How do you establish a relationship with your wedding photographer? How do you ensure that, during your big day, he (or she) captures exactly what you want on film? As we mentioned in another blog post, booking an engagement session is a perfect solution because, during that session, he/she will see how you and your sweetheart interact and what comes naturally to you.

Not sure about where to set the engagement shoot? Agreed, in New York City there are hundreds of beautiful places for engagement photos, so choosing may not be easy. However, we believe that the location should reflect the couple somehow. At A Day Of Bliss, we specialize in all kinds of photo consulting. So we will be happy to provide you with a special proposal for your session, and we will help you choose among your favorite or meaningful spots for your pre-wedding shoot.

Metropolitan Museum

From its stately Central Park to its iconic monuments, New York City is known for its beauty and grandeur. But if you want to experience a great NYC offering, look no further than the Metropolitan Museum area of the Upper East Side along 5th Avenue. This prestigious neighborhood is filled with luxurious stores, world-class restaurants, and picturesque views, making it a perfect place for engaged couples looking for a romantic outing.

Central Park engagement photo

Central Park

Central Park is always one of the most sought-after locations in New York and around the world for engagement photos. Regardless of the season, Central Park always provides iconic, breathtaking backdrops. Whether you take a rowboat out at the Boathouse, take shots at the romantic and charming Bethesda Terrace and Fountains, or visit the grand Mall, there is no shortage of gorgeous locations for engagement photos in Central Park.

Meatpacking District engagement photo

The Meatpacking District

The Meatpacking District, grounded on beautiful cobblestone streets, is a hip, urban location with stunning cityscapes. It is home to high-end boutiques, the Whitney Museum of American Art and some of the best restaurants in the city. In the Meatpacking District, the possibilities are infinite.

West Village

West Village is filled with brownstones, distinct architecture and so much character. Rich in culture, this is the perfect location that exudes romance. Greenwich Village has a reputation of being a creative epicenter to some of the most inspiring and talented people in the world. What better place for engagement photos?

The Edge engagement photo

The Edge

The Edge is unlike any location on earth. Being on the 100th floor of the 30 Hudson Yards, it is the highest outdoor observation deck in the Western Hemisphere and the fifth highest in the world!

The Top of the Rock engagement photo

The Top of the Rock

Our post about the best locations for engagement photos in NYC could not overlook this. Are you wondering why? The Top of the Rock has better positioning than the Empire State Building, offering views of Central Park, Manhattan’s south side, as well as both the Empire State Building and the Freedom tower. To say the views are astounding would be an understatement. You need to purchase tickets for admission, so be sure to plan ahead.

Tribeca engagement photo


Tribeca is surrounded by beautiful red brick and cobblestone streets, lined with hip boutiques and trendy restaurants. There are plenty of coffee shops and cafes to sit at and have a latte or pastry with your fiancé.
