Behind the Scenes: Venue Check in Central Park

Hi everyone!  I hope you all had a chance to enjoy the final day of nice weather here in NYC.  I was in Central Park this afternoon doing a venue check at the Bethesda Terrace for the Friday wedding of Bonnie & Gerry.  I’ve shot countless numbers of engagements, weddings, and portraits in this very location, but it never hurts to circle back to a venue and make sure there are no recent changes, such as construction, closed off entrances, or heaven forbid, graffiti.  If I haven’t been to a venue in a while, I always try to do a walk through to ensure that nothing has changed visually.  It also gives me the chance to see a venue from a fresh perspective and add some new shots to my list.  For Bonnie and Gerry’s wedding, I’ll be shooting through the mosaic terrace towards the Bethesda Fountain in the hopes of avoiding some of the tourists and adding a twist on this classic shot.  In addition, I hope to have enough time to shoot the couple through the cement handrail on the stairs to the right of the mosaic terrace.  #BonnieAndGerry2014

I’ll have the top photos from Bonnie and Gerry’s wedding on Saturday, but in the meantime, enjoy the pic!
