Amette + Michael | Engaged DUMBO, Brooklyn NY

He’s a skilled driver and like me she’s a skilled backseat driver (Guilty as charged).  13 years ago Amette + Michael met at Long Island University’s Radio station (WLIU) as freshmans. Later on he became the music director/DJ and she became the general manager of the Radio station. More than a decade later they are still making sweet music together (I’m cheesy, I know). Even though my depiction of them may be classified as cheesy, it is still every bit true. As I was shooting their engagement session I noticed how comfortable they were with each other and how they moved in sync.  Like two songs on a good mixed tape they flowed together effortlessly. You know that amazing feeling you feel when the DJ plays your favorite song? That’s how you feel when you’re around Amette + Michael.


This shoot took place in the DUMBO part of Brooklyn, New York. **And by the way DUMBO stands for “Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass” … Well yeah I didn’t know that either.**
