most about NYC is that the people that inhabit that island LOVE their city!! They talk about NYC as “their city”. There’s a certain feeling of ownership and belonging that is so evident whenever I am around New Yorkers and I think it’s really special! You don’t find that in EVERY city and so it’s always refreshing to hear about how much a couple loves where they live! Hieu and Sandra have been in the city for several years. Their jobs brought them to Manhattan and since they have lived there for quite some time, they know their way around! Whew! What a relief! It’s always a little intimidating to show up to a MASSIVE city
and try to find locations for an engagement shoot! Sandra had the locations planned so perfectly! She even had them timed out!! We accomplished SO much in a couple of hours and as we walked around the city, I got to hear a little about their life and their story. Sandra later explained that she came to this city hoping and praying that she would meet someone like Hieu…. and as they took their engagement pictures, it almost seemed surreal to think about where her life is now! They have a beautiful NYC life together and I LOVED being a part of it for the day!! Hieu and Sandra are such a kind, sweet couple and I’m so thankful that I was able to shoot these images in their “home town”!! Enjoy some of my favorites!Seriously, Sandra picked some awesome spots!! One of my favorites!! Another fav…. Thank you two for being patient and waiting for a few seconds of clear stairs! It’s hard to find a clear area in Central Park! People are EVERYWHERE!
Oh, this wedding day!! What a beautiful Texan dream! I met Melanie when she attended one of our workshops years ago in our home. She had the sweetest spirit and such a kindness about her. I remember loving how she made personal marketing her own and did headshots in a pile of Skinny Pop!! I loved her creativity and her ability to envision what she wanted in her brand.
My review of the Canon EOS R6 after shooting a full wedding day is LIVE on Youtube! I was so nervous to use a brand new camera system for full wedding day… I had my Mark IV ready in my bag just in case… but thankfully, I never had to use it! I was really hoping that I would love it and feel comfortable with it….
This wedding venue may look familiar to some of you who have been following us for a while! I photographed Meghan’s brother’s wedding a few years ago at this very same farm and venue!
Natural light photographers…. (flash photographers, we know how you would handle these scenarios and that’s awesome for your style! This is for the natural light folks!)
I’ve been hoping for this day for a very long time…. but I wasn’t sure that it would ever come. That sounds dramatic but let me explain. I LOVE my website company. Showit is incredible and the more I learn about and experience other platforms for hosting and creating custom websites, the more I realize, they aren’t really, truly “custom” at all. Showit is the website design platform for the creative. Hands-down. It’s so powerful, so intuitive and so easy to use. Years ago, Showit created a way to implement a Showit theme onto a Wordpress blog!!! Genius! I couldn’t wait for my blog to be a Showit blog…. but it never happened.
If you are like me and you’re a natural light wedding photographer, you may not love using the Canon 600 EX-RT flashes. But they are so necessary!
