One of the best things about my job is that I have the opportunity to capture some of the most romantic, heartfelt and important moments in my client’s lives. When Andres asked me to photograph his surprise proposal in scenic, autumnal in Central Park, I was thrilled to be a part of it all and I said, “yes” immediately! What a romantic surprise  proposal it was !! This two beautiful couple knocked it out of the ball park in Central Park, New York City..


Central Park, NYC is a beautiful place and it may just be at its finest in the autumn, when colorful leaves add so much dimension to its landscapes. In addition , Andres chose bowl bridge,The Bow Bridge is a iron bridge located in Central Park, New York City, crossing over The Lake and used as a pedestrian walkway


Andres created the perfect proposal for his true love, Juliana. They met in the park for a picnic and she had no idea that he was going to pop the question. Andres and Juliana are from Clifton, New Jersey. Photographing this good-looking pair was so much fun. They are both very photogenic and Juliana face really glowed once Andres shocked her (in a good way!) by offering her an engagement ring.

Central Park is the ultimate backdrop for any type of photo shoot, so I made a point of taking pictures as the couple strolled and dined al fresco. Andres , I captured the couple during and after the proposal. If you have a romantic proposal planned, be sure to get in touch today. I’ll make sure that every special moment is captured. 

This Couple Is So Happy

Now that they’re engaged, Andres and Juliana have a lifetime of happiness to look forward to. The photos that I took make it clear that these two are best friends. Both of them were radiant and one of the most beautiful things to capture with cameras is the “lit up” look of two people who are in love. Capturing these moments is my passion. It’s the reason why I love my job so much.



These two made it easy for me. They were already inside of a magical moment. I used my skill, technique and experience in order to frame every shot perfectly. I take care with photo composition, lighting and focus. I leave nothing to chance because I knew that these once-in-a-lifetime moments don’t come along every day.  My weapon of choice for this surprise proposal  is the incredible NIKON 810 I love the dynamic range that comes out of this camera. 



I love this romantic proposal that I photographed it was so much fun to do . I want to thank Andres and Juliana for choosing my photography services @ Hector Rivera Photography . I also want to wish this happy and beautiful couple all of the best. With any luck, I’ll hope to hear from the to capture  their special wedding moments soon.  I know that they’ll be happy together forever. Congratulations, Andres and Juliana!
