Jade and Jorge got engaged the midnight before Valentine’s Day on the top of the Eiffel Tower. Swoon. These two met in New York City – where they both currently live and work. Food and style are their loves, and they are having a wedding reception next fall in Boston, as this is where Jade grew up, and a couple weeks before that, they are officially getting married in Spain, where Jorge was born, at a location that I’m sure is going to wow all their guests. I had the pleasure of traveling to NYC right after Jamaica to create this beautiful session that shows off the city they love.
We began in West Village. It has European charm – which Jade loves because she has also studied abroad in Europe – and we found this beautiful little garden that was private and colorful
I’m a big fan of wavy long tresses. When my hair grows out I want it to look like what Jade did here. Fun huh? I also love sparkly cute things in hair!
A couple of people have written me lately to ask about just how I achieve my photos. I tell this to everyone – and my clients – light. Let light rule the way you see the world
We drove to the DUMBO region (can someone tell me what that stands for?) and ended with a beautiful sunset at the Brooklyn Bridge Park
I do quite like city views =)
Thank you Jade and Jorge for showing me around and for a great evening! I will see you guys next year!
Many thanks to Amy Bao who assisted at this shoot and the previous shoot. We checked out an exhibit at the MoMA called Talk to Me. If you like gadgets, technology, communication, this is a great one for you!
