New York City Seaport District Engagement Session

Meeting Daina and Ben in the area of New York City that they live was like meeting friends I’ve known for years. They didn’t hesitate to immediately be themselves even though there was a camera involved. They pinched each others butt’s, rode Citibikes around the block, did cartwheels at their favorite park and ended the morning with the best damn ice cream I’ve ever had. If there is something that keeps me in this job it’s witnessing the different ways that people love each other. It looks unique on everyone – and I feel really honored to give them this time capsule. Also disclaimer : I promise I take color photos but something about New York City made me want to blog these all in black and white.
