New York Engagement Photo Locations

In part 2 of our series (Part 1: New Jersey engagement locations), we explore New York engagement photo locations. New York has so many locations to explore for your engagement photos so let’s begin!

The most common city that we visit for engagement photos is New York City. With very popular parks, restaurants and neighborhoods, the possibilities are endless.

Central Park

Being one of the the two most popular places for us to shoot (Dumbo being the other), we have seen Central Park at all times of the year. Our absolute favorite time had to be during cherry blossom season.

Aside from the beautiful flowers and green areas of the park, there are other spots that include great architecture including the old bridges, Conservatory Garden and Bethesda Fountain. Because Central Park is so popular, it is not advised to have your session here on a weekend in the spring/summer. It can get so packed!

The High Line

Add the High Line as another super popular location for engagement photos. An elevated park in NYC, it stretches 1 1/2 miles above Manhattan’s West Side. It is very diverse in areas to photograph- between art work, train tracks, greenery and views of the City, we shoot with a different look each and every time. Because of its popularity, we always have to shoot in the early am. Each of the shoots seen here were taken at 7am, so be prepared to wake up super early!

New York City Neighborhoods

Often times, whenever we shoot an engagement session in NYC, it is not just at a park or landmark. We love walking the local neighborhoods with our clients in order to get a feel of the city. We have shot in Chelsea, SOHO, and the Meatpacking District- all which have their own unique personalities.

Now let’s move onto the 2nd most popular borough in NY- Brooklyn. No matter what look you are going for in your engagement photos, you will find the perfect spot in Brooklyn.

DUMBO

Ah, Dumbo. We have shot at Dumbo more times than we can count! But each and every time, there is something new to see and do. With the NYC skyline, Brooklyn Bridge and Manhattan Bridge as your backdrop, we love to shoot there during the day and evening so you can get two different looks for your photos. During our time together, we love to explore the surrounding area with our couples which includes the park, Jane’s Carousel and the cobblestone streets.

Prospect Park

A Brooklyn staple, with so many things to do- Prospect Park is a beautiful option for your engagement photos. Perfect for any season, exploring the trails and architecture provides you with a variety of beautiful images.

Coney Island

We have only shot in Coney Island once and boy, would we love to go back! Ideally, not on a weekend though (have we mentioned how packed all of these places can get??) Coney Island adds so much fun to your photos as you play carnival games together or munch on some Nathan’s hot dogs!

Brooklyn Neighborhoods

Brooklyn is known for its beautiful neighborhoods full of artwork, brownstones, and waterfront views of NYC. We have enjoyed exploring local streets that scream “Brooklyn” with our clients.

Moving on along to the forgotten borough and Jenn’s hometown- Staten Island! We haven’t shot here much because as all Staten Islanders know- there isn’t much to do! But we do enjoy the locations we have shot at!

Clove Lake Park

Clove Lake is probably the most well known park on the North Shore of Staten Island. There is plenty of grounds to explore with walking paths, bridges and the lake.

Snug Harbor

The Snug Harbor Cultural Center is photo session central. It has a great mix of historical buildings, gardens, and fountains that people love!

For our last New York engagement photo location (although trust us, there are so many more than what we have shown here- we just haven’t been yet!), let’s go further up north to Sleepy Hollow, NY.

Rockwood Hall State Park

We love this park. It’s so tranquil with so many beautiful trees, pathways and special elements such as the foundation of the old Rockefeller property and views of the Hudson River.
