T’was the Night for a Surprise Marriage Proposal at Rockefeller Center’s Ice Rink
December 22, 2010
Lauren and James Engaged
Every year around Christmas time, Lauren and James like to come to New York City and take in the sights for the holidays. They enjoy visiting the Rockefeller Ice Rink, Radio City, FAO Schwartz, and they even ride in the Central Park horse carriages. This year, James had a little surprise in store for Lauren. Little did she know that James had contacted me earlier wanting to set up a shoot to document his marriage proposal to her at the Rockefeller Center Ice Rink. This time of year, there are huge crowds that want to go ice skating at the center but James had arranged to have everyone cleared off the ice rink when the clock struck 6:00pm. When the magic hour arrived, they had the entire rink all to themselves so he could propose to Lauren. For me, photographing marriage proposals are almost as special as the first look, or the first dance at a wedding. They elicit such great emotions and the surprise on the fiance’s face is priceless. Congratulations to Lauren and James on your engagement!
Below are some of my favorites of the evening. Enjoy!
