Greenpoint, Brooklyn. All the grit you could ask for. When a couple’s style completely falls in line with the area you’re shooting, it’s a thing of beauty. Take these two, for example. Alexandra & Pat wanted their engagement session to be more of a hangout session wandering the streets of Brooklyn which worked out perfectly because that’s what I do anyway. I love it when things work out so nicely. Being a Brooklyn engagement photographer, I have really started to love this little nook of New York. There’s just so much soul at every turn. It’s almost as if every single street and avenue has it’s own style and character.
There wasn’t a true plan in terms of landmarks or streets to hit, which is why it flowed so naturally. It was nice not checking off spots from a list so they Alexandra & Pat could focus on each other while we adventured around. They did what they do and I did what I do and it’s as simple as that. And as luck would have it, we happened upon a huge semi-trailer parked on the street so it became a new location. This was a fun one to shoot.
