We had fantastic time getting to know this lovely couple during their Engagement Portrait session in New York City. We started out in the neighborhood, where Jelena and Arun lived, capturing them in a very familiar environment of streets, architecture and even graffiti walls just around the corner of their apartment building. Just before this image was created, Arun told us that he has some Salsa dancing background, and we asked him to show off his best moves! Just love the couple's connection, emotions, movement and vivid colors of this photograph!
Here is what Arun had to share about this experience: "We booked an additional engagement photo session in NYC with them. The photographs they provided here were amazing. We photographed in two locations - Central Park and our local neighborhood in Soho. When we saw our photographs were were blown away. They turned a simple walk in our neighborhood into fantastic photo opportunities using everyday things we walk past like bicycles, billboards and graphite walls into breath taking photographs. One of the photos, we so amazing it won an international award!!"
