West Village Engagement Photographer | Megan + Tyler

It was May 3.5 years ago that a girl from Rye & Garden State guy were first introduced during a getaway with mutual friends . After returning to NYC, Megan messaged him right away on Facebook (against warnings that dating within the friend circle could be social suicide). As fortune would have it, Tyler messaged her back right away with a first date soon to follow. Jump ahead to a balmy 2014 New Year's Eve in Bermuda (a very special 2nd home for them both), beers in hand they headed down to the beach. What began as a casual excursion quickly evolved into Tyler on one knee venturing "I have a question..." to which she instantly exclaimed "I do!". It was then that she noted the thoughtfulness behind the ring that truly sealed the deal - donning sapphires, it was the perfect homage to her grandmother's ring she had always admired.

Exploring a day-in-the life with these two was nothing short of a good time. Getting lost along the cobblestone side streets of their West Village neighborhood, we made stops at brownstone stoops, the oasis gardens at St. Luke in the Fields, and local favourite The Little Owl. Next up, a detour to pick up their lovable 1.5 year old rescue pup, Hatch, before heading over to Hudson River Park for a walk along the river filled with sailboats, unexpected encounters with friends, and the late autumn afternoon sun warm against their backs.
