, a couple planning a New York Wedding in 2020. They are getting married on the other side of the state, but the city is home and where it all began.

three perfect NYC photo locations

We started at Madison Square Park and moved from there to Eataly, capturing the Flatiron in between. Honestly those are three amazing spots to photograph in New York City in such a short distance.

Jen and Cam met in a scene that could easily be made into a movie. It was in a bar – the neighborhood one – where Cam was working and Jen was with a friend. She left to go on a date, and Jen and Cam talked, until he surprised her by asking for her number. However, it went no where…. until she came in again on a snowy night and the rest is history.

Cam works in animation and Jen was in magazines but left for the start up Glam Squad. They showed me around some of their favorite spots and we ended the shoot with dinner together!

I can’t get over the perfect setting of the park with these tables and lights. Yes, it feels like everyone is watching you when you take pictures. This moment is all yours to remember in a photograph.

Jen you look so gorgeous! Obviously Glam Squad was called in to get ready for the shoot, and her white dress with laser cut floral appliqué is from Anthropologie.

Is there anything more classic than running across NYC streets? While in Eataly at the rooftop restaurant Serrawe took advantage of the gorgeous floral installation… as did someone else who proposed!

custom proposal ring

Jen and Cam were engaged in Italy. The gold band she wears on the right hand is the ring he proposed with! He left the family ring back at home, a gorgeous diamond from his grandmother.

I love creating images that tell the story of a couple, and I think that these really do, I hope you agree. Reach out to start planning your own session and tell me about your story!
