There’s no better way to take Brooklyn Bridge Engagement photos than sunrise—it’s amazing seeing the bridge with nobody on it. No traffic, plenty of parking—it’s totally worth it! (aside for the getting up early part, but hey, Starbucks is open!)

There are a lot of great spots within a short walking distance to take photos in DUMBO, Brooklyn. It’s best to start on the Brooklyn Bridge. As the sun rises, it can be difficult to take photographs with the NYC skyline in the background.

For our session, we started on the bridge and made our way to Pebble Beach and finally to Washington Street, with the iconic view of the Manhattan Bridge in the background. It ended up being a perfect morning!BridgeBrooklyn Bridge Engagement Photos Alone
