A Dumbo Elopement on a Rainy Day

Like many couples who planned their wedding in 2020, Sharon and Sameer had to postpone their big celebration. However they decided in the meantime to still get hitched and have an intimate Dumbo elopement.

Planning a Small Intimate Wedding

We started the photoshoot at their place in Park Slope, while they were getting ready. I always love to shoot that part because it’s “the calm before the storm”. It allows me to witness sacred little moments in time; which are usually a big part of the bride and groom’s story.

Then we headed to Dumbo to take their bride and groom photos. Sharon and Sameer both looked so chic. I loved the details on Sharon’s dress; the delicate straps and beautiful white pearls on her corset. Gorgeous!

Rainy Wedding Photo Ideas

It was a foggy day and it even rained at times, but it actually gave a romantic and whimsical feel to their wedding. Sharon bought a transparent umbrella that ended up being the perfect prop for the occasion.

I really connected with both of them, and can’t wait to witness other big moments in their lives. Sharon sent me this after receiving her photos: “THANK YOU SO MUCH for these gorgeous photos!! Sorry for the delay in our response – we were busy going through them over and over again and sending to them to our family, friends, and other vendors. You captured the happiness and excitement we felt on that day so brilliantly. I love that we have so many quintessential NYC/Brooklyn photos now that we’ll truly cherish forever. I can’t wait to have another milestone in my life so that we can work with you again. Thank you thank you and I’m sure we’ll see you again very soon!!”

I couldn’t ask for better feedback from a bride and a groom. Those words really mean everything for a wedding photographer!
