I recently had the opportunity to capture another surprise proposal that unfolded at The Ludlow Hotel, a chic luxury boutique haven nestled in the heart of Manhattan’s trendy Lower East Side. On an unseasonably warm November day, when autumn took a back seat and spring vibes took center stage, a magical love story was about […]

Capturing A Love Proposal at The Ludlow Hotel

The Lower Manhattan skyline is framed with a "will you marry me" proposal set up on the terrace of The Ludlow Hotel.

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: there’s something truly magical about photographing surprise proposals. It was a crisp and warm autumn day in October, and I had the honor of capturing another old colleague’s surprise proposal to his now-fiancée. The setting was the iconic Bow Bridge in Central Park, and the day […]

As a photographer, there’s no greater affirmation of your craft than when clients return to you, entrusting you with their precious memories once again. Such was the case when I received a call from a couple whose love story I had the honor of documenting last year. Their journey, which began with a breathtaking proposal […]

As someone who captures moments in time, photographing an NYC City Hall elopement can be a unique and rewarding experience. Not everyone wants a day of grandeur. For some, a simple civil ceremony is enough. My best friend, Danny, asked me to be his witness and helped capture his big day with his girlfriend, Zoe, […]

Hudson River Park Proposal

I had the opportunity to photograph not one, but two surprise proposals within a month of each other at the Italian restaurant, Palma, in New York City during the winter. It’s easily become my most frequented vendor since I’m there at least once a year. Both proposers had planned to pop the question to their […]

Photographing a surprise proposal at Tavern on the Green in NYC during the holidays is a truly special and romantic occasion. I always pass by Tavern on the Green when I’m at Central Park but never went inside. The holiday decorations there are such a cozy vibe! As a photographer, it’s always a privilege to […]

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

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 […]
