Bucket list check! I’ve been dreaming for years of shooting an engagement session in DUMBO park Brooklyn and on the Brooklyn Bridge, so when Rachel and Matthew booked their wedding for next year in Pittsburgh but said they would love photos in their hometown of Brooklyn, I was completely down! Luckily I was there shooting a Sunday wedding (which is headed to the blog soon) and was able to do both in the same weekend, though I’d make my way to the city any time really!
There is nothing quite like the Manhattan skyline. And the bridge, let’s talk about iconic! I was literally in heaven shooting their session and the weather cooperated beautifully as well. We took a stroll to the carousel, walked along the coastline of the Hudson, found a perfectly hidden gem of a park with the most beautiful light and ended up on a very crowded bridge where it somehow felt like we were the only ones around.
I am a total big city girl at heart, and part of my heart totally lies in NYC. My fabulous second shooter Kristy Lumsden and I had a great time Ubering around the city and trying out fantastic brunch places. Let’s say that I am an Avocado toast aficionado now! Shopping in Soho, wandering in the Upper East Side, meeting up with old friends and just a good old fashioned road trip made for a perfect weekend. Can’t wait to head back soon!
