Brooklyn is such a magical place, and every single time we see engagement photos on the Brooklyn Bridge, our heart swells a little bit more. Shira + Zin chose their favorite city to celebrate their engagement, and asked Kerri Lynne (who they had met on a flight home from Florida) to capture it all. From the incredible views of Brooklyn Bridge Park all the way to iconic Brooklyn Bridge, we love that this session tells a story of their relationship and most importantly, captures a beautiful time in their lives.
From Kerri: A little over a year ago, I was on a flight to where my family lives in Sarasota, Florida. Shira was in the seat next to me on our JetBlue flight, headed down to Florida with some girlfriends for a chill bachelorette celebration at the pool. We ended up conversing about flights and being nervous to fly, and I was sharing with her what has helped my spirit feel better. I could tell Shira had a beautiful and open heart and we ended up exchanging business cards to keep in touch with each other.
Several months later, I received a Facebook message and an email from her telling me she was engaged! And she was looking for a wedding photographer! After we talked more about her and Zin, and what she was looking for on her wedding day, she told her friends how she felt so comfortable around me after that flight and she hoped to stay just as calm on her wedding day as she felt on that flight. Oh, my heart!! I just love how we connected and now I can be a part of her love story with Zin!
