Amy & Jon’s Engagement Portraits at Central Park

Amy & Jon had attended a wedding I shot last summer– Anne and Bret for those of you keeping track– and they got in touch about having me shoot their wedding this fall.  I’m so glad they did– these two were a delight to work with.  Jon is hilarious and Amy is just a doll to shoot.  And.  Astonishingly…  they brought a full picnic to the park, complete with my favorite cheese in the world (Manchego, hint hint), a fresh bagette, sparking cider, grapes, and fancy CUPCAKES!   They even brought one for me, so thoughtful!  Normally I don’t bother asking people to think of or bring any props for e’shoots… why?  Well, because generally we’re walking around and any given prop is not going to be shot for more than one or two locations (the balloons aren’t engaged, YOU are) and then you’ve got to either trash it or stash it in what is usually an already cumbersome consolidated bag of both your necessary-to-carry-when-out belongings which we’re picking up and putting down each time I say “ooh over there!”  But unbeknownst to me Amy and Jon had this whole picnic AND the blanket it was laid out on in one little bag somehow, plates, wine glasses and all– it was such fun twist in the shoot and we found the perfect location for them to lay out their spread.  If you scroll down to the end you’ll see some picnic favorites (note Jon and Amy are excellent at catching grapes with their mouths) in addition to the other fun shots we got on that beautiful day.   Look for pics from their wedding come fall ’11!

As you can probably guess, he totally caught that grape in his mouth.  Very skilled, this couple!

I knew you were good Sarah but these are true art. You really captured Amy and Jon’s love for each other. From a very proud Mom. I was bursting to show my friends because the pictures are so lovely. I’m so glad they found you. Mama Snyder

Thanks Sarah! I love the moments you captured of Jon cracking open the cider and the grape action shot! You are the perfect blend of artistry and playfulness.
