Spring in Central Park is one of my favorite time of the year. With variety of cherry and magnolia trees is full bloom, its quite a pleasant sight. Aarushi and Ryan live in Washington DC and are getting married in New Jersey this June. I loved getting to meet them in person and explore spring in Central Park together with them. Literally counting days for their Indian-American wedding now. I already know its going to be epic. :)
“From Sulove to Barisha: To the girl of my dreams, you have come to my life and blessed me tremendously. Showing me how to care, how to love, how to be a better partner. I thank you for all of this. We spend so many of our fun moments together; traveling, eating, being with each other’s families. I am so lucky to have found you. You make me happy every day and thats all I set out to do with you as well. You’re my best friend and I can’t imagine going on in life without you by my side. i want to spend the rest of my life with you.”

It was love at first sight. Conrad noticed Juliana in her PJs one evening at a supposed startup incubator. She was packing up her things to move to San Francisco. To draw her attention, he offered not only to help her pack but also asked her advice on the project he was working on. Juliana in her pure innocence drew charts on a white board to make him realize the errors of his ways. Conrad fell in love!
They remained close friends for many years following that. When Juliana finally moved to New York City, Conrad was ecstatic to ask her out on a date. They got engaged 4 months later and are now planning a beautiful wedding in New York City this September.
I have done many engagement sessions in Central Park, yet I can never get enough. I love exploring the park and showcasing its beauty with a different eye each time. Juliana and Conrad are beautiful inside and out, their love for each other doesn't just reflect in the relationship they share, but also brings a smile in the faces of everyone around them. I had a wonderful time documenting their love in the foggy summer morning and I can't wait to be part of their big day later this year.
