New York’s Strand Book Store Proposal and Photoshoot: A magical moment captured on camera

Nowadays, proposing at home or in front of friends and family may not be as romantic as it once was. So, to make sure that your marriage proposal happens on the grandest scale possible, you might want to think about doing it in a venue that’s made for romance—like the iconic Strand Book Store in New York City. Inspired by this beautiful photoshoot that captured a marriage proposal at the store, here are some photos that makes you decide to make a romantic move.

Here’s what this couple had to say about their shoot:

We met in college and have been together 6 years, living in NYC for the past 2. Since lockdown we haven’t been able to travel home, so I decided to propose right before we fly back to Ireland next week. I picked The Strands rare book room as my Fiancée is an avid reader and the photos came out beautifully. The shoot went amazing. Lauren was so professional and made us feel comfortable and at ease. She uploaded the photos that same night and there were so many good ones for us to share with friends and family.
