Liza and Christian’s Astoria, New York Engagement Session

Engagements

You guys, I am 100% done with editing this season’s weddings. Huzzah! Which means that I can finally begin to catch up on blogging. There are so many sessions (and weddings!) left to blog and I can’t wait to show you some of the amazing days we’ve been so lucky to be a part of.

Because these two are fresh on my mind, I thought I’d kick off my upcoming blogging streak (Ok, maybe it won’t be that frequent. After all, there is still much to get done) with Liza and Christian’s engagement session in Astoria, New York City. This particular session is just packed full of all my favorite things: gorgeous light, Brooklyn/Astoria, New York, a cat, foggy New York City skylines (this is totally a thing, btw), the fluffiest cat, rooftop decks and did I mention there is an adorable cat? Yeah, her name is birdie and she’s the cutest.

Liza and Christian wanted to do some photos in their home in Astoria and also wander out in search of some cool graffiti in the area. There are a few streets in Astoria that have walls covered in some really cool graffiti. The best part? New graffiti appears every once in a while in place of old graffiti so next time you go it could look totally different. For example, remember Ka-Ling and Joe’s engagement session in Astoria earlier this year? Some of the walls you’ll see on Liza and Christian’s post are the exact same ones but with different graffiti on it. Pretty rad.

Basically, this post has it all. So I’m just going to stop writing now and let you have a look.
