NYC Greek Engagement Party | Afrodite + Evan

Afrodite and Evan found me through mutual connections while looking for a photographer for their NYC Greek engagement party. The event was held at Ammos Estiatorio‘s Resturant, located at 52 Vanderbilt Ave, New York, NY 10017, which is right next to Grand Central Terminal!

Before heading to their engagement party, we met at the main concourse of Grand Central Terminal to take some portraits of the two of them together. We then walked around the station to get variety in their images. Afrodite chose a stunning white dress which she looked AMAZING in, and people couldn’t help but say “wow” when they walked by, and compliment her! While walking through Grand Central, everyone was congratulating them and wishing them the best! Whoever said New Yorkers aren’t friendly haven’t had engagement photos taken in Grand Central!

After doing portraits inside, we decided to go outside for some NYC street photos! It happen to be almost 60 degrees out in February, and was a beautiful night! Afrodite and Evan danced to some live music under the bridge, and I captured some classic New York City images for them with the taxi’s in the background. We had so much fun running around and getting a large variety of images here!

Once we completed their portraits, we headed to the restaurant for their Greek engagement party! They had friends and family fly in from Greece to help them celebrate! The night was full of excitement getting to see everyone, delicious food, Greek traditions with a priest’s blessing and dressing of jewelry, and of course, dancing! Scroll down to see the un-planned moment that also happened during their NYC Greek Engagement Party!

Wishing these two all the best on their wedding day in Greece this summer!

After everyone celebrated with sparklers, and accidentally setting off the fire alarms, we had an impromptu photoshoot with the fire truck! Thank you NYFD for coming to make sure everyone was safe!
