I shared in Part I of this post that I really wanted to share some beauty from my hometown. Brooklyn has so many beautiful historical landmarks and Grand Army Plaza is certainly one of them.
I want to share the excerpt that I wrote when I submitted this shoot to The White Wren for consideration for a the feature:
“I’m a Brooklyn based photographer and I wanted to do a romantic and elegant bridal shoot in Brooklyn. I hoped to keep it simple and soft and find the windswept romantic magic that can be found in the middle of Brooklyn- drawing inspiration from shoots I’ve seen done in Paris and other places. Grand Army Plaza is a historical landmark surrounded by old cobble stone and lovely features. I thought the marriage of this historic place and the romantic style of the shoot would make for a very beautiful scene.”
I meant every word. As a photographer you begin to see the world around you in a new light. You delve deeper into the sights, people and places that surround you, looking for depth that speaks to you as an artist. Sharing what captures my eye and how I wish to interpret it means a lot to me.
But that is all the more meaningful when I am able to share it with my brides & grooms, families and individuals who trust me to photograph them all around Brooklyn, New York and beyond.
None of this would have been possible or as beautiful had it not been for the excellent work of the entire team.
