Brooklyn is the iconic place to take your engagement photos if you want the Manhattan skyline as your backdrop! As a NYC wedding photographer, I photograph engaged couples every year in Brooklyn, creating those treasured moments in the city that means so much to them.
My favorite place to take engagement photos in Brooklyn is along the Brooklyn Heights Promenade! I love how there is a walkway amongst the trees with the Manhattan city-skyline in the distance!
Now that we know you want to have engagement photos in Brooklyn, the next step is in deciding what time of day your session should be at! As a photographer who has worked all over the city in all kinds of light, I always recommend having your engagement session from the Brooklyn Heights Promenade to be at sunset! The lighting is best during this time of day - the sun will be setting behind the Manhattan skyline, creating a beautiful glow around the city and you!
