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 Romantic Proposals at Palma NYC

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 […]

Photographing a Holiday Proposal at Tavern on the Green

When I tell you I was stunned when I stepped foot at 11 Hoyt Brooklyn, that’s an understatement. In August, I joined a group of invited photographers to an influencer event in Downtown Brooklyn that was hosted by Optimist Consulting and Corcoran Sunshine, part of the Corcoran Group. They have some of the most beautiful […]

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

Following the completion of construction at 368 Third Avenue, I was invited to Vu New York to photograph the property, amenities and view. Coming back to this neighborhood was a literal walk down memory lane since it’s a few blocks away from where I went to college. The transformation of the area is absolutely astonishing, […]

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

Believe it or not, this phenomenon is not unique to New York City! In general, depending on the time of year and location, anything could technically be a sun-related henge. That being said, it’s always exciting to see the literal ball of sun so close through a social construct! As a New York City photographer, this is […]

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. […]

Since 2018, you might have seen on Instagram epic pictures of the sun directly in the center of the NYC grid. First coined by the astrophysicist, Neil deGrasse Tyson this phenomenon is called Manhattanhenge, and it’s when the setting sun can be seen aligning precisely between the buildings of Manhattan’s grid. When Is Manhattanhenge The […]

Down in the grungy section of the East Village resides The Bowery Electric NYC, which is where I photographed up-and-coming singer/songwriter Ella Galvin for her first New York City concert. Growing up partying in the East Village area during college and my early twenties, The Bowery Electric is exactly the type of venue I envisioned […]
