Grand Central Station portrait session photos:

It was a really exciting moment for me when Anita and Michael emailed to ask if I would be their wedding photographer. They actually live in England, but were planning an intimate wedding celebration in New York City. They had seen my work online and wanted to fly me over to the east coast to capture not only their wedding, but also these Grand Central Station portrait session photos.

We first spoke face-to-face through Skype, and both Anita and Michael were full of energy and love for one another. They had met around a decade ago, and knew from the moment they laid eyes on each other that they were going to end up together forever.

We discussed their wedding day plans in New York City’s Central Park and also their ideas for a portrait session with just the two of them the following day. They wanted to incorporate some of the city’s most iconic landmarks and areas, namely the magnificent Grand Central Station, the High Line and the iconic Brooklyn Bridge.

We met up on the afternoon following their wedding, with my photography assistant Gonzalo helping us to capture these Grand Central Station portrait session photos. We used some off-camera flash lighting techniques within the dimly-lit main hall of the station, as well as captured some fun shots of them checking the metro route, riding the subway and taking a sneak peek at each other from behind two of the city’s most famous newspapers.

Brooklyn Bridge portrait session photos:

Just after dusk, we headed to the Brooklyn Bridge to capture some nighttime portraits of Anita and Michael with New York’s city skyline behind them, as well as a few incorporating the car headlights of the banked up traffic on the bridge below.

It’s always a pleasure to travel across the country for wedding and portrait sessions in a different city, and this shoot in New York with Anita and Michael was particularly special.
