[Engagement] Ashley & Ryan – Long Island City, NY

As a professional wedding photographer, I’ve seen my fair share of hotel rooms – but none, I surmise, quite look like the ones at the Paper Factory Hotel in Long Island City. Although winter had certainly overstayed its welcome this season, we kept ourselves plenty cozy for this fun, indoor engagement session (we did sneak out for a few outdoor shots, while trying our best not to catch pneumonia!). We helped ourselves to (several) Old Fashioned’s, some music to set the mood (Tupac, anyone?), and more natural light and decor any photographer could ever possibly ask for. Did I forget to mention: this hotel just absolutely rocks?
