Urban Engagement Photos in Upper East Side

Whenever people ask me where to take urban engagement photos, I always suggest the Upper East Side! Especially if that’s where you live it makes for the perfect engagement session location in NYC. It’s quintessential New York City and has so much romance and history on every block.  

This couple met on move-in day when they both started college at Penn State. So, you could say they’ve been living together since day one. After eight years together, he got their pup a new collar with a special engraving – “Will you marry me?” If you’re thinking of including your fur baby in your proposal do it! It is always a good idea and can definitely lead to a higher chance of them saying “YES!”  

Since their pup was a big part of their proposal, it was only fitting that we had their pup at their NYC Upper East Side engagement session. They are such a sweet couple that capturing their love on camera was so easy. We finished their session on brownstone steps with big slices of pizza and kisses.

Urban Engagement Photos in NYC

What I love about being an NYC wedding photographer is that in each area of the city there is always a photo opportunity. If urban engagement photos are your style you’re in luck because the abundance of skyscrapers in New York does not disappoint! Even though people think New York is a concrete jungle there are little parks and lush greenery that you can find in every neighborhood. So just because you opt for city engagement photos doesn’t mean we can’t get some greenery in some shots as well. Getting married in NYC or maybe New York is a special place for you and your partner? I’d love to take your engagement pictures. Head to my inquiry page to secure a date for your engagement session!
