Dumbo has become the most popular area for taking engagement and wedding photos in Brooklyn. Just go there on any given Saturday, and you will run into dozens of couples in wedding attires, surrounded by photographers.
I personally never tire of Dumbo, because it has a myriad of photo opportunities. Shooting there is always different, and the challenge of looking for new backdrops and corners is an exciting one.
Yan and Yuki’s cloudy Dumbo engagement shoot was no exception. We played with the gloomy sky and the metallic colors of the city background. Yuki’s beautiful white dress blended well in the white sky as well. We shot until after the sun went down, when the sky is dark blue and reflects in the water. This “Blue Hour” gave some cooler tones to the images towards the end of the shoot, and it was beautiful to watch.
Sukie and Mike’s stylish DIY wedding at Maison May was everything a DIY lover could dream of.
It was a collaborative effort of the couple’s loved ones, with a wedding dress designed by Sukie’s best friend at Seek Collective, stationary designed by the Mike’s sister, and flowers put together by Sukie’s mother. Both moms performed during the reception – a hula dance for Sukie’s, a song by Mike’s- and the groom even sang a beautiful Beatles song for his bride as a surprise.
It is truly an honor to be a part of such a unique day. Sukie and Mike’s wedding looked like them, and I hope the pictures will translate that.
Olivia and Camilo’s summer wedding at Arrow Park was full to the brim with love and emotion.
The whole wedding was a collaborative project where parents, cousins and sisters participated. Even half a dozen guests stood up during the ceremony to read a poem or quote that Olivia and Camilo’s love had inspired them to read out loud.
After the ceremony, officiated by the couple’s moms, the day continued with many heartfelt toasts and dances. All throughout the day, Camilo, Olivia and their loved ones showcased so much love and appreciation for each other. There were lots of tears, hugs, and hands being held. It was moving to see so much support from everyone in the room.
It it during days like these that I realize just how lucky we are to find someone we want to spend everyday with. Congrats to the lovebirds!
