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!
Linda and Daniel recently moved to NYC and wanted to immortalize their time here by getting married in NYC! So when we talked about where to do their engagement session, Linda definitely wanted to incorporate the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Central Park! It was great to get some gorgeous shots inside the room of The Temple of Dendur at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. It’s such an iconic new york city spot and a place that had beautiful lighting. I think the highlight for me on this shoot was meeting the bubble man and having him teach us how to make HUGE bubbles in Central Park!! It was also really cool to have him create a huge heart bubble to encompass both Linda and Daniel!! Such a cool experience! I’m glad they chose me to be their new york city wedding photographer! I am also shooting their gorgeous wedding next fall!
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:
Sherrie and Dan both attended Teacher's College at Columbia University on the Upper West Side of NYC. So when they asked if they could do their engagement session there-- I was really excited!!! I don't know what it is about libraries... ^_^ Our session began in the space where they spent most of their time studying, learning and equipping themselves to become the wonderful teachers that they are today. Dan now teaches High Schoolers and Sherrie teaches elementary students. I have so much respect for these two, they are excited to inspire and mentor the younger generation. They're also extremely carefree, fun and easy to be around and talk to!! It was a great session filled with taking polaroids of each other, singing, playing the guitar & ukulele and just really enjoying being each other's presence. We ended the night at Riverside Drive Park, and it was such a wonderful space and atmosphere to be in! It was awesome and I can't wait to photograph their wedding day as their new york city wedding photographer! They will be having their reception at Picnic House in Prospect Park! It’s going to so rad!!!
