Brooklyn Engagement Session | NYC wedding photographer
Patrick met Amanda at her birthday party where he was invited by a mutual friend. The night obviously went well for both of them: Patrick left with Amanda’s number, and Amanda with Patrick’s promise to text. But for the next five days, much to Amanda’s annoyance, he didn’t text. Little did she know, those five days were spent figuring out what to say. He finally did text her, but by then it was too little too late and Amanda wrote him off as “a typical guy.” They ran into each other again that following weekend and Patrick couldn’t figure out why Amanda was cold. Luckily, the truth soon came to the surface. He confessed that he had been too nervous, and she instantly forgave him.
In the following early week of dating, Amanda made Patrick a special dinner from scratch, including all of his favorite foods – BLT, Apple Pie, and Vanilla Ice Cream. She even made the Challah bread from scratch! One day not too long ago, a few years after that first homemade dinner, Patrick made Amanda a meal of all HER favorite foods (Pork Chops, Cauliflower and Flan). As they sat down to enjoy, Patrick announced that he was paying her back for that very nice gesture a long time ago, but with interest, and he gave Amanda the ring.
I had such a fun day traipsing around Brooklyn with these two. It’s so clear to anyone who spends a few hours with Amanda and Patrick that they are head-over-heels in love and that their future lives together will be full of non-stop laughter and fun. I can’t wait to photograph their wedding at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden next Spring!
