So, when someone says, lets do an engagement shoot at the bodega called Mexico 2000, what do you say?? Um, Yeahhhh! That is so unique, that I couldn't pass it up. When Carly and Andrew came to me about working together, we met for a drink and I knew this would be fun! They are both creative people, who are up for anything, which is how they knew they were meant for each other. Essentially, on their second date, they had one of those, lets just get some tacos at the bodega and explore our neighborhood dates. This shoot is a recreation of that day, wherein they met for a quick bite, and walked around until they ended up at a small park in South Williamsburg. These are two people who know how to have a good time in any situation, because they are both creative's with a zest for life! I couldn't be happier with how this turned out, because when I was first thinking about how to shoot this, I knew that there would be endless possibilities for color backdrops, and fun details. It also feels like we really are on a date with them, but in a John Hughes movie about 2 people falling in love in New York. I mean what is more New York than a Bodega!? The idea of combining the elements of high brow and low brow aesthetics is always interesting, and that's how we chose what they were going to wear, as a contrast to the backdrop of this colorful bodega. Congrats to these two love birds, and wishing you all the best!
