Pratibha + Phillip {Dumbo/Brooklyn Engagement}

I could never have imagined such a perfect, warm-but-not-too-warm June evening when Pratibha and Phillip booked their engagement session this past cold, snowy January. With her gorgeous yellow sari and his mega-watt smile, the two of them were shining brighter than the sun! We met a few blocks from Jane’s Carousel, where I had scoped out some cool graffiti to use as a background. The beginning shots are always supposed to be a warm-up so I never like to start with my best locations but some of these openers are my favorites from the day…

Pratibha had shared some inspiration images with me before the shoot, emphasizing some fun poses she wanted to incorporate amongst the romantic ones. I love when my couples want their personalities to shine through!

We took a slightly alternate route to get onto the Brooklyn Bridge and I am so glad we did! This wall just worked perfectly with their color-scheme. What’s better is the space is big enough for two engagement sessions at once, we spotted another couple out with a photographer at the other end…DUMBO Brooklyn, NY Engagement Session at Sunset

Pratibha and I immediately bonded over our love for dogs, so when this pup came strolling by, we had to take a mini-break for some pets…DUMBO Brooklyn, NY Engagement Session at Sunset

We decided to take the ferry back across to Manhattan. I love this next shot, with the shape of the bridge in the background. There is just so much love with these two…DUMBO Brooklyn, NY Engagement Session at Sunset
