Such a beautiful scenery. NYC is cold during the winters, but the wait for Spring is worth it.

New York. What can I say? Everything about the city excites me.

I had the honor of working with Grace Ormonde in Chelsea Piers, New York for her 2012 Fall / Winter Wedding Style Magazine. This photo was quite a challenge. In order to properly compensate for the background cityscape, I had to light the foreground appropriately. In normal circumstances, that is easy. However, this beautiful white and orange table top has a sheen that reflected artificial lighting in the most unflattering way.

After about two hours of struggling, this centerpiece became a full spread when it was originally supposed to be printed as a vertical single page.

The Plaza New York and Grace Ormonde Wedding Style Magazine

Sunday, October 31st, 2010

“If this goes through, Lawrence, I guess they’ll have to shave a few hours from afternoon tea,” giggled Grace.

The air was filled with romance drawn from scenes of The Beatles, Frank Sinatra and other Greats walking through the same opulent lobby. The Plaza Hotel is the quintessence of elegance, which was the perfect pairing for Wedding Style Magazine’s New York party on October 15, 2010.

Ed Libby tweeted, “The who’s who of what’s what in NYC are here!!” I couldn’t agree more – I did a lot of gawking, stalking, and paparazzi-style shooting. Overall, I am humbled and honored that I had the opportunity to partake on this memorable event at such a landmark location.

“I have never seen the Palm Court look so sexy,” was Grace’s opening line. And it was welcomed with unanimous laughter.

Others who attended included Colin Cowie, Reem Acra, Ines Di Santo… I was a little star-struck to say the least. Unfortunately, I did not get photos of everyone. It was probably because I was eating…yummy!

The evening proceeded with lots of wine and wonderful conversations. The next morning, I decided to do a little pigeon feeding and HDR fun. Since the Apple store was not too far from The Plaza, I couldn’t resist.

Afterward, Yanni, Grace, Tracy, Mike and I went to a few fashion shows for Bridal Market. That was fun!

Yours truly,

Lawrence Chan

P.S. I have been to New York over a dozen times now and I keep FORGETTING to eat a street vendor hot dog!! Until next time…
