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!

Engagement Photography in Dumbo Brooklyn

This past fall all of a sudden I was getting a ton of inquiries to do engagement photography over in Dumbo Brooklyn. I'm not sure why, maybe I sent some good vibes out there that I love that area. There's tons of different scenes over here to work with and always interesting light as well as some awesome food spots! Some people say this area has been photographed too much for engagement sessions and wedding, but I love taking on these types of challenges. One of my favorite things is to go to a heavily photographed area then try to make it my own and have a new spin on it. Challenge accepted! This couple was from Canada and were spending a couple of days here in New York. I wanted to make sure I gave them that awesome experience through photos they were hoping for. Here's a little preview from the outing.
