One of the most common requests we get from our clients is to help them create images that are as un-cheesey as possible. While this means different things for different people, the consensus usually revolves around everyone’s shared aversion towards prom-like images – and this sentiment is shared by yours truly. This meant we had to make these engagement sessions as fun as possible, and we do that by incorporating their interests into the shoot. The problem here was: where the heck do we find an empty soccer field in the middle of New York City? But we’ll get into that in a little bit :). Our engagement session started that day in the Flat Iron District…with a stare-down contest between Matt and a squirrel.
