Photo Show: Pie Level BQE

Here is a quick update on the collective photography show that I mentioned the other day. Re-cap: I am part of an awesome NYC photography collective called Photodrifting and last Saturday we had our first collective photography exhibit.

As expected, I really loved seeing what the other photodrifters came up with. It was a great collection of different perspectives on the BQE. The gallery was packed with fun interesting people and I had a blast.

As well as the photographs, the exhibit featured a DVD with moving images representing the drifting feel characteristic of Photodrifting.com.

Thank you so much Gabriela Alva (curator for the show) and Jon-Paul Rodriguez for organizing such a a great show!

Lisa and JD's Engagement Shots

In their very first date, Lisa and JD stopped by the beautiful Bethesda Fountain in Central Park. Things must have gone very well from there because some time later JD took Lisa back and proposed! ...So when it came to pick a location for their engagement shoot, the choice was clear: we met on the Park for a nice April afternoon engagement session.

After a quick hot chocolate at the Boat House, we headed towards the place where it all started for them. It was so nice to photograph them there! As well a couple of closer shots, I stood back and let them do their thing, which was really fun to watch (they are*so* cute together!Lisa even tried to pick JD up!... you were so close, Lisa :-))... We continued walking through to some of their favorite spots and ended our shoot at Poets Walk, where we all had celebratory hot dogs (which was the last thing missing to make this a perfect afternoon!)

Don't they look so happy together? Congratulations on your engagement, Lisa and JD!

Coming up: Collective Photo Exhibition: Pie Level BQE

For those of you in New York this coming Saturday, you are invited to attend the opening of a collective exhibit that I am part of this coming Saturday at the Eye Level BQE gallery in Brooklyn.

I am very excited about this project. I love the work of other photographers in the collective. These are the folks at Photodrifting, an amazing collective that I joined last year. To add to that, the project itself was refreshing: pictures representing the BQE on foot. It is so great to stop, observe and to see a lot of beauty in the very urban streets right by the express way. As Gabriela Alva, the curator of the exhibit, put it, a great exercise for the eye!

The exhibit will be opening this coming Saturday, April 18th and will be on until May 10th. Hope you can chek it out!

Shakima and Luis's Engagement Session

Earlier this week, I met with lovely Shakima and Luis for their engagement shoot. Both Shakima and Luis are true New Yorkers and are planning a very New York wedding, so they thought Central Park was the perfect spot. (I am making a lot of trips to Central Park these days... but I can really understand how so many couples go for that place!).

Shakima and Luis are a beautiful couple and it was not hard to catch some very cute moments with them. They braved the cold afternoon by keeping each other warm with a lot of cuddles and kisses (you can really see how much they love each other!).

Here are some initial shots that I sent them as teasers.

Congratulations on your engagement, Shakima and Luis!
