Lauren & John’s Proposal Photography in NYC
John & Lauren had an amazing surprise proposal in New York. This amazing moment where John popped the question created incredible memories. From planning a proposal to the mini engagement photo session afterwards, these two were an absolute dream. This surprise proposal photography session in NYC will forever be dear to our hearts.
Planning a Proposal in New York
Planning a proposal in NYC can be a wild experience. We’re excited to help couples with planning proposal photography in New York City. Surprise proposals are one of the most fun parts of our job! We love being wedding photographers, but secret proposal photography is also so much fun.
Capturing surprise proposals lets us photograph couples through every step of their marriage journey. From the proposal photos, to the engagement party, to their engagement photos, to the wedding, we’re there to capture it all. But how did we get connected with this wonderful couple to capture their special moment?
Finding an NYC Proposal Photographer
John was connected with us for this secret proposal on social media. We were so excited to hear about John’s idea for a proposal location in NY. Madison Square Park is a beautiful place to be. It’s even special in our relationship, which made is so much more fun to capture.
Getting the Perfect Shot for this Special Moment
In order to capture the perfect proposal, we had to come up with an idea. To plan the perfect proposal moment, we decided with John to pretend to be tourists. We’d head over to Madison Square Park for the time to pop the question. Pretending to be tourists lets us be inconspicuous, even though we have a bunch of camera gear.
Why Should You Have a Proposal Photographer?
Hiring a professional photographer to capture the moment will be so valued in your future. Proposals go by in a complete whirlwind. Having someone there to capture your perfect proposal will let you relive those memories for the rest of your life. Whether you’re getting engaged at the Brooklyn Bridge or Central Park, having a professional photographer is a game-changer.
You can always ask a stranger to capture the moment, which happens for many proposals in NYC. However, a proposal photographer does so much more than just capture the moment. As New York City proposal photographers, we take the time to plan it all out with you. We figure out the best proposal locations together, work on timing, and create an experience.
John Pops the Question in NYC
The big day arrived, and we went on our way to photograph one of the most fun marriage proposals. In order to capture everything correctly, we showed up early – just in case. John arrived first and told Lauren to meet him there to walk the dog. He told her to dress up for dinner with family after, so she arrived looking ready to go.
We approached Lauren as “tourists” and asked if we could photograph her dog “for Instagram.” Being the amazing person Lauren is, she said “of course.” As we began snapping pictures, John proceeded to get down on one knee. It was time to pop the question.
It was an amazing moment of realization that came across Lauren’s face in the moment. This was an amazing marriage proposal to remember. Within beautiful Madison Square Park in NYC, these two agreed to forever.
A Mini Engagement Photo Session on the Rooftop
After the proposal photos, we walked around and let these two compose themselves for a moment. We did a mini engagement photo session around the park. Then, they took us to our rooftop for some final photographs as the sun set. This proposal photography was so memorable and beautiful.
A classic mix of New York elements brought this entire proposal together. As proposal photographers in NYC, we see a lot of beautiful moments. This one was an amazing, standout moment. We’re so happy to capture the start of the next chapter for this terrific couple.
After the proposal photography shoot was over, we headed home to immediately edit these photos. We want our couples to have their professional proposal photos in NYC immediately after it’s happened. That way, they don’t have to wait to post on social media or show family and friends.
Congratulations to John & Lauren
We’re so excited to continue to capture the story of this wonderful couple. These two are going to wed later this year. It’s going to be absolutely lovely! We’re so glad we connected to become their NYC proposal photographers.
Now, we’re lucky enough to be capturing the rest of their story too. Congratulations to Lauren & John! We can’t wait to see how the next chapters of your love story unfold. Your New York proposal photography session was a timeless capture to hold on to for the rest of your lives.
