Dumbo Brooklyn Engagement Photography

Dumbo Brooklyn is probably my most sought out area to do engagements and elopement photography in New York. Whats not to love, there's a ton of cool sights from under both the Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridge, multiple parks, the NYC skyline, cobblestone streets and good eats :) I almost never shoot in the same spots especially for weddings, but a place like Dumbo Brooklyn, there are really just endless possibilities for different photos. Last year I was there about 15 times and I only stepped foot on the iconic Brooklyn Bridge once, but every engagement session was 100% unique to the couples I got to work with and they all rocked! Every time I go out to a wedding or engagement session I have to push myself out of my comfort zone, trying new things is the best way to grow. This was the first time trying out a double exposure and it came out pretty great (the cool bridge silhouette portrait). This was also one of the first times I used my leica m240 for about half of the engagement session along with my nikon. The leica is a fully manual camera, I even have to focus the lens manually. I have a couple reasons I use the leica: it gives a very distinct look, almost like film instead of digital, and it's just plain inspiring to work with. I'm very excited to be working with these two for their Long Island Wedding this fall!

Thanks for reading my photography blog!
