South Street Seaport is one of my favorite locations for an engagement or a wedding photo shoot in New York City. The area is very charming and full of character. It features some of the oldest architecture in downtown Manhattan and includes the largest concentration of restored early 19th-century commercial buildings in the city.
Despite a very cold day we had a wonderful photo shoot. The courageous couple graciously posed for my camera trying to ignore the wintry gusts of wind. Scrolling through the online preview gallery a few days later, we all agreed that the result was well-worth it!
Amber and David’s, my picture-perfect couple, met online. Here is their love story.
How and where did you and David meet?
We met on OKcupid. Our first date was on Valentine’s Day.
For how long have you been dating?
We have been dating for three years before we got engaged.
How and where did he propose?
The proposal was so wonderful! He surprised me by taking me to dinner and then he proposed near riverside park by the water. Then he took me straight to his rooftop for a party and surprised me with all my friends and family.
Why did you pick Essex House as your wedding venue?
We did many site visits and almost chose a venue in LI but then realized we ultimately and truly wanted a Manhattan wedding. The decor on the walls looked like a dream when we first walked in.
