On a cloudy day in Brooklyn, we were lucky enough to shoot this Dumbo engagement photography for Ayman & Isabel. Although it was overcast, this couple was as sunny as ever. We decided to take a walk around Brooklyn Bridge Park, and also try to get the iconic bridge shot in Dumbo. You’ve probably seen it on Instagram before.
Where is the iconic Dumbo bridge shot?
In case you’re curious, the street where you can get the Dumbo bridge shot is at Washington Street & Front Street. You get an absolutely iconic view of the Manhattan Bridge. If you’re meeting someone there for photos, there’s a Starbucks at 67 Front Street you can use as a “basecamp”.
Engagement photography in Dumbo
We met Ayman & Isabel through a mutual friend, and these two could not have been more of a pleasure to shoot with. Recently engaged, Ayman & Isabel met each other in college and have been together ever since. Isabel’s ring is a gorgeous, detailed piece that feels so personal.
Brooklyn Bridge Park engagement photos
The day we photographed this engagement session in Dumbo, it was the first warm day we’d had in a while. Thus, we found that every local and tourist alike had flocked to the streets of Dumbo for photos. We walked and talked through Brooklyn Bridge Park and managed to avoid the barrage of selfie sticks. Ayman & Isabel rolled with it, and we made it work with a few sneaky tricks to avoid strangers in these Brooklyn engagement photos.
Ayman & Isabel’s Dumbo engagement session
Dumbo is one of our absolute favorite places, both to hang out in and to photograph. The views of Manhattan are absolutely unbeatable, and we’re so glad to have incorporated so much of the city that brought Ayman & Isabel together into their Brooklyn engagement session.
