I always tell my couples to focus less on the background and location of an engagement session and more on each other. Obviously, an interesting location inspires me to take better photos, but I honestly don’t care if we are in a city street or a forest—all I want to do is capture the emotion between two people in love. The background is bonus. That said, I am a art fan and love visiting museums and cultural centers when I travel. So the ability to blend my admiration for art and photography together is a wonderful thing. One of my first engagement sessions was at Storm King, a massive sculpture garden located in mid-state New York, and it turned out fabulously. When Jackie and Keith contacted me to shoot their wedding in Princeton, I immediately thought they would like an e-session in the heart of the city, but Jackie had other ideas. She recommended the Grounds for Sculpture, an art park teeming with different size pieces from dozens of different artists. The place was amazing. We spent an entire afternoon wondering aimlessly through the gardens, capturing images that embellished and incorporated the whimsical creations scattered throughout the park. In this case, the location might not have been as important as the emotion, but it sure did help us have a ton of fun.
