Laurie and Matt wanted to do their engagement session at some of their favorite local spots in Prospect Park & Park Slope Brooklyn. We spent some time at Prospect Park, then maneuvered our way over to one of Laurie's favorite bars. It's always so great to be able to go to more comfortable spots and capture people at places where they feel the most at home. I’m so thankful I am able to be their New york city wedding photographer and I will be photographing their wedding at the Green Building in Brooklyn in a couple of months! Here are some of my favorite shots from the session:
I got another chance to photograph around Gowanus, Brooklyn and Soho with Nick and Kimberly. Nick loved the industrial and edgy look of their neighborhood and Kimberly liked the polished and chic look of Soho (where they work). So we were able to combine their personalities into their engagement session and hit up both areas! It was such a great time because they allowed me to be creative and free with them and we found some really amazing spaces to photograph at. It’s so awesome to be able to capture these photographs for them for the future!! It was also awesome because one of these shots was featured in the New York Times!! I am so thankful they chose me to be their new york city wedding photographer!! They will be getting married in California next year! Here are some of my favorite shots!
Had an amazing time photographing with these two. With Brandon's lightheartedness and Christina's edginess, the two melded together to create really adorable moments. We started at the Bushwick Collective in Brooklyn, New York City, since they wanted to encapsulate a more industrial and edgy feel to represent their personalities.
Afterwards we ended up at the East River Park for a sunset and a softer look. It's not easy being models in an engagement session, but I was really happy to see such amazing shots come to fruition with them. They are going to be getting married at Dumbo Loft, an amazing venue in Brooklyn- I can’t wait for their urban chic New York City Wedding in a few months!
PS: Brandon used to be a child model in his early years- which made things much easier for me, haha!
Anuja and John are SO adorable!! John is a man of never-ending information (which is totally impressive) and Anuja is a sweet and witty lady! I loved working with them, eating (and drinking) our way through Brooklyn - their neighborhood! We made pitstops at Luke's Lobster and Three's Brewing Company, found interesting and odd spaces and ended the session making SMORES on their brooklyn rooftop that had a view of New York City!! *___* It was a really a fun shoot and I'm so thankful for couples that allow me to be creative, energetic and spontaneous! Another great day as a new york city wedding photographer! Here are some of my favorite shots:
