Vonny + Brandon E-session | Chinatown, NYC

Vonny and Brandon are a Brooklyn couple that Michele and I were thrilled to begin working with a few months ago. We immediately recognized that they were the type of couple we wanted to work with after our first meeting. It’s difficult to explain just how we knew that; it was an ineffable combination of just the right amount of enthusiasm, vision, and rapport, which we established right away.

All couples that book my service receive a complimentary Engagement or E-session, which I think is an critical element of my service because it accomplishes two things. It gives all of us, Michele , myself, and couples the opportunity to get cozy taking pictures before their wedding. Secondly, it gives me the chance to engage  with couples on a personal level and build a relationship based on trust.

This summer really was a scorcher, and nobody looked forward to a humid and sweaty photo session. That”s why we scheduled our session toward the end of the summer/beginning of fall, to capitalize on the somewhat cooler weather to be expected. Although this session will still happen several months before the wedding, we decided that it’d be best to capitalize on what the season offers in photographic opportunities.
The red thread of fate is an East Asian belief originating from Chinese legend and is also used in Japanese legend. According to this myth, the gods tie an invisible red string around the ankles of those that are destined to meet each other in a certain situation or help each other in a certain way. Often, in Japanese culture, it is thought to be tied around the little finger.The two people connected by the red thread are destined lovers, regardless of time, place, or circumstance. This magical cord may stretch or tangle, but never break.I enjoy working with couples on the planning of their E-session, especially when they bring ideas of their own to the table. Vonny was inspired by, and wanted to incorporate the theme of the red thread of fate – which exists
within many Asian cultures. According to the myth, the gods have tied an invisible red thread around the ankle or pinky finger of each person, connecting to them to their partner. The thread can be tangled, though never broken.

Much like another E-session I shot last year, we decided to incorporate an outfit change mid-session. Vonny and Brandon changed into more casual attire for the 2nd half of the session. While it’s not always logistically feasible to have an outfit change, we were glad we did because it got quite cool later that evening.

My love of portrait photography at the core stems from my curiosity and interest in people’s lives. Being a New Yorker puts me in touch with so many people at any given moment that it fuels my curiosity like no other place on the east coast probably could. As Brooklyn wedding photographers, Michele and I have experience serving a diverse clientele which continues to increase at an exponential rate every year.
I love meeting other New Yorkers, and it takes no time before many of our clients are getting along just as old friends might. It’s during Engagement sessions and weddings when Michele and I shine brightest, as we love exploring the dynamic between couples through photography. We look forward to working with ALL couples to make you look natural and your best!
