Lincoln Center is one of my favorite spots to walk around, to photograph, and to photograph marriage proposals. Whether you come to Lincoln Center to see jazz, The Metropolitan Opera, the City Ballet or a concert at the Beacon Theater nearby, there’s something for everyone.
When Aaron approached me about photographing his Valentines Day proposal he asked for suggestions on where to propose. He thought about proposing in a restaurant, but due to logistics of hiding a photographer in a restaurant and it being valentines day (no restaurant would allow this) I suggested doing it elsewhere. Grand Central is beautiful, but there a lot of people. It would not be intimidated. Knowing Aaron lived on the Upper West Side I suggested Lincoln Center, right in front of the fountain.
Aaron and I went back and fourth planning this special moment. He ordered flowers and drew out how he wanted them laid out. We talked to security to guarantee we could lay out the flowers around the fountain and to ensure we’d have the space unobstructed.
The day came and the weather was perfect. We texted back and fourth waiting for the time to arrive.
At 6:30 they arrived. He asked, she said “Yes!”.
