6 Engagement Photo Locations in New York

Updated: Sep 22, 2023

Planning your New York engagement session is going to be a blast. Congrats to you and your love. As wedding professionals, L Prestigious Events believes in providing information key to all aspects of your engagement experience. In this blog, you will find six of our favorite engagement locations. Think of particular locations where you met, had a first date, had a first kiss, etc. Next, locate a professional photographer who matches your style and is creative, fun, and a pleasure to work with.

The team and I recommend reading the reviews from a hired professional. Client reflections are most times on target and can help guide your selection. Note that an engagement session can double as a get-to-know-the-photographer. Some couples hire their engagement photographer to capture the wedding day. Consider adding props once you determine your photography style, location, and attire.

Don't forget to:

-Take some time for the excitement and reality to soak in.

-Share the news with your family FIRST.

-Share with your friends and followers on Social Media.

-Enjoy your new status, fiance'; you're about to be a whole #wife or #husband.

-Remember to have fun when taking photos indoors, outside, day or evening.

-Be your natural self by relaxing and taking it all in.
