Central Park spring wedding at the Ladies Pavilion in New York City


Lucile and Jean-Max, a young French couple from Paris, chose New York City for the location for their destination wedding.

The couple met in France through a mutual friend who introduced to each other because they were both big fans of Pokemon Go!  The couple arrived to New York City with four of their closest friends and on a lovely spring day they got married in the Ladies pavilion in Central Park.  We stopped by some of the iconic landmarks in Central Park for some newlyweds portraits and wedding party photos.  The couple also hired the services of Peter from Film Cars who drives a vintage 1964 yellow taxi to drive around town.  This detour is so much fun and such a unique experience!

We dropped the newlyweds off at the wedding dinner at One Vanderbilt.  Wishing Lucile and Jean-Max a wonderful marriage!

The fantastic team of professionals who helped the couple bring their wedding day visions to life:

Washington Square Park surprise marriage proposal in New York City

Conor and Alex took a walk through Washington Square Park on a brisk October afternoon. They were on their way to the restaurant for a romantic dinner. They sat down for a minute at the fountain just as the sun was setting. After that Conor surprised his girlfriend, Alex, with a stunning diamond engagement ring. Alex happily said Yes! After the surprise marriage proposal we took some portraits of the newly engaged couple near Washington Square Park.

Congratulations and best wishes to Alex and Conor!

Montauk lighthouse surprise proposal – Montauk, New York proposal photography

Mayoor contacted me in March with his proposal plans to Sajni at the romantic Montauk Lighthouse.

Mayoor planned a whole weekend in the Hamptons with wonderful meals, sightseeing and the surprise marriage proposal at the lighthouse.

Montauk Point Lighthouse is the first and oldest lighthouse in New York state and has beautiful views of the ocean.

When Mayoor and Sajni arrived at the park they started to walk around the big rocks towards the beach.  They took a little break, took some photos and chatted a little bit.

Then Mayoor stood up and kneeled down and popped the question to his high school sweetheart.  Sajni was very surprised and very happy.  Of course she said Yes!  She was amazed how well Mayoor planned it all out and kept it a secret.  It was a very romantic and unique proposal.  It was their first time visiting the Montauk Lighthouse and now it will forever hold very special memories for them.

Congratulations to Sajni and Mayoor!

Winter wonderland romance

Rob proposed to Karyn in a very romantic setting while they were traveling in Ireland during springtime.  We tried to find an equally beautiful setting in New York City for their engagement portraits.  Mother Nature was on our side when we got the first lovely snow of the season and transformed Central Park into a romantic winter wonderland for the engagement session.

We visited some of the landmarks of the park such as the Belvedere Castle, the Bow Bridge and the Bethesda Fountain for romantic backdrops.  Karyn and Rob were such troopers during the session even though we were all soaked by the end.  Had some fun throwing some snow balls, we spotted some wild life and some cute snowmen.

Congratulations to Karyn and Rob!!
