E-Session: Vanessa + Jonathan

These two amazingly kind people contacted me a year ago from Singapore and asked if I would help them document their engagement session in NYC. I was floored when I got that email and was thankful that they entrusted me with this task. Check out some of my favorite images for Vanessa and Johnathan session:

We explored Rockefeller Center documenting some iconic locations before we went up to the Top of the Rock observatory.They were brave to get onto the street to capture them in front of the church.Their candid smiles made me a happy photographer.
Timeless.
It’s all about timing for this shot. The rain stopped, people disapppered from the frame, and the moment was just right…
Back against the door, head on the door handle…all worth it to get these lines converging on Jonathan and Vanessa.We arrived here around 8pm and there was no one in sight. It was pretty amazing to have the entire NYPL steps to ourselves…couldnt ask for anything better.Just chilling with Patience.Always found the entrance to grand central terminal just as iconic if not a better perspective to show the wonderful architecture with the busy scene of NYC.Sometimes the simplest gestures create the biggest impact in an image.One of my favorite shots of all time. It helps that the station was basically cleared of anyone and it was just them isolated in this one moment.Noticed these spotlights on the ground and had to use them.When in NYC come see a broadway show and they sure did. They saw Aladdin and I couldn’t resist to come back to capture a few shots in this very spot.This was such a hidden gem in Times Square. I never noticed this before but I am glad I did.

What a great way to spend the evening in NYC with these two incredible people. I hope our paths cross again, maybe when I am in Singapore. =)

WD: Ana + Daniel

 

It may have been a rainy day but both Ana and Daniel didn’t let that stop them from enjoying their special day. It incredible how awesome these two were to brave the rain and have some incredible moments captured outside. Here are some of my favorites from the day:

Ceremony: Old Westbury Gardens

Reception: Bell Port Country Club

A little veil on the mirror to create this effect.A moment between Ana and her mom just before she gets into the dress. I told them to think about today and how wonderful it will be…mom told me to stop because she doesn’t want to start crying already
Placed the veil on the mirror to get some texture…this moment just happened at the right angle. Love when everything works perfectly.Ana wanted to make sure I was there to capture her’s dad’s candid reaction to seeing her in the wedding dress for the first time and it was wonderful. The groom, Daniel, getting ready. I love the silhouette, shot by MichaelAna arriving at Old Westbury Gardens for some photos and the first look. Getting ready.It may have been raining but that didn’t stop them for being game to do the first look underneath very chic polkadot umbrellas. Love adventurous couples.The rain didn’t stop how wonderful this moment was for them.Nothing beats capturing these two lovely people in this amazing interior space.Some portraits outside in the rain…was it worth me getting a little soaked, heck yeah!“You ready for this!?”Caught this moment right when we finished with the ceremony and we were rushing to the reception which was an hour away. Daniel was outside getting the umbrella and Ana was waiting inside. They are a perfect fit.Its always great to have an awesome crew.During the first dance.It’s a special moment when two families become one…Luckily the rain stopped at this point and we were able to do a sparkler send-off to top off an incredible wedding.
