Dumbo has become the most popular area for taking engagement and wedding photos in Brooklyn. Just go there on any given Saturday at any time of the day 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.
