For this gorgeous couple’s first anniversary, they wanted to celebrate in a very different way than their wedding, which happened to be in the middle of a tropical storm! Taking to the chic streets of SoHo in NYC, this adorable pair celebrated their first year of happily ever with Flytographer Johnny behind the lens, capturing amazing memories that will last a lifetime.
“We decided to spend our first wedding anniversary in New York, as we love the energy and vibrancy the city has to offer. It’s also the perfect weekend getaway from Toronto (only a quick 1 hour flight).
“We stayed at the James Hotel in SoHo, in the same neighbourhood where we did our Flytographer shoot with Johnny. We would highly recommend The James. The staff is lovely, the rooms are spacious and modern, and the cityscape view from the rooftop pool is incredible. Be sure to have a mojito at The Jimmy Bar! We love the culinary scene in New York. Every time we come, we try to get a reservation at a Mario Batali restaurant. This trip we celebrated our anniversary at Babbo and it was perfection!
“Our favourite thing to do in New York is to just walk around and explore all the neighbourhoods. Comfortable (and stylish) walking shoes are always a must. Other favourite things: strolling the High Line, a picnic lunch in Central Park, seeing the latest exhibit at the new Whitney Museum, tacos at La Esquina to refuel from shopping in Soho, visiting the 9/11 Memorial and taking in the views from Top of the Rock.
“Johnny was great! He was very quick and professional and made the most of our 30 minute session. The entire process was easy and fun. The photos are an amazing memento of our first wedding anniversary in New York City.” – Kaleigh & Mike
