Recently engaged in NYC and ready to take some engagement photos? You’ve come to the right place.
There are plenty of locations around New York to take engagement photos, but Prospect Park remains a versatile favorite.
The Brooklyn Museum has beautiful architecture, and let’s not forget the iconic YO/OY sign. Around the corner from the museum is Grand Army Plaza; it’s a great place to just chill out and look effortlessly cool.
A short walk across the street from Grand Army plaza is Prospect Park itself. On this particular day, the sun was shining bright and plenty of folks had picnics and frisbee games. It’s a very happy, wide-open space. Perfect energy for engagement photos.
The park itself has plenty of space to spread out and make your own. You can bring a picnic blanket, snacks, flowers, etc. and have your own little magazine-spread-worthy photoshoot. In addition to the park, you have the architecture of the Brooklyn Museum and Grand Army Plaza at your disposal. It makes for a very dynamic photo session.
When you take a short walk through the park, there’s a super cool small brick building and little fountain. The shadows become very artsy when the sun is at the right angle — highly recommend utilizing this area.
