Brooklyn rooftop engagement shoot

Categories   Engagements

We just love it when a rockstar photographer like Trent Bailey teams up with a visionary mind like Molly of Glitter+Rye. Add in super adorable couple RG and Lisa, a Brooklyn rooftop overlooking the sunset, and you’ve got one fab engagement sesh.

Molly set out to create a whimsical, “urban campsite” with lots of bohemian details – – the talent she has up her sleeve is insane, right? And, it’s no lie that Trent’s ethereal lighting in these shots brings us to our knees.

A little secret from Molly: “Pulling from my collection of vintage sheets for glitter + rye, we chose colorful patterns to contrast the more gritty Brooklyn water tower and the shining Manhattan skyline.

When planning an engagement shoot, be sure to treat it like the celebration it is. Take the time to come up with a fun and romantic setting where you feel both special and comfortable. Weave your love story into the scene – whether that’s with locations or props, and have a blast!“. Such perfect advice – we couldn’t agree more! Hope we helped get the ball rolling with ways that you can make your engagement photos memorable and personal to you. Thanks for the amazing tips Molly! You and Trent make quite the team!

The "urban campsite" theme is such a great concept. I love it when couples really spend time planning a creative and unique engagement shoot.

So cute! I love the tent! It's nice to see other couples that remind me of my bf & I! Don't see enough interracial couples like ours...It's funny we look a little similar & have similar names, weird, lol :)

I totally want that quilt.

Wendy on Jun 11, 2011

Molly...Absolutely beautiful. What talent!

Liz on Jun 13, 2011

Please, someone post the location! I'm getting married in brooklyn and am looking for the perfect roof for our special day.

Molly (glitter + rye) on Jun 16, 2011

Hello and thank you all so much for the kind words! Our hearts are just swelling. I apologize that my site is on the fritz.. a new one is on its way in just a couple of short weeks! Whew! I wanted to answer a couple of questions and comments: The rooftop is atop a private apartment building in Williamsburg, just down the street from the Brooklyn Brewery and, unfortunately, I do not believe they do private events. It's a great area however with wonderful views and I'm sure somebody around there hosts weddings! The quilt is a double-ring wedding quilt that was made for my own mother's wedding and was passed onto me when I get married not too long ago- isn't it stunning!? The colors blow me away. If you have any questions, please email me at and thanks again!!
