Central Park Engagement Photos on the Lake | Joe & Risa

Joe & Risa’s Central Park Engagement photos were taken on The Lake at Central Park. The Lake is located right next to Bethesda Fountain and the Loeb Boathouse—in the warmer months, you can rent a boat for around $20 an hour and paddle anywhere you want on the lake!

Capturing Joe and Risa’s session was so much different than my usual sessions, which made it a blast! I started in their boat taking a few close up images. Afterward, I rented a second boat to follow them around on the lake. It’s not easy paddling and taking photographs at the same time!

The Lake at Central Park is one of my favorite locations to take romantic photos in New York City. This incredible session was straight out of a fairytale!

After taking a second boat out for a few pictures, I jumped to shore and followed them around the path surrounding the lake.
