Engagement Shoot At Pier Fifty-Three In New York

Three days after Christmas Day, we met at Pier Fifty-Three for our engagement shoot with M’Ral and Mitch. We set off our feet at Pier Fifty-Three to get stunning shots of the Christmas trees. We were surprised to see that the Christmas trees were still there even though the Christmas holidays had passed. So, we took the liberty to get M’Ral and Mitch’s photos around the trees. 


M’Ral and Mitch’s engagement shoot began inside the shop we found at the pier. I liked taking their photos while walking at the dock that overlooks the Brooklyn Bridge, as it set their mood and gave them a sense of comfort and fun. M’Ral and Mitch took the chance to pose casually yet sweetly around the trees. 


Mitch brought with him his guitar as a prop for a sweet photo as he seemingly serenaded M’Ral. We also had M’Ral’s ring shot sitting atop the pavement and the tree’s twig to highlight her precious gem. 

Thank You

I loved shooting this wedding here so much!  This couple were fantastic to work with and their friends and family were absolutely hilarious people to be around!
