Greg contacted me about taking some online dating photos for his profile, but then we kept getting put off because of the snow. On the day of our shoot, it snowed yet again, and we just said, “Whatever!” and went stomping through the flakes anyway, taking photos around Manhattan, and it ended up being super fun.
We started at his apartment where I took lifestyle photos of him hanging out and drinking tea – his space is awesome and lent itself well to fabulous photos. Then we bundled up and headed out into the snow, stopping by a park just as it really started to come down and blizzard around us. We ducked into Rolfs German restaurant in Gramercy for indoor photos (and potato pancakes and beer, because photography makes you hungry
As a testament to how much fun I usually have on these shoots, someone saw at the two of us running around taking photos in the sleet and approached us.
“Would you two like a photo together?” she asked.
We chuckled and declined (and then I totally regretted it, because it would have been really funny!), but I loved that we looked like friends hanging out and taking photos instead of a stiff, formal photo shoot. It is absolutely the vibe I want when working.
Because I’m a hopeless romantic and can’t help myself: if you’re a single lady scoping these pics and thinking, “Now this is one handsome gentleman and I would like to buy him a drink”, Greg is 37, sweet, smart and fun. Get in touch if you want the connection.
