Central Park and Grand Central Station are favorites for classic NYC engagement pictures.

 Meatpacking District is great for edgier, gritty look.

South Street Seaport is where we plan on taking our wedding photos, becauses its beautiful and by the water.

Good luck!

if you like the edgy/industrial look, williamsburg is great

other places include:  dumbo (brooklyn bridge/manhattan skyline as your backdrop), battery park, the botantical gardens and the cloisters (a branch of the metropolitan museum of art dedicated to the middle ages located in Fort Tryon Park)

 Hope this helps!

Does anyone have links to an e-photo session or blog with pics from around NYC?  My fiance and I are doing ours in the end of April and would love to see what places have worked for others.  Thanks!

i would try photographers’ blogs.  my nyc photog (danny weiss) has a blog that he updates with pictures from events.  I’ve seen engagement pictures on there.  i would also try other nyc based photographers to see if they have a blog.

Allison: Might be a stretch for anyone who’s not familiar with the area, but Gantry State Park in Long Island City, Queens has the BEST views of the NY skyline.

we took ours in central park – southeast part of it.  They came out great and our photographer knew the area really well which helps find the best spots.  If you are using a NYC photographer, they should have some good ideas!

Ours was just an hour as we got him to throw it in for free so we stuck with the pretty park locale – otherwise doing some of the grittier shots would have been a lot of fun too…..
