Love stories are made up of countless beautiful moments, but some stand out as truly extraordinary. I recently had the privilege of being part of one such moment when Casey reached out to me to document his marriage proposal to his girlfriend, Emily. As a engagement and wedding photographer, being entrusted with capturing such a deeply personal and intimate moment was both an honor and a thrilling experience.
The Scene for Casey and Emily:
As dusk settled over Battery Park, the air was filled with a sense of anticipation. Casey and Emily arrived at the Lily Pond, where he got down on one knee, professing his love and asking Emily to be his forever. The raw emotions, the joy on Emily’s face, and the stunning backdrop of the city created a cinematic scene that I was privileged to document.
From the initial surprise on Emily’s face to the joyful tears that followed, every moment was a treasure to capture. The soft glow of the city lights reflected in the pond, adding a magical touch to the atmosphere. The love and connection between Casey and Emily were palpable, creating a series of images that would tell their unique love story.
After the proposal, we took advantage of the picturesque surroundings for an impromptu engagement photoshoot. The laughter, the stolen glances, and the shared excitement were seamlessly woven into the narrative of their love. I very much look forward to capturing Casey and Emily’s wedding day.
