Lidia is the sister of my amazing friend, Diana, and when I heard they were in New York City for just a couple days, I jumped at the chance to capture a quick mini session with them & baby, who is due in March! We wandered near their hotel on the Upper East Side and found a few quaint streets. I love that it still looks like fall in the city! (At least for this Minnesota girl!)

When Nadyia and I were discussing possibilities for her and Abhik’s fall engagement session, we starting brainstorming activities the couple enjoys together…. Nadyia wanted to incorporate props, or just a little something to make their session extra special, but wasn’t sure what. Props have been a huge trend lately, but I think it only makes sense if it really represents the couple! Nadyia casually mentioned that her and Abhik really enjoy playing tennis together, but didn’t like it as an idea for actual engagement photos. I, however, was instantly inspired! The starting score of love-love in tennis is so fitting for an engagement session!
Meet Nadyia & Abhik. They are as sweet as they are gorgeous! I ‘met’ Nadyia online years ago, so I was surprised and flattered when she remembered me and emailed to let me know that she was engaged! We finally met in person, and N&A decided to hire me as their photographer! I can’t wait to shoot their multi-day Hindu/Indian wedding next summer. It’s going to be amazing!
Nadyia also made the wise decision of having a hair and makeup artist glam her up for her engagement session. Of course, Nadyia is naturally beautiful, but why not opt for a little extra pampering for your photos? Hana of Unveiled Styling and Events dolled Nadyia up with soft curls and sultry eyes with dramatic lashes!
Stayed tuned for part 2 of Nadyia and Abhik’s session, which involved a unique, surprise location, incorporating one of the couple’s favorite activities! It’s coming next week and you’re going to “LOVE” it!
