This Central Park Proposal was a dream. Amanda’s sister had reached out to me through Instagram to see if I was available to photograph this proposal and I was. Julio and I hopped on a quick phone call and everything was set. He already knew where in Central Park he wanted to do it at – right in front of the Women’s Rights Pioneer Statue. He knew Amanda really cared about women’s rights so he thought it would be perfect. And it was!

As I’m sure you know, New York City in the Fall is unlike any other place. On top of that, Central Park in the Fall is crazy beautiful. With the leaves changing and the weather being absolutely perfect (those 2 weeks out of the year) there really isn’t a better time or place to pop that special question!

There are two different types of proposals. The one where it’s just the two of you, and then there are the ones where your family is hiding in the bushes secretly watching the whole thing go down. Personally, I love when family is there, because then we can snag a few updated family pics for you guys. It’s basically like 2 photoshoots in 1!

Once the question was asked and answered Amanda, Julio, and I walked around to take a couple photos. Whenever I photograph a proposal I always set aside time after for us to do a mini-photoshoot afterwards. Some couples use these photos for their wedding website and/or invitations!
