On my last day in New York I had a photo session with Australian couple Mel and Andrew, who have now lived there for 5 years. They’ve had their share of ups and downs of the personal variety in recent times. Things are now looking up for them, so this marks a wonderful instalment in the New York City chapter of their lives.
It was my pleasure to photograph them in this grand city, a city that never stops, that excites and delights them. They decided they would like their images taken on the Brooklyn Bridge. It was a rather wild afternoon, filled with tourists and an impending storm. We managed these photos just as the weather was threatening to close in.
I opted for this rich, antique look – it visually reminds me of a classic New York jazz feel transposed to modern day images.
Mel and Andrew, thank you so much for your time to create these images and I wish you every success and joy for your time in New York City.
