[Engagement] Sylvia & Joe – Brooklyn, NY

I first met Sylvia a few years ago, at another wedding where I was second-shooting for another photographer. I thought I’d never see this crowd again (especially since I was no longer in Baltimore), but we forget one simple fact: every Asian person in the NYC area on earth is somehow connected to one another by no more than 2 degrees of separation (through unicorn magic, I presume).  We did manage to reconnect after the wedding, and we did manage to prove that the Asian community is just as teeny-teeny-tiny as we suspected all along. In any case, I was very humbled and flattered when we received Sylvia and Joe’s inquiry. Afterall, I was just the second-shooter when we first met. I couldn’t possibly take the booking without the primary shooter‘s blessings. But long story short, everything worked out and everybody’s a-ok :). At the conclusion of their engagement session, I have to admit: Sylvia and Joe are an adorable couple. Throw in a fluffy dog, and we’re all practically doomed to explode from all this cuteness overload. We started their session at a nearby neighborhood park.
