Engagement photo shoot- indoor or outdoor?
Engagement Photo Session locations and time plays a crucial role in Long Island. I have been asked many times to suggest a location for engagement photo session in Long Island, New York. As a Long Island wedding and engagement photographer , I have to discuss about Long Island weather before proceeding to location. Before you choose location, getting a handle on what to expect weather-wise is helpful when making Long Island Engagement photo shoot.
Long Island is divided into two counties: Nassau County to the west and Suffolk County on the eastern flank of the island. Long Island is bordered by the East River, Long Island Sound, and the Atlantic Ocean. Nassau County tends to be a bit warmer since it is closer to the mainland and more densely populated, causing a heat island effect. Suffolk County, besides being further from the mainland and less populated, benefits from breezes off the Atlantic and Long Island Sound, which moderate its summertime highs. When there's a heat wave or frigid cold front, the daily temperatures can deviate from these averages significantly. Knowing temperature will help Photographer and couples for selecting indoor or outdoor photoshoots. There is no hard rule to take engagement sessions in outdoor or indoor. Create a meaningful backdrop for your engagement photos that are significant to both of you.
