hip joyful brooklyn engagement session || alisa & ryan


this hip joyful brooklyn engagement session spoke to the soul. you know when you are walking down the street and you can just tell when a couple is meant to be, the couple wears it on their faces and body language? well thats alisa and ryan. and you can so clearly see that from the emotion in their hip joyful brooklyn engagement session.

alisa and ryan live in brooklyn, and they thought it would be super cool to hop around their neighborhood and photograph them in their natural element for their brooklyn engagement session. well, we found those cool corners of the neighborhood. the unique little gems. the spots you don’t see unless if you open your eyes and alisa and ryan were literally down for it all. i adoreeeee being given the chance to walk around a few blocks and find those “spots no one has shot before” (even though yes i am aware that people have shot at the canal before ๐Ÿ˜› ) but mostly all spots no one has photographed before. ๐Ÿ˜›

we strolled through Carroll Gardens, stopped for a drink at Frankies, and they grabbed some produce from their local market (that they actually do shop at frequently) – so of course the market was my fav because it was literally exactly who they were.

i am seriously so excited for their collective retreats wedding in august. (that’ll be another blog post to come in the fall i’m sure) so keep your eyes wide open for these cuties later on in the year!

if you’ve ever thought about doing a city love session, engagement session, any kind of session – hit me up here!
