Happy Labor Day everyone! While you are all enjoy your holiday weekend, I thought I would share photos from Michelle and Dan’s Brooklyn Bridge Park engagement portrait. Their session includes, not only a full tour of the park, but also a stunning sunset over the NYC skyline. Enjoy the photos!
Michelle and Dan are Brooklyn proud, and they wanted photos over all of Brooklyn Bridge Park. As such, I made sure we took it all in: from the East River Ferry dock, over to Pier 2, and then back to Jane’s Carousel. The weather was lovely and the crowds were out in force, but we were able to secure some private moments by avoiding the most popular parts of the park.
Brooklyn Bridge Park has become an incredibly popular location photos, rivaling even Central Park. My recommendation to anyone wanting to schedule a similar shoot is that you go on a weekday in the morning. Make sure you take advantage of the areas of the park which are much less crowded, including the area near Pier 2 and the forest area above the Granite Prospect. The brick arches in St. Ann’s Warehouse are undeniably one of the most popular spots in the park, but that’s because it is a great location for group photos. You may have to wait your turn, so get there early. Finally, don’t forget about Jane’s Carousel, which is open Thursday to Sunday from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. And even if it is closed, the reflections you can get in the carousel’s glass walls are stunning.
