Now that the winter season is almost over, most of our recently engaged couples are looking to do their engagement photoshoots and we want to help you to find the best location for you and your fiancee so we prepared a few of our favorites. There are in no particular order so please feel free to browse trough them all.
1. Brooklyn Bridge Park
Brooklyn Bridge Park is a waterfront park along the East River in New York City. The views of the city and the traditional city feel of the area make it one of our favorite places to do an engagement session.
2. New Jersey Botanical Gardens – Skylands Manor
A popular place in NJ is the NJ Botanical Garden. Located in Ringwood it provides a wonderful background that has everything from lucious greenery to amazing architecture.
3. Grand Central Station
This epic landmark will provide each couple with a unique modern and city feel to their engagement. Usually on a engagement that we photograph over here we like to stop by the Bryant Park to make the journey complete.
4. Branch Brook Park
A hidden gem of New Jersey is the Branch Brook Park located at the border of Newark and Belleville. This amazing park is stunning during the Cherry Blossom Festival being the 2nd most popular park in the US after Washington D.C.
5. Verona Park
Wheter it is to spend a Sunday afternoon or to do your engagement session here, Branch Brook Park is one of the most beautiful parks in Essex County . Weekdays are usually ideal since the park is quiter and we can simply focus on the two of you and not have any other distractions.
6. Van Vleck House and Gardens
The Van Vleck House and Gardens is one of the hidden gems of Montclair. The gardens are right of Valley Rd coming from Route 46 and they are beautiful taken cared of by the Van Vleck Association.
7. Liberty State Park
Right of I 78 in Jersey City , the Liberty State park offers wonderful views of New York City . For all our couples that are engaged and look for a city background this is one of the most beautiful spots to get your images taken at. The park overlooks the Financial District and Staten Island.
8 . Brooklyn Bridge and City Hall
If you are a fan of NYC and would like to try something different here is a more unique place to go to . The City Hall Park and the top of the Brooklyn Bridge. It is modern, fresh and always makes us think outside the box.
9. Hoboken Waterfront
Similar to the Liberty State Park , the Hoboken Waterfront is a oasis of tranquility and great landscapes . Overlooking Midtown, the park has a nice feel and can be a great backdrop for your images.
10. Hoboken Train Station
We do like Hoboken quite a bit and this is something we think can create some trully creative images. Make sure you stop by and check it out.
11. Old Bridge Airport
Located close to the Raceway, the Old Bridge Airport is run by one of the nicest people in the world. Make sure you ask for permission and a ground of airplanes can become your background and if the owner is there maybe he`ll even take you on a flying lesson.
12. Central Park
What can we say about Central Park … Over 70 streets long and 5 avenues wide. There is a photo at every corner. We usually like to start at the corner of 5th ave and 59th street and finish close to the Fountain at Berthesdas Terrace.
13. The Jersey Shore
With miles and miles of beautiful beaches, the Jersey shore can be a great place for a more summery feel to your images. We do usually go towards the Point Pleasant area for some on New Jersey`s best spots.
