David and Eliza used to spend a bit of time rock climbing together when they first met... so it was really awesome when David suggested doing some photos at The CLIFFS at DUMBO !!!! I've always seen this place whenever I passed by shooting but never got to go in (I personally do not climb.. but am always around people or the places TO climb... my office is 2 blocks from the The Cliffs at LIC >_<) But anyways, I jumped at the idea- since I haven't done a shot with a couple rock climbing yet!! IT WAS SO MUCH FUN! We got some REALLY cool shots of them hanging off the rocks and sprawling about.. then finished off the rest of the session nearby Brooklyn Bridge Park. It was such a unique session in new york city. Here are some of my favorite shots: (PS: If you want to see David & Eliza's wedding day, here's the blog post for that!)
Nicole & Matthew had a sweet, intimate outdoor ceremony in the quaint little neighborhood of Vinegar Hill. Hidden away, they said their vows to each other and celebrated the occasion with delicious dinner, heartfelt toasts and bangin CAKE at Vinegar Hill House Restaurant !! Both amazing people with impeccable taste, they had chosen a beautiful restaurant and spruced it up with bits and pieces of their personalities. I loved being a part of this multicultural union and celebrating with their families! They even had a traditional Chinese tea ceremony and tried to include everyone on this wonderful tradition! It’s so great to be a new york city wedding photographer!
Here are some highlights from the day:
Nancy and Sung are sooo great to me! For their engagement session, they totally let me be creative and allowed me to 'do my thing' during our session. It was so much fun! The weather was beautiful in New York City that day! We walked around Brooklyn Bridge Park, read some books about NYC, found some odd alleyways, drank a few cups of coffee and then found random props from the street- all in one session! Nancy is originally from San Francisco, and Sung Jin is from New York City and we were able to get photos of these cute books that are a nod to their native city. The photos really came out great and I am so excited to be a part of their wedding in San Francisco in October! Another great day as a new york city wedding photographer!
