Here is what photographer Leaha had this to say of the couple's shoot:
Sweet. Classic. It was the most gorgeous day in Central Park and we were so excited to meet this adorable couple for the first time. They came bouncing down the stairs at Bethesda Park with the biggest smiles. Jon is a full time police officer and Daniella is a school teacher. Both serving their community- I love that! I am so glad they found us! We had the best day in the park with the sun shining and people bustling about. We found it funny that people were stopping to stay out of the way of our photos. At first I was shocked by it, but then I remembered that this is a huge tourist attraction and not a lot of New Yorkers hang out there. The happy couple embraced random people and skaters in their photos. It is the quintessential New York vibe! My favorite part of this session was running up on a Vintage Taxi Cab. I immediately wanted to shoot with it. I took a look around and was like..”GO”. I totally forgot I was with a police officer! HA! We all decided it must be there just for show. Then when I glanced in the backseat I saw a brides wedding shoes! EEK- they were down the way taking photos!! So we took photos really quickly and went along our way! What a lucky find!
We are so excited for these two. Seriously the sweetest couple. We are so glad you are in our lives and can’t wait to see you get married!
