Back in May 2015 my son & I set off to America for a month to visit my sister. Whilst there we were lucky enough to be treated to 2 nights in Niagara & 3 nights in New York. It had always been a dream of mine to see the city that never sleeps. Now I had the chance. Statue Of Liberty, Empire State Building, China Town, Little Italy, Central Park. It was amazing.
At the bottom of this page you will find a link to my gallery showing some of the images I captured. I was determined to photograph things in my own creative way. Not just take pictures of the famous buildings and areas but capture the life and atmosphere. The patterns and design of the architecture.
My favourite picture from these was taken on the very famous Brooklyn Bridge. Whist walking across I noticed a bride and groom having pictures taken by someone who had quite a basic camera. Most probably a friend of theirs. Others were stopping to take pictures on their phones. I couldn’t resist sneaking a couple of shots. I approached them, introduced myself, gave them a business card and explained I was a wedding photographer from England. I told them that should they want me to I would delete any pictures I had taken or if they would prefer I would be more than happy to email any pictures to them. The groom, Ivan, asked if I would like to take some more. It was a wedding photographers dream come true. A bride and groom on one of the most famous bridges in the world. I jumped at the chance. My only wish is that I had more time and my specific wedding camera and equipment with me. I leave these at home when travelling. I cannot run the risk of loss or damage and have other cameras for different projects. But I am still happy with what I was able to achieve. And so glad I bumped into Ivan and Tamara on their wedding day on Brooklyn Bridge. I emailed the picture below to them and received this lovely email response back form them:
Thank you very much, it is absolutely stunning! We figured it was going to be a great shot, and it ended up being a lot greater.. Thanks again for taking the time and got that awesome picture of us and keep up that amazing work of yours.
