the dwyer family – central park

Back in 2009 I photographed the proposal of Scott and Angelina on the observation deck of Top of the Rock.  I was thrilled to receive an email from Scott asking me to photograph them again but now as a family of 3!  They took a trip from sunny California to NYC with their 7 month old daughter, Delaney, this past June.  We met in Central Park at a playground and started our shoot on the swing set.  Delaney was absolutely precious and it was great to see Scott and Angelina again!  Here are a few of my favorite shots from the day!






ryan + erin – surprise proposal in Central Park

Everyone knows how much I love shooting proposals.  Well I love it even more when the couple is as cool as Ryan and Erin.  They flew in all the way from Canada and Ryan popped the question on a gorgeous Monday morning in September.  Erin was SOOOO excited and surprised!  She’s a fellow photographer so, needless to say, she was thrilled that Ryan was thoughtful enough to hire me!

I am so honored to be a part of this important day.  I had a really amazing time and I wish you both all the very best.  You’re awesome.  Thank you for making my first proposal post baby easy and so fun!

Here are some of my favorite shots from the day.  And, as always, please CLICK HERE to see their slideshow!  It’s the best way to watch their story unfold!


taylor + amanda – surprise proposal in central park, nyc

This past December Taylor flew his girlfriend Amanda from the City of Angels to the Big Apple to pop the question in Central Park!  Bow Bridge was the proposal spot and just to make it even more cool, Taylor also hired a musician to casually play as they got there and specifically “I’m Yours” by Jason Mraz once he went down on one knee.   Well, little did we know that just a mere minute before Taylor and Amanda showed up, ANOTHER couple proposed!  It was crazy!  The musician starts playing “I’m Yours” and I’m trying to signal him that it’s the wrong couple but Taylor and Amanda were walking towards the bridge so I had to start photographing.  In the end, it worked out perfectly and Amanda was so surprised!  The other couple that had just gotten engaged congratulated them (I can’t help but think that the guy felt one-upped by Taylor what with a musician AND a photographer…haha! Score another one for Taylor!).

Taylor and Amanda, you are such a wonderful couple.  Your laughter was contagious and love for each other SO obvious.  Thank you for letting me in on this monumental day in your lives.
