I Heart New York



Bright lights, bustling crowds, endless corridors of sky-high buildings. There is no other destination in the world quite like New York City. Visitors flock to this urban jungle for many reasons – whether it be for a family holiday, a surprise proposal or a spontaneous NYC elopement. When you make the trip to such an amazing place, you want to be able to treasure the moment and remember your time there for many more years to come. Photographers in NYC are far more impressive than fuzzy selfies taken from your cell phone. The official hashtag of IHNY is #stoptheselfies!

As a team of experienced and passionate photographers in NYC, I Heart New York is your first port of call when looking for a portrait, wedding or proposal photographer. Moreover, we’re the go-to for marriage proposal photography or elopement photography, anywhere in NYC. The team have all lived in The Big Apple for some time now, and each of us have found this city to be a photographer’s dream – from the urban oasis that is Central Park, through to the yellow taxis that polka dot the city, the Lower East Side grit, City Hall, and of course the best slices of pizza in the world. When it comes to taking stunning destination photos in New York, IHNY knows all the best locations, from the Upper West Side to downtown city hall. Photographers with local insider NYC knowledge provide more than amazing photos – they can show you the all best bits that the city has to offer.

Family portraits taken while on vacation in New York are a great way to capture lasting memories of special time spent – show off your happy moments at the City Hall or other iconic landmarks. Our New York portrait photographers are happy to cater to families of up to five at no additional charge – but larger groups can also be accommodated for.

Tim Co.

IHNYFew understand the enigma that is Tim Co… a Jamerician (Jamaican/American) who called Florida home until crash landing in New York City. You will definitely stop during your shoot to have a delicious snack – Tim knows EVERY cool place to eat in the Big Apple.


FounderA true native New Yorker, this man can hail a cab with a whistle! Jason has been shooting for over 25 years and is the creator of the IHNY session. He loves bow ties beyond any normal grown adult, and current estimation of the collection is into the hundreds.

I get what I Heart sessions are all about, but why do I need this?

Your trip to New York City will be over before you know it. Why have blurry cell phone photos with just one of you actually in the photo? We want your friends to be very jealous of those vacation photographs!

What should I wear?

New York City is a fashion capitol so you’re going to see fashion styles from all over the world and then some. You should definitely take this opportunity to buy that dress you thought you might have no reason to wear anywhere else.

We love sites like Rent the Runway (USA) or Lending Luxury (UK) and of course if you keep up with our blog we’ll let you know when sample sales and other fun NYC fashion events are happening! Also our Pinterest boards are full of ideas for different seasons!

What happens if there is bad weather? Do we reschedule?s

Part of the charm of New York City is its unpredictable weather, but that’s okay. If your time in the city allows it we can reschedule but shooting on those just rained on city streets is one of our favorite things. Not to mention umbrellas and rainboots make for real cute accessories. And if the rain is torrential… well we can always stop for a drink right?

I’m in NYC with my family, can we schedule a IHNY family session?

OF COURSE! We love photographing families, children or anyone you’d like to remember forever on your adventure. Please select the “For Families” package upon checking out.

Do you shoot proposals and elopements?

YES WE DO. And we love it! The team at IHNY has shot over 1000 weddings… so does that answer your question?

Additionally we’ll help you with the planning of that perfect proposal or the logistics of your city hall wedding!

Is there anything else we should bring?

For most NYC sessions: Make sure you do bring comfortable shoes to slip on and off if you decide to wear heels ladies! NYC has great public transportation but we still do a lot of walking here.

Please leave any valuables you don’t need with you during the shoot at the hotel because you’ll be setting your bags/coats down during some shots and we don’t want those to disappear!

Bring a smile and get ready to have a great time!
