I love doing Engagement photoshoots. Its a great way for me to connect with my clients and work with them in a relaxed environment before the hectic nature of the big day. Shortly after I scheduled Chloe and Yuan's Engagement photoshoot, I was secretly approached by Yuan, who wanted to surprise his bride-to-be with an amazing experience to photograph their Engagement session in The City That Never Sleeps. I was thrilled with the opportunity and after a few email exchanges, we had the schedule set. Yuan would surprise Chloe on their departure day, hop on a red-eye flight from YVR to JFK and meet me the following morning at Chelsea Market, an indoor marketplace filled with shops and eateries. We started our Engagement session there, eventually moving on to the High Line, an elevated park that runs on a disused railway line above the streets of Manhattan. After a quick visit to Central Park, we waited till nightfall and headed to the DUMBO (Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass) neighborhood in Brooklyn for some city nightscapes, before making our way back into Manhattan to finish off at the bustling Times Square and Grand Central Terminal. It was an absolutely amazing experience to shoot in New York City and I cannot wait to shoot Chloe and Yuan's Wedding in the coming months!
