Joliesa at the Rivington

I found Joliesa on Facebook years ago, and we’ve since shared many sexy photo sessions over the years, from Maryland to New York, all the way to Mexico too. Here’s a little glimpse of our fun in New York at the Hotel on Rivington, one of my favorite locations.


Angels at the Rivington

This was one of my favorite sessions just because of how easy the setup was, allowing me to enjoy more time directing and interacting with the Angels rather than fussing with the equipment. The only lighting was a Stellar ring light, Canon 5D Mark II, and a Canon 40mm pancake lens.


Carmen + Vibhor

I was very happy that this couple introduced me to the beautiful Watkins Glen State Park in Ithaca, New York. It’s just a stunning walk through, and I can’t wait to shoot there again.


Venus + Rick

I’ve known Venus for years, so it’s really not a job when you’ve enjoyed photographing someone for so long, except now they’ll be wearing a sexy wedding dress and I get to follow her for the whole day. We started the morning session at a local park where we discovered ginormous white bags which resembled marshmellows, time to grab giant sticks right? I still remember how incredibly hot and humid that day was, but when you’re enjoying the session, the weather won’t stop you. The wedding took place at the amazing Blue Hill Farm, where all the food is grown and prepared on site. Talk about farm to kitchen! The beef was from their grounds, and the eggs were laid fresh the same day. The kitchen was so professional they wouldn’t allow vendors to cross the room without a supervisor leading us across a twenty feet walkway. No photos allowed in the kitchen! I honestly want to go back for another meal some day.


Sexy Santas

Don’t you love holiday parties? I’ll take any holiday as an excuse to throw a bunch of ladies together in one room. See the rest of the photos on my Facebook!

Kyla at the Salon

We were a little eager to get started shooting Kyla even before her hair was ready, but don’t worry, I bribed the model with some Haribo gummy bears. The photos were taken at HeadQuarterz in New York, and makeup by Gil Aldrin. Don’t miss out on the sexy video below for some behind the scenes.


Rella At The Beach

It’s always fun to shoot at a secluded beach without a single soul to disturb you. You can run around free and have the whole beach to yourself. One of my favorite recent discoveries is a beach in New York that was closed due to Hurrican Sandy and the abandoned structures were filled with sand. I may be sneaking in there more during off season. Phiorella did an amazing job being playful and sexy, and her gorgeous long hair makes you believe she is a beach goddess.


Annie & Xin

Annie and Xin wanted to capture an old China feel, and what better place than Chinatown in New York City. The poses required for this theme is different from your typical affection-filled engaegment shoots. There is a mood of conservative coyness, a silence, and a hidden emotional story that doesn’t need words or public affection to express. It was a fun experiment and I encourage more couples to engage in themed sessions.


Amy + Jeff

Another wedding at the Metropolitan Building in Long Island City, with Amy and Jeff.


Last Friday Night

Every year I like to create a group project. This year’s theme is "Tony’s Angels." Yes, I am a very possessive artist who claims my subjects as mine and do with it as I please. The secret is to treat them right and you will get everything you ask for in return. I have hand picked every one of these Angels who I’ve loved working with and getting to know. Each Angel has a unique personality and they all mesh together like a crazy fun family. Don’t be fooled by their sweet looks, when you put them all together, all the perversions and naughty thoughts come out and play. Are they really Angels? That’s for me to know.

I introduce you to the Angels at our very first slumber party, filled with candy, pillows, and a very happy Panda. Every family has fights, but we eventually kiss and makeup. We might have gone overboard…

Many thanks to Jonathan for his amazing penthouse location, enigMatt for the behind-the-scene video coming soon, Jenn Kang for her amazing makeup skills, and Ruby for pimping out Panda to us. For behind the scene photos, follow me on Instagram @tonyyangphotography or Facebook.

Angela: Goddess of the group with a sweet and soft face, she may be the only real innocent Angel!
Amy: Not only is she a mixed Angel, she brings both the sweet and naughty sides out.
Christiana: Playful bunny who brings the energy and life into the family, and her looks rock our socks!
Phiorella: The drop dead gorgeous Peruvian Angel that always wants to come out and play.
Kyla: The youngest but boldest Angel. Nothing will stop her from being sexy!
Kyla Gray: Bombshell Angel with a killer body that makes you want to beg for more.
