Engagement - chinatown, central park & brooklyn bridge park. nyc couple melvin & melissa. October 2021.
Hello friends of Mils Mendez Photography LLC,
I come to you with another blog. This one is so special because it’s an honor to capture the love of my oldest child with his fiancé, Melissa. They have been together for more than thirteen years and are finally tying the knot. I am beyond ecstatic!
Here we go…a beautiful day, colorful street, towering buildings, and the buzz of city life — that’s what we had in store for us throughout Melissa and Mando’s vibrant engagement session last month. We hit the bustling streets of New York City and I am so excited that we were able to use a rainbow street in Chinatown, as a backdrop, along with the arches at Central Park and Lower Manhattan’s cityscape.
Five words that describes this couples’ relationship is beautiful, special, unique, compromising, and diverse. “The photoshoot was like those words and more. It was a perfect day to enjoy time together in the city that we love. Mils Mendez Photography LLLC, Nailed it”, said Melissa.
These two were full of energy, and I love that Melissa wore an elegant yellow dress with blue high-heal pumps and Melvin wore a gray suit with a matching bow tie as the dressy outfit. For a more casual look, she wore a baby blue sleeveless dress and he wore a light blue jacket with beige denims. It was the perfect complement to the colorful, electric city background we were working with throughout the shoot. I love all the photos from this session. If I had to choose an image as my absolute favorite from the day, it would be tough. I will choose the second one followed by the night photo on the rocks with the cityscape . Just look at those expressions...gorgeous! These two are going to have so much fun on their wedding day and I’ll be right along them. I can’t wait!
