Ahh I got engaged there!!  Love it!  Your pics are going to be so fun!  I love that dress, too.  If you’re worried about it being too dressy, you could dress it down with flats instead of heels and casual jewelry.  Have fun!

There’s a lot of restaurants in the area.  Perhaps do a casual shoot first – go to a diner in the area, have lunch, use the rest room to change and then do the second half of the shoot.  More than one look would be great if you could swing it.

Personally I’d like something more edgy/funky to go with that area, and I don’t feel like the dress pictured fits the bill. I don’t know what you normally wear/are comfortable wearing, but since your first outfit is a shirt dress, how about jeans and a cute top? I think one dress is enough, but if you are not a jeans/pants wearer feel free to disregard my advice.

@FutureMrsSpencer:  I hadn’t even thought about the weather–you have a very valid point there. We did ours last year on Memorial Day weekend out on Governor’s Island, and both wore jeans. It wasn’t too bad since it’s at least breezy out there, but on a really hot day… And I did manage to get really sunburned, too. Don’t forget your sun block!

I still think I like the idea of shirt dress better, though.

I love the dress, but I always think that white and black are tricky on film. A bright color might pop a little more, so you might consider a colored belt or fun shoes–even red lipstick would give it a nice kick! Don’t worry so much about “matching” the scenery–it’s scenery! YOU are the star!

DUMBO’s such a great backdrop. Have fun!
