Franklin Square Park, Syracuse NY
I met Amanda and Brian on a quiet, sunlit evening at Franklin Square Park in Syracuse NY for their engagement pictures. We had originally met via Facetime to chat about their wedding where they told me all about their plans for a romantic forest wedding. I was all in once they told me that! I probably sound like a broken record at this point but truly one of my favorite parts of the evening was getting to know Amanda and Brian better, finding out what they do for work, how they met, how Brian proposed and all sorts of fun things like that!
And I mean, if you can’t see already how much these two enjoy being together and laughing together then just take a look at the pictures below. The expression on Amanda’s face on the right is adorable!
Brian and Amanda wanted more of an urban feel to their engagement pictures and so we chose Franklin Square Park in Syracuse NY. I love the challenge of using all sorts of locations at the park and different angles and make sure their gallery has a good amount of variety and interest!
I was actually super impressed when Brian asked me if I was shooting with a “Nifty 50”! Kudos to him for knowing what lens I was shooting with! He told me that he’s owned a Nikon camera in the past but now has a Sony and enjoys doing some photography here and there!
I love this ring!
Ok Amanda, your amazing expressions are almost more than I can handle! Bring your adorable self to your wedding and BAM, we’ll get amazing pictures! I can’t even wait!
After we spent some time doing their engagement pictures at Franklin Square Park in Syracuse, we wandered down to Syracuse’s Creekwalk to see what other cool locations we could find to shoot! Every time I’m at the Creekwalk, I’m so in love with these stones and the way the vines grow on them. I knew we had to do a few of their engagement pictures here!
Annndd… Amanda’s cute shoes! Had to capture them!
Those brown eyes!
These two actually drove all the way from Rochester to Syracuse for their engagement pictures at Franklin Square Park! They mentioned that they wanted to make it easier for me and that it was a nice excuse to come see their family in Syracuse (and to go out on the boat with them!). Seriously guys… you’re awesome.
Amanda mentioned that her colors will be green and some other pretty neutral tones so I wanted to make sure that was reflected in their ring shot!
I am so looking forward to May of next year when Amanda and Brian will be getting married! Thank you for such a fun evening guys!
