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 am 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!
