They say that winter is a slower season for wedding photographers (probably because not a lot of people plan to get married when it’s cold out). But this past January was everything but slow for me. In fact, between shooting a wedding, capturing various proposals and engagement sessions, attending a bridal show, and working on […]

I finished editing a session earlier this week and I just couldn’t wait to share the images. This photo shoot I’m sharing today was really special to me. It was an engagement session… but with a twist. A few weeks ago, I received a message from Carly. She was looking for a photographer to capture some engagement photos […]

When you’re shooting a surprise marriage proposal “undercover” you sometimes have to put your acting skills to the test. Because, seriously… what better way is there to conceal yourself in a busy Manhattan location than to hide in plain sight by pretending to be a tourist? And that’s exactly what I did just a few […]

If you look at the photo I shared above, how does the day seem? Warm and serene? It wasn’t. The weekend this photo was captured, NYC experienced extreme cold temperatures under ten (!!) degrees Fahrenheit (It felt like it was under zero degrees due to the wind chill!). Where this photo was taken, extreme gusts […]

I’d heard about ‘Engagement on Ice’ a long time ago. But I honestly didn’t know how incredibly magical it could be until I was there to witness a surprise marriage proposal firsthand. A few weeks ago, I got a call from an excited groom (Karan) who was planning on proposing to his girlfriend (Felesha) at […]

It’s New Year’s Eve! And with 2017 coming to a close, I can’t help but look back at all of the incredible opportunities I had during the year to preserve memories and capture love through photography while working with so many wonderful people. I am just so blow away by all of the incredible people that […]

NYC had its first snow day of the year a little over a week ago. (It’s mid-December! Isn’t that just crazy!?). It snowed non-stop all day that Saturday, and it was FABULOUS! I love snow. There’s something about seeing snow fall (and seeing the ground covered in white right after!) that sparks some holiday cheer […]

They’ve known each other for almost six years. And they’ve endured it all – living far away from their family, and working those tough NYC jobs that threaten to keep you away from those you love. But they managed to push through, and now they’re close to celebrating three years of marriage! Theirs is a true modern day love […]

An ‘Andrea Rodriguez Photography’ couple knows that goofy dance parties in the middle of the living room are the best kinds of parties. And that inside jokes are the best kinds of jokes. An #ARCouple laughs together, cries together, and sticks by each other’s side in the crazy, messy, tough times. Because they are best […]

Last weekend, I had the opportunity to meet the lovely Maya and her charismatic fiancé – AC – for their afternoon engagement session in Brooklyn, New York. It had been cloudy all day that particular Saturday. But almost like on cue, the sun came out and started shining brightly right before their engagement session, which […]
