Gramercy Park Hotel Engagement: Asha & Matthew

Happy Tuesday you guys! We have something EXTRA special for you today! Not only is it an engagement shoot unlike ANY other shoot we’ve ever done, but we also got to shoot both INSIDE the Gramercy Park Hotel as well as IN Gramercy Park itself!! Crazy! For any of you familiar with NYC lore, the Gramercy Park is the only locked park in the whole City and you have to have a key to get in! How cool/crazy is that?? And these keys are NO joke either, they are passed down from generation to generation and grandfathered into properties when you buy them in the neighborhood…it’s one of the most coveted things you can have in New York! And we had never even set foot into the park….until Asha & Matthew’s engagement shoot!

These guys knew that they wanted to do something totally different for their engagement photos! They are both so hip & stylish, and they wanted to do something really edgy, fun, and outside the box. So we started the shoot in one of their favorite hotels with robes & room service, like what a cozy Sunday might be like there for them! After that, they put on one of their signature stylish outfits (just wait til you see Matthew’s blue suit & Asha’s jewelry!!) and we went to shoot around the neighborhood! Well that’s when magic happened and a very kind not-to-be-named secret stranger not only snuck us into the park, but looked the other way while we took a few photos (apparently cameras are big no-no there too!) We were all just going crazy the whole time of how cool it was to be there…but I’m not surprised at all, these two are just the kind of amazing people where magic follows them everywhere!!

After our shoot we went back to the Gramercy Park Hotel to hang out some more, sip some champagne, and talk all about their BIG day at the St. Regis in March (which by the way has a TIFFANY themed suite & a Dior one as well….I’m going to be in HEAVEN!!) And then Asha, who works for one of the leading perfume houses in the country, surprised me by with a perfume she had custom picked out just for me!! See, what did I tell you…magic!! Asha & Matthew, we had the BEST time with you guys & now we can’t WAIT for the big day! Here are just a couple :) of our favorites from this amazing day!

So much love!
J&M
