Lauren and Jason Engaged.

Every time I photograph couples in wet conditions, I always think of the classic, romantic and rainy weather scenes from movies. I’m sure everyone has heard of “Singin’ in the Rain” but one scene that always comes to mind is Audrey Hepburn and George Peppard’s kissing scene in the movie Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961) (right). I have to admit that I’ve never watched this movie but scenes like this is where I find many of my photographic inspiration in wet weather photo shoots and situations.
For Lauren and Jason’s engagement session, this wet weather condition was met. Perfect weather to be able to pull off these classic shots.
As usual, I start my couples in simple and warmer areas, Chelsea Market which is indoors, to get them use to and comfortable my camera. We spent about 30 minutes inside before heading out to the wet weather. Even outside I mostly keep my couples as dry as possible so we try to find overpasses to be under most of the time. Some of my favorite shots from our wet and rainy adventure below. Congrats to Lauren and Jason and I can’t wait for the wedding.
