I love it when my wedding clients that live in NYC request that their engagement session takes place there. My main goal during engagement sessions is to create beautiful pictures that are meaningful to my clients. I think one method to achieve this goal is to have the session in a location that is significant to them. Angel and Dan have a dog that they walk in this neighborhood in Queens. The pictures incorporating the graffiti were taken at 5 Pointz which is a world renowned graffiti mecca. Many of the world’s top aerosol artists have contributed to the artwork there. Sadly, 5 Pointz is slated for demolition at the end of 2013 to make way for NYC’s seemingly insatiable appetite for luxury condos.
I really had a great time walking around, taking pictures, and getting to know Angel and Dan a bit better. We even went out for tacos afterwards! I’m sure the time invested will result in even better wedding photos!
