Matt & Ely - Prospect Park Proposal

I was super excited to get to witness and photograph Matt propose to his boyfriend Ely on a beautiful autumn afternoon in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park recently! Matt had sent Ely out on an all-day scavenger hunt that eventually ended up here. The more I texted with Matt as the moment drew closer, the more nervous I got. I kept shaking the whole time during the proposal. LOL You would’ve thought I was the one doing the proposing. :P

Congratulations once again, guys! Cheers to a happy future for both of you! :D

Jen & Eddie - Central Park Engagement

I recently met Jen and Eddie at the Jazz Age Lawn Party on Governors Island this past summer. Out of the hundreds of couples I got to photograph at this event, Jen and Eddie were actually the very first ones. I remember them being so happy and cheerful and very willing to take direction in order to get some great pictures. After I photographed them Eddie pulled me aside and asked if I also do engagement photos since they might be needing some in the next few months. Since they were so affectionate toward each other and so easy to work with, I eagerly said yes. And now here we are in Central Park on a beautiful autumn afternoon taking their engagements photos.

Congrats and best of luck to this good-looking couple!! :D 

Michael & James - NYC Marriage Bureau

Felt sooo honored to get to photograph my friends getting married as their loving family looked on at New York City’s Marriage Bureau recently. I had the pleasure of meeting James several years ago at a Meetup where we instantly hit it off and have remained good friends ever since. Once he introduced Michael to the group soon after that, we all knew that they would be inseparable. And now, five years later, here they are getting married! It didn’t take a psychic to see that coming.  :D

Congratulations, you two! Cheers to many years of a great and happy marriage!!
