Engaged in New York City – West Side Love Story

This was a beautiful engagement session I was so pleased to have photographed.. I’ve done a bunch of engagement sessions on the west side of Manhattan on and around the Highline, but never with a couple who actually met in that area and went to the same High School right there.. it was pretty cool that Fabricio and Rachel both grew up there.

 

I love that area of the city I think there’s such a cool vibe. Its unlike any area of New York City and the Highline is such a fun place for photography. I’m really looking forward to their wedding at the exclusive Abigail Kirsch venue at Stage 6 Steiner Studios. I think they both have a great style about them and look awesome in these photos.. You’ll see those shots for sure later this fall, but enjoy these for now.

John Leguizamo, Shake Shack, Edible Queens, and the New York Mets

When I got the call for this assignment I was excited to hear it was going to be my first magazine cover..and when I found out it would be with John Leguizamo I was even for into it, as I’ve always enjoyed him from his films to the HBO specials he’s done. The story was for Edible Queens, a NYC based food magazine where I’ve been doing a lot of photography recently. We went to Mets stadium and John ate some Shake Shack Burgers and some sushi for the story.

The shoot was great and John was a lot of fun to work with, and afterwards the Mets people treated us all to some Shake Shack burgers and fries, so how could you complain (its one of my favorite burgers in the world).

Then to top it off the in house photographer at the Mets asked me during my shoot if he could take a few shots of John, so the Mets would have some photos to use.  I always try to be friendly to fellow photographers so I made sure he got a few good ones in. Afterwards he came up and thanked me and said, “Hey anytime you want to come to the stadium and sit down with the press photographers let me know and I’ll have you come in and take some shots.” How could I pass that up? So last week I made it to the Mets vs. Colorado game with Johan Santana (one of their ace pitchers) on the mound. It was an awesome game and I got a chance to try out a 300mm lens which was pretty cool (brings you close to the action). Now I just hope no one gets mad at me for saying I’m a Yankees fan 🙂
