We met Obele and Jason at the Red Lion Inn bridal expo in March. Obele is from the south shore, so they are getting married here in MA, but she and Jason live in Brooklyn. When they asked us if we’d be willing to do their engagement shoot in NYC, we jumped at the chance. Obele told us of a little-known place in the East River called Roosevelt Island. It is nestled under the Queensboro Bridge, and accessible by car from Queens, or by air tram from Manhattan. Obele lived on Roosevelt Island when she and Jason met, and they ended up living there together for a time as well. We spent a gorgeous Saturday there with them, in what felt like a whole other world than Manhattan. We’re so happy that we got to spend the day with Obele and Jason (and got a history lesson out of it too!), and came home with amazing photos of a great couple. And Jason didn’t think he was photogenic 😉
Can’t wait to see you guys again at the Red Lion in April!
