Melanie & Tommy : Coney Island : Engagement

Start with two awesome people with great attitude, sprinkle in a bit of beautiful weather, mix in with a great challenging location and you get one awesome engagement shoot.

Melanie & Tommy picked Coney Island for their engagement shoot because it's always been one of their favorite places, as I'm sure it is for many of you. I knew the location would be fun and gorgeous but going there in the middle of the day in June created it's own challenge: so, many, people! We decided to get creative, using everything from different camera angles, to stopping foot traffic at bar's staircase, to high-jacking murals & carnival rides to serve as our backdrops. Melanie & Tommy, thank you guys for letting me be part of this special day and I'm super stoked to photograph your wedding in a few months!

Brittney and Kevin : Anniversary : Bryant Park Hotel

Remember when I told you that Brittney and Kevin are awesome? They've proved it once again when they invited me to take some photos of them for their one year anniversary at the Bryant Park Hotel. We had a plan to take some shots in the room and then head out into the park to shoot in the basking evening sunlight before their dinner date. Unfortunately, or fortunately rather, after a hotel screw-up, they were upgraded to the penthouse suite with floor to ceiling windows on three of the walls. The massive open space combined with the changing light casting wonderful shadows and their ability to go from being serious and taking direction to being themselves and having just oodles of fun with each other like no one is looking allowed us to play around with different moods and environments that we felt there was no need to leave the space. Hope you enjoy viewing these photos as much as I enjoyed taking them.
