Jurassic Park meets Central Park…
When Jenna and Christina decided to do their engagement session at the American Museum of Natural History, I thought it was a great idea. My mother used to take me there when I was a little boy, but I hadn’t been back there in ages. I was really excited about the photos and the chance to see the Museum again……and with Central Park right across the street, it only made sense for us to spend some time shooting there as well.
True story: We were looking for interesting backdrops for one of the ring shots, when Christina said, “Oooh, we should do one by the Paranthropus!”
Me: “The what???”
I wasn’t exactly sure what she was referring to, but I knew there were some pretty cool looking skulls there. Well, it turns out that her degree is in Archeology and she actually knew the scientific name of that specimen…..Wow! I’ve been around some smart people, but that pretty much takes the cake. Remind me to never challenge her to a game of Scrabble!
Two beautiful rings that look like they could be part of a museum exhibit.
Meet “Mr. Palanthropus” himself…
