Lauren Hillary Rocks!

My west coast friends have been so nice to me this year! I hope I can return the favor someday!

About a week ago I received a phone call from bride-to-be Stephani who said Lauren Hillary had referred me. They were looking to have some engagement pictures taken in NYC before their upcoming wedding in California. I said, "well, it's awfully cold outside, but if you'll brave the weather I will, too!"

Stephani and Anthony wanted to meet me in Madison Square Park which is also the spot where they got engaged. I think it was about 30 degrees, with a brisk breeze blowing, but jackets were not necessary for these two. :)

Good luck with your wedding! Hope you enjoy the show! (click the photo below)

Love Love Love the shot on the subway platform! How did you get the light to look so great? Are you on a tripod (I ask because I can't imagine you using a tripod on an engagement shoot :)

Jen -

Thanks!! You're making it too complicated! :) It's easy. You just need to make sure you D-R-A-G your shutter so you get the blur of the subway. The flash will stop any movement of the couple...

This was shot @ 800 ISO, 1/8th second @ f/4 - holding the camera as steady as possible. Also - bounce your flash off of those nice white subway tiles - nice soft light! :)

Hope that helps!
