I’ll say it again – we had the best luck regarding our scheduling for being in New York! Between shooting a wedding in Rochester and attending a wedding in Rochester, we were able to hop on over to NYC for a few days to meet new clients, reunite with old clients, and photograph Aleigh+Joe’s engagement session in Red Hook! A lot of our Durham wedding clients are either currently living in New York City, or they used to live in New York City, and so we always have at least 2-3 pairs of clients in or around the city at any given time, and it’s nice to see them when we visit. Aleigh and Joe are having their wedding with us in Durham next year (wooo!), but just happened to e-mail us to request a Brooklyn engagement session, and we responded with YESSSssss because we adore shooting in New York, but also because we were going to be up around there anyway – yay!
These two are new clients for us and we love them already! They chose Red Hook for their engagement session location. Home to such things as a lot of awesome warehouses, graffiti, some empty parking lots next to a Snapple factory that has a pretty good view of the Manhattan skyline, AND a giant Ikea, it was clearly a great spot for their session. Plus there were a lot of adorable dogs getting walked and/or skateboarded around, and Aleigh appreciated this. Her and Joe were fabulously wonderful to work with despite unrelenting wind and me embarrassing everyone by wearing a giant backpack with Crocs in one of the most fashionable cities in America (I was traveling, dammit!). They and Joe are a ton of fun and also appreciate Brand New, a band also near and dear to our hearts. Most of the time you can find Aleigh and Joe laughing and being cute, so any and all moody shots below are brought to you by contemplating Brand New’s latest (saddest?) album.
