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!
I had SUCH a fun time with these two, wandering the west village and Tribeca in New York City and trying to tame a dog-balloon! (I named him ROGER, and I tried to sneak him into Haiti with me... but that was a bust..) I loved how carefree these two were and willing to have fun with me in strange little creative spaces. We wandered around and even found a HUGE PIZZA BALLOON. You can never go wrong with PIZZA in NEW YORK CITY! It was so awesome to be able to be their New York City wedding photographer and capture these amazing and funny moments! I cannot wait to shoot their new york city wedding in a few months!
Here are some of my favorite shots:
Fabiana and Michele came all the way from Brasil to get their engagement session taken in New York City. Fabiana had lived and studied in NYC and frequented the Metropolitan Museum of Art. So of course that would be her number one pick to do her engagement session. It was a very cold NYC Winter day, but we also braved Central Park for some beautiful shots of the frozen lake! I am so glad they chose me to be their New York City wedding and engagement photographer!
Jenny and Tim live nearby South Street seaport, so they wanted to do their session down there, eat some tacos at one of their fav spots and walk around Battery Gardens-- oh and bring along their (big) pup, Rosie for the shoot! It was such a fun time walking around with them, trying to include Rosie in some shots and getting to know them! I loved that we got to eat some tacos at El Luchador!! Their tacos are so delicious!! I always love combining food into my engagement and wedding sessions- which is what makes it so great to live in NYC and be a new york city wedding photographer!! I’ll be shooting their wedding next year and it’s going to be exciting! Here are some of my favorites:
