Bonnie and Austin’s Gantry Park Long Island City engagement session was a return to their roots. Having lived in Long Island City just two years before, this was a special time to spend together in their old stomping grounds. They showed me their favorite little spots by the water and of course, the breathtaking view of Manhattan. We had a mix of clouds, rain, and sun during our time together and were able to get some really amazing looks in the varying light and changing scenery. However, despite the weather, Long Island City was the perfect location for their engagement photos, as it held so many memories for them. They were able to show me their favorite spots and share stories of their time there, making the session even more intimate and personal.
Equally as powerful, the stunning view of Manhattan provided a dramatic backdrop for their photos, with the iconic skyline towering over the waters of the East River. The changing weather brought different moods and atmospheres to the shoot, resulting in a diverse range of photos that truly captured the essence of their relationship.
Shot on both film and digital, the photos from Bonnie and Austin’s Gantry Park engagement session exude a classic yet modern feel. The mix of mediums adds depth and dimension to the photos, highlighting the beauty of the surroundings and the couple’s love for each other.
Whether strolling along the waterfront or cuddled up in a cozy embrace, Bonnie and Austin’s chemistry was undeniable. Their love shone through in every photo, and their connection was palpable. This Long Island City engagement session is a beautiful tribute to their love story and the memories they made in this special place.
