The weather in NYC has been all over the place lately and this Meatpacking District Engagement Session was no exception. The cold and wind didn’t make things easy for Katie, Jordan, and I but look at these stunning results we were able to capture!
Before every session I send my couples a What to Wear PDF guide and after this one I will be updating it to include “Use lots of hair spray on windy days!” If you are planning your own engagement session in NYC contact me today and I will be happy to send over the what to wear guide!
As always every session I do brings its own set of challenges and this was no different. The crazy wind was not enough during this Meatpacking District engagement session but it was a bit difficult working around people passing by. I always try to make it seem like my subjects are the only ones in the area and make them the sole focus of the photograph so I am very strategic with camera angles and how I compose the image to exclude anyone else. This is very difficult at The High Line!
While these engagement session photos taken on The High Line might seem like they were simple to set up and shoot, in reality while the park is beautiful it can be incredibly difficult and time consuming to capture a photo with just the two of you alone. The pathways are long and narrow with people passing by almost constantly, even on colder days like this one (and in the summertime forget about it!) If you plan on having your engagement session at The High Line in the Meatpacking District I suggest bringing plenty of patience 🙂
See the difference between the photo above and the photo below? While there isn’t really anything wrong with the one above, I can certainly say my personal preference is the one where Katie and Jordan are the only focus of the photograph and the eye does not wander around on background noise.
