terence > engagement < britney // new york city

3am nachos and pizza with these two FTW.

I travelled up from washington dc to new york to meet Terence and Britney for some engagement photos! I’m shooting their wedding in Costa Rica next spring, but we all thought it would be a great idea to work together before hand. Also, NYC provided such a diverse and amazing set of backdrops that will be totally different than Costa Rica. It’s always nice to get away from DC and shoot in totally different environments.
