This is officially the longest engagement session I’ve ever had in my career, but whew! It was worth it, because check these photos out! This is Ritchie and Oz. My first time meeting them went smoothly and awesomely. They’re a fun couple and easily excited (like myself), and when I found out that their wedding is in New York I went nuts! I love New York, I must’ve said that at least a million times in this blog.

We covered Grand Central Terminal, Central Park, a rooftop, a couple of cab rides, Empire State Building, and an ice cream truck. But it was all worth it, because…we had some bomb ramen on St. Mark’s, and it was de-lish-us. During the day we fueled up with some Starbuck’s danishes and Lehmann’s ice cream. What I really love about my job is meeting cool people, hanging out with them, and eating good food with them. I love it.

What was challenging about this day was having to lug around two bags of clothes all around New York City (well I didn’t, but they did.). And I guess that is one perk about living in Los Angeles; everybody drives and has a car. Also my lips were getting crazy chapped from the cold weather. My lips are still kind of messed up from the trip, but it was all worth it.

Thank you again Ritchie and Oz! I look forward to seeing you guys again in August

This is another engagement that I photographed in NYC. This lovely young couple is Serena and Mark and arguably one of the most fashionable  couples I have photographed in my career. I have to give it up to Mark for his strikingly sharp jacket, I love it.  Mark and I had a considerably long conversation about fashion which is not something I’m used to having with guys. But it was actually really fun and interesting. But before that conversation we had a very exciting conversation about camera gear and camera backpacks. He showed me his Canon 7D with this cool eye attachment that he uses to shoot video. Mark shoots for MTV, by the way, which is pretty incredible. Then I busted out my favorite camera backpack of all time, the Lowepro Flipside 300, to show him, and he was impressed, I think.

After the shoot we all went to Central Park to go ice-skating. It was a lot of fun despite having to pay a whole lot of money for for rentals and lockers. :(. There are photos from their shoot. At the request of Serena, this was shot in a fashionable way.

The shot below is kinda cliche with a blurry moving train in the back, but I’ve always wanted to do it.  So yay!
