The busy wedding season is upon us! This weekend will bring the joyous nuptials of Melody and Michael, who will be getting married at the India House, located in the financial district. I’m thrilled to be photographing this lovely couple, and wanted to share with you photos from their engagement shoot, shot this past May during the cherry blossom season.
Melody and Michael live on Roosevelt Island, so this shoot was near and dear to their heart. If you have not been to Roosevelt Island, you have to go. The tram trip alone is worth it. The island really is an undiscovered gem, especially for photography shoots: it offers fantastic views of the New York City skyline and has some of the best cherry blossoms in the city during the season. In addition, the island has parks and recreation areas along with antique architecture (smallpox hospital, anyone?) and modern infrastructure (the FDR Four Freedoms Park) so you can mix it up in pictures for a variety of backgrounds. Roosevelt Island seems to grow more with every year, adding more restaurants, shops, and places to visit. Check out the pics, and consider Roosevelt Island for your next shoot. #MelodyAndMichael #ILoveRooseveltIsland
