Ming and Marc – Engagement in NYC

Filed under: engagements, New York, Personal, Photography, Uncategorized — Su-Lynn @ 11:57 pm

Sorry for the lack of posting but I had come home from 2 separate vacations to Hawaii (Maui and Kauai) and was packing (and unpacking) furiously. Here are a couple of pics of Ming and Marc, whom I shot around the Upper East and in Central Park. It was a fabulous fall day!! I had already edited the images earlier but recently purchased the new Totally Rad Presets and was just trying to experiment with them. They are great! I’ve still got to get used to learning each one, but I am emjoying myself playing around at the momemt, and learning new ways of post processing.

 We started of at a church on the Upper East Side, boasting a wonderful red door!

 

 

 

 

 

Ming and Marc love Magnolia cupcakes, so since I live dangerously near one, I brought some along for our shoot.

 

 

I think eating them was their favorite part of the shoot!

 

Gee, your cupcake looks better than mine!

 

Gotta love the fabulous orange Hermes billboards. Now if only someone will get me a Birkin…

 

 

We moved on to Central Park, where Marc had proposed to Ming. Here’s a silhouette of them in one of the many “tunnels”

 

 

 

 

Love the lighting here, so I didn’t have to do too much to the pic to keep it’s nice faded tone.

 

A black and white version

 

I *heart* the next pic! It got a bit warm so I asked them to hang their coats on the tree next to them.

 

Marc’s famous for his “kicking the heels” jumps

 

 

 

 

 Some cute portraits

 

I think this one’s a keeper!

 

 

Love the next two “street” scenes

 

 

This was a special shoot for me because as most of you know, Ming is my sister!!! Their wedding is in April of this year, and I can’t wait to be a bridesmaid again (although not looking forward to having to fit into a bridesmaid’s dress again. Bootcamp anyone?)
