Are you planning on proposing during the holiday season? In this video, I talk about the top three places you can pop the question!
The Christmas Tree at Rockefeller Center Skating Rink – On the rink, you’ll get a open, unobstructed view of the tree with you and your partner in front of it.
The Palace Hotel – This hotel decorates a gorgeous Christmas tree every year during the holidays – it’s also been featured on shows like Gossip Girl.
A private rooftop – When it’s chilly out, you’ll have a private, intimate space for you decorated the way you want! You’ll also have an indoor space to get warm in between shots.

I absolutely loved helping Brandon plan the big day for him and his girlfriend Coll! This was a special proposal right in the heart of Central Park in the fall.
In Coll’s words:⠀ “What a surprise the occasion was when the day started with a photo op for me, my boyfriend Brandon and our dog – and ended in a proposal.⠀
On top of it all, there was a guitar player playing our song and an amazing photographer (that’s me!) capturing the most special moment of our lives.”
As a photographer, I always feel so grateful that I’ve been chosen to capture some really important and special moments in my clients’ lives. Looking at these photos really make me smile!

In honor of National Coffee Day I wanted to feature Stephen’s cafe proposal!?⠀ ⠀ Stephen wanted to propose in a space that was special yet understated for him and his future fiancée so that it would flow as a natural part of his weekend routine.⠀ ⠀ For most New Yorkers, your local coffee shop is essentially an extension of your home. We live in relatively small homes compared to the rest of the country, so your cafe often becomes your living room, office, reading space and meeting place. I know mine is!⠀ ⠀ While it’s extremely special to propose on vacation, there’s something also very intimate to propose to your significant other in a familiar place where you’ve made a lot of memories together. Stephen chose to propose in their favorite local cafe!

I love Jana and Bernard’s story. It reads like a romantic comedy and culminates in the most perfect proposal inside St. Patricks Cathedral, one of the most beautiful churches in the world. Planning a great proposal is all about paying attention to details and remembering little hints your partner gives you about what they would like as well as overt ones. Jana told Bernard in passing that she loved St. Patricks and he didn’t forget!
In Jana’s words
“We met five years ago, I was coming out of yoga, and he was checking into a hotel for work where the studio was. I’m not sure what it was, but that spark was there, he made me laugh, and he was quite dashing. I remember telling him “we would never work” as he lived in Houston and me in Dallas. His comment to that “it’s just a bag of peanuts away,” i.e., Southwest Airlines. He would also say “I was a hard nut to crack.” Working his magic he slowly crept into my heart. On one of the many phone conversations throughout our courtship, I mentioned how I loved New York and had visited most of the cathedrals; specifically, St. Patricks. The one thing about my Ash is he listens. We made plans to be in New York for the tree lighting at Rockefeller Center. He said, “let’s stop at St. Patricks and light a candle.” Upon entering the church, he stopped me, and on one knee he proposed. Later, I asked “why St. Patricks” and he said “I know what this church means to you and nobody gets engaged in a church, always married. Being the man that he is, he changed the rules.
The photographs speak for themselves, we’ve had so many compliments, we used the photos that year for our Christmas photo, our wedding announcement and have framed many of them. Christmas in New York is beautiful, getting engaged there was over the top. Ash Fox’s timing is impeccable, her editing stunning, and such a joy to work with, can we come back?”
I get calls and emails all the time that begin with “Where do I even start”. A lot of times it can be overwhelming coming up with an idea for your proposal. You may be overloaded with ideas and not know which one to choose or you may be have no clue where to begin. One great place to start is thinking about activities and interests you share with your partner. For example, Michael and his girlfriend, Emily met competing in Model United Nations together in college. Model UN was both their meeting place and an activity they both were passionate about so Michael took Emily for a tour of the United Nations. Just as they finished the tour, he grabbed Emily’s hand, completely catching her off guard and dropped to his knee in front of the flags and the iconic sparkling silver United Nations building. Emily was shocked and thrilled by Michael’s sentimentality because the UN met a lot to them. I sneakily photographed the entire moment from the street as if I was a tourist passing by. Afterwards I brought them over to Tudor City where we took some post engagement pictures with views of the Chrysler building and others featuring Emily’s pear cut diamond ring set in rose gold is also a dream! Well done Michael!
