Harris’s marriage proposal took place as the site of his very first date with his girlfriend, Tara, Mini Golfing at Chelsea Piers. Tara, thought it was a regular date night and a fun idea to go mini golfing, but she had no idea that Harris planned to propose there. I pretended to be working at the Mini Golf center blending into the atmosphere as much as possible, but I was really there to secretly photograph Harris’s proposal. After a few holes,  Harris dropped to his knee when Tara least expected it, right there on the mini golf green, with a gorgeous view of the Freedom Tower behind him. A mini golf marriage proposal is a great way to have fun and feel relaxed even though you’ll be proposing. Harris was a smooth operator and showed no sign of nervousness. I loved the way Harris combined an activity they loved as a couple with an homage to their first date together. Often proposals go in one of two directions, a totally new experience where you create a new memory in a new place, or the proposal revisits a sentimental location and the proposal marks an additional milestone in your relationship. – Ash Fox

Peter came up with the perfect way to surprise his girlfriend Tina, on a (not so ordinary) walk to a work event earning in the morning. Sometimes you gotta catch a gal off guard by surprising them on a regular day! Tina was shocked. Peter and Tina’s proposal took place on a chilly winter day right at sunrise. What a way to start the day, right?! The light was gorgeous with the sun rising just moments before Peter dropped to his knee. He created a beautiful card for Tina  which made the moment extra special No need for coffee for these two, nothing wakes you up like the endorphin rush of love! :) I’m so happy for Tina and Pete! Congrats!

Tina and Pete’s story  and my photos were featured by How He Asked. Check out their post here… http://howheasked.com/highline-proposal-in-new-york-city

Spencer’s marriage proposal to Samantha was a fairytale brought to life. He brilliantly came up with the perfect proposal ideas for his gorgeous fiancé-to-be Samantha. Samantha loves fairytales and this year Saks Fifth Avenue’s incredible window display was a fairytale theme with each window representing a different story  like Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Snow White, and Little Red Raiding Hood to name a few. I’ve seen so many displays but these were truly outstanding.  Spencer took Samantha to check out the window displays. It was exciting enough to just be in NYC seeing the amazing windows, but Spencer had a surprise up his sleeve.  They stood online and strolled together ooo-ing and ah–ing over the amazing windows. When they reached the last window it displayed the greatest fairytale of all! A large customized sign asking Samantha to marry him. As soon as she saw the window he dropped to his knee and popped the question. Spencer is a real life Prince Charming! I’m so thrilled for this sweet couple! Wishing them happily ever after!

The awesome proposal website How He Asked also did a cool feature on this proposal. You can check it out here: http://howheasked.com/saks-fifth-avenue-window-proposal

Guys and gals ask me all the time where they can propose with an amazing view of NYC, but without the crowds of tourists. There are so many great options I recommend depending on the couple, their personal style and interests, but one great idea for  an intimate proposal is to do it atop a gorgeous,  private New York City rooftop. The rooftop can be an event space, the rooftop of an office building, the balcony of a hotel suite, or even the private rooftop of a NYC resident. A rooftop is a fantastic place for a proposal because of the incredible scenic background.

I loved photographing this gorgeous proposal for Adrian and his stunning fiancé! Adrian booked the rooftop, decorated it with sentimental photographs that chronicled his relationship with his fiancé and had a violinist there playing their favorite song. He proposed with a breathtaking view of the Empire State Building in the background. This view is totally unique and special for them because it’s a private space, so the pictures they have are even more personalized.

A rooftop proposal is a great way to avoid crowds, and have a very private and unique experience. You can even set up a table in chairs and order delivery from your favorite restaurant to top off the night. :)

surprise marriage proposal tudor city

Raymond was trying to find the perfect spot for his proposal in NYC. His gorgeous girlfriend is a student here in NYC and he lives in California. He didn’t want to choose one of her obvious local haunts, but rather find a special place she may not have yet discovered in her short time here in NYC. This way the spot was all their own. He had seen my video online, where I’m standing in Tudor City talking about how I help plan and photographer proposals and thought “I like where Ash is standing, how about doing it there!” So Ray and I hashed out a plan and I shot his proposal right there in my favorite secret hideout in all of NYC. I write this knowing that I might eat my words, because next thing you know everyone may be hanging out in Tudor City! That’s NYC for you. Once the word is out about a cool spot, that little corner of the universe is up for grabs! So I’ll savor this spot for now as my secret hideout, other than sharing it with awesome couples like Ray and Alexa. They are young, gourgous, and full of laughs. This winter day was BITTER COLD, but they were troopers! Love does have a warming effect!

gapstow-bridge-proposal-central-park- Peter’s proposal was a double surprise. First he surprised her with a ring…   DSC_6578     DSC_6242 DSC_6299 DSC_6332   … and then with all of Catherine’s BEST friends!!! A double surprise proposal can be tough to pull off because the more elements you add to a proposal the more you have to be aware of having everything perfectly timed. I love photographing proposals with a double surprise, because just when you think she’s as excited as she could possibly be, her reaction is magnified ten fold when she sees how her fiancé arranged for her friends to be there too. I just love Catherine’s reaction in all the photos. Also, this proposal took place in early fall, just when the leaves were starting to change color. We’re not quite there yet, but Central Park in the cal is absolutely beautiful. I love how the ivy on the Gapstow Bridge turns red. Every season has it’s own unique character and is equally romantic. – Ash Fox, Suprise Proposal Photographer DSC_6365   DSC_6566   DSC_6603 DSC_6706 DSC_6698central park surprise proposal engagement photographer photography nyc new york city

Highline Proposal NYC Engagement Photography

Niraj and Jill live in DC, but they could have easily fooled me that they were local New Yorkers. They fit right in with the New York beat. I was struck by their matching big smiles and sleek monochromatic style. Niraj is an offbeat proposal rebel ready to avoid every proposal cliche and I love it. Niraj chose to propose to Jill on the snow covered Highline, when  no one else was outside on February 15th (the day AFTER Valentine’s Day). He gave Jill the most unique pear shaped ring which just showed how well Niraj gets Jill. The ring fit perfectly with all of her other eclectic jewely. This year when I was interviewed on CBS Radio for my best proposal tips I mentioned that you don’t have to propose on a holiday. Why not give you and your gal another holiday to celebrate for the rest of your lives? I love the Niraj chose February 15th because it heightened the surprise factor. When I met Jill I instantly saw what a great match they make. It was freezing cold and snowing so we made the most of the beauty of the Meatpacking district and then we ducked in to the Gansevoort hotel for some celebratory champagne and snaps in the the heated upstairs bar. Afterwards we headed over to the Mondrian Soho Hotel to take some post proposal engagement photos of Niraj and Jill in the gorgeous hotel lobby, bar and outdoor park – Ash

Metropolitan Museum of Art Proposal Engagement Photography Photographer NYC

James and his  girlfriend Kathryn live in Connecticut. Kathryn is currently getting her PHD in archeology, so James planned the perfect proposal in front of the Temple of Dendur inside the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Egyptian wing and of course I was there to secretly photograph it! This open space is gorgeous and full of light. This room  perfectly marries ancient and modern with the Temple of Dendur set inside the large contemporary space with it’s rectangular pool and large slanted windows. My eyes always fall right into the reflection of  the shadowy figures in the pool. I’m a sucker for reflected images of couples. The Metropilotian Museum of Art was a perfect location choice for James, because it put Kathryn right in her element. James and Kathryn made an elegant couple strolling around the museum.  I watched as Kathryn showed James around the gallery pointing and explaining different pieces. She reminded me of myself wandering around the MOMA, challenging myself to guess the names of the artists without looking at the wall plaques. I would most definitely fail at this little game here inside the Met. Before entering the Temple of Dendur, James dropped to his knee. Kathryn’s reaction was awesome. How lovely is it to propose in a museum! I generally like to use museum’s as backups plans in case of rain, but if the girl you’re proposing to has an affinity for history and/or art it makes for the perfect spot. – Ash Fox

DSC_4187Jeff and Kelly live in Toronto. When they visit NYC they always like to visit Bryant Park, their favorite romantic spot that stretches between 40th and 42nd st right behind the New York Public Library. Jeff knew that he and Kelly would always come back to this park as it’s a place where they’ve shared many romantic strolls and memories, so he planned to seal this place as their place forever. Jeff purchased a chair with a plaque dedicated to Kelly with the special words “Will you Marry Me”. When Jeff told me his plan over the phone I welled up with emotion. How insanely romantic?!?

They elegantly strolled around the park before Jeff told her he’d be right back. Kelly sat for a few moments wondering where Jeff had gone, and then he came back carrying a chair. She looked confused. Why on earth was Jeff carrying a chair when there were plenty of chairs to sit in all around them? He placed it on the concrete and asked Kelly to read the plaque. She bent down to read it and when she looked back at Jeff he was on his knee proposing to her!

Proposal in Riverside Park 92st St Garden

 

Stephen knew his girlfriend Alexandra’s favorite movie of all time is “You’ve Got Mail”, the famous 90s movie with Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks. So, Stephen planned a romantic weekend in NYC around the theme of the movie taking Alexandra to many of the famous locations featured in the movie. The final destination to complete the movie scavenger hunt would be Riverside Park where Stephen planned to propose. I love this proposal because Stephen really knows Alexandra and personalized the proposal around something that means a lot to her, a place that makes her heart sing. Whoever proposes to me should watch the film “Great Expectations” with Gweynth Paltrow and Ethan Hawk if they want to get ideas ;).

Newly engaged couple kissing; beautiful outdoors marriage proposal photography by ASH FOX Photography and Video This proposal ranks as one of the most original and romantic proposals I’ve shot! Chris knew that his girlfriend loved castles and fairytales and created a real life fairytale for Nicole. He just blew her away with this epic proposal, complete with a violinist playing their song Elvis’s “Can’t Help Falling in Love” softly in the background.  I had an amazing time shooting this proposal for them. Here’s Chris’s testimonial : “I hired Ash to capture a very special moment – my proposal to my girlfriend (she said yes!). Ash was a total pro and extremely easy to work with – she helped me plan out the best way to get her involved unbeknownst to my girlfriend, and captured every moment of the proposal. Our friends and family are obsessed with the photos – thanks for everything”! – Chris M marriage proposal photography, perfect proposal, Hire/Book a NYC Photographer, Hire/Book a NY Photographer, Proposal Photographer, Marriage Proposal Photographer, Marriage Proposal, Hire a NYC Photographer, Hire/Book a NYC Photographer, NYC Proposal Photographer, Manhattan Proposal Photographer, Brooklyn Proposal Photographer, Hire a Photographer, Hire a Proposal Photographer, Wedding Engagement Photographer, Central Park Proposal, Central Park Boathouse Proposal, Central Park Proposal Photographer, Rockefeller Center Skating Rink Proposal Photographer, Rockefeller Center Skating Rink Proposal Photography, Proposing to girlfriend NYC, Proposing to girlfriend Brooklyn, Proposing to girlfriend Manhattan, Propose to girlfriend NYC, Propose to girlfriend New York City, Propose to girlfriend Manhattan, Propose to girlfriend Brooklyn, Proposal Central Park, Photograph engagement, Photographer for Engagement, Photographer for Proposal NYC, Photographer for Proposal NY, Photographer for Proposal New York City, Photographer for Engagement Manhattan, Photographer for Engagement Brooklynpost proposal kiss in front of castle in new jerseyembracing in the sunlight of a cstle proposalcastle proposal kneeling ring photography

Girl about to be proposed to as she walks with her boyfriend along the DUMBO waterfront

I love photographing couples in front of the incredible NYC skyline. When JD got in touch with me to photograph his proposal to his girlfriend Anna we combined forces and brainstormed an awesome proposal along the waterside in DUMBO including a ferry ride, in which I discreetly photographed them (sneaky sneaky)! I always love when guys add special personal touches to their proposal. JD created a beautiful photo book of his and Anna’s journey as a couple together. He also picked out such a beautiful and unique canary yellow ring! I’m a big fan of yellow if you couldn’t tell. Anna was completely shocked and so thrilled! This summertime proposal was so romantic, I was “kvelling” (as the say in Yiddish–to be so overwhelmed with emotion). She of course said yes!
