Today we are showcasing a dreamy New York engagement session between Tracy and Robert. As you may know, New York City has endless possibilities when it comes to a photoshoot, and this lovely couple decided to keep it classy and iconic. Exploring Central Park and the Louis Vuitton corporate building, Sophie of Sophie Kawalek Photography shot the beautiful images! Tracy and Robert showed off their love not only for each other, but also for the city that never sleeps during their session. Tracy shared with us a little about the love story between her and Robert that led to a forever fairy tale dream:
“Robert and I first met in 2013 when he tutored me on an MBA economics assignment prior to starting medical school. We quickly became good friends and stayed in touch even after my class was over. We became inseparable the following summer and started dating. For the next 4 years, Robert was a medical student at McGovern Medical School in Houston while I worked in the Oil & Gas industry while pursuing my MBA. On Match Day in late March 2017, it was revealed that Robert had matched to Cornell in Manhattan, New York. He proposed in late April and moved to NY to start residency in June- I moved at the beginning of August. Fast forward to a couple of months later… Robert’s schedule as a 1st year resident at New York Presbyterian has been hectic while I started working at the NY corporate office of Louis Vuitton. During a team lunch on the 14th floor, I was inspired by the beautiful city views from the terrace. The city view consisting of the trees in Central Park, the Empire State Building, and The Plaza Hotel was so iconic and dreamy. The terrace was also very private which was perfect for the shoot. We are loving our life as New Yorkers and can’t wait to tie the knot in Houston next May!”
Thank you so much, Tracy, for not only sharing your beautiful story but also these lovely photos!
