When Michael reached out to us about having his proposal to Minjee photographed, he already had Central Park in mind. As one of our popular locations for proposals, we couldn’t agree more with his decision! He and his now fiancee Minjee walked along Bow Bridge before they stopped at this spot to take what she thought would just be regular tourist-y selfies. When he finally got down on one knee to pop the question, we captured this gorgeous shot with the Manhattan skyline behind them on one side and the winter trees in Central Park on the other.
Afterward, with smiles on all of our faces, we took portraits of them as a newly engaged couple around the other beautiful locations within the park like the Bethesda Terrace and Fountain.
On this NYC trip of theirs, all Sandy knew they were going to get up to in DUMBO was a fun, couple’s portrait session with her beau Chaz. What she didn’t expect was for him to get one knee down on the ground, the Brooklyn Bridge behind them, and propose to her!
The joy in their faces was so palpable, we just had to capture as much as we could of their infectious smiles!
For us at IHNY, the moment that we truly feel that Christmas is fast approaching is when we get to capture a couple’s engagement in The Rink at Rockefeller Center. The giant, colorful, and brightly lit Christmas tree provides a perfectly festive backdrop to every romantic proposal that takes place there.
Xavier and Delphine just so happened to be our first Ice Skating Proposal couple for Winter 2018! We were extremely excited to get to photograph, not only the moment where he gets down on one knee, but also their post-proposal portraits in front of the Prometheus Statue, where they also enjoyed a couple of glasses of champagne to celebrate!
This unsurprisingly successful and beautiful proposal was planned by The Heart Bandits team.
Tracy and Jon’s surprise proposal was a fairy tale come to life! Having known Tracy for almost a decade, Jon decided to pop the question on a romance-filled Saturday. Following a helicopter tour over Manhattan, he took her to a rooftop overlooking the city. On a terrace filled with rose petals, Jon got down on one knee and asked Tracy to marry him; her “yes” was so beautiful and moving! A violinist was also there to add to the mood, playing songs like “Time of My Life” and “I Swear.” After the proposal, the lovely couple took some stunning engagement photos and shared a private dinner together. This event was magical from start to finish!
Zach and Katie came up all the way from Texas to the Big Apple for a great weekend vacation. However, Zach had something bigger in store for her! He brought her to Central Park to enjoy the lush, timeless gardens before leading her to Gapstow Bridge, where he finally popped the question. The lovely couple was all smiles in the stunning photos they took after; we’re thrilled to have been able to capture such a fantastic moment in their journey together!
All Cheyene knew was that she and Cole would be taking some couple photos . What she didn’t know was that he had planned much more than that! With the Tower Bridge as his background, Cole popped the question; while Cheyene was shocked at first, she happily said yes. We caught the exact moment they got engaged and the gorgeous couple pictures that they took around London after the beautiful proposal!
New York City’s trendy atmosphere and architecture are pretty hard to beat. Except for when you’re Deja, in which case, you’re always the trendiest, anywhere, anytime. We met up with her on a Saturday afternoon for some solo portraits, and she wowed us with some stylish snaps. Tribeca was the perfect backdrop for this fashion-forward influencer; check out some of her pictures below!
What makes a drive up from Brooklyn to Times Square totally worth it? A sweet sixteen and a great movie-turned-musical, of course! Gianna, along with her friends and her family, traveled to Manhattan to celebrate a milestone in her life. She took some stunning solo portraits right in the heart of Theater District, looking bright and beautiful for her special day! Then, everyone gathered in front of the August Wilson theater for some group photos with the birthday girl. Check out how in-theme they were for the day! Dare we say their pictures are so fetch?
Aisha and Byron took two hot spots in New York City by storm! The beautiful couple took their first shots amid the lively streets of Bushwick, their bright smiles standing out even against all the vibrant graffiti. Then, they made their way over to Flatiron for even more couple photos; their shots really matched the high-end, dynamic atmosphere of their next location! From fun, to romantic, to classic, to even a little quirky (check out the signs they had in their other pictures!), this shoot really captured the heat and soul of New York.
Marlon proposed to Julie on the lush green grass in DUMBO on this summer night, a bouquet of flowers at the ready. The Heart Bandits team set up a little area for their proposal with some candles and a violinist to set the mood for one of the most important nights of their lives together.
