With the end of summer drawing near, I thought it might be a good time to offer a few beach engagement tips drawn from Angii and Paul’s recent Long Beach engagement session. While this couple scheduled their engagement session AFTER they walked down the aisle (and I’ll have photos from their Montauk Lighthouse wedding soon!), the lessons learned from their photo session will help you plan the perfect seaside photo shoot, no matter when you book your session.
Looking for a leafy green venue for your engagement shoot, but not interested in the crowds of Central Park? Well have I got some suggestions for you. In today’s blog on NYC engagement shoot locations, I list what I think are the 11 most underrated alternatives to Central Park. You don’t have to be photographed with the masses; there are options available!
I recently shot an engagement portrait of Aimee and Colin at NYC’s High Line and the surrounding meatpacking district. In case you’re not familiar, the High Line is a public park built on an historic freight rail line elevated above the streets on Manhattan’s West Side. It is an extremely popular tourist destination in New York, and my recommendation to anyone wanting to have a photo shoot there is to do what we did: get there early on a weekday. At 10:00 a.m. on a Wednesday, we virtually had the place to ourselves which resulted in some great shots.
