dan + kim are getting married on the coast of rhode island next summer. i was pretty sure i liked them before i met them based on this fact alone. (i happen to adore the coast. + adore rhode island... so much that I dedicated a whole blog post to a visit up there here) they live in Boston but came down to NYC for their engagement shoot... while I have my go to favorite spots for shoots, I'm always happy + excited to come across a new location or two in this case. Vesuvio Bakery was Kim's brainchild... it's such a perfect photo backdrop... the 2nd was a smaller relatively unknown street in lower manhattan I'd gotten wind of + was thrilled that Dan + Kim were down to go check it out with me sight unseen. It officially gets named my newest most favoritest street to shoot on in the city... I mean seriously... it's got classic NYC all over it without being too touristy or obvious or overrun with people... A rarity in this city... anyways, here they are!
