This wintery NYC engagement session is a stark contrast to where Betty & Nelson will be saying their I do’s…. which will be under the warm sun of Mexico’s Mayan Riviera. Both Betty & Nelson are born and raised New Yorkers. During their planning process, they decided on a whim to forego the traditional Chinese ceremony and to truly do something for themselves…so Mexico was the logical place to tie the knot as they have been there before and loved it. Following the weekend of fun, a more traditional Chinese Banquet will be thrown back in New York.
I can’t wait for this wedding to happen and to be a part of all the fun. During the engagement shoot, Betty kept stealing my breath away from her natural beauty. I can imagine how much more beautiful Betty will be on her wedding day. As for Nelson, it was like hanging out with an old friend from college…speaking of which…he did warn me of his “Frat Boys”and how they really like to party. All I have to say is bring it and let the fun begin!
During the shoot, Betty spotted this beautiful dog walking by with his owner. From seeing her excitement on her face over the beautiful ol’ pup, I of course, stopped the owner to see if we could borrow his dog for the shoot. He so kindly obliged and it was awesome!
When Nelson initially proposed to Betty, he had written her a poem. So a copy of that poem tied up in a pretty red satin ribbon was incorporated into the shoot.
