Kirsten & João: In Step With One Another

Please allow me to introduce you to Kirsten and João, who recently celebrated their engagement with a photo shoot on the High Line.  These two met a few years ago across the dance floor at BAM Cafe in Brooklyn.  João, a native of Brazil, and Kirsten, originally from Illinois, are huge fans of Brazilian and African dance.  Their skills on the dance floor are evident in this photo shoot as they show the world how they make beautiful music together.  Enjoy the pics!

Justine and Dave: ‘Trash the Dress’ Shoot

Thinking about doing a ‘trash the dress’ shoot?  Check out these photos of Justine and Dave, who I was lucky enough to photograph for their wedding in June at the Davenport Beach Club in New Rochelle.  They decided that instead of a traditional engagement portrait they wanted something a little bit different that would give Justine a second chance to show off her dress.  And so Dave and Justine took the dress out for a whirl around Battery Park in NYC.  The sunlight was incredible and was a nice complement to the couple’s dancing skills.  Enjoy!

A High Line Engagement: Anna & Andrew

High Line engagement photo shot during golden hour by NYC wedding photojournalist, Kelly Williams

Hi everyone!  I am pleased to share with you the recent High Line engagement portrait of Anna and Andrew.  As you can tell from the photos, the lighting was perfect!  A few words of wisdom if you are going to stage a shoot at the High Line: first, if at all possible, schedule your shoot for the morning.  The tourists come in throngs to the High Line, making it nearly impossible to get a clear shot without a lot of patience.  Mornings, before the 10:00 a.m. rush, are the best.  Second, take advantage of all that the High Line has to offer.  There are several different views, terrain, and moods to the High Line.  Make sure your shoot goes from the Meatpacking District down to 34th Street to get some different looks without ever having to get off the High Line.

I’m honored to be photographing Anna and Andrew’s wedding this weekend at the Alger House.  Best of luck to them both as they walk down the aisle!

Battery Park Engagement: Colleen & John

A Battery Park engagement shoot by NYC engagement photographer, Kelly Williams

Beautiful day for a Battery Park engagement shoot, just as the sun is setting.  Please meet Colleen and John, who picked the perfect day for their shoot.  A few words of advice if you are planning on taking photos in Battery Park.  First, you technically need a permit to take any organized photos in Battery Park.  That said, in all my six years of shooting engagements, I have never once come across a park ranger let alone a cop asking for a permit.  As such, I would skip paying the $230 fee required to shoot here.  Keep a lookout, but go ahead and shoot permit free.  Second, know that Battery Park has tourists in abundance and virtually no shade.  As such, I recommend shooting on a weekday when there are less tourists and to try and shoot during ‘golden hour’: one hour after sunrise or one hour before sunset.  These photos were shot just before sunset and you can see how beautiful the light is.  There are no harsh shadows anywhere.  The light here is very ugly if you don’t have golden hour working in your favor, so you have been warned.  Enjoy the photos!
