Jordan and Troy’s Fun Urban Couple’s Session

This past September, my college roommate Melody and I decided to take a gal’s trip to the Big Apple to spend quality time together and explore. As usual, I brought my camera and knew I wanted to photograph a couple while in NYC. I advertised for a couple to model for me in Central Park but no one took my bait. I started to become discouraged, but knew if I kept reaching out to friends, I would eventually find a couple to pose for me.

To my surprise, one of my college friends who lived in the apartment above mine, Instagram messaged me saying he had a friend who would love to model for me with her boyfriend.

FINALLY!

I was so ecstatic and immediately started messaging this couple. I’m pretty sure they thought I was slightly crazy for having them ride from Hoboken, NJ to SOHO during rush hour but Jordan and Troy made it and met me randomly outside of and H&M in lower Manhattan.

Right away we clicked and the magical images came to life as the beautiful couple posed for me. For about 45minutes Melody and I took Jordan and Troy around SOHO and snapped photos while standing in the middle of busy NYC streets.

At the end of the night, I reflected on the session that had just occurred and I was so grateful for the community of followers who helped me find a couple. More importantly, I realized how thankful I am for Jordan and Troy who were willing to meet a total stranger on the corner of a NYC street and let her take their pictures for almost an hour. 

Now I can officially check that dream off my list. WOOHOO! I have officially photographed a couple in NYC and now I can say I’m looking forward to possibly shooting more in the Big Apple; maybe even a wedding!
