I couldn’t possibly begin to explain how incredible Ash is! I contacted her a few months back in regards to proposing to my longtime girlfriend. She was extremely helpful in helping me pick out the perfect package for my venue. I chose the Rockefeller Center, and she has shot there many times before. The best part is that she was able to give me a TON of great tips to make the day flow perfectly while my girlfriend didn’t suspect a thing! I wouldn’t have been able to get through the day without Ash’s help. We are absolutely in LOVE with the way the photos came out. I could not have chose a better photographer, and I HIGHLY recommend her to any and all who are planning a special event. I will definitely be booking her again for the wedding! 🙂

“Photos are amazing. The locations are perfect. The light is perfect. All of the pics are just very candid and real which is EXACTLY what we wanted. I cannot even begin to tell you how thankful and appreciative we are for all of your hard work and for delivering photos that exceeded all of our expectations. From the moment I reached out to you to see if this was a possibility until now, you have been a pleasure to work with and we are forever grateful for making the most special day of our lives (to date) absolutely perfect.”

A proposal can be a very nerve-wracking experience, especially if you are trying to make it an extra-special occasion for you and your soon-to-be fiancée. I was in a similar situation recently when proposing to my now fiancée. While confident that she would say yes as this is something we both want, being able to pull it off in the perfect way with meaning and thought behind it was something that I was very concerned about. Not only did I want the setting to be perfect, but I wanted something that would help to immortalize this momentous occasion.

This is where Ash Fox comes in. My fiancée loves taking pictures, so I had the idea to book a proposal photographer to capture every moment of the proposal and aftermath. There are more than a few to choose from in the NYC area, but after careful research, I chose to go with Ash because I was most impressed with her work – the high quality of the pictures and their effectiveness in capturing the feeling with each proposal was something that stood out from the pack.

Not only does Ash take great pictures, but she also has a sharp mind to help you in coming up with ideas on locations to propose, as well as important tips for the moment of truth. For my particular proposal, we went through several ideas until settling on the Astor Chinese Garden Court in the Metropolitan Museum of Art. My girlfriend is from Shanghai and I wanted to incorporate an element of Chinese culture and history into the proposal. Ash helped me to settle on this idea and did a great job of acting as a bystander when being asked by my fiancée to take our picture in the garden.

Throughout everything, Ash was very easy to work with and did a good job of communicating effectively. We even ran into a little snag at the Met when she was not allowed to check the bottle of champagne that I ordered, but Ash was resourceful and we were able to enjoy it outside of the museum when we were done taking pictures inside. Ash also made our pictures available to us well ahead of the projected time, which is a further testament to her commitment to quality work and customer service.

If you’re thinking about proposing and are on the fence about booking a proposal photographer, do it and contact Ash Fox today. I’m glad I did, and I’m overjoyed with the results!


ASH was amazing to work with. she helped me pull off a amazing proposal. so helps takes the stress out of all the planning. i highly recommend using her

Anthony Maione

Very thankful for Ash and her photography skills. She was very helpful from the first email to the actual proposal. Definitely the best in NYC!

I don’t know how many more 5 star ratings a person needs … but, here is another one! Ash was amazing to deal with. From Start to Finish! I planned a NYC engagement all the way from Alberta, Canada. She literally walked me through and advised me every step of the way. She helped me with what to say, how to actually do the proposal itself, she accurately predicted how my fiance would react and what she would do once I popped the question! What an amazing resource she was for this process. And, this is all above and beyond the pictures she took!
The pictures, too, were perfect! She took a good amount, caught us doing some cute things which made for amazing candid type shots. She also then walked us to a few key parts of NY and took a few more to provide us with a good variety of photos.
She was super professional, prompt, trustworthy and delivered on all commitments. I am very grateful that I found here when I started my blind Goggle Search for a NYC Engagement Photographer!

Jesse Kupina

She’s truly fantastic to work with. Thank you so much for photographing our proposal!


Dear Ash,

Mare and I are sitting on the couch scrolling through these photos and she is drowning in a sea of tears. These photographs are truly wonderful, and we are going to cherish them forever. Thank you SO MUCH for your professionalism, your careful eye, and for keeping us both on track while we were in such a daze last Saturday.

What excellent work – I even look OK with the beard! You really captured the fun and irreplaceable moments. And Mare looks absolutely gorgeous.

Thank you again! We are just thrilled!

I would highly recommend ASH FOX for a more personalized experience!

William Stagg

Ash Fox did such a great job, everything went so smoothly from planning from across the country weeks in advance, to secretly meeting the day of the proposal. The pictures turned out fantastic. Thank you so much for still coming out in the 0 degree weather.

I would highly recommend Ash for any special occasion. The photos are amazing! A few of or friends have already asked about them, so we are gladly recommending her for their future events.

K Larsen

From start to finish it was a fantastic experience. Ash was very helpful, flexible and patient when I was trying to determine the best spot. The photos turned out extremely well and really helped made the day complete. I would recommend her services for any event really but if you are looking to do a surprise engagement in NY, look no further than her.

Jd Walt

Not only is Ash an incredible photographer, who can make your photos unique from everyone else’s, she couldn’t do anything more to help you with the planning and preparation of the proposal, especially with giving tips on how and when to propose. Would definitely recommend Ash, our photos turned out better than we could have hoped and everyone who seen them were very impressed too.

Alan Sharkey

I would recommend Ash to anyone looking for a photographer in NYC. My experience with her was amazing – from planning my proposal all the way from a different continent to the proposal and photoshoot itself and finally to the stunning photos. Thank you – once again! 🙂

Leslie Cheng

we wanted to thank you for helping us have the most wonderful day of our lives, you captured the happiness that we felt and we couldn’t be more happier with the final result!
You were amazing and we can see that you are passionate about your job because of such beautiful portraits that you gave us, truly an amazing memory that we will be able to share with our future kids and grand kids.

From the bottom of our hearts thaaaank youuuu!

Ash was lovely to work with and gave us great photos! It was so special to have this unforgettable moment documented!

Tara Sheridan

These are fantastic! Thank you so much for making the engagement weekend just perfect. We love these photos and are looking forward to having them all over our home.

Thanks again,


Matthew Raynor

Ash really was an amazing photographer! She really caught the special moment and made my fiancé and I feel so comfortable. She is a very sweet person and is very easy to work with. Her expert opinion really helped us capture some incredible pictures!

Nick T. Vomero

My fiance and I were very excited to receive the pictures and were very happy with how they came out. The pictures are beautiful and it has been a joy sharing them with all of our family and friends. We cannot thank Ash enough for them. We really appreciated her professionalism, kindness, and positive attitude throughout the process as it made the moment that much more special for us. We couldn’t have asked for a better photographer. Highly recommend her to anyone looking for beautiful photos of their engagement or any other special event that they may want to keep a memory of for the rest of their lives.

I utilized Ash’s services last June (2014) when I proposed and I have neglected to write a review, we just hit the 1 year anniversary of the proposal and I remembered that I needed to write a review. My Fiance, Laura, is a huge fan of the movie You’ve Got Mail. I took her all around the city at the various film locations until finally reaching the destination where Tom Hanks’ character reveals he is NY152 to Meg Ryan’s character. I don’t believe our photos are on her website but I can assure you that they are wonderful and we get compliments on them all the time. Did I mention that Ash was super helpful with helping me plan everything out? She was in constant contact with me and was in the exact right location and gave me all of the necessary instructions so that the pictures would turn out perfect (listen to her when she says to stay down on your knee as long as possible!!!! We got so many great shots). Ash then set us up in various locations to ensure that we got great pictures, which we did. I would absolutely recommend using Ash. I did an extensive amount of research before choosing Ash and I am extremely glad that I did.

Jason Walton

When it came to my proposal, I knew I wanted a photographer, the question was just, who? After looking at about 4 different photographer’s portfolios, there was no question that Ash Fox was the ONE. The quality of the pictures in her portfolio are the best you will find in the area.

We spoke on the phone to brainstorm location and ideas and she couldn’t have been more professional. During the day of the surprise proposal, she followed us from the ferry (Manhattan) to Dumbo/Brooklyn and took amazing surprise, in-action shots and the proposal, while my fiancé had no idea. The moment was perfect! Ash, thanks again! We will definitely continue to spread the word of your amazing services!

This review is long overdue. I used Ash Fox Photography last summer (July of 2014) for my surprise engagement pics in Times Square. I live in Florida and I had a very small window to plan a once in a lifetime experience for my girlfriend (now wife). I did a lot of research and I was looking for the best of the best. After reading several reviews, looking at sample portfolios and watching one of Ash’s introduction videos, I made a couple phone calls. From the first phone call I was amazed at her professionalism and ability to understand exactly what I wanted.

Ash did more than just take pictures. She created the perfect engagement experience. I live in Florida and had never even been to NYC before this. I told Ash what I was looking to do and some of the various elements I wanted to capture and she steered me to the right locale and helped plan how it would all unfold. I asked for some “iconic New York” pictures and that’s exactly what I got.

I’m not sure I can find the right adjectives to do justice to Ash’s pictures. I can tell you that they are second to none. A friend of mine who does newborn and maternity photography initially told me that she did not want to do photos for my newborn because she had seen my engagement pics and didn’t think she could hold a candle to the type of quality that I was now used to. I’m not sure if I can use other names here…but she compared the quality of Ash’s photos to Meg Bitton.

I am so thankful that I trusted Ash Fox with my engagement. I can’t recommend her enough!

Ash Fox photographed our surprise proposal at the Top of the Rock and was amazing to work with! She went out of her way to help me plan a perfect proposal… from countless emails, phone calls, and texts… she was so easy to work with. She worked with me to make sure the proposal went off without a hitch! Her “acting skills” to keep the proposal a secret were great! After the proposal, Ash took pictures around Rockfeller Center and helped us make it a memorable experience… she really made us feel like models! She even recommended a great restaurant for dinner later that night!

As if all of that wasn’t enough, the pictures blew us away. She got them back to us very quickly (just 3 weeks), and we now have over 250 pictures to remember the proposal with!

Ash Fox is an absolutely incredible photographer!

John Sutherland

This is a few months past due, but I have to take a moment and say, that if you’re wanting photography in the Big Apple, you absolutely must hire Ash Fox photography. There just aren’t the words to describe how great our session was. First it was a surprise proposal, and she worked with me to make it amazing. I’m an East Tennessee country boy, I know my way around the big spots in NYC, but Ashley taught us all about some not so well known, but amazing spots. I could go on for an hour about all the details and how amazing it was and how the final product was simply incomparable. But, for the same reason it took me several months to get around to posting a review, I have to go! I may be the busiest person on Earth, lol. But take my word for it, if you need photography, Ash Fox photography is the way to go!

Jesse Lunsford

My fiance reached out to Ash before he proposed and we are both so happy that he did! The moment passes by so quickly and I love that we have it all captured. We also recently took engagement photos with Ash and they were just as amazing. Her personality is just as wonderful as her work and we look forward to having Ash photograph our wedding day!

Rebecca Turner Garvey

It was a pleasure working with Ash. I wanted to arrange a photographer to be there for our surprise engagement in Central Park and Ash was not only the first photographer to get back to me, she was also the most friendly and easy to work with as we planned the day. We had some minor unexpected changes on the day-of and Ash was flexible and kept us focused on the excitement of the day. And of course the pictures turned out great! Highly recommended for her professionalism and skill.

Eden Brandeis

I planned a surprise proposal for my girlfriend of 3 years in the same restaurant I asked her to be my girlfriend. When I reached out to Ash, from the very first day we spoke she was AMAZING! From her ideas to our follow up conversations leading on to the special day she was exactly what I was looking for. My fiancé loved Ash, from her professionalism to her easy going attitude! When we received our pictures, only one word…. PERFECTION! I would recommend Ash for your special event hands down!

Lily Colon

Okay, I’m not even sure where to begin to express how happy I am with the pictures that Ash took of my surprise proposal to my now fiancé Christi. I had planned to take Christi to New York for a surprise proposal and I knew that I wanted to propose in Times Square but I wasn’t sure how to make it work. I ran across Ash’s website and while looking at her pictures I saw the perfect shot so I contacted her. Needless to say she was awesome. She laid out the plan on how to make the proposal work and it happened like clockwork. After I popped the question, Ash spent time with us walking through Times Square taking spectacular photos that will always remind us of our special moment in New York. I would highly recommend her to anyone getting engaged or just wanting some professional photographs because you will be very pleased with the results.

Gregory Ables

Ash captured one of the memorable events in my life. She took amazing pictures of my proposal in Bryant Park. She was fun to work with and very helpful through the entire process. She really knows and loves her craft well! I’m glad that I chose her as my photographer! Kudos!

I surprised my girlfriend with a trip to NYC for our engagement last December. Ali had never before been to New York and she fell in love with the vibrant feel of the City. After a few amazing days of romantic dinners, a Broadway Show, Christmas Spectacular, a walking tour of the city and endless shopping, the highlight was proposing to Ali on the ice at the Rockefeller Center beneath the recently lit Rockefeller Christmas Tree. I found Ash via her website a month or so prior to our trip and asked if she could help “capture the moment.” Ash was outstanding. Her pictures were stunning and her efforts to aid me in my planning of the weekend were beyond the call of duty. She is a true professional. She stayed out of view (so as not to ruin my surprise) and took really nice photos of Ali and I just skating around “having a good time” prior to the proposal, which captured the feel of the night. And then her photos as I knelt down to propose and thereafter were spectacular. I am so glad I contacted her. I would recommend her with the highest conviction. Thanks Ash. Phenomenal job. And as a quick update…Ali and I are now married…and hope to visit NYC again this December to recapture the moment. Cheers!.

Scott McClure

I recently proposed to my long-time girlfriend in New York and I was lucky enough to have Ash there to document the big night for us with her excellent photography! Ash’s pictures were top-notch and my fiancée and I are thrilled with them. But more importantly, Ash is a gem of person – she was easy to coordinate and communicate with, helped w the logistics of the event and even helped me secure a videographer and a violinist for the event. All in all, our special night would not have happened without Ash’s help and hard work … I’d recommend her to anyone looking for a great photographer for any event.


Having Ash to not only take amazing pictures for my proposal, but also to be kind enough to give me her helpful advise on when, where, and what time to propose was priceless. She was very knowledgeable, fun, and of course professional. I would hire her again with out a second thought!

Raymond W

Ash made the entire proposal experience special–from proposal planning with her knowledge of the city, to having a blast during the shoot in so many different locations. She was very fun to work with and I am glad that I chose her to capture such an important moment!

Brendan Pidgeon

Ash was a pleasure to work with. Very helpful with proposal planning, creative and fun during photoshoot and perfectly on time with photos that turned out great.
