Risa and Jared are getting married this coming fall at The Roundhouse in Beacon, and for their engagement portraits they wanted to capture the neighborhood they live in by Grove Street in Jersey City. As the shoot day approached we weren’t sure if it would rain or not, and though there was a fair amount of very light sprinkling, it didnt’ interfere with the shooting and we were able to keep basically dry just by walking between spots with umbrellas. No big deal– plus the light on overcast days is super soft and pretty! We got the views of manhattan from a few spots as well as the beautiful post office across the street from their apartment building, and made sure to take some shots with the adorable sneakers Jared proposed to Risa with! Check out my favorites from the shoot and check back in October to see the wedding pictures!
Maya & Michael are getting married in late July up in Beacon, NY. They’ll be wed in a small private ceremony with close family in attendance and will celebrate the next evening with a traditional reception at The Roundhouse at Beacon Falls. I was so excited when they mentioned the Union Square Greenmarket as a potential spot for engagement portraits– I love the greenmarket myself and my husband and I even had a few engagement portraits taken of us there when we were planning our own wedding! The other area they were interested in was Madison Square Park, which is just a short walk uptown, so we were able to hit both areas and get some cool shots along the walk in between. These two love biking and use citibike frequently so that made for some really fun shots as well. Check out my favorites from their shoot and check back in August to see their wedding!
Delara and Nikhil are getting married this summer at Belle Haven Club in Greenwich, CT, and both of them have spent a lot of time in the financial district for work, so it made perfect sense to me when they mentioned meeting up in Battery Park area for their engagement session. The area has lots to offer– water views and landmarks, plus your usual city textures. For the 2nd half of their shoot we took a ferry ride across the river to Jersey City to get some shots with the NYC skyline. Then we headed back via the PATH train for a little variety, and finished with some sunset-time shots looking out from North Cove Yacht Harbor in Manhattan. Check out my favorites photographs from their shoot!
