I’m so excited to share this shoot with you today. This wonderfully sweet couple flew in from New Zealand just to get married in this iconic city of Brooklyn (Dumbo to be exact – AkA District Under Manhattan Bridge). In this area, there’s this beautiful little spot across the way from Jane’s Carousel called Pebble Beach that has become a pretty popular spot for wedding ceremonies. What makes me excited about this shoot is how easy going Nick and Renee are. To top it of, they had an appreciation for film photography which always put an extra pep in my shooting when I know this. This elopement was shot on Medium format Contax645 on Fuji film stock with a small mix of 35mm on Portra 800.
I love that this couple were up for anything. We did this shoot on a Monday and you would be surprised how many elopements, engagements and general photo shoots were happening at this time. There was a point where we had to wait for 2 other shoots to clear off a specific block before we could set our shots up. In the end, all the running around resulted in some fantastic moments.
