In our current age of recording and sharing all of life’s moments, there is a lot of pressure to get everything leading up to (and including) the wedding perfect. This, of course, includes the proposal. Luckily, for one of our latest clients, Scott and Suzy, their proposal was pretty picture perfect!
Scott contacted us not too long ago to book an increasingly common type of request: a surprise proposal captured by photographers, followed by an impromptu engagement session. Scott and Suzy were visiting NYC from Vancouver to celebrate the holiday season, so when better to ask that special question?
The arrangements were made and on the pre-selected date, Carlos and I waited inside Central Park for the couple to make their appearance. A few minutes later (filled with spy-like stealth action) we were following Scott and Suzy to Scott’s pre-selected spot and we took our positions After pointing out the wonderful view of the city, Scott knelt down on a bridge overlooking the pond and with a beautiful and heartfelt speech, Suzy accepted with a teary and happy YES! This interaction gave much delight to the crowd that formed around them who clapped with joy and shared their congratulations.
After Suzy was able to catch her breath, we introduced ourselves and gave our congratulations. Then we all set off on a jaunt through Central Park and began a picturesque e-session with our Canadian couple. The Holidays in New York are always an enchanting time, and the added romance of a surprise proposal heightened the love and sweetness expressed in the e-session pictures.
