Classic Harborline Cruise // Surprise 50th Birthday Event // New York City

While weddings and families are typically my bread and butter, it's so enjoyable to receive a request for something that is not my norm. When I was contacted about photographing this 50th surprise birthday party, it only took two words to have me hooked: Sunset. Cruise. ( the longer version is " on a private schooner in the Hudson River" but you get the picture.)

While I knew this would be a challenging assignment (not a lot of room for walking around, a rocking boat with only ropes as guard rails, and quickly vanishing light), I also knew that it was one I would never forget. Big thanks to Dawn from Modern Heirloom Books LLC for inviting me to be a part of this amazing event!
