When it comes to engagement photoshoots in New York City, some people will skip out on the engagement session. Whether it’s due to extra cost or just not being comfortable, there are numerous reasons someone might not do an engagement session. But we include NYC engagement photos in every wedding photography package for a reason. Let’s go through why it’s important to have a New York engagement photo session.
On your wedding day, it’s likely that you’ll be taking photos around New York City. It doesn’t always make for the most relaxing experience. The hustle and bustle of the city can be a little overwhelming when you’re trying to pose. Doing an engagement shoot in NYC ahead of time can make it easier to have a smooth wedding day experience.
One major key to getting comfortable in your photos is to avoid crowded locations. We definitely recommend having an early morning engagement session. That way, you don’t have tourists, runners, and other people in the background of your photos. When you go out as early as possible (especially in popular spots!) it makes for a more intimate experience.
When choosing a location for your photos, consider choosing something sentimental to your relationship. For example, when some people choose to do DUMBO engagement photos, it’s because they spent a ton of time there as a couple. Or, you can go back to the spot where you two first got engaged. There are so many options for New York engagement photo session locations.
Get comfortable in front of the camera with Manhattan or Brooklyn engagement photos. We’d love for photography to be the least stressful part of your wedding day. It’s so important to us that our couples are comfortable above all else. We want to make sure that you warm up with us ahead of the wedding day to make yourself more comfortable in front of the camera.
Having engagement photos done in NYC makes for a much less stressful wedding day. When you’re not thinking about how nervous you are about doing New York wedding photography, you can focus on having fun. Plus, knowing what to do ahead of time means that your photos will get done faster.
We’ll teach you everything you need to know about posing for your wedding photos in New York. As Brooklyn wedding photographers, we like to focus on prompts rather than posing. It creates a much more natural experience for fun, candid wedding photos. When you learn about that during your engagement session, it makes a world of difference.
On top of everything else, when was the last time you had photos done professionally together? Have NYC engagement photos to cherish for the rest of your life. You’re only engaged once and it’s so important to capture this happy experience in your relationship. You’ll want to document these feelings while you have that newly engaged glow.
You can even bring your pet along to your engagement photo shoot. Capturing memories with your pet at the stage in your relationship can be so important down the line. Having those photos to cherish forever not only makes great apartment decorations, but can be held in your heart for years to come.
Taking engagement photos is also a generational gift. If you plan to have a family in the future, it’s a super nice thing to be able to show your children down the line. You can share with them what your life was like when you were engaged to your partner in New York City.
Something a lot of couples love to do for their New York engagement photos is to choose an iconic and timeless spot in the city. You may not always live in New York City, so having photos at epic landmarks or memorable places may be a good idea. Plus, if you have family and friends outside of the city, they will absolutely love looking at your engagement photos from these iconic New York locations.
We have a ton of location ideas when it comes to New York City engagement photo spots. Here’s a list of some of our favorite locations. Each one of these spots has different specifications on when and where you should do your engagement session. Let us know where you’re thinking because we’d love to guide you in the right direction.
The most important reason to do an engagement photo session before your wedding day in New York City is to get to know your wedding photographers. We love to understand our couples comfort level ahead of the celebration. Doing an engagement photo shoot with us is like having a cup of coffee and getting to know each other. It’s the perfect opportunity to see how we all live together and have some fun.
