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!
Hey everyone, Jon here. This was a particularly awesome engagement session that took place in New York City. In fact, we spent an entire day in NYC photographing great locations such as Central Park, D.U.M.B.O. and SoHo. What made the day even more enjoyable was having the chance to photograph two good friends– Howie (my other photographic-half/co-founder of Dreamlite Studios, LLC) and his fiancee Diana.
We visited the city during the peak of the fall foliage, so the leaves were as a-m-a-z-i-n-g as one could imagine. Although we encountered the usual crowds in NYC, the crowds all but seemed to ‘disappear’ at the most opportune photographic moments (see #8, #10, #11, #20). That’s right, no persons were photoshopped out of those photos!
