Grand Central! Just pick a time that won’t be crowded.

You could also try the NY public library and different museums near Central Park.

What about something cute like in Toys ‘R Us? On a subway platform?

I’ve seen cute photos inside the Metropolitan Museum and the Museum of Natural History – I’d check out the policy because I think it can be a little tricky taking pictures inside, but I know it *has* been done before!  You can also try the bridge/walkways in Central Park – I’ve seen many cute rainy day e-photos with umbrellas and galoshes.  Good luck!

What about Wintergarden inside World Financial Center? It has a beautiful glass dome.

Bumping this–anyone else have any ideas?  Our outdoor photos at the Cloisters might be rained out too.  We can’t take them inside the Met because tripods are only allowed Wed-Fri with special permission and our session is on Saturday.  I really don’t like post-Renaissance art either so I don’t really want to do them in another museum. BOO RAIN.

Heh…bumping this AGAIN, seven months later. :X

 

We never got around to taking our photos the last time, but now we’re all set to go with a photographer couple flying in from out west, so the time slot is non-negotiable…around sunset on Wednesday.  But it’s supposed to snow!  We’re still aiming for The Cloisters, but if it’s covered in snow, my floor-length dress and high-heeled sandals getup is not gonna work.  So Grand Central is mega-out because it’ll be rush hour.  The NY Public Library does not allow you to take photos inside unless you’ve booked a wedding with them, and they were really mean about it when I even asked, so I’m not even attempting it.  The Met and AMNH both donot allow tripods and will be closing when we’re slated to take our photos anyway (around 5 PM).

The Toys R Us is a cute idea, but I’m hoping that all the kids who got money for Christmas have already gone and bought their toys. Plus I highly doubt it’s permitted.  

Anyone have any more ideas? TIA.

Bueller? :/

Wednesday is the ONLY day in the next week that it’s supposed to snow in NYC.  AND it’s supposed to be windy. Figures!

@veganglam: Totally random, but what about Eataly?  They have a lot of beautiful architecture, and you guys could grab a glass of wine and have a few photo ops in one of the beautiful restaruants.  Maybe you could get a “Lady and Tramp” inspired photo of the two of you sharing a plate of pasta?

And, if the weather cooperates, you can head over to Madison Square park for some cute park bench pictures.

Hmm!  Eataly, there’s a good idea!  I like it.  Thank you 🙂  It’s looking like our shoot might be snowed out entirely…but we’ll see!  If it’s snowed but not too much to ruin everything, Eataly it might be.  Also, my favorite coffee shop is right in the area so that’s always a plus!

What about museums that aren’t art museums? There are plenty in Manhattan. Natural History comes to mind first, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

EDIT: Just saw what you wrote about that. But–there are still plenty of others. What about Lincoln Center?

What about the Chelsea Market?  They have some beautiful looking spaces in there, and that main entrance with the ramp is gorgeous!

If you’re willing to travel all the way uptown, Morris Jumel Mansion in Washington Heights looks really pretty – though I haven’t checked out what the restrictions might be on photos.

We’re going with the cloisters and it’s going to be 55 degrees outside when we shoot :-/
