Stylish Little Italy Engagement | Stephanie and Omar

By, November 01, 2017

Stephanie and Omar met at a college beach party one summer when they were both designated drivers for friends. Omar says he fell in love with Stephanie’s calm, easy-going spirit and ability to make anyone feel at home. The two now live in Little Italy, which is where they requested to do their fun, stylish engagement session. The couple booked a 2-hour session, which enabled us to capture the neighborhood during both day and night conditions. 

After talking with Stephanie and Omar about their favorite spots, we decided to photograph at the Waterfront Park, Broadway Pier and Little Italy. This enabled the couple to stay close to home, and be photographed in locations with personal significance. It also created a nice balance of cityscapes and nature views.

Here is a selection of our favorite images from this fun and stylish engagement session in Little Italy. Enjoy :)
