Central Park Engagement Photos Require Early Morning Wake Up Calls

Annie and Denis woke up at the crack of dawn with me for their Central Park engagement photos, and it was worth every minute of sleep we lost that morning! Central Park is always busy, though it is so large there are certainly little pockets of quiet here and there. However, waking up early to beat the crowds is the best way to make sure you have access to some of the more well known photo spots in Central Park. I have never seen the Central Park Mall (above) this empty other than at sunrise. Even then – there are a few New Yorkers here and there who are early risers. Mostly, we’ll have the park to ourselves.

Expect the Unexpected in NYC

Nothing like a change of plans when you’ve woken up before the sun. When we arrived to our meeting place in Central Park, we discovered that it was closed off for an event set up. This was a total bummer since we had planned the shoot around this location. However, I considered this my daily reminder to expect the unexpected when photographing in NYC. I’ve learned to pivot and adapt quickly as things can change in the blink of an eye!

Pivoting to Plan B

Although we planned to be at the Bethesda Fountain, it was closed off for an event benefiting the park (we let it slide). A hop, skip, and a jump to to our left was another fountain. Not our original plan, but I do believe it was meant to be.
