JENNIFER + ALEX
Surprise Proposal in DUMBO

Okay spoiler alert, if you couldn’t tell by the main photo, she said “YES!!” Jennifer and Alex came up to NYC for the New Year and we were lucky enough to tag along to DUMBO for some impromptu couples photos, or so we THOUGHT! Jennifer is Emilio’s cousin and her and Alex had been considering taking some photos around DUMBO for the hell of it. It’s NYC how can you not leave without taking at least a few epic portraits. We were both stoked to see them and show them around the area – but Alex had an even better idea!
By surprise proposal in DUMBO, we really mean it.
We had absolutely no idea that Alex planned to get down on one knee and propose. His plan involved a retro View Master that included photos of their travels. The final slide popping the question “Will You Marry Me?” We both caught on once she was distracted by the View Master and he pulled out the ring box. By the time she realized what the last slide said, he was happily waiting to ask that question. If you’re planning your own NYC proposal, reach out and we can help! Alex definitely set the bar pretty high with his customized View Master. Check the link at the bottom of the blog and you can see where you can order your own.

We keep it super discreet and walk you through the whole process so you don’t have to worry about the surprise being ruined. Definitely reach out to an experienced NYC Proposal Photographer because there are so many moving pieces with proposals.
