A Central Park proposal in the summer is the epitome of romance in New York City! I had the pleasure of photographing Neil Cato and his (now) fiance, Emily Hamilton when they visited NYC from Texas over the July 4th weekend. Texans seem to love me because I worked with another couple that flew up […]

Central Park Proposal In The Summer

Neil Cato and Emily Hamilton pose happily together in front of the Bethesda Terrace after their central park proposal.

Out of all the proposals I’ve photographed so far, this West Village rooftop engagement has got to be the most epic view so far! Is there anything better than a New York City sunset with the skyline? The biggest bonus was that both Jordan Zauderer and his (now) fiance, Casey was super photogenic! It’s amazing […]

West Village Rooftop Engagement

West Village rooftop engagement with the view of downtown Manhattan and the World Trade Center in the background.

The grandest gesture of love with these two! Their surprise proposal was captured during sunset in front of the famous Jane’s Carousel in Brooklyn with the epic Lower Manhattan skyline in the background. Prior to d-day, me and the (future) groom did a walkthrough of the location a few days before during a torrential downpour. […]

I had a full-circle moment photographing a surprise proposal at the Palma restaurant NYC! Back in the summer, I photographed one of my first engagement parties at this popular West Village restaurant.

Surprise Proposal At Palma Restaurant NYC

Both the Bethesda Terrace and Fountain are some of the most iconic locations in Central Park to do a photoshoot. It’s one of the first spots in New York City I recommend because it’s recognizable. My amazing client and her husband flew in from Dallas, Texas because they wanted to celebrate their one-year wedding anniversary. […]

Photographing A Bridal Shower At The Rum Runner NJ

You can’t tell by looking at these pictures, but this was my first real test of using a hot-shoe flash in a non-static environment! I was photographing a friend’s engagement dinner at Rule of Thirds in Brooklyn, and since it’s a restaurant, we were indoors with no windows. I can’t speak for all photographers, but […]
