Brooklyn Engagement

Sarah and Dan's Snowy Engagement Session!

At our consult last summer, Sarah expressed that she would love to have her engagement session at Prospect Park in the snow. All season, I kept this in mind, privately stressing over how mild our winter had been. In late January, nearly a year to the date from their engagement, Brooklyn was hit by Winter Storm Jonas; blanketing Prospect Park in over two feet of snow! Sarah, Dan and I jumped at this opportunity and used the fresh storm to create the perfect wintery background for their session. Magically, almost a year before, they became engaged when Dan proposed in snowy Prospect Park. We reminisced about their day and celebrated the beauty of our surroundings. I had a blast standing in snow up to my knees, capturing this gorgeous couple during our time together. 

Thank you Dan and Sarah for a wonderful afternoon! I am so eager for your October wedding - see you in the Berkshires! 

A Winter Mini Session!

After crazy meteorological reports, New York City was pretty much stopped at a halt today for Winter Storm Juno. With the lack of reliable public transportation, us Brooklynites were stuck home with only 6" of snow on the ground. Despite the predicament, I was inspired by the snowfall and had to take advantage of the lovely backdrop. Today I photographed my great friends Ashley and Brett in our neighborhood of South Slope Brooklyn. We walked along Green-Wood Cemetery with their pit mix Mason while enjoying the winter weather. Only two blocks from our shared block, we found beautiful scenic places to stop and take photos.

My mini session rates are $250 for up to one hour - please email me at jenna.salvagin@gmail.com to check my availability!

Julia and Evan's Very Green Engagement Session

  Julia and Evan have been residing together in Brooklyn for three years. A fundraiser for the Rainforest Alliance, Julia spends her free time performing as a singer/songwriter and chronicling her eco conscious lifestyle at her blog Color Me Green. Evan is a software developer and musician that plays in two rock bands.

 

I met up with them at Grumpy Cafe, a local coffee shop that Evan insists has the best espresso in the city. From there, we strolled through iconic Park Slope and Prospect Park West, before we made our way into Prospect Park. North bound, we exited the park at Grand Army Plaza and perused the weekly farmer's market. Finally, we headed east to the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens, the location where Evan proposed to Julia late last summer.

 

Come June, I will be photographing their wedding on Evan's family farm in New Jersey. Stay tuned for more gorgeous photos of this lovely couple!

Curtis & Erin's Greenpoint Engagement Session

As we walked around Greenpoint today, Erin, Curtis and I all mused about how a good day can be measured by how many dogs you meet on the street. Following this structure, we can all agree that this engagement session went really well. Strolling around Greenpoint, we amused ourselves by creeping on every single dog we passed (in antique cars! on stoops with elderly folk! on a string coming out of a church!) and taking notice of the change of graffiti, restaurants and the general landscape since they moved from Frankin Street two years ago.
