Yvonne and Lawrence's Early Morning Engagement Shoot

When I talked to the lovely Yvonne and Lawrence about booking their engagement shoot, I suggested (as I often do) that we met early-ish to have more privacy and better light. Usually couples choose to interpret 'early' on a weekend to be 11 am :-), which is totally fine (it is much better to have a happy awake couple than the best lighting/ privacy conditions)... but these guys are real troopers and immediately replied with "how about sunset?".

The good stuff didn't stop there. Yvonne and Lawrence were amazing company: super sweet, funny and very cute with each other (morning crankiness factor = zero!). They picked a gorgeous location and brought cupcakes for a breakfast picnic! What a great way to start the day it turned out to be!

The shoot was at Gantry Plaza Park in Long Island City, since they had their first date and spent a lot of time together there in Long Island City (not too far from the park). The park has a beautiful view of Manhattan as well as some very cool areas. We spent a couple of hours walking around, enjoying the sun (first weekend of Spring), having apple juice* and cupcakes... and taking pictures!... Here are some of them!

Congratulations, Yvonne and Lawrence! All the best with your wedding planning and thank you for a very fun Saturday morning!

*Quote of the morning: "Juicy juice is goodness"
