Congrats to Robin and Chad, who recently became engaged! [I had the honor of shooting their wedding as well, but more on that later…] Robin and Chad are a testament to the fact that if love is meant to be, it will be no matter time or distance. After originally meeting over 17 years ago, they were reunited over Facebook and started dating long distance. Their 13 year ‘break’ became a thing of the past when Chad asked Robin to marry him on the deck of his parents’ house overlooking a beautiful Nova Scotian sunset.
For the shoot, we headed to the Highline where the NYC sunset was working in our favor. Enjoy the pics!
I could not have asked for better weather for my recent Madison Square Park engagement shoot with with Jingle and Huang last weekend! The park was overflowing with visitors, but these two lovebirds never noticed. We were able to carve out moments of privacy on benches and around the corners of the park so it looks like the couple has the park all to themselves. I also used a very shallow depth of field to blur out any visitors in the background. Finally, you’ll notice that a lot of the photos are close ups, because a wider shot would reveal the crowd beyond the shot.
I will have the pleasure of shooting their wedding on June 23rd, but in the meantime, please enjoy these lovely moments.

Hi all! I recently shot the wedding of two of my favorite people: Courtney and Warren. But before I get ahead of myself, I wanted to show you their engagement portrait photos from earlier in the month. The shoot took place at Coney Island — always a fantastic location for photos of any type. The weather was a bit cold, but Courtney and Warren persevered and the photos are lovely! In addition to the usual shots along the boardwalk, Cyclone, and in front of Nathan’s, we got off the beaten track and went down under the pier for some great photos.
Some tips for shooting at Coney Island: go on an off time. Trying to shoot great photos when you are surrounded by hundreds of beach goers is not an ideal situation. Avoid the weekends and any major holidays. Early morning is a great time to shoot as well. Also, don’t forget about the Aquarium and the Russian neighborhood of Brighton Beach. Enjoy the photos!

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.

I recently shot an engagement shoot on Coney Island for the lovely Sandy and Noah. They are a fun couple, and it shows in their choice of location. As always, April is unpredictable, weather-wise, but we made the most of it and the sun was shining by the end of the afternoon. Coney Island is a great location for portrait shoots of all types, but always keep in mind the crowd factor and schedule your shoot either early or late in the day. Also, plan to get a bit wet and sandy on the beach so plan your outfit accordingly!
These two are big dancers (as you will see in their wedding photos), and Noah is quite the acrobat. Coney Island is the perfect place to show off your moves, on the board walk and beyond. Enjoy the photos.
