Brooklyn Engagement Session | Amy + Mike


They’re a young couple living in Brooklyn NY. They plan to get married in 2011 and have recently booked me to take their engagement photos. Working pretty quickly, we scheduled the best day to accommodate our schedules, with special attention to the weather forecast. Saturday September 11, 2010 turned out to be one of the best days for photography that I’ve seen in a while.
We tread on local grounds, the scene was Fulton ferry landing and the Brooklyn promenade. The cityscape, vast open sky, and great weather always make for some of the most dynamic, yet serene vistas available in Brooklyn.
