Amy and Matt - Brooklyn Bridge Park engagement session

Amy and Matt contacted me after they saw  wedding photos  form Tam O’ Shanter Club in Long Island. They loved them. They decided to do their engagement photos in Dumbo area. It was a chilly afternoon in Brooklyn when we met. The sun was about to set when we started wandering around the streets of Dumbo.

Advantages of Dumbo

The buildings and the whole area undergo a constant change. Between old two-story buildings you can find contemporary architecture which makes background for engagement photos in Brooklyn so interesting. In addition to this there are still remaining some cobblestone streets and warehouses, because of that it is a deep mine of inspirations. The whole area is connected to the parks by the East River. All these elements make Dumbo area ideal for couples’ photoshoot. Maybe it is popular spot for engagement session or wedding portrait for the bride and groom. It is very important to notice that with such a variety of possibilities it is quite easy go  places in Dumbo that are less visited likewise. Of course, I can’t omit places like Pebble Beach, Jane’s Carousel or Empire Fulton Ferry Park. Those are certainly iconic places of Brooklyn Bridge Park area. I want my couples to have photos there – plus it is one of the most beautiful spots for the sunset with the view of Manhattan in a background.

Having Fun

After few photos taken on the streets, we headed to the park. The sun was getting lower and it was the perfect time to take some romantic photos with beautiful warm glow over the horizon. Amy and Matt were such a fun couple to work with. They were going along with my suggestions and had a lot of laughter. As a result we have fun, happy photos and great experience before the wedding day.

Amy brought a furry vest  form ecru which worked great in the park surrounding. Matt had a casual plain color shirt form Report Collection which was also a great choice.
