Manhattan Engagement Session | New York City Photographer | Matt + Kara

 Rainy Day Manhattan New York Engagement Session | New York City Public Library

I can't believe I'm saying this, but I first met Kara eight years ago. We became friends our freshman year at Virginia Tech in a little group of 4 girls who chose to make ridiculous crafts on Friday nights and stay up way too late laughing at absolutely nothing. She knew me before I met Nathan, and I knew her before she met Matt, her soon-to-be husband. In fact, when I visited New York City (click here to see that post!) last week, it was the first time I met him or had seen her in years!

When Kara saw that I was coming to the Big Apple she sent me a message asking for a coffee date...and it soon snowballed into an engagement session in the place she now calls home. Even though we woke up to a rainy day we made it work, stopping at everywhere from the New York Public Library to Rockefeller Center and ending inside Grand Central Station with people everywhere. This was the iconic New York City engagement session - crowded streets, rain coming down, wind everywhere, and a couple truly and deeply in love.

Matt and Kara - I'm so very excited for both of you! Your laughter lit up what could have been a dark and gloomy morning, and your love for each other is so very evident. Congratulations on all that is to come :)
