Couples photo session in DUMBO and Brooklyn Bridge Park

If you ask me, people don’t do couples shoots often enough. So I am always delighted when I get to shoot a couples session (see an earlier couples session I did here). This lovely duo, who call Oklahoma home, came to NYC for a quick vacation and, out of the millions of photographers in NYC, asked me to document their love. I was touched to learn that this is the first time they have had professional photos together. They were both so down to earth and easy going, I would have thought it was their tenth shoot - seriously. They gave me completely creative control right out of the gate - said they'll go wherever and do whatever I asked. It's really wonderful when clients have that confidence in you right from the beginning. Needless to say, I know these photos mean a great deal to this sweet couple and I very much hope they are everything they were hoping for and more. To the rest of you, take a peak at this gorgeous couple - I'm lucky to do what I do!
