I met Melissa about a year and a half ago when my studio building was having ‘open studios’… she is an artist and at that time was renting a space in my building. Cut to a year later and Melissa is engaged to the wonderful fellow you see below! They’ll be tying the knot this March in New Orleans, a bit out of my geographical range (though if you want to hire me for an out of town wedding I *will gladly* do it, but you do have to figure in the travel and accomodations for me + my assistant into your budget), but hired me to do some engagement portraits for them. I was so excited when Melissa mentioned the amazing new High Line Park as a possible location– this park is so cool and I hadn’t gotten to do any shoots there yet since it opened. Of course, our scheduled timeslot ended up being incredibly windy and I had no idea how exceedingly popular and crowded this very narrow park is– it’s not as flexible for shooting as Central Park (and may be one of the toughest places I’ve shot, rivalling Times Square!)… but we made out all right and I got some really great shots of them both on the Highline and down at streetlevel in the surrounding neighborhood when it got too cold and windy to bear.
