Fall Photography Fun in the Park

Fall Photography Fun in the Park

A few days ago the weather was disrespectful giving us 30-something degrees in NYC. I was extremely happy the sun came out on Sunday because I’m not mentally ready for parka season. Since I was photo ready and the weather was nice, it was the perfect day to have some fall photography fun with my new Sony Alpha a6000. Even though I initially wanted to take the Canon route, I...

Wedding Prep at the Sheraton Brooklyn

In my last post, I shared my excitement for my friend’s wedding. A few weeks before the big day, we had to make a change of venue for getting ready; our initial venue wasn’t finished with renovations so the bridal party stayed at the Sheraton Brooklyn. We chose this hotel because it was close drive to the church where the ceremony and reception was held, public transportation was walking distance,...

Thrill The World NYC 2014

Thrill the World NYC

I never grew up celebrating Halloween, but this year I went to the annual “Trill the World NYC” flash mob in Coney Island, Brooklyn. This was also a tribute to the late king of pop, Michael Jackson with people dancing to his mega-hit “Thriller”.
