Brooklyn rooftop engagement shoot

June 3, 2011

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!
