At the peak of the Autumn season, we met up with Tommy and Karen to photograph their engagement session. This photoshoot took place at Buccleuch Park, a location that looks and feels worlds apart from the college town it sits next to (namely, New Brunswick). Since Jon knows both Tommy and Karen personally from his undergraduate days at Rutgers, it made the entire atmosphere a lot more relaxed for the four of us.
The weather was almost on our side that day. We had great sunlight, golden leaves that stayed on the trees, white wispy clouds, and overall mild weather. However, we were hoping for a little more wind to blow the fallen leaves around. So what did we end up doing? We improvised (read: cheated). One of us shook a branch while the other had the camera. Although posed, we thought it made for some great photos. And yes, no trees were harmed during the making of these photos.
Tommy and Karen: We both cannot wait to be at your wedding in a few weeks!
We met up with Eric and Wendy on a cold and chilly autumn morning. When we first parked our car, the sun had come up just enough to give us a big warm greeting. This made for beautiful lighting, and yes, you guessed it, awesome photos!
Their engagement session began at the Highline. This park, located on the West Side of Manhattan, was once a network of train tracks delivering freight. Activists and locals fought for the preservation of this abandoned railroad for the last 10 years. This past summer, the park was finally open to the public. The Highline is an open-space public park filled with an abundance of flora and greenery. Definitely work checking out!
After the Highline, we travelled to D.U.M.B.O. right under the Brooklyn Bridge. Eric and Wendy were the perfect combination of relaxed and intimate– exactly the kind of couples we love working with.
Thanks for a great day, and we’re looking forward to your wedding in FIVE DAYS!!
