Trang | New York City Casual Fashion Shoot | Bryant Park NYPL

People Portrait

A couple of weeks ago my friend Trang, who you may remember as the florist at Rosa and Bobby’s Atlanta Vietnamese wedding, was visiting New York City for a mini vacation so we met up one day to hang out and suffer in front of my camera on a casual model/fashion shoot! It was actually a perfect day weather-wise to be out in the city as Spring weather was here (unlike this week’s rather cold chill for mid-April), so we met up at Union Square before wandering around the area by NYU before grabbing some lunch at Momofuku. After a nice lunch, and enying Trang’s choice of the cold noodles which looked amazing, we headed a bit uptown so I could run a quick errand near Times Square. Since we were in Midtown anyways we walked over to Bryant Park and the New York Public Library to see a bit more of the cultural side of New York City rather than just the touristy areas of Times Square.

This is our fun behind the scenes photo at Bryant Park, since this is New York City, there are people everywhere haha. Trang really got some great air in her jump there though :). After this we walked over to the other side of the park and explored the NYPL to take in some of the amazing architecture inside, and for Trang to do a quick change of clothes to show off those tattoos ;). I’m not totally sure you’re allowed to take photos inside the library, but all of the tourists are taking snaps with their iPhones and selfie sticks so we just went for it and grabbed a few photos here and there in between checking out the rooms and the exhibits.

The awkwardness continued on the front steps of the NYPL with just some fun shots of Trang in the city that never sleeps :).

Thank you so much Trang for hanging out for an afternoon in the city with me, grabbing some lunch and coffee, and being a quick model in Midtown Manhattan :)

Hijab-ista Fashion Shoot in Midtown Atlanta | Published in Zuleykha Magazine
A non-wedding post to mix things up on the blog! This is more of an expanded post from previous contest announcement with Hijab-ista a few posts ago. Now that the photos were published on Zuleykha Magazine, I can share some more of them here too! More about the shoot, we had previously planned to shoot in the evening "Golden Hour" when the sun was lower in the sky for some of that awesome warm light. Of course this being Atlanta, the weather had other plans for us with imminent rain on the forecast. Our model, BabyLailaLov, was only in town for the day before they all headed off to another show themselves. So we had to make this shoot happen ...

Von Arx Family Photos | McDaniel Farm Park | Atlanta Portrait Photography
I felt like I needed to blog this shoot this week because I'm knee-deep in wedding video editing and won't have any mid-week Atlanta wedding photography update blog posts until next Monday =). A couple of weeks ago I had the privilege to photograph the beautiful Von Arx family at McDaniel Farm Park, a location that I love and was just at a couple days earlier taking wedding photos! Lindsay and Matt are great photographers in their own right, it's always an honor to be asked to do something for a fellow photographer. Even though families and kids aren't exactly my speciality, I hope I did them justice! Of course, when you have three beautiful ...
