Nancy and Ralfi wanted to take in all of the best parts of Central Park — without any of the tourist hassles. As such, we began our engagement session at the top of the park, which is visited pretty much only by locals. We started around the lake, and then worked our way down to the Conservatory Garden.
While we managed to sneak in a few great photos, the security guards eventually sent us packing. I knew this would be the case, but it was such a beautiful day out that it was worth the risk. Reminder: it is easy to take photos in the Central Park Conservatory Garden, but you need to get a photo permit first. Take a look at this article I wrote about a Central Park Conservatory Garden wedding to find out everything you need to know in order to secure the proper paperwork. The Conservatory Garden and Gantry Plaza State Park are just about the only two places in NYC where you HAVE to have a photo permit.
Central Park is beautiful wherever you go, and we enjoyed the rest of the session taking photos along the pathways leading down to the Reservoir. Enjoy the images, and I’ll have more engagement sessions to share with you next week.
