Brides, take note, this is an AWESOME idea for your engagement shoot…forget the balloons and go for a full on photoshoot! Seriously, why not?? I asked Robert last summer during the Pop-up Chapel if he would be interested in raffling off something, and this amazing shoot is what he came up with! I love the idea of having a stylist involved…it really adds something to the photos, don’t you think?
Laureen and Colum were the winners of our engagement shoot during the Brooklyn Pop-Up Wedding Series, and instead of just taking traditional portraits I thought it would be fun to invite Natalie and Indira from éventus Planning to work together with me and style the shoot. It took place around the West Village/Meatpacking District, which is one of my favorite neighborhoods in the city for portraits because the cobblestone streets make a great NYC backdrop, and the Highline and the Hudson River are gorgeous at sunset. You rarely see flowers in engagement photos so Indira designed a casual bouquet for Laureen while we walked through the Highline. By far the most fun part of the shoot was the lovely picnic that the girls from éventus set up for us on the Westside Piers. Laureen and Colum love the water and it was the perfect way to end the afternoon.
