International recognition

It’s been three years since my first appearance in USA media. At November 2014th New York Times published a story about me in New York Times in Sunday Editions. If you haven’t seen it yet you can read it here www.nytimes.com.

After I was featured as NYC’s “secret proposal photographer” in The New York Times, my work captured the interest of a great many others worldwide. I’ve since been featured in magazines and newspapers across the globe, from the USA to China!


Can you capture my proposal on video?

Yes, definitely! In fact, I think it’s necessary to have the proposal not only photographed but also filmed. Video gives a wonderfully rounded perspective to your proposal that perfectly complements the photography.

I shot and edited my first marriage proposal video in the summer of 2015 using two cameras and a drone. The video was published online and quickly went viral: it became one of the ‘Best Proposal Videos of 2015,’ awarded by HowHeAsked.com, one of the most popular wedding proposal websites around. I have plenty of film package options available to suit all budgets. Just send me a message with your ideas and I’ll get back to you with some suggestions.

Where can I find out more about the packages do you offer?

Just send me an email with your enquiry. I have packages to suit every budget, from an intimate proposal in Central Park when morning has just broken to an extravagant engagement party on a rooftop bar!

Can you help me with an idea?

Definitely. I have a creative team behind me, including a proposal planner, to help build the perfect proposal for your partner. Just send me a message and we can pencil in a chat.
