The Engagement Session Story
For Frank and Brittani’s engagement pictures, we decided to do them at Domino Park in the Williamsburg area of Brooklyn because Frank’s firehouse, where he serves the community as a fireman, is nearby. I was excited to photograph here because it’s a new park, this area was all under construction last year, and I knew we’d get some stunning views of the Williamsburg Bridge and the Manhattan skyline.
But, there was a catch. In order to get these breathtaking views without having to move around a crowd, we decided to do the photo shoot at the crack of dawn. Which ended up being the best decision! This my advice for any couple wanting those iconic New York City picture, in order to avoid the crowds, we should be at those locations before the tourists wake up.
At 7 am, the sun was just beginning to rise and because the park’s views are facing west, the sun was rising behind the buildings, so we weren’t immediately hit with harsh sunlight. The light was perfectly soft and the overcast also softened the background light which made the Manhattan skyline look amazing for the pictures.
And even though it was so early, we had an amazing time! In thanks to their amazing personalities and good coffee. Frank and Brittani were super troopers and brought all the love vibes with them to the shoot.
