It’s not a boat, It’s a Yacht!
The famous quote from Vince Vaughn in the Starsky & Hutch movie. This perfectly summed up what we captured Brianna & Sal’s engagement/GTKY session on! This session was amazing…
When I meet with couples I ask quite a few questions because I want to know their backgrounds, interests, dreams, hopes, etc. We got to talking and Sal said they have a boat. I told them I had boats all my life and love boating. I suggested we should do their GTKY session on their boat as that is one of their “happy places”. Sal said his uncle has a big boat (a Yacht!) that was 70 feet and is amazing. They charter it out of Port Washington, NY. The boat charter company is called Artistic Yacht Charters. Sal had to make some calls and ask his uncle, but I was beyond excited!
My second shooter and I drove up from South Jersey to the Capri Brewer Marina in NY and I immediately saw this red beauty! Only one thing was an issue. The yacht looked small as there was a 130ft yacht docked right next to it! When I was younger I would always love seeing the Italian designer Azimut whenever we went to the Atlantic City boat shows. They are sleek, modern and just different from all other boats. Sal’s uncle’s Azimut has a stunning red hull with an enclosed upper deck with air conditioning.
We walked around the marina shooting details while waiting for the captain to arrive and take us out. Sal and Brianna got into their first outfit ready to go out onto the open water. When the engines started you knew this was a serious vehicle. Underneath the rich teakwood at our feet was 3000 horsepower diesel engines ready to glide us through the Manhasset Bay towards the Throgs Neck Bridge.
Brianna and Sal brought two different outfits for their session and they fit the style of this boat perfectly. One fancy gold dress and black suit, then a white lace dress and relaxed look for Sal with his button up and Cole Haan boating shoes. The gold dress and the red boat with her red shoes were amazing.
We watched the sunset as we drove back to the marina. Special thanks to Sal’s Uncle for taking us out. This boat is available for charter and there is nothing like it in NY! There is also no one like Brianna & Sal. I just captured their wedding at The Park Chateau Estate. Thanks for sharing laughs, tears, and everything in between together with me!
