So here’s a fun take on a photoshoot…a collaboration between Brookelyn Photography and You + me* is always interesting..it starts off with an inspiration board and a cryptic set of directions, and goes from there!
for your photoshoot, we would like to capture the essence of your life as a couple in New York. Our concept for your shoot is “refined paparazzi”–we’re not going to go chasing you down the street or anything, but for the first part of the shoot, we’d like to capture images of you without you posing at all. To get the spontaneity we’re looking for, we’ll send you a box with some provisions for the shoot, and with a note telling you where to meet us. When you get to said place, you’ll text us letting us know you’re there, and then set off to explore the place together for about a half hour. We’ll be behind the scenes taking pictures of you as if you’re just going about your day. After we’ve gotten some truly un-posed images, we’ll meet up with you, and get some posed photos that still have an essence of spontaneity.

A pop of yellow is always so happy, especially when it comes as a flirty dress and lots of balloons!

Claire and Mike were originally married in New Zealand, but really wanted to take some shots in their current hometown of NYC…I think a job well done! I love that it took me a little while to realize that some of the shots were taken at the Highline…its always refreshing to see a different take on a beautiful space.

I’m totally loving this shoot that Courtney of Merriment Events did with photographer extraordinaire, Katie Stoops! Its got such a great vintage vibe, and I definitely think that last photo with the piano is my favorite! Courtney gives a little insight below…
Our couple are college sweethearts. They’re everything that being young and in love is about.
Since we were on a college campus in this magnificent old house called “Camelot,” we took a lot of our inspiration directly from the surroundings.
Camelot is a Grey Gardens kind of place. A house you can imagine was magnificent in its day, but has since fallen in disrepair. The disrepair is the cool part though. I felt like we were going back in time, to the kind of place where vintage books line bookshelves and unpolished silver is plentiful.
