This was definitely one of the most interesting elopements I've ever done. Shot entirely in the pouring rain! Jackie and Aaron are from LA, California (Peep the LOVE LA street sign in one of these shots later) and their parents were flying in to NYC to witness their union. Although the forecast had rain at 100%, their parents were only going to be in town this weekend - so we knew it was going to happen- rain or shine! We met at the Brooklyn Promenade; the officiant all ready, and everyone had armed with umbrellas! I was able to capture their adorable elopement in the rain, surrounded by their family and friends and it was AWESOME! It was whimsical, romantic, fast paced and definitely the kind of day you'd remember!! Despite the weather, there was a gorgeous backdrop and a lot less people walking around the park (which was really helpful!!) Jackie and Aaron were all up for everything!! Their upbeat spirit and willingness to get amazing shots DEFINITELY made it all worth it!! I had so much fun with them and was so thankful that despite some unforeseen circumstances- they were still able to have fun and enjoy their day!!! Photographing in New York, you really never know what you’re going to get! I was super excited to blog this New York City elopement and hope you guys will enjoy it too!! #iLOVENY !!
I got another chance to photograph around Gowanus, Brooklyn and Soho with Nick and Kimberly. Nick loved the industrial and edgy look of their neighborhood and Kimberly liked the polished and chic look of Soho (where they work). So we were able to combine their personalities into their engagement session and hit up both areas! It was such a great time because they allowed me to be creative and free with them and we found some really amazing spaces to photograph at. It’s so awesome to be able to capture these photographs for them for the future!! It was also awesome because one of these shots was featured in the New York Times!! I am so thankful they chose me to be their new york city wedding photographer!! They will be getting married in California next year! Here are some of my favorite shots!
Anuja and John are SO adorable!! John is a man of never-ending information (which is totally impressive) and Anuja is a sweet and witty lady! I loved working with them, eating (and drinking) our way through Brooklyn - their neighborhood! We made pitstops at Luke's Lobster and Three's Brewing Company, found interesting and odd spaces and ended the session making SMORES on their brooklyn rooftop that had a view of New York City!! *___* It was a really a fun shoot and I'm so thankful for couples that allow me to be creative, energetic and spontaneous! Another great day as a new york city wedding photographer! Here are some of my favorite shots:
Had an amazing time photographing with these two. With Brandon's lightheartedness and Christina's edginess, the two melded together to create really adorable moments. We started at the Bushwick Collective in Brooklyn, New York City, since they wanted to encapsulate a more industrial and edgy feel to represent their personalities.
Afterwards we ended up at the East River Park for a sunset and a softer look. It's not easy being models in an engagement session, but I was really happy to see such amazing shots come to fruition with them. They are going to be getting married at Dumbo Loft, an amazing venue in Brooklyn- I can’t wait for their urban chic New York City Wedding in a few months!
PS: Brandon used to be a child model in his early years- which made things much easier for me, haha!
