NYC Proposal Photography – Oray and Julia’s Top of the Rock Engagement

The road to true love isn’t always short or simple, but finding your soul mate is well worth the journey.

On November 2nd of this past year, Oray and Julia were preparing to go on their first date.

Both Oray and Julia had had a long series of bad dates and poor experiences by the time they were set to meet each other.  Each of them had separately vowed that this would be their last date before they both abandoned the quest to find that person to spend the rest of their lives with.

Little did they know, they would fall in love instantly on that first date.  Oray says he knew Julia was The One from the moment he met her.  Her kind, caring nature shone through and immediately made clear to him that this was the woman he had been looking for, the partner he wanted to share the rest of his journey with.

“Every day since then has just convinced us more that we were meant to be together,” said Oray.

Knowing they wanted to be together, the couple quickly began to discuss plans for the future.   They originally agreed to wait for a full year from the date that they had met in order to get engaged, but Oray wanted to completely surprise his love by proposing earlier than expected.

So, 7 months into his whirlwind romance with Julia, he reached out to her daughters for advice. He wanted them to be part of the whole process, and knew they’d help him dream up exactly the experience that Julia wanted.

They set about helping him pick a ring that suited her style, and meaningful date—Julia’s mother’s birthday.

To make sure their mother had her dream proposal, complete photos to document the couple’s beautiful love story, her daughters immediately referred Oray to Paparazzi Proposals.

“One daughter sent me the link to Paparazzi Proposals, and I was off to the races!” Oray said.  “They helped me pick the spot and with all the planning.  The Top of the Rock could not have been a better spot!  The views were incredible.”

And so, on June 6th, with the sun shining and with sweeping, photogenic views of all of Manhattan in the background, Oray dropped to one knee and presented Julia with a stunning ring from Kay Jewelers.

Truly surprised and beaming with happiness, she accepted! And our sneaky snapper was there to capture every gorgeous moment of their proposal.  Now, the couple has yet another way to include Julia’s daughters in the magical moment—stunning photographs to commemorate another chapter in their true love story.
