Well, Hurricane Irene has come and gone and New York City appears to have dodged a bullet. There was significant flooding and wind damage in some areas but not nearly as bad as it could have been. Kudos to the NYC officials for taking lots of precautions.
And now an engagement session that looks like it was done during the hurricane but let me assure you it WAS NOT! It was taken the week before, during one of the many deluges we had throughout August.
I have known Summer and James for many years so I was very honored when they told me they would like to have me as their photographer for their wedding. When it came to shoot the engagement photos, it was pouring outside and we all said “F&*k it! Let’s go for it!” So they grabbed their umbrellas and I put on my rain gear and we headed out to Athena Park in Astoria…
Have questions? I can answer them for you.
