I had such a blast with Shirin and J.R.! They brought me up to the city I called home for 6 years and a city that I still adore – I mean hey, it IS the greatest city in the world – NYC, and it’s the city where they fell in love.
We started off around the brownstones in the Village, and popped into Milk and Cookies so they could share a treat. Then we hightailed it up to Chelsea to pick up their adorable dog, Fiona and made our way over to the Hudson River Park. I thought it was so funny that Fiona’s preferred method of transportation was in the arms of J.R. – hilarious! Why walk, when you can catch a ride?
Since, I had moved away before the High Line was completed, Shirin and J.R. graciously gave us the tour and of course, we took some more snuggly photos. Another treat was waiting for me up there when I ran into my good friend Karen Hill, a day earlier than scheduled, who was photographing her own client’s engagement portraits. After a quick, “See you tomorrow for lunch!” we went on to explore more of the awesome elevated rail park. For a city so big, it sure can have a friendly small world feeling, which is the best reason why I loved photographing this engagement portrait – Shawn and I felt like we were fast friends with Shirin and J.R. and I hope that we run into them again for another, “Ah, such a small world” moment. But we will definitely see you guys back in the City for your wedding – can’t wait!
