Judith & Pradeep – Central Park engagement portraits

Tuesday, November 15th, 2011


We’ve had such incredibly beautiful weather this month with the fall colors hitting their peak and surprisingly balmy temperatures.  I’ve loved being able to spend much of the month photographing couples and families outdoors. The light in the fall is so different than the summer.  With the shorter days we can have some incredible light midday filtering through the trees.  Of course all that color is also fun to play with.

I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know Judith and Pradeep before photographing their wedding next April.  I always tell couples that these sessions are not only fun, but a great way for us to get know each other and for them to become comfortable posing for photos.  The aim, of course, is for it to not feel like posing.  That’s where talking ahead of time about ideas and locations than have an appeal for each couple is really important.  Both Judith and Pradeep love spending time in natural settings so Central Park with all it’s variety seemed a great choice.  We even ran into Big Bird there.

Super cool flash mob proposal

I couldn’t resist posting this wonderful, fun proposal on the London underground.  Apparently the prospective groom, Adam, had to sabotage Lucy’s car when she considered driving to work that morning rather than take the train.

Bernadette & Andrew, Central Park Portraits

Wednesday, November 2nd, 2011

I wish I’d been able talk Bernadette and Andrew into letting me photograph their city hall wedding.  They put a wonderful spin on the day by enjoying a ferry ride to Staten Island to the city hall there to make things more romantic.  Love is just as sweet the second time around….Bernadette said she’d found her soulmate in Andrew.

These are some of the portraits I did of them before their quiet, elegant dinner for friends at MOMA.  Only MOMA would come up with such a cool MODERN wedding cake…I just had to show it off.
