How about inside grand central station?  You can google it to see photos of the inside.

I was thinking Grand Central Station as well.

Also not sure where your reception is going to be-but maybe there are some places around there. There is a park in JC and a theater in JC-can’t remember the names right now.

I’m going to try and give you indoor locationssince it will be cold and downtown so you don’t have to travel far.  You could see about the Winter Garden.  It is mostly an office building with shops and stuff but where else can you get a picture with indoor palm trees in NYC?  Also downtown is the Native American Musuem which is located inside the historic Customs House.  There are great pictures to be had on the steps and inside since the building is so old.  I am not sure if you can take professional pictures inside without permission but I would check which you may have to do for several of these ideas.  Another idea would be the Wall Street Bull (assuming it isn’t snowing) which is supposed to be good luck but would have to be outside.  You could also get “away from the island” on the Staten Island Ferry which is inside in January and I think it is only 30 min. round trip.  Another indoor location would be the the NY Firemen’t Museum that has old firetrucks which may make a nice contrast.

I work in the Winter Garden, and I would NOT recommend doing pictures here.  For one thing, it’s kind of a pain to get over here, and the place is swarming with tourists nonstop.  Also, you wouldn’t really be able to get “nice” pictures with the palm trees — they look nice when you’re looking up at the ceiling, but from ground level, it just looks like a mall, with generic benches, a Banana Republic and a Sunglasses Hut.  And the views out of the windows are just WTC construction. 

I also agree with Grand Central.  The bull is also a great idea.  Maybe the steps of the NYSE?  The South Street Seaport might also be a good location for pictures and you could easily pop inside a store or something to warm up.

I would second the seaport, as well as DUMBO.  If you want to take advantage of holiday decorations, you could go up to 5th Ave/Central Park/Rockefeller Center.

Good luck!
