Portrait Shoot | Ellane & Louis ~ New York, New York

This has to be one of my favourite shoots ever. What’s not to love? A stylish couple, amazing light and the best city in the world.  When Ellane asked if I would be happy to photograph her and Louis during their vacation in New York, I jumped at the chance.  I love this place, and it was the most fantastic shoot to research, as not only did Ellane and Louis want to explore all the iconic NY landmarks, but they wanted it to take place over two days.  And so that’s exactly what we did.

Locations we visited included the Guggenheim, Central Park, Grand Central Station, Flat Iron building and district, Times Square and possibly my favourite….Brooklyn Bridge at sunset.  People might label Paris as the city of love, but it’s New York that makes my heart skip a beat.

Ellane was attended to by Sachiko throughout the shoot, who not only is an incredible hair and make-up artist based in Brooklyn, but is also a truly lovely person.  She made an already-beautiful Ellane even more gorgeous.  I’m a very lucky photographer.

There are quite a few images so you might want to fix yourself a cuppa before settling down for some eye candy…
