Prior to their Newport RI wedding, Nikki and Greg wanted an epic engagement photo shoot in New York City starting at the Top of the Rock.  So that is exactly what I gave them! We met at the NYAC where we confirmed wardrobe selections and a pop of color for Nikki with a deep red lipstick.  Then we headed out the door on our adventure.  I have lived in NYC for almost 15 years, so I thrive on the energy you immediately feel upon hitting the streets.  I think that is a common thread I share with Nikki and Greg, which is why we “crushed” their engagement shoot.  I knew the vibe they were craving, so we went big straight away.

The Top of The Rock did not disappoint and wowed us with incredible sweeping vistas of New York City. It gave me goosies to see Nikki and Greg dancing above the city they love from above Rock Center. Grand views of Central Park landscape sprawled ahead of us to the north, while stunning views of  landmarks  such as the Empire State Building and all of downtown NYC, lay to the south.  What more could you ask for as an incredible backdrop? Next, walking uptown, we made sure to hit the infamous “LOVE” sculpture on 55th St.  Then, dodging a few tourists along the way, we successfully made it through Central Park.

Nikki and Greg, thank you for trusting me to capture this moment for you in my favorite city. I can’t wait to photograph your wedding at Belle Mer next year!
