Sweet and Simple Manhattan Engagement Session • Kristina Staal Photography


We clearly love all things wedding, and adorable engagement sessions in NYC are right up there at the top of our list. Elise + Andrew's Manhattan engagement session is both quaint and personal, and quintessentially New York. From Battery Park to the cobblestone streets of downtown, these two enjoyed every moment of their time together with Kristina Staal Photography, and their love shines through in every image.

From Kristina: This couple, Elise & Andrew, are such a gorgeous couple inside and out. They both are laid back, always happy, and ready to have fun. For the engagement session, we went for a laid back feel, and wanted to incorporate the beauty of Manhattan into the shoot. On the day of the shoot, we lucked out with gorgeous weather, so we headed down to lower manhattan and explored the cobblestone streets, checked out the beautiful architecture, and eventually made our way over towards Battery Park, overlooking the Statue of Liberty. Both Andrew & Elise love wine, so it was only fitting that we incorporated the wine into their session. The DIY bouquet was made by me with flowers from Trader Joes, and Elise picked out the outfits for her and Andrew. This laid back styled shoot was so fun, and Andrew & Elise's love for one another shines through their images!
