Two weeks ago, Doug and I went to New York City to photograph a lovely couple – Tiffany and Ly. Their wedding will be held in Cancun, Mexico next year! We started our session in Central Park where they wanted more romantic pictures. Afterwards, Tiffany and Ly wanted some edgier pictures in the urban Manhattan, New York.
Central Park and Manhattan were full of photography opportunities! We really didn’t have to even to think of cool places to shoot. Turn the corner and there would be another spot! 🙂
Central Park – Belvedere Castle
This is Doug showing how the pose should look HAHA Look at those cute cuddly eyes…
Central Park – Bethesada Terrace & Angel of Water Fountain
When we were leaving Central Park, we ran into a really good singer. We asked Tiffany and Ly if they would like to dance for a few minutes.
New York Metro Subway
Once exiting the subway in SOHO (New York City), we saw a discarded office chair on the sidewalk. Doug and I looked at each other and grinned. 🙂 Making sure that it was safe to sit on, we planted the office chair in the middle of the busy sidewalk. We asked Tiffany and Ly to hold still while we dragged the shutter so that the pedestrians will have a nice motion blur.
The following image is one of our favorites! We couldn’t have left NYC without taking a high fashion picture with the urban grunge of New York City (SOHO). We absolutely love the cobble stone street and the various colors in the background. If you look at the bottom left corner, there were a number of cooks and servers loitering outside because they were on break. We used them in the following picture!
The staff was a little shy at first, but after much encouraging, we got them to line up for a picture. It was well worth it!
Good bye New York! We always <3 it there. Our cousins and many friends (including Parris Whittingham - a photographer) reside in that area. I will make a post on our random adventures with Parris and our dear cousins in another post. Thank you Tiffany and Ly for being such graceful subjects! We look forward to working with you in Cancun (Mexico) next year!!! Cheers, Lawrence - Contact Me!
P.S. Tiffany – Doug still remembers that you will hook him up with a girlfriend ;D
