Why Brooklyn Heights is the Best Neighborhood for Engagement Photos

The Brooklyn Heights neighborhood is the perfect location for classic, timeless film engagement photos. The serene, tree-lined streets and stunning brownstones offer the most picturesque charm. Green spaces and parks are nestled between historic Civil War Era homes and pristine modern rentals. This attractive and accessible neighborhood is both a waterfront destination and a place to take in some of the best skyline views of Manhattan.

New York Wedding Photographer Shooting Digital and Film

With an editorial style, we blend film and digital, allowing us to tell a creative and richly authentic story of your day. All of the images in this post were shot on film, using Fuji 400h and a Contax 645.

We prioritize a relationship with our clients because you show up differently when you know the person with the camera. Most importantly, our images are a reflection of the profound love you have cultivated and the exciting life that’s before you.

Learn more about Mary Dougherty and inquire if you resonate with her candid, natural style.

What to wear for your NYC engagement session

Choosing the right outfits for your engagement session can depend largely on the location. While most couples like a laid-back yet refined look it doesn’t hurt to dress up. You can always decide on two different looks (and even locations). See how Kerri + Cam did that here and here. Find our Pinterest board filled with outfit inspiration here.
