From the moment I opened my house door and I saw Erin and Erik I though “WOW!!!” What a gorgeous couple. She has the most beautiful eyes and after photographing them for almost two hours I still can’t tell if they are green or blue or gray or purple… but Wow eyes for sure!
Erin and Erik just got engaged on October 16th in the Sinatra Park on the Hudson overlooking NYC, now can we say ROMANTIC? They have been living on separate cities – him in NYC and her here in South FL – and the day of our engagement session Erin told me that it was her last day at work because she is moving to New York to be with him… at that moment he proudly said “We can’t stay without each other anymore” Ahhh… That is S-W-E-E-T! at that moment I knew, these are two love birds!!! I LOVE IT.
There is some special glow in couples that just got engaged, it’s like they radiate love all over the place. The day of our session they came directly from the airport where Erin was picking him up after not seeing each other for 5 days… Oh Boy! they were totally all over each other, it was perfect! So I decided from this moment I’m going to ask my couples to not see each other for at least 3 days before their session, you’ll see how they react! It was awesome. Of course, the fact that she looks like a Victoria’s Secret model and he seems like came out of a GQ magazine helps a little but it’s really their love and their expressions and emotions that make these pictures what they are… so real! We had a great time shooting and just walking the streets and alleyways around Las Olas Boulevard in Fort Lauderdale, I hope you like them as much as I do!
With Love, LARA
