I am a Long Island based wedding, engagement and proposal photographer.
The images in this engagement session gallery are from various areas in New York State, such as: Shelter Island, The Hamptons, Montauk, The North Fork, Ocean Beach, Suffolk County, Nassau County, Brooklyn, Queens and even Texas.
Engagement and proposal sessions are shot outdoors on location - typically 2 hours before sunset.
Nature, architecture, beaches, urban or a historical environment become the backdrop to your session.
I have plenty of favorite places to recommend and welcome shooting in a location that is personal and special to you as a couple as well.
The sessions are about you and your connection to one another. Keeping it true to your personality and relationship.
The most common reasons as to why you should have an engagement session are:
These reasons are all valid and true.
Once you are married it will go even faster!
And get even busier!
Lockdown natural/gorgeous images of yourselves now - while you are still this age - you won't regret it.
And because my portraits are natural and flattering, they will never become outdated or embarrassing. You will be proud to frame, share and print the images.
I also provide my couples with wardrobe advice/help and other various pointers to optimize your photos.
You will enjoy having a collection of gorgeous professional portraits that are not all in your wedding attire.
I recommend selecting a season that is different from your wedding date, this will contrast the colors and mood from your wedding day and provide you with a fresh collection of images to cherish and frame throughout your home.
And on a side note...if you should have children...your kids are going to love the photos of their parents when they were young.
I would love to be considered to photograph this exciting time in your lives. Please contact me via my contact page or give me a call at 631-747-5645 for more information. Let's create art and capture memories together - it will be fun!
If you would like to have your surprise marriage proposal photographed on Long Island.
I would love to capture this special moment for you.
I have a lot of experience photographing surprise marriage proposals - documenting all of the reactions and expressions that candidly occur.
In addition to the photography, I will also help you plan your proposal for optimal results.
You will know exactly where to kneel and I will guide you through the entire process.
It is always best to pick a location that has sentimental meaning to you or a place would be natural for you to go visit.
I can suggest location ideas for you as well.
My favorite Long Island locations tend to be scenic and as a nature lover myself I love capturing your proposal unfold against picturesque backdrops such as:
-Coopers Beach in Southampton
-Vineyards on the North and South Forks are a great place -however, you must inquire with ownership for permission and fees may be required.
And as with any location - Always inquire with the owner or park for current permit rules and possible site fees.

And after your sweetheart says, 'Yes!" we will take some gorgeous engagement portraits.
I love photographing surprise proposals and I would love to preserve this memory for you.
