New York City is crowded. Perhaps you’ve seen a picture of a clean, empty Brooklyn Bridge – unfortunately, this is not what it looks like at all hours of the day. The best time of day is when there are not too many people around, crowding your pictures. This is even more important than perfect lighting, since a great photographer can get a beautiful photo in any lighting scenario. We can always shift the lighting, but it is much harder to crop out a series of selfie sticks!
What is the best time of day to propose in NYC
We will provide you with an insider’s list of the best (non-touristy) romantic places where you can go after your proposal for brunch, dinner, cocktails, or even just to relax and enjoy the city. Check out this post for some ideas.
Where can we go after the proposal
Absolutely! No matter where in the world you are, you can book a consult with me for proposal ideas, strategy and overall planning to ensure your day goes perfectly.
I’m not proposing in NYC, but I need help, can you help me
Where is the best place in NYC to propose
I get asked this question nearly every day! Fortunately, we have never had anyone decline a proposal. The answer has always been yes. A good rule of thumb is to know the answer will be “yes” before you propose.
Does anyone ever say “no”
Once you are ready to lock in the service, we will set up a call for a planning session to get started brainstorming ideas. During our session, we will show you pictures and links to locations, we will strategize and scheme up the perfect proposal concept for you and your loved one. Everything will be set up for you, so that all you will have to do is show up and propose! Contact me to get started!
I have no idea how I should propose. Where do I start
Rooftop sessions are all 1hr. All public sessions are 30min with an extension option. The amount of time in your package is outlined on each package.
How much time do we have for the proposal and photos in the different packages
Absolutely! We've curated a diverse selection of stunning rooftop venues for your perfect proposal. You can click here to browse through our gallery to see all the options available. Each venue offers its own unique charm and breathtaking views to ensure an unforgettable experience.
Can I view all of your rooftop location options
All the time! We also do proposals for women who want to propose to men. Whoever wants to propose and get married, should! Love is love!
Can I hire an outside vendor to work with the AFP team
Unfortunately, outside vendors are not allowed. We trust our team to do an amazing job planning and capturing your proposal.
Do you photograph proposals for LGBTQ couples
We always strive to secure the location of your choice, however, the availability may vary based on factors like the date, time, and any unforeseen circumstances such as weather. In the event that your first choice isn't available, we'll work closely with you to identify an alternate location that's just as beautiful and fitting for your special moment.

Are the locations guaranteed
Absolutely! We have scoured the city for the best private locations that are perfect for proposals. From private rooftops to terraces to luxurious hotel suites, we have something perfect for your intimate private proposal.
Do you offer private spaces where I can propose
That's fantastic! We're more than happy to work with your pre-arranged plans. Our goal is to help you create the perfect proposal, and if that includes a specific location you've already planned, we're on board. We can adapt to your location and help tailor the proposal to suit the setting while still ensuring it's an unforgettable experience.
What if I have a private event or have already planned my own special location
While we understand the importance of your preferred date, we cannot guarantee it at the checkout stage. We strive to accommodate your desired date, but final confirmation depends on a variety of factors including availability, location, and the specifics of your selected package. Rest assured, our team will work diligently to ensure your proposal is as close to your preferred timing as possible.

CAN YOU GUARANTEE MY DATE WheN I CHECKOUT
That's perfectly alright! Our team is here to help guide you through the process. With our experience and knowledge of stunning locations in and around the city, we can work with you to find a location that resonates with your personal style and story. Feel free to discuss your preferences, whether you're drawn towards a park, a rooftop, or a unique spot, and we'll assist you in choosing the perfect backdrop for your unforgettable moment.
What if I don't know which location is right for me
I understand that weather is very unpredictable in NYC, which is why we always create a “Plan-B” option together. This might mean changing the time/date, or switching to an indoor location. In some instances we have no choice but to go through with the proposal because, at the last minute, it has rained or snowed. In that case, I photograph the moment to the best of my ability. Unfortunately, the Rooftop Proposal Package does not always allow for rescheduling since the venues are so in demand, but most of the options have indoor spaces available and awnings. If it rains, we can still capture the proposal outside before you both head indoors and celebrate with champagne. Read More about this policy in our Terms of Service

Logistics & Policies
We use all top of the line full frame portrait cameras and always have backup equipment with us.
What kind of camera do you use
Proposals are my full-time job and passion, but we can photograph anything. We are often hired by fashion companies and corporations to photograph their events and headquarters.
Additionally, we photograph love in any form – whether you just started dating or want some nice photos to celebrate your anniversary, vow renewal, wedding or elopement.
Do you do other types of photography outside of proposals
