Let me whisk you away into the heart of the concrete jungle, where love knows no bounds. Shanay & Tony, a dynamic duo from the land Down Under, jetted off to their favorite city on Earth – New York. This city holds a special place in their hearts, having witnessed the inception of their love story under the twinkling lights of the Lotte New York Palace's Christmas tree, an iconic spot where Tony popped the question three years ago. However, the pandemic had other plans, forcing the couple to postpone their grand celebration.
Fast forward three years, and here we are, ready to turn the pages of their love story into a visual masterpiece. As their trusted NYC elopement photographer, I had the honor of orchestrating this intimate celebration.
The day kicked off with a heartwarming First Look beneath the same Christmas tree that witnessed their engagement. The joy and anticipation in their eyes were palpable, setting the tone for the day. From there, we ventured into the chic streets of Soho, a neighborhood that effortlessly complemented Shanay & Tony's style. It was a pleasure to capture the genuine moments of laughter and love as they strolled through the iconic cobblestone streets.
A pitstop at Antique Garage, a cozy bar with vintage charm, added a touch of warmth to their day. As the glasses clinked and laughter filled the air, it was evident that this was more than just a photoshoot; it was a celebration of love.
The final leg of our journey led us back to the elegant embrace of the Lotte New York Palace, where their love story had unfolded years ago. The New York Public Library, standing tall in its grandeur, became the backdrop for more enchanting shots. The timeless architecture echoed the everlasting love shared by Shanay & Tony.
And so, under the city lights and the timeless beauty of New York, we wrapped up a day filled with laughter, love, and the promise of forever.
