I love New York City. There are very few substitutes in this life that feel as electric as walking down Fifth Avenue on a beautiful spring day….very VERY few substitutes. One of my favorite “blocks” in all of Manhattan has to be the New York Public Library. That city block from 5th to 6th Ave on 42nd is in my opinion quintessential NYC. Its a place where I feel so connected to the city’s rich past, with the beautiful NYPL to my left, and the immediate and pulsating present with gleaming skyscrapers towering all around me. I could go on and on.
So, when Thad and Ashley wanted engagement photos in the city, one building and spot came to mind, the New York Public library. Ashley and her fiancé Thad, are so sweet and perfect together. They both come from a performing background so they were immediately comfortable being the center of attention. This engagement session was so easy to photograph because Ashley and Thad trusted me completely and gave me absolute artistic freedom to create what my minds eye desired. I really think the film picked up beautifully on her dress and gave the marble a subtle and lovely pink tone which tied ever think together. I’m just in love, in love with this couple, this session, and this city….sigh. enjoy.
