Fall Couples Shoot in Central Park
When Celia, my friend and former co-worker, asked me to do their fall and holiday card photos this year, of course I had to say yes!! We decided to meet at the Bethesda Fountain early in the morning, and to my surprise, dogs are allowed to roam free and unleashed in the park before 9am, so there were dogs everywhere (you'll see them pop up in some photos).
October was unnaturally warm this year, so I was worried that we wouldn't see colorful leaves--especially since the park was pretty green when I shot with Milly two weeks prior, but we were all very pleasantly surprised! Granted, the park wasn't as colorful as it could potentially be, but at least leaves were starting to change color, and not everything was green.
Just look at the lighting in this picture!!
Then we went back and did a couple with the boathouse in the background.
The bridges/tunnels make for great photos in the park...and sometimes you even catch dogs in the back!! (Next to Jeff's head)
The next batch are my favorites, though. We found a spot withe lots of yellowing leaves, and they matched with Celia's scarf so well. I love using items in front of the subject to create a layered look, and these pictures came out perfectly!!
Check out Jeff's super animated eyebrows...this cracks me up
