After a fun day walking around the city, Dan and I sat on a park bench watching the ice cream eaters and dog walkers underneath the Brooklyn Bridge. We were just relaxing for an hour before Kim and Justin’s engagement session was to begin. When they arrived, we were so happy to finally meet Justin in person, having only met Kim at a cafe in Cambridge a few months earlier. As soon as we began, we were almost inundated with Wedding Parties and Quincieras all being photographed all around us. At one point, we could see three separate brides, all at once. Apparently we were in the right place for photographs!
We hung out in the park for a while, walking along the water and dancing in the shade. After an hour or so, we headed up to the bridge itself to walk across it and create some unforgettable images. Walking across the bridge has always been a bucket list item for me, so when Kim suggested this as a location I almost jumped out of my office chair. It totally and completely lived up to my expectations. I also really loved that it wasn’t just a tourist location for them. This is where they live and it is meaningful to them. That’s how we like it.
My only piece of advice if you want to photograph or be photographed on the bridge: watch out for the bikes!
