Miriam and Jon are a lovely couple, and I am proud to share with you their Grand Army Plaza engagement photos! Miriam and Jon live in New York, but will be getting married on the West Coast. As a salute to their home borough of Brooklyn, they decided to do the engagement shoot close to their front door. So let’s get all the details in today’s blog post.
For this engagement shoot, we shot in several locations near and dear to Miriam and Jon. While we started at Grand Army Plaza, we ended up in a favorite bar of theirs on Smith Street called Bar Tabac that had a very photogenic outdoor foosball table. Along the way, we took photos at the entrance to the Brooklyn Library, and stepped foot in Prospect Park. The stone ‘gazebo’ just outside the park is a great place to sneak in some ‘secret’ photos away from the crowds outside.
Miriam kept to one outfit, but thanks to the somewhat cool weather, she used her coat for a quick change of attire. This is a great tip for any of you looking to book an engagement shoot in the future. Changing clothes completely is time consuming, and there often isn’t a private space available. However, if you make a minimal change you can have maximum impact. Change your shoes or jewelry, or add (or remove) your outerwear for a whole different look.
