Katie & Amarveer wanted to do their engagement photos at the High Line in Chelsea, New York City. They wanted the rich urban vibes of the High Line and get some cool New York City street views as well. After those classic shots, they had a few of their best friends meet them at Washington Square Park and recreate some classic “Friends” NYC poses! (I figured it was perfect timing to blog this during the FRIENDS 25th anniversary year!!!) We took a little dip at the Washington Square Park water fountain (which yes, diehard fans, that’s not exactly where they filmed the opening of Friends BUT it SHOULD have been! LOL) and dancing with some NYC pigeons. O_O! It was a lot of fun working with them and their awesome group of friends and this was a engagement session/friend session to remember!
Sally and Chris got ready at the gorgeous Greenwich Hotel in New York City and had their ceremony and reception with close friends at Grand Banks; an AMAZING boat-restaurant on the 25th pier! I was totally blown away at the views!! After exchanging their vows, everyone enjoyed Murray Cheese plates, oysters and cocktails and celebrated with the couple on the boat. With the sun setting behind them, an amazing view of downtown manhattan in front of them, the amazing summer breezy pier weather- nothing could have topped this. It was one of the most unique weddings I've ever photographed!!! Definitely continually stapling why I love being a New York City wedding photographer! Here are some of my favorite images of the day!!

I always love a couple that's willing to eat delicious food during their New York City Engagement Photo sessions. Lindsey and Joe were one such couple that wanted to enjoy the delicacies of their neighborhood in Chelsea, New York City. Nearby their apartment is the world famous Chelsea Market, so we causally ate some beef noodle soup, tacos and donuts! We had Los Tacos, Doughnuttery and Fresh Noodles. I actually photographed their New York City wedding at Current, on Chelsea Piers and you can check out those shots here: Check it out here! Lindsey and Joe are such beautiful people and really encapsulated New York City as their hometown.
This engagement session was awesome! I love couples that enjoy exploring and allowing me to find the "out of the ordinary" places to get cool shots. Mary Beth took us up to her company's New York City rooftop so we could get some awesome views of New York City. They also have a beautiful black shiba ina puppy named JIRO!!!! Check him out on insta @jiro_dreams_of_snacks! We then walked around Chelsea, New York, getting street shots and cool spaces to use as backdrops. I had so much fun with them!! I cant wait for their wedding day- it’s going to a gorgeous fall wedding in new york city in the restaurant Public in Nolita!!!
