I absolutely loved shooting Andrew’s proposal in the West Village on a cool crisp November morning. He and his stunning fiancé live in the West Village so he surprised her before Sunday brunch after grabbing coffee and strolling through one of their favorite local parks in the West Village. With their perfectly coordinated outfits, good looks, and the ambiance of the fall foliage I felt like I was shooting Ralph Lauren’s Fall fashion campaign! NYC ladies are so fashionable that even just caught off guard on a regular Sunday morning they look picture perfect!
When New York City locals propose a lot of times we talk about integrating the proposal into a regular day so that she doesn’t see it coming. NYC ladies have seen it all and since so many tourists propose in most of the classic postcard New York locations, most guys and gals like to choose more sentimental spots from their daily lives with their partners such as their favorite restaurants or the park where they sip their Sunday morning coffee :) I have a lot of secret spots up my sleeve from 10 years living in NYC and I’m learning new ones everyday. I hadn’t been to this little park before Andrew told me about it. People ask me all the time where’s the best place to propose or what’s my favorite kind of proposal to shoot? In my opinion a laid back stroll with the person you love the most is classic romance at it’s finest. Keeping it simple (my number one proposal tip !) is often times more intimate and cuts down on stress levels for the person proposing.

Jeff 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!
