Adventures with Jenny: Chinatown, NYC
Earlier this fall, Jenny and I – after a delicious meal of soup dumplings – explored the vibrant beauty that is Chinatown. Jenny was rocking a leather jack, rock t-shirt, and maybe the best damn skirt I’ve ever photographed. Seriously – every movement photographed like magic – don’t believe me? Take a look below!
One of the most fascinating locations in Chinatown was an area colloquially called The Bloody Angle, which I – of course – had to go look up and see what it was about. (If you don’t want to ruin your day, you can skip looking it up.) Despite it’s haunting history, Doyers Street is a bustling hub of restaurants, cafes and shops and if you go at the right time of day, the light cascades off the buildings causing a warm glow for portraits.
As we worked our way through the streets we stopped for some poses at The Good Sort, winding our way past the open market carts and took a break for some bubble tea at Boba Guys, which I HIGHLY recommend. Jenny got the ever-healthy Matcha, while I went with the classic Thai Iced Tea.
Overall, our Chinatown visit was another successful frolic that keeps inspiring us for our future adventures!
Behind the scenes
As a bonus to our normal portrait session, this shoot I took some videos and compiled a behind the scenes video. Enjoy!
