Anand’s Surprise Wedding Proposal to Nilam in Central Park
It is so thrilling every time I’m asked to photograph any real marriage proposals. They are so much fun and such a privilege to be a part of such a special moment. The expressions are priceless and I love capturing these unique moments in peoples lives. Highly recommended for you guys out there who are thinking of proposing.
Anand, a gastroenterologist, who currently lives in Boston, contacted me a few weeks ago wanting to see if I could photograph his proposal to his girlfriend Nilam, an ER physician, in Central Park while they were here for the weekend. Naturally I said “yes”. So a week before the proposal, Anand came to meet me in New York City while Nilam was away at a medical conference. I took him through Central Park and we hashed out a plan. We visited several ideal places in the park and came up with Plan A and Plan B locations. We also discussed where he would stand and kneel down and where I would be doing my ninja thing so that I would have the best possible angles and the best light. Here are my favorite images of the day! Enjoy!
