Hi all! I recently shot the wedding of two of my favorite people: Courtney and Warren. But before I get ahead of myself, I wanted to show you their engagement portrait photos from earlier in the month. The shoot took place at Coney Island — always a fantastic location for photos of any type. The weather was a bit cold, but Courtney and Warren persevered and the photos are lovely! In addition to the usual shots along the boardwalk, Cyclone, and in front of Nathan’s, we got off the beaten track and went down under the pier for some great photos.
Some tips for shooting at Coney Island: go on an off time. Trying to shoot great photos when you are surrounded by hundreds of beach goers is not an ideal situation. Avoid the weekends and any major holidays. Early morning is a great time to shoot as well. Also, don’t forget about the Aquarium and the Russian neighborhood of Brighton Beach. Enjoy the photos!
