Jay + Paul | Engagement | Prospect Park, Brooklyn, NY

Remember the wedding of Emily and Shir?  Well, Jay and Paul are their friends and attended that wedding.  And Natalia and I are really happy that Jay and Paul wanted us to capture their wedding next month – because… This will be our first Same-Sex Legal Wedding!  In fact, what’s even more exciting is that Jay and Paul are planning an entire wedding extravaganza week – with 4 different events and parties spanning from New York City to Boston.  And I will get to be a part of 3 of those events :).  Needless to say, these guys are fantastic and have a large, supportive community of family and friends.

Jay is a writer of several books, with his newest one coming out in October.  He is also a scholar, an activist and is running for local office.  You should check out his website as well as his organization, Nehirim: GLBT Jewish Culture and Spirituality.  Paul also has quite an impressive list of accomplishments, has worked for MIT and Harvard and is currently the head of fundraising research at Mt. Sinai.  I would say, this is one brilliant couple :).

We did the engagement shoot in Prospect Park.  Last time I photographed a session here, there was a torrential downpour and I was grateful for the perfect weather and beautiful light this time around :).  Jay insisted that he is extremely un-photogenic and I, of course, loved proving him wrong ;)!  Because really… this doesn’t look un-photogenic to me at all …
