I love photographing surprise marriage proposals!
Mike contacted me a couple months ago from Canada when he decided to plan a surprise New York City trip for his girlfriend, Sarah, and pop the question while visiting the Big Apple. Mike had it perfectly planned out and was looking for a photographer to capture the moment when he proposes to her.
Mike chose the beautiful and very busy spot, the Top of the Rock at Rockefeller Center. It was the perfect location as I could easily blend in with the tourist crowd and stayed unnoticed. After several e-mails leading up to the holiday weekend, on the day of the proposal, Mike texted me what they are wearing and what time they are getting to the Top of the Rock.
I easily spotted them when they arrived; they took their time looking around, taking some snapshots of one another. Then a few minutes later Mike got down on one knee and proposed! Of course Sarah said Yes! and dozens of tourist cheered loudly who witnessed the proposal.
After the initial shock and surprise we walked around Manhattan to photograph the newly engaged couple.
Congratulations and best wishes to Sarah and Mike!!

Plan It Atlanta - New York is a wonderful backdrop for a proposal must have been fun going into spy mode while still having to be able to take good shots.

What to do in New York - Awesome pics… As the previous commenter said, it must have been fun (and tough) to go after the couple!
New York City provides ample places for a romantic proposals, and provides some fantastic venues for the follow up (read: weddings) as well – Central Park, NY Public Library, and more!
