Heather & Scott Engaged! || New York Public Library || Manhattan Engagement Photographer

I met Heather & Scott on a rainy Monday afternoon a few weeks ago at the Library Hotel to take some photographs at the place they got engaged. I had been emailing back and forth with Heather for months, and it was so nice to finally put a face to her words!  They brought so many good ideas to the shoot – locations, posing ideas – but were also incredibly open when I had my own vision for something. Basically… completely ideal clients. (They are an A Practical Wedding couple, so obviously they are awesome.)

After shooting at the hotel for a while, we braved the rain and headed to the New York Public Library on 5th Avenue. I was a little nervous – worried we’d get kicked out since they probably frown on photo shoots there. But we were very quiet and respectful, and nobody bothered us at all. I am so thrilled with the results of their photographs, and couldn’t have asked for a sweeter, more laid back couple!




  • I cannot believe you got away with taking pictures in the reading room! Naughty naughty! (but amazing. I am jealous)

  • I was kind of a nervous wreck, because I had this image of security making me delete all the photos I had taken and then banning me from the library forever. I used a long lens and we got in and out of there as quickly as we could.

  • Your libraries make me swoon! Great set, Katie Jane :)

  • LOVE the one of him kissing her cheek right before the handstand pictures! And the handstands, oh my!
