Capturing romance in New York City…it never gets stale. Whether it’s the backdrop of central park juxtaposed by midtown skyscrapers, the cobblestone streets of the meatpacking district or the stylish stoops of the West Village homes, NYC offers endless places to capture people’s love stories and Nilay and Annika have a good one. They are a fun couple from Texas who made a long distance relationship work for several years while Nilay was in med school. When he settled into a residency in New Jersey, Annika took the plunge and moved out to the city. They spend whatever weekends they can enjoying the NYC night life, and especially love the many foodie and mixology haunts of the West Village. We stopped by Corner Bistro and Barrio 47 for some photos and they were kind enough to buy me a Bistro burger and beer after the shoot and Annika bonded over our love bordering on obsession of Harry Potter. Annika and Nilay are planning a huge, three day wedding celebration for next April including ceremonies for both their Hindu and Catholic faiths. They may have different religious heritage, but they share their Texas roots and gave a nod to their background by wearing cowboy boots for the session. Annika and Nilay: I had so much fun with you two I hope you have an amazing wedding and marriage!!!
