Licet & Daniel – Central Park, New York – photo session

I met up with Licet and Daniel in Central Park for their engagement photo session. From there we explored a little bit of the Upper West Side, visiting the areas they know, as a backdrop to their photos.

Licet and Daniel, I love your energy. Thank you for making it such a fun experience photographing you.  See you in a few months at your wedding.

I absolutely love your portrait work and aspire to make mine even half as good. The sharpness, color, and energy in all of your photos is amazing. As a budding portrait photographer, I really appreciate you sharing your techniques with the world. I look forward to seeing and learning more.

Wow, Neil. These are great. I find reading your blogs on the actual shoot and how you did these shots including your thought process very informative.

One question about using on camera flash outdoors for fill, do you use any type of diffuser, or do you use bare flash dialled back so it doesn’t over-power?

Many thanks,
