My sister is Engaged!


What a weekend! My oldest sister Erika got engaged this Friday! Scott, her boyfriend, had my family come to NYC to surprise her after he popped the question in their apartment.  We were waiting for them in the lobby with champagne on hand to congratulate them! The original plan was that they were going to meet us at Lincoln Center, but it was down-pouring,  so we decided to go to the lobby of their building to celebrate there first, and then head over to Lincoln Center.



It was raining really hard, so I actually did not take these pictures, my very talented mother did! I stood with the umbrellas over her and was the photo editor for the weekend. All of these are edited in Lightroom. I purchased Lightroom two weeks ago, so I’m still getting the hang of things. I wanted to share with you guys the presets I have purchased. See below for the deets!


This is my ABSOULTE FAVORITE! I wanted to post it again because I used @frauke_hagen presets. I LOVE her photos so when I saw she was selling some of her presets I jumped on it!


On to Central park! We woke up at 6:30 am the morning following the engagement and got to the park for 7 in order to avoid the crowds.



For all of the Central Park photos, I used the @doyoutravel & @gypsealust presets I bought the Bali preset collection. I LOVE these as well. I think a good rule of thumb is to take notice of the accounts whose photos you admire on Instagram. and then you should look into buying their presets (if they are available.)



It was an incredible weekend filled with lots of laughs, love, and some tears. I very excited for my sister & Scott as they continue their journey together!





-Thanks for reading! Let me know if you guys have any recommended presets!
