Real Couples // Surprise Proposal: Tomasz + Jessica

One of our favorite things to photograph in NYC is surprise proposals. For as many inquiries as we receive to photograph NYC proposals, it never gets old! We love the anticipation involved in looking forward to such a momentous occasion. We’d be lying if we said we didn’t feel a bit of an adrenaline rush leading up to that moment, too! But most importantly, proposals have a way of taking us back to our own beginning as a couple and of reminding us of the early days. That’s a big reason why we love photographing proposals. We know that when our couples look back at their proposal images, they will be reminded of the early days, too. They’ll be reminded of all the joy they felt when they said yes, and they’ll see time and time again that it all started with love.

Today we’re sharing a surprise proposal at the one and only Metropolitan Museum of Art. It took place last March, on our sweet couple’s fifth dating anniversary inside the Temple of Dendur. It was a perfect location for a classic NYC proposal because it was as picturesque as much as it was unique and exciting. And spacious! Having lots of space to walk around and get different angles is always so important when capturing a proposal! Associate Photographer Emily Tuttle captured our couple from the moment they entered the temple until that special moment when he got down on one knee and she said yes. It was unforgettable in every way, as these two were lucky enough to be surrounded by masterpieces, works of art, and plenty of onlookers, too! We’re honored to share this perfect NYC surprise proposal with you all today. Enjoy this recap and, if you’re looking for a Proposal Photographer in NYC, contact us so we can start planning!

Meet Cinder & Co.: We are Cathy and Christian, a photography duo based out of Manhattan, New York. We have been shooting weddings for years now, and we would love to be a part of yours! Our photography style is simple and modern, yet timeless and romantic, reflective of the couples we work with. Our editing style is modest and organic—a beautiful and honest representation of your day. No two couples are the same, therefore allowing us to be creative in capturing a one-of-a-kind love.

Being a couple and working together has been more rewarding than we ever thought possible, and together this resonates in our work. We both add a little something different to our creative process, and that is what makes us who we are. In our spare time we like to travel, explore, and work on personal projects.
