When it comes to choosing the perfect place for your engagement photography session, you would be hard-pressed to find a more exciting and romantic setting than New York City.
The historic epicenter of American culture, entertainment, and tourism, NYC contains countless scenic shooting spots that are sure to take your breath away. But no matter where you decide to have your engagement photography session, on thing is certain - the “city that never sleeps” will provide you and your fiancée with an unforgettable experience to be surpassed only by the big day, itself.
After having your photographer capture the most personal of moments among the pinkish trees of Cherry Hill or by the elegant Bethesda fountain (in the middle of the park at 72nd St.), move your engagement photography session to the famous Boathouse Restaurant, located at the park’s Northeastern tip. You and your fiancée can enjoy a beautiful view of the Lake from the restaurant’s English garden or float around in a gondola of your own. Let yourself bask in the tranquility of this enchanted setting with your significant other and you might just forget that you are having a photo shoot at all.
One of the city’s most famous landmarks and traditional home of NYC’s mayors, the mansion encompasses the sprawling Carl Schurtz Park. The park, which contains what were once the mansion’s private gardens, is the perfect place to take a leisurely promenade - particularly, in the later summer months. Whether you choose the park’s vibrant floral treasures or its stunning panoramic views of the waterfront as the setting for your engagement photography session, the memories you make at this historic site will not be soon forgotten.
Atop the world-renowned Metropolitan Museum of Art sits a spectacle that is bound to astound star-crossed lovers as much as art aficionados. A singular setting for an outdoor sculpture display, the B. Gerald Cantor Roof Garden provides a fantastic view of Central Park – the picture perfect backdrop for your engagement photography session. Though the museum, itself, is a must for any NYC tourist, make sure to schedule appropriately, as the garden is only open from May to late fall.
It may take more than a few moments to fully take in the majestic Roman-style exterior of this New York City jewel. But upon entering the station, allow yourself to be embraced by the warm and soothing colors of the interior. As you prepare to embark on a new and exciting journey with your loved one, choose this beautiful and symbolic landmark for your engagement photography session.
For the couple that loves baseball almost as much as one another, Yankee Stadium offers much more than just peanuts and cracker jacks. Take your photographer to the historic Monument Park and where you can take photos alongside New York City legends like Babe Ruth and Mickey Mantle. From there, your photographer can capture the backdrop of the entire stadium as you and your fiancée strike a pose!
It doesn’t have to be New Year’s Eve for you to enjoy the bright lights and soaring heights of Times Square. As you lose yourselves in the city’s spectacular, dazzling center, your photographer will capture all the glittering details of one of the most romantic backdrops in New York City. Afterward, be sure to catch a classic Broadway show with your fiancée (he wants to, even if he doesn’t admit it).
Truly an architectural marvel, the grandiose St. Patrick’s Cathedral and its towering spires will provide a stunning backdrop to your engagement photography session. Venture inside this Gothic wonder and pose in front of the looming columns or even next to the beautifully lit altar. This hauntingly romantic setting, located across from the Rockefeller Center, will have you and your fiancée hearing wedding bells, perhaps sooner than you think!
Though you may at first find it difficult to ignore the scores of buzzing cars, the view of New York City from the Brooklyn Bridge will, doubtless, astound you and your fiancée. As you gaze across the New York Harbor, you will have an amazing view of Governor’s Island and of Lady Liberty, herself. One look at this majestic background and you will wonder why you even considered going anywhere else for your engagement photography session.
