[Engagement] Winny & Conan – Prospect Park in Brooklyn, NY

This post seems to be apropos for the weather we’re getting today in the NYC area. While most couples tend to shy away from rain for their engagement sessions, our couples this season haven’t had much of a choice in the matter; it’s pretty much been raining non-stop all season long. But in good Ben Lau fashion, I reassured them that lighting is pretty awesome in the rain, and that Channing Tatum only kisses his leading ladies when it’s raining outside anyway. And yes, I just referred to myself in the 3rd person. As we tell all our clients, the focus during portait sessions will always be the couples themselves. The shooting environment and conditions are important, albeit secondary to all the love between two people that we’re going to capture into their images. Lucky for us, Winny & Conan had plenty (of love!) to go around :). Take THAT, rain-gods!
