One of our favorite types of events to photograph in NYC are surprise proposals. For as many inquiries as we receive to photograph NYC proposals, it never gets old! We love the anticipation involved in looking forward to such a momentous occasion. We’d be lying if we said we didn’t feel a bit of an adrenaline rush leading up to that moment, too! But most importantly, proposals have a way of taking us back to our own beginning as a couple, and of reminding us of the early days. That’s a big reason why we love when you choose us to be your proposal photographer. We know that when our couples look back at their proposal images, they will be reminded of the early days, too. They’ll be reminded of all the joy they felt when she said yes and they’ll see time and time again that it all started with everlasting love.

Today we’re sharing a surprise proposal at the one and only Metropolitan Museum of Art. It took place last March, on our sweet couple’s 5th dating anniversary inside the Temple of Dendur. It was a perfect location for a classic NYC proposal because it was picturesque as much as it was unique and exciting. And spacious! Having lots of space to walk around and get different angles is always so important when capturing a proposal! We captured our couple from the moment they entered the temple until that special moment when he got down on one knee and she said yes. It was unforgettable in every way as these two were lucky enough to be surrounded by masterpieces, works of art, and plenty of onlookers, too! We’re honored to share this perfect NYC surprise proposal with you all today. Enjoy this recap and, if you’re looking for a Proposal Photographer in NYC, contact us so we can start planning!
