NYC Engagement Photographer


As a New York City wedding photographer, I often am hired first for the couple’s engagement. Perhaps there’s a surprise proposal in the works, or you’re having a bash to celebrate, or you’re simply ready to finally get those “Save the Date” cards out.  NYC offers iconic locations for any photo shoot, but this city is incredibly romantic and well-suited for proposals and engagements.

I’ve photographed engagements and proposals all over this town, from Central Park to Prospect Park, from DUMBO to Manhattan rooftops, from Rockefeller Center to the GWB. If you want a traditional formal engagement portrait, then my Chelsea studio is great.  Each and every thing about your proposal and engagement is a very personal choice that marks a deep but fresh commitment, and on every single shoot, I remember when and how I asked my wife to marry me. 

Planning your engagement shoot

As I mentioned above, there are many different options for engagement shoots — on location, in my studio, indoors, outdoors, with your BFFs or just an intimate twosome (well, I’ll be there, too). I’ve got tons of experience, so I’m happy to share ideas. If you already know what you want to do, I’m all ears and at the ready.  In terms of rates, we’ll need to pin down the plan first, but generally speaking, an engagement session runs $595 and up.  If you also want to hire me as your wedding photographer, and I hope you do, then make sure you check out the packages we offer because your engagement shoot might be covered. 

Engagement and Wedding Resources

After a decade and a half in NYC as a wedding photographer, I’ve built up quite the arsenal of superb resources. In other words, I got a guy. Whether you’re shopping for the perfect engagement ring for your surprise proposal, beginning to tour wedding venues, jumping into designing and selecting your Save The Date cards or wedding invitations — I’ve got recommendations of vendors whose work I know well and whom I trust implicitly.  Here are a few for starters…
