This NY postnup session is a good reminder for newlyweds and a good tip for soon-to-weds on how our wedding suppliers can eventually become our friends – if they aren’t yet.
Michael Galang of Icebox Imaging told his couple Ron & Monica that they were visiting New York and suggested that he shoot them for a postnup session.
“Ron & I were really glad he thought of it because it was a one of a kind experience. Our postnup session was really, really fun and memorable! Being with Mike (who was also one of our photographers before for our prenup & wedding), his wife Cherry and my best friend, Camille in NYC and Brooklyn made the 2-day shoot more fun! We really enjoyed it!”
3 locations, 2 boroughs
The couple took advantage of the opportunity to have their postnup sessions in other places in NYC since they’ve already had their prenup session in iconic Big Apple locations such as Times Square and Central Park.
This time, they found themselves venturing into Brooklyn for one of their set ups. Their first two setups were still located in Manhattan, which they chose for specific reasons.
They chose the Grand Central Station precisely for its popularity as one of the most recognized landmarks in the world. Who wouldn’t want to? It’s such a classic place for being the setting for so great moments on film. Their outfits add a romantic twist to the majestic backdrop the station provides despite all the tourists & commuters milling around the area.
From Midtown Manhattan they scooted over to the streets of West Village in the Lower Manhattan area. It’s been their dream to have their photos taken along the streets of NYC. This was the perfect spot for them since it’s not really crowded compared to the other streets in the city. I particularly love the Sesame Street vibe of one of their photos by the steps of an apartment building.
Then, from Manhattan, Mike took the two to a unique location he found in the Brooklyn borough. With its gothic gates and chapel, and the fact that it’s a cemetery, the Greenwood Cemetery was definitely a unique postnup venue.
“This was the most memorable among the 3, not only because of the location but also because of the experience that all of us have been through just to make this shoot happen at this location!”
Hmm, I wonder what those things they had to go through were. I’m pretty sure it didn’t involve any walking zombies, though. Whatever it is, looking through the shots, no worry can be seen in their faces. If anything, it seems they were also able to internalize the gothic feel to match with the location – in a romantic way, that is.
For those thinking of having their own postnup session, the couple has a simple, useful tip.
