Kavita's vision for her summer engagement session in Manhattan with Priyanca Rao Photography was capturing the old world romance of cobblestoned NYC in a fun and flirty way, while portraying how happy she and Karim are together!
A stylish and urban summer New York City engagement session
Karim and I are reunited high school sweethearts. Following a 6-year hiatus we rekindled our relationship, after both growing as individuals (I'd like to think). While I pursued a career in medicine, Karim was expanding his horizons and working internationally. For me, the most exciting part of our relationship is the feeling that it is old and new at the same time. – Kavita
Kavita and I started dating as teenagers, and although our paths diverged for a short while along the way, our engagement really was a decade in the making. It only made sense to find a way to capture this moment in our lives for the decades ahead. Being my first photo shoot, my biggest worry was trying to appear natural on film while concealing the inevitable awkwardness of posing on the bustling streets of New York City. However, seeing fearless Priyanca, 7-months pregnant, climb rickety chairs and lie down on the street in the middle of traffic to take the perfect shot made the experience more fun than anything else! – Karim
