Bow Bridge Proposal in Central Park – Josh Wong Photography
Ramy Proposes to Jessica on Bow Bridge in Central Park.
Friday March 18, 2011
There is just something magical about this place. The infamous Bow Bridge to be exact. Marriage proposals seem to happen there practically everyday and I am lucky enough to be one of the few to capture these unforgettable moments. It is a truly great spot. The lighting is generally very good and the view is spectacular. Ramy contacted me several days before to go over his game plan for his proposal to his girlfriend Jessica. “Is this something you can do for me?” he asked. “Of course! What’s the plan?” Ramy’s plan included a little visit to Magnolia Bakery, a favorite spot for the couple and then a stroll into Central Park. Have a seat at the Bethesda Fountain where I was waiting for them from a distance. I took a few shots here (2 images below) and then proceeded to Bow Bridge, the proposal location.
When I got to the bridge, around 3pm, it was crowded as usual but the light was falling into my ideal situation. I signaled Ramy, via text, that I was ready for him to make his way here. The funny thing, and this almost always happens, is the gathering of people that watch the proposal. They have no idea what’s going on but when they are lucky enough to witness it happening, their reactions are unbeatable.
So…. finally after the proposal, I emerged from my hidden location and Ramy informed Jessica that I had been there the whole time capturing their beautiful moment. I had a great time Jessica and Ramy! Congratulations to you both and I can’t wait till your wedding. Below are a few of my favorites.
