I spent the weekend shooting street style at Governors Ball. I had never been to a music festival before. Excited and overwhelmed, I packed everything I thought I could need gear wise and packed my fanny pack Tito's gave me for the festival with necessities (hand sanitizer, advil, ear plugs and koozies). Highlight of the day? Shawn Mendes laughing at me for lip syncing behind the camera to all the words to his new song Lost in Japan.
When she was in NYC for a few days during NYFW, Jamie Chung and I collaborated on some shoots for Parker and Adidas. I can't believe I have known Jamie for 4 years now. Our first shoot was at the Standard Hotel Highline in the bathroom where they had these killer black and white patterned walls. She introduced me that day to my now obsession with oysters and she had just recently got engaged. I always love shooting with Jamie while she is in town and catching up. Happy to call her a friend and a client!
Follow along on Jamie's work and killer style over on her Instagram.
Jamie is always a doll to work with and is such a sweet friend. Haven't seeing each other in a while, it was a blast to catch up on everything from life to the bachelorette. This gorgeous rooftop had perfect white hydrangeas. They screamed photo op.

Jamie and I first met a little over a year ago. I gushed over her new engagement ring over oysters at the Standard Highline Hotel. Which then turned into an impromptu photoshoot in the bathroom
We later collaborated a bunch of times doing work for her blog What The Chung during fashion week and outfit posts.
Jamie contacted me about a piece she was doing for E! News about how to wear a skirt 3 different ways for Macy's. We met at her apartment in BK and roamed around scouting locations for each of the looks. It had begun to rain during the shoot, but Jamie is so incredibly easy to work with and is so photogenic, that it only takes a few seconds before you know you got the shot. Sometimes it's making sure the shirt flows perfectly in the wind, a hand gesture or a giggle that takes the shot from "street style" to lifestyle.

Stationed outside Milk Studios and Skylight Clarkson shooting street style for Nylon, I was bound to see and shoot some interesting people.
The outfits become more and more extreme as seasons go on. Girls pace down and back on the street hoping they are photographed, without even wandering into a show or a building.
A headphone in one ear and my D800 in my right hand, I'm on the lookout for color, sequins, and apparently beards that hit the ground.
