Some serious engagement heart eyes over here. 😍
Sarah + Gio met in a fairy tale sort of way while in their line of work (they are both incredible dancers for the renowned New York City Ballet). They approached their session together with a sense of grace and elegance, humor and playfulness, and the most beautiful sense of overwhelming joy for one another that spilled over in to every frame I was able to capture. I felt like with this session, I was able to step back and really focus a lot on the essence of their relationship. They took a little direction and absolutely ran away with it. I remember, at one point, standing there and thinking to myself, "wow!", because I was literally just standing there, watching a genuine connection unfold and taking it all in from a totally different perspective. Their session was really eye-opening for me and taught me so much about fostering an environment where my couples can fall in love all over again! <3
