When George first reached out asking if I was interested in capturing his surprise proposal to his longtime girlfriend, Kaitlin, I was pumped! We all attended Fordham University together as undergrads: I hadn't seen either of them in years.
Coordinating the timing and plan of the actual proposal was complicated, as we risked the chance of Kaitlin recognizing me beforehand. George and I exchanged several emails back and forth plotting and scheming about how the day would unfold at the Botanical Gardens in the Bronx. In the end, everything went off without a hitch thanks to the help of iphone tracking apps, detailed maps, and sneaky text messages.
The above photos were taken after he proposed. We spent about twenty minutes snapping a few unofficial "engagement shots." The photo below depicts her expression right after he popped the question. A favorite for sure--pure emotion right there.
