Liang + Andrew

Liang and Andrew are a super cute and smiley couple who ventured out with me to Central Park for their engagement session last Spring and we got some beautiful lush flowers and gorgeous green leaves just starting to bud. Their wedding was even prettier at the Cairnwood Estates in Pennsylvania. I remember Liang saying how her jaw was starting to hurt from smiling all day, and you can tell it was true genuine happiness.

Nancy + Steve

Nancy and Steve are my very close friends, and it was a pleasure to photography their 10-year “together” celebration. Who says you can’t take couple photos anytime during your relationship just for the sake of photos? Nancy also happens to be one of the best makeup artists that I work with.

Evacuated City

Two years in a row New York is being hit by a major storm caused by a hurricane, and this year’s Sandy will be a lot more devastating than Irene. The night before the storm, New York City forces public transportation shut downs and evacuations. While the weather is still relatively calm, the city is mostly dead with only a few souls roaming around. This was my perfect opportunity to capture empty streets of a city that “never sleeps”. I drove to some of the more well known spots, from Times Square, Columbus Circle, Apple Store, to Herald Square, Union Square and Meatpacking District.

Grace + Cefaan

It’s always a treat to work with a small bridal party who alots ample amount of time for formal portraits, especially in a private location where no friends and family can bother us. More time and less people allows a more relaxed and enjoyable session that really shows in the result. I especially enjoyed photographing the couple on the second floor of the Bowery Hotel. The whole floor was closed off for us to run around and shoot. The ceremony and reception was at Astra, a small venue with a high floor balcony to enjoy the view.

El Bob goes to DUMBO

El Bob spends the morning in DUMBO, Brooklyn and walks across the bridge for the first time with all the tourists! There is always lots of colors to see in DUMBO and the place never looks exactly the same when you go back. One thing for sure, El Bob never leaves without making a new friend, even in New York!

El Bob inside the “Plaza” which looks more like a tunnel than a plaza.

Storm over Manhattan

The moment I saw flashes outside my window, I grabbed my 5D with 16-35mm 2.8L, remote and tripod. I wanted to create a time lapse, so each frame had to be fast enough shutter to allow enough frames, rather than low ISO and long shutter speeds. Each frame is ISO 400, f/13 at 5.6 seconds. The view is out my balcony in Fort Lee, NJ.
