Home to iconic sites such as the Empire State Building, Times Square, the Statue of Liberty, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art — to name a few — New York City shines and dazzles in every way with its fast-paced lifestyle. This premiere gateway’s global influence to art, culture, fashion and finance makes it a prime hub of fresh ideas and innovations. No wonder that our darling duo, Kaiser and Karen, chose this enchanting city as the location for their pre-wedding photo shoot. Together with their photographer Benjie Tiongco, they have toured the Big Apple — from the best spots to the secret nooks — to have the most enticing and diverse destination e-sesh.
Here’s what Benjie Tionco has to say about their NYC experience:
“Kaiser and Karen are no strangers here. They’ve traveled a couple of times and it remains as one of their favourite destinations, making it the perfect venue for their pre wedding photos. Instead of the usual schedule, they booked us for two days. There’s just so much to see here that one day is not enough to visit the best spots.
For day 1, We chose to start with the places that are unpopular with tourists but are well loved by local New Yorkers too. We were first at Central Park which is at the heart of Manhattan. Who would’ve thought that a huge land sprawling with thousands of trees can be found right in the middle of an urban jungle? Then there’s lower Manhattan where SoHo and Little Italy are. After a quick bite at Lombardi’s, New York’s first Pizza, we continued south to see two iconic bridges that connect Brooklyn and Manhattan. Being on the other side of the city gave us the best view to watch the sun set behind its towering buildings.”
Oh, your day’s surely about to get better with this contemporary, chic pre-wedding set… Enjoy!
