Dayna & Chris @ Long beach Boardwalk Engagement pictures
Ever heard of Long beach boardwalk in long beach NY. A very famous boardwalk that was destroyed by sandy nearly 2 1/2 years ago . I remember it was pretty bad. Take a look at some of the images that I pulled off the internet to show you the progress that NY has made. This place is not nicer then ever and this is the reason why Dayna and Chris decided to have their engagement portrait session here.
Regardless it was my second time back since the storm. I honestly didn’t even know how nice it was until I showed up. It was full of tourist and different people who were there just to enjoy a beautiful sunny june day . As I got to know Chris & Dayna a little more during our conversation , I learned of Chris’s recent back surgery so I couldn’t really ask him to pick Dayna up or do the usual piggy-back rides. It didn’t really matter at this point because Chris and Dayna had amazing body chemistry. They were really into each-other and less into the photos which made it a little bit easier for me . Although there were tons of people at the boardwalk & beach we tried to shoot in such a way that the photos was composed of just the two of them . Their is an entry fee of 12$ per person. So if you are wondering or want to stroll the Long Beach sand and water, be prepared to have 12$ on you. No credit cards or debit cards . I took them on a stroll on the actual beach. We took some portraits by the rocks and then i proposed this idea . I asked them if they were ok to go into the water and they agreed. This made for some amazing photos. I actually fell into the water because one of the waves snuck up behind me and made me loose my equilibrium , but the camera was fine. It was worth it for the shot.
