This past Friday, we had the opportunity to shoot the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy Class of 2009 Graduation Cruise in NYC. Although we’ve had a ton of rain dumped on us lately, Mother Nature was nice enough to take a break and give us some really nice weather for our evening on the water.
The USMMA is located in Kings Point, New York and is a maritime college, so it only makes sense that the graduating class would take one last cruise together before heading off into the real world.
The cruise was held aboard the Cornucopia Majesty, which happens to be the largest capacity yacht on the East Coast. She departed from Chelsea Piers in Manhattan at 7pm, just in time for us to catch a beautiful sunset. The New York City skyline made a great backdrop to a wonderful evening. The water was calm, the ship was steady, the people were festive, and the dance floor was rocking! These Kings Pointers really know how to throw a party!

And no party would be complete without my trusty (and equally beautiful) assistant.
