I recently photographed Brittany and Eric's engagement session in NYC while I was in town shooting some weddings. This lovely and crazy couple live right in Union Square, so we had some fun walking around the middle of the city and goofing off while taking some gorgeous photos! Luckily, the weather was nice, as it had been raining the past few days and was unnaturally cool for an NYC summer.
NYC engagement photo fun
I had the pleasure of meeting Brittany a few years ago when I was still a tech journalist, and Brittany was (and still is) working in tech PR. We became close friends, and soon I met her elusive boyfriend, Eric, who was always out of town for work. The three of us clicked immediately, so when they became engaged, it just made sense for me to shoot their engagement photos!
Shooting engagement photos in NYC can be pretty wild and hectic with the crowds, traffic and everything else that happens on the streets. But with these two, and the help of my friend Steve Young, it was just like hanging out on any other day - except I had a camera on me, and Brittany was looking beautiful with her hair and makeup done. Eric wasn't so bad himself with his shirt tucked in!
Perhaps the best part of the day was taking photos on the roof of their apartment building, where we had some killer skies and views of the streets below. We did try to hop into Gramercy Park, where Brittany had no fear of scaling a fence, but we decided to play it safe by running into the middle of traffic instead. Ha!
Congrats to these two on their awesome future together and here's to more good times in New York! I love you guys.
