Photo Scouting Trip To NYC

Every few years I decide to take a weekend trip to New York City to create amazing images for my portfolio marketing. August 2019 was my most recent trip, and I was extremely happy with the various photo ideas I came up with. Since I have been to NYC three other times, I spent a lot of time on this trip finding new and interesting locations that would be beautiful for use as wedding photography locations and engagement photo spots in NYC.

For my 2 day trip into the city (Manhattan), I chose to stay in Times Square, as my favorite hotel, The Knickerbocker Hotel is located there. This hotel is high-class and expensive, but the central location and quality of everything at the hotel cannot be beat. The staff is excellent, and I love photographing the property! Give it a shot next time you visit New York City! Find it at 42nd Street and Broadway.

I spent the entire time in Manhattan except for a 2.5 hour Circle Line Tour called "Best of NYC Cruise." This $44 cruise departs Pier 83 (42nd Street) at the West Side Highway. The tour encircles Manhattan on the East River and the Hudson River while passing the Freedom Tower, Statue Of Liberty, Brooklyn Bridge, Upper West Side, Harlem, Upper East Side, The Vessel, and so much more. Taking this cruise will give you unprecedented views of Manhattan, Brooklyn, Roosevelt Island, Governors Island, and Queens.

The photos below include lower Manhattan, U.S.S. Intrepid, United Nations, Freedom Tower and more!

Some of the beautiful locations I discovered for wedding and engagement photos are:

  • Central Park (low lying pond just north of The Plaza)

  • Grand Central Terminal (busy all the time)

  • Park Avenue art installation

  • Circle Line Tour sightseeing boat (tickets required)

  • Times Square

  • New York Public Library (outside only)

  • The Vessel (tickets required)

  • Roosevelt Island

  • Governors Island

  • Radio City Music Hall (outside only)

I am a professional wedding photographer based in Dayton, Ohio. Wedding photography and engagement photography are my specialties. I am consistently ranked as one of the best wedding photographers in Dayton and Cincinnati. In my free time, I am a well-known Dayton, Cincinnati, and Columbus concert photographer shooting for publications, bands, and myself. I also love creating beautiful and dynamic travel photography.

LIVE Concert At Rose Music Center At The Heights 2019


ALT Imate Concert Tour With Bush

September 4, 2019, Our Lady Peace opened for Bush and Live at The Rose Music Center At The Heights in Huber Heights, Ohio. The show was nearly sold out, and the crowd was in a collective great mood. Here are a few images of Live on stage for the Dayton area audience. It was a great concert on a cool summer evening. Thanks to CincyMusic.com for allowing me to shoot for them!
